only full screen ...

I will use darktable on freeBSD but its run only in full screen mode and the lower part is behind the system tray …
How can I set up darktable in a windowed mode ?

Thanks and regards,

Full screen or windowed is a function of your window manager. Which window manager are you using?


F11 should toggle between full screen and window mode.

Can you post a screenshot? What distro are you using? What command are you using to start darktable?

(Offenblende 007) #8
  • freeBSD 11.1
  • start only with the button in the taskbar
  • I can quit darktable only with STRG-Q

What does the .desktop file that launches darktable say for the exec line?

/usr/local/bin/darktable %U

Your other programs are windowed, I assume?

  • the whole system and all other programs work flawlessly - only darktable has this problem …

If you just type darktable in your terminal, can you paste any output?


Does pressing Alt + F3 open the context menu ? Is there an option to switch to a window mode?
