What do you mean with both? I my titles in only one 16_9 folder as I don't use 4_3 titles. In the tutorial I give the "official" folder which did not work for me and another folder which I used to have it working. Which of these did you try?

Is your title of the correct size i.e. 1920x1080 for 16_9?

What does "ls -l /usr/lib/pymodules/python2.7/openshot/titles/16_9/nameofyouttitle.svg" (replace nameofyourtitle) show you? For me the permissions look like the following:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 10595 2012-08-07 15:07 ...

Did you restart Openshot after placing the title inside that folder?

But what does the ls -l command for the title show? Maybe you copied it to the wrong place or created a link to a location with wrong permissions.

Which version of openshot are you using?

Can someone else confirm that the procedure works in principle?

The problem is solved and no longer need to make a custom title. I failed to look at the "layout tab" under properties of the clip and again failed to learn to use it properly now that I have done so I no longer need this thank you for your help and time

I might even write a tutorial on how to do this if I ever can get gtk record my desktop to work properly!

I use ffmpeg from the command terminal to record my desktop (you might have to adjust the resolution an :0.0): ffmpeg -f x11grab -r 25 -s 1280x720 -i :0.0 ~/desktop.mpg

What came to my mind is that the folder will not work when you pulled openshot from the bazaar repository. I only tested it for the ppa version. For the bazaar version I put the titles into /youropenshotfolder/openshot/titles/16_9/ or /youropenshotfolder/openshot/titles/4_3/ depending on the format.
