Mint 18 Mate Kdenlive tooltips blank

Post by Statik »

Hi all,
I've gotten Kdenlive running great except for the missing tooltips. I haven't been able to find anything online about getting them working. Can anyone help?

Thanks!

"I haven't been able to find anything online about getting them working." There's a small cluster of KDE resources that you should add to your Mate...

I had already installed those as well as several others from the kdenlive page but I still have no tool tips.

OK, I've figured out the problem. Its a theme issue. The text and the background are both the same color on the tool tips. Not sure how to change it yet but it isn't an installation issue.

Thanks

Hey, I was having the same issue. You got me half of the way there, thanks.

All I had to do was go to the Settings Menu and set the Style to "Breeze" or "Windows". The tooltips are now visible.

I too face a problem with Kdenlive since last day.
The timeline / Frame bar (?) is not showing in the timeline when the video is playing.
also the keyboard shortcut "SPACE" is not woking for play option,
The video plays only when it is pressed on clipmonitor.
I tired to reinstall with sudo apt-get remove kdenline, purge and autoremove commands.
But the reinstallation brings the same issue again.
Any way to solve it?
thanks

Hello - this is now January 2018 but just in case someone finds this post - I had this same infuriating problem and solved it (eventually) by accident.

In the SETTINGS drop down menu - I selected STYLE and then selected either WINDOWS of FUSION

Bingo!

Tool tips are now white text over a black background.

I sincerely hope this works for others.

Ha ha - I just read the last post on this thread - and yep - if I'd bothered to read that far, I'd have learned :-)

Embarrassed now (blush)
