Mouseover desktop icons is not working?


I'm a newb. I dont know how i did this but when i mouse over desktop icons i lost that nice detail popup. I tried going to Enable icon mouseover effects and checked it, restarted X but still not working. All I see when i mouseover a desktop icon is its name. Any ideas? Long live forums! Thanks.

I'm using Mandrake 2008 KDE 3.5.7. The only config i did is install an icon theme.

Make sure that Control Center -> Desktop -> Behavior -> General -> Show Tooltips is on. If it isn't click on Show Tooltips and Apply.
