PDFPCRC(5) FreeBSD File Formats Manual PDFPCRC(5)

pdfpcrc - pdfpc configuration file

pdfpc(1) first reads its system-wide configuration file, followed by the user-specific one if it exists.

The following commands are accepted:
bind <key> <func> [<arg>]
Bind a key to a function, passing a specified argument for functions which require one
unbind <key>
Unbind the given key
unbind_all
Clear all the key bindings
mouse <button> <func>
Bind a mouse button to a function
unmouse <button>
Unbind a mouse button
unmouse_all
Clear all the mouse bindings
A list of all possible functions can be obtained via the -L command line option of pdfpc(1).

Some permanent changes can be configured via the config file. The syntax is:
option <option_name> <option_value>
The following option_name's are recognized:
black-on-end
Add an additional black slide at the end of the presentation (bool, Default is false).
current-height
Percentage of the height of the presenter screen to be used for the current slide (int, Default is 80).
current-size
Percentage of the presenter screen to be used for the current slide (int, Default is 60).
disable-caching
see pdfpc(1)
disable-compression
see pdfpc(1)
disable-input-autodetection
Do not automatically detect type (pen or eraser) of tablet input devices (bool, Default is false).
disable-scrolling
Disable scrolling events on the presenter window (bool, Default is false).
enable-auto-srt-load
Try loading video subtitle files automatically. For each video media, pdfpc will append ".srt" to the media URI and attempt to load a subtitle file (in the SRT format) from that location (bool, Default is false).
move-on-mapped
Dual-monitor full-screen window placement is a tricky business. Some window managers (e.g., FVWM) ignore the placement if made before the window is shown. This option enables a workaround (bool, Default is false).
next-height
Percentage of the height of the presenter screen to be used for the next slide (int, Default is 70).
overview-min-size
Minimum width for the overview miniatures, in pixels (int, Default is 150).
pointer-color
Set the pointer color. Can be a literal color name or a #rrggbb representation (default is red).
pointer-opacity
Set the pointer opacity in percent (int, default is 50).
pointer-size
Set the initial pointer size, in pixels (int, default is 10).
presentation-screen
Screen to be used for the presentation (output name, see e.g. "xrandr --listmonitors").
presenter-screen
Screen to be used for the presenter (output name).
switch-screens
Switch the presentation and the presenter screen (bool, Default is false).
time-of-day
Display the current time instead of the timer
timer-pace-color
Enable color hints of the timer, continuously indicating whether the presentation is progressing according to the expected pace (bool, Default is true). See the timer operation description in pdfpc(1).
toolbox
Show the toolbox on startup (bool, Default is false).
toolbox-direction
Set the toolbox direction. LtoR, RtoL, TtoB, or BtoT for the left-to-right, right-to-left, top-to-bottom, or botton-to-top, respectively (Default is LtoR).
toolbox-minimized
Set the initial toolbox state minimized (bool, Default is false).

Key names can be obtained with the help of the xev utility. Note that names are case sensitive. Modifiers can be specified in the form <mod>+<key> where <mod> is one of S (for shift), C (for control) and A/M (for Alt/Meta). E.g.
bind S+Next next10
A shorthand for specifying key combinations constituting shift and an alphabetic character is to simply give the uppercase version of the alphabetic character. For example, to bind <shift>+r to the 'reset' function, use
bind R reset
To always activate the black-on-end option, one could add the following to the config file
option black-on-end true

@SYSCONFDIR@/pdfpcrc
System-wide configuration file
$XDG_CONFIG_DIR/pdfpc/pdfpcrc
User configuration file (if $XDG_CONFIG_DIR is not set, $HOME/.config will be used).
