[OPEN] Evince 3.30.2 "go back" button/shortcut

Post by rpengo » Mon Mar 04, 2019 6:38 pm

Dear all,
first of all let me say a huge thank you to the whole community behind this really nice distro. I have liked Arch-based distros for a long time, but this one manages to combine a sleek look with an incredible speed. Also, thank you so much for welcoming me in this forum.

So, here is my question: I work in academia and hence have to read a lot of PDF/DjVu documents on my computer. I really like the brand new version of Evince that comes with ArcoLinux, but I have one small problem: when I click a link in a PDF I would like to be able to "go back", either by clicking a button or (ideally) via a shortcut.
The shortcut menu under the "eye" button in Evince suggests Alt+P as a possible solution, but when I click it nothing seems to happen. Has anyone of you experienced a similar problem? I also tried to locate the shortcut config file for Evince in vain (under ~/.config/ or ~/.locale/): does anyone know where it is located?

Thank you so much for your kind help, and sorry for the bothering if this question is too obvious.

ALT + P is a shortcut of ArcoLinux that is going to give you the previous wallpaper with variety.

That is probably why it is not working.

Xfce settings keyboard and delete that keyboard shortcut and try again.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.

Hi Erik, thank you so much for your answer!
Unfortunately, I have already removed that shortcut (in fact, I uninstalled Variety tout court and then I removed all its shortcuts from the Keyboard settings).
Do you think that the shortcut might still be registered somewhere?

Thank you so much for the very quick reply!

I would not venture to guess where.

You can install arcolinuxd in virtualbox and then some basic desktop and NOT install variety or shortcuts and just evince and see if it is working then
