Nicotine-Plus search box permanently greyed-out

I just installed the latest version of Nicotine-plus from the packman repository and no matter what i try, the search box remains permanently greyed-out and won’t allow me to type into it.

Thank you.

Did a complete reinstall today after trying some other distros and problem persists with this package on Opensuse.
