Kdenlive quick colourfix in Linux Mint Cinnamon
Recently I've been going through old footage I shot on MiniDV several years ago. In the past I've used OpenShot to edit video, but I did quite a bit of looking at what people are currently using and Kdenlive seemed to get mentioned at lot more, so I decided to give it a shot. One annoyance immediately popped up was that all tool-tips were showing up as white text on a yellow background (unreadable). Now I'm pretty sure this wasn't an intentional, Kdenlive was most likely developed in a KDE environment where the theme changed this white on yellow behaviour, but in Mint Cinnamon 18 it doesn't look good.
My first thought was to try:
Settings > Theme > Configuration
But since we're not running KDE we get this error:
The fix is just a little lower:
Settings > Style > Fusion
This changes the Kdenlive look slightly, but at least now we see the tooltips correctly in Linux Mint Cinnamon.
