remove 'tooltips' in bianca menu

Postby matva » Sun Feb 25, 2007 9:33 pm

when im browsing through the bianca menu items, some annoying tooltip boxes saying brief descriptions of the item show up. They kind of get in my way, is there any way to disable them?

Thanks

hi folks...i have the same question. thought maybe this reply would bump it up. i'm using cassandra in virtualbox so there's no beryl support. so i don't know what my window manager is. i know how to disable tooltips in gnome but this apparently doesn't work with mint. should it?

Welcome to Mint evensteven
You give the right place to remove tooltips and I suppose that should work in a virtualbox

Doesn't seem to work in Mint Menu though.

Could the tooltips be coming from something else (Beryl, Compiz, or...)?

Hi evensteven
as you have already noticed disabling tooltips_enabled will not work for mintMenu. Mainly for one reason: I didn't knew that such an options exists ;)

Next version ( 2.4 - 2.3 is already set and should have been released this week ) of mintMenu will take gconf-editor>>apps/panel/global>>tooltips_enabled into consideration and will also add its own option to disable tooltips.

You would think it should; but alas it doesn't for me.

Hi, new here. I've just installed Cassandra and have updated everything. Unfortunately I still cannot disable the tooltips with the gconf-editor method. I also cannot find any option to disable the tooltips from the MintMenu preferences. Has any one been successful in disabling these tooltips? Thanks.

Edit: I just noticed this solution if you're using Beryl as well:
http://www.linuxmint.com/forum/viewtopi ... tip&t=2643

Works for me, but only when running Beryl. Any way to keep the tooltips from showing otherwise?

hi jtsai256

You can't disable the tooltips in the current released version of mintMenu.
In the development version you can already disable them, but there are some more things I want to work on, before releasing it.

Trying to disable those annoying (and redundant) tooltip popups in mintMenu on two computer--one running Celina and the other running Daryna. Is there still no way to do this? Looks like the last response here was July 2007. Its now 11 months later!

Any thoughts? Tanks in advance...
