How to find Mlt profiles?


After months of happy use, when I try to run Kdenlive I am now asked:

"Cannot find your Mlt profiles, please give path:

No matter what directory I select, the question returns and is continually repeated.

I am unable to run Kdenlive, or even get to the main screen in order to reinstall Mlt profiles or configure them.

How can I allow for Kdenlive to boot so that I can enjoy using it again?

Thank you


Typically it is /usr/share/mlt/profiles

i know this is a very old post but i found it on a google search.

I had the same problem after a new install of my system (openSUSE 12.3 with KDE SC 4.10) but with old/existing home folder.

The path above in the second post doesn´t worked for me and after a little search i found out that i had to use /usr/share/mlt-5/profiles and kdenlive opened again.

Maybe that might be helpful for someone in the future.
