That works perfectly fine as long as you don't use Unity what you both most likely do. See this launchpad bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sourc...ug/1521302 - works fine with fluxbox

Edit: With the fixed compiz and current Krypton branch it also works on unity.

No Debug Log no issue.

I don't use Unity and it is reported to happen in more:

Quote:Errors when switching from fullscreen to windowed mode at least occur with XFCE (xfwm), MATE (metacity) and LXDE (Openbox) and Fluxbox WM.
Actually in that report Unity wasn't even mentioned https://trac.kodi.tv/ticket/17062

I don't use compiz also. Happens to me in two different OS, one with Openbox and the other with Xfwm.

ps- not talking about the fix because I did not test it, I don't know how.

You can backup .Kodi and test with a nightly. Afterwards downgrade again.

With unity: compiz is meant as unity bases on it.

So I'm assuming that that fix is already in the latest nightly, right?

If so I just tested it in a virtual machine using Linux Lite 3.4 32bit (Xfce, xfwm) and I have bad news and good news:

- the bad news is that "\" key does absolutely nothing

- the good news it that I created a xml file inside ~/.kodi//userdata/keymaps with this content:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<!-- Button Ids: -->
<!-- 0: left -->
<!-- 1: right -->
<!-- 2: middle -->
<!-- 3/4/5/6: extra -->

<keymap>
<global>
<mouse>
<click id="2">togglefullscreen</click>
</mouse>
</global>

</keymap>
and by pressing the middle mouse button it works flawlessly. By clicking the middle mouse button coming out of fullscreen to windowed mode Kodi now remembers both windowed's size and place.

Post a Debug Log please with you pressing "\" - I think it's a keyboard layout configuration issue and "\" is not doing what you think.

I'm so sorry, you're totally right and it does indeed work.

So many years using VMs and the one time I had to test a key which is always misconfigured to portuguese keyboard I forgot to set portuguese keyboard layout on the VM...

So it is working as expected, I believe the issue is solved.
Thank you very much for everything.

Thanks to you for coming back and being that polite even with me being snippish at times :-)
