How to undo Okular viewport settings in MEPIS11 ?

#1 Post by eemaestro » Tue Feb 04, 2014 12:12 pm

I was viewing a .pdf file in Okular and messed up the Okular menu. I wanted to make
the vertical toolbar on the lefthand side that has icons on it disappear.
Instead, I made the viewport border(s) disappear, and the horizontal toolbars
atop the viewport, including the one starting w/ File. Now I can't do
anything with Okular. Well, Alt-F4 kills it, and that's about it.

I am wondering if there's a file which contains Okular viewport attributes.
Does anybody have an idea where to poke around on my system for such
a file? I would like to undo the changes I made to my viewport, and was wondering
if I could do this without reinstalling Okular. If need be, I could create
a new user account and copy the Okular-viewport-attributes-file from it
to my own account, overwriting the one I messed up. If such a thing
exists and if I can find it.

Does this make any sense ? Maybe there's an easier way to restore Okular's
default viewport attributes ?

You should be able to edit this setting file, or rename/delete it to get back to the system defaults:

~/.kde/share/config/okularrc

"~" being shorthand for your home folder.

Thanks, Stevo. Renaming that file got back my default viewport attributes in Okular. A new file got created when I closed Okular.
