|Window views after a new install.|
This is what it should look like if you have recently installed Kdenlive. After I accidentally shut down a few windows, Kdenlive became unusable. It kept crashing so I removed the application, rebooted the computer, reinstalled Kdenlive only to find the corrupt settings had returned (which means there must be a hidden config file somewhere on my HDD). Researching Youtube I came across this:-
So this tells me there is a hidden file called kdenliverc that needs to be deleted. Where he found his config file as shown in the video, was in a completed different location to mine.
Instead of deleting the file I renamed it to kdenliverc000 which results in Kdenlive thinking it is a new install and proceeds to create a new kdenliverc.
This did the trick, now I can get back into editing videos..
Kdenlive is not the easiest video editors to use but it is free, and works well on Linux. Without this I would not be able to create any video content I would be prod of.
