I just installed Lubuntu 13.10, replacing Lubuntu 13.04. I have my
/home directory on a separate partition, so all my files and settings etc. are right where they are. This also meant I now have Evince 3.10. On Lubuntu 13.04, I think I had Evince 3.8 (not sure), but it had a menubar and a toolbar. I've hidden the toolbar, but the menubar was still available.
Now, when I open a pdf, I see neither the toolbar nor the menubar. I learnt that the menubar has been removed in favor of a more powerful toolbar in Evince 3.10, but couldn't find anything on the net as to why my toolbar is hidden. Then, I noticed that if I go fullscreen with F11 and back with ESC, the toolbar shows up. But again disappears as soon as I click on the pdf page.
So, I thought I'd try and clear all the evince settings, but I couldn't find much. There is no
~/.config/evince. The only thing that I found seems to be related to this problem is
~/.local/share/gvfs-metadata. If I clear out that folder, and open a pdf, the toolbar shows up correctly and behaves right. Until I close it and open it again that is. If evince saves a file called
home in that directory, then the next time I open the pdf, the toolbar is gone. If I clear the folder again, the toolbar appears.
I'm not sure if all this is intentional, but if that is the case, all I want is how do I summon the toolbar when its hidden, when I need to check the page number I'm in, for example.
Thank you for any help with this.
