Kdenlive - qt5.5.1 integration

16-04-xenial

I don’t know if this is a bug. I don’t think so. That’s why I’m posting here.
After the updates of the last days I open kdenlive and the file-dialog was completely empty. Only the frame, no widgets.
Making a video without the chance to save the project is a boring thing.
The kdenlive version is 15.12.1 compiled against qt 5.5.1.
Qtconfig is bundled to Ubuntu MATE 16.04. This is great. Other distros comes without this by default.
But for qt5 configuration you need qt5ct. I can’t find it in the ubuntu repositories.
I installed it from webupd8

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install qt5ct

and added
export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=“qt5ct”
to ~/.profile

After a new login kdenlive works great again.
Perhaps you can add qt5ct to the Software Boutique, Martin?


Include QT5 config app

Thanks for the feedback. Very interesting. This is will a little bit of work and will require to package qt5ct in out own PPA and also include and Xsession export configuration to enable the integration. This may take a little time to do, but I’ll take a look and see what can be accomplished :slight_smile:

Hi and thanks for feedback ! Maybe my mistake, but Ubuntu Mate 16.04 up to date get the 15.12.3 version.
And i had no problem to open and record any project …
