In Opensuse Tumbleweed melt is in
On Kdenlive start it can not find the profiles and ask for the correct path. Supplying the correct path will get you in to Kdenlive, but the setting is not saved in:
MLT Profiles Folder
On restart you will have to supply the path again.
You can not manually edit the MLT Profiles Folder field and have it saved.
My temporary solution is to copy
Now Kdenlive starts normally. I suppose a better temp fix is to make a shortcut instead of copying, but the best fix is to have Kdenlive also check the mlt-6 path and be able to save the edited field "MLT Profiles Folder".
I think that this bug should be titled "MLT profiles path settings is ignored".
In kdenlinerc path stored correctly:
But at every startup kdenlive tries "/usr/share/mlt/profiles/".
I checked the file kdenliverc as you suggested and you are right. The setting is there but kdenlive does not honor it.
However, my title is still accurate.
/usr/share/mlt/profiles/ is wrong on Opensuse Tumbleweed
Even if kdenlive honored the setting in the file kdenliverc, on initial first run, the user is presented with an error condition that they must resolve on their own.
