Disable tooltips in MintMenu

Postby Aldora on Thu Aug 18, 2011 6:20 pm

Hello everyone,

I have opened the gconf-editor, searched for and disabled all of the tooltip checkboxes for the mint menu and panel with no effect. Is there an easy way to disable the tooltips?

Also, I would recommend not having them on by default in later versions- they just repeat the same information in the "application comments" and get in the way of selecting another menu item.

Thanks!

Aldora, if you want to disable all tooltips, open /usr/share/themes/theme_name/gtk-2.0/gtkrc and add to beginning of the file
Code: Select all
gtk-enable-tooltips = 0

For all themes you are using, and then re-set it in the Appearance properties.

Actually, if you completely disable tooltips, you get problems with scrolling in nautilus for some reason. So, a way to avoid it is not to disable tooltips but increase the delay time of its appearance with gtk-tooltip-timeout (in milliseconds). Also there is no need to edit every theme's gtkrc file, you can put «.gtkrc-2.0» file with that line in your home directory instead.
