How to stop EOS-theming?

I just did an update, and after reboot my beloved theming was gone, and I had to run through Plasma again to get it right.

This being KDE remembering exactly where everyhing is takes a while, and I don’t want to do it again after certain updates.

Can I just remove eos-theming, or is there some hitch?

What exactly was gone? The wallpaper, or something else?
EndeavourOS wallpaper can be re-installed with the Welcome app.

No, that’s the thing, it reinstalled the eos theming, so I had to install my own wallpaper, log in screen, et.c again.

I simply just want to stop the EOS theming installing itself again.

@joekamprad knows that package better than I do. Hopefully he can answer.

EDIT: it might be a KDE issue as well, but I’m not using KDE…

Ok, thanks for answering anyhow.

so simple uninstall the theming package is not helping?

I haven’t tried that yet, as I wanted to check with you guys, so I wouldn’t remove something esential.

It’s endeavour-theming right?

also package is not installing any configs it only copy images inside directories for EndeavourOS wallpaper and Logos.
We do install configs for loginmanager and grub on initial install but this will not be installed again with any package.

package() {
	cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}"
        install -d "${pkgdir}/usr/share/endeavouros"
	install -m644 *.png "${pkgdir}/usr/share/endeavouros"
	install -m644 *.svg "${pkgdir}/usr/share/endeavouros"
        install -d "${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps"
	install endeavouros.svg "${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/endeavouros.svg"
	install -m644 endeavouros.svg "${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/endeavouros.svg"
	install endeavouros.png "${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/endeavouros.png"
	install -m644 endeavouros.png "${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/endeavouros.png"
        cd "${srcdir}/${pkgname}-${pkgver}/backgrounds"
	install -d "${pkgdir}/usr/share/endeavouros/backgrounds"
	install -m644 *.png "${pkgdir}/usr/share/endeavouros/backgrounds"

So how do I stop it from changing my wallpaper?

i am in no way a kde-plasma user… may something like saved session is doing this.
could you post /etc/sddm.conf.d/kde_settings.conf

Where is your wallpaper? Is it somehow conflicting with EndeavourOS wallpapers?

@manuel /usr/share/endeavouros/scripts/ from cleaner-script could be an issue?
may kde is putting this to autostart?

I believe not, but must say I has problems with KDE autostart earlier…

No , I just don’t want to go through the hustle of reinstalling the wallpaper I want every time there’s an update of the eos-theme.

Just to make sure, do you mean package endeavouros-theming? Or something else?
That package removes all its previous wallpapers before updating.

if you are using the same directory or same name as the wallpapers we ship it could be related…

The same directory. I’ll change that, and hope for the best. I’s not like it’s a major issue, it’s just mildly anoying. :slight_smile:

Yes, I mean endeavouros-theming. Is it safe to remove that package?

that’s the issue… as package install will overwrite the directory…

If you do so you will lost also endeavoros logo inside kde system settings, but nothing vital for the system.
but sddm (loginmanager) is still resetting ?

When updating this package, it removes the following files if they exist:


Then it updates the new files to their places. The new files may be a bit different.
More details here:

Maybe you could install your pictures to another folder under /usr/share to be on the safe side?

Some EndeavourOS apps do use those theming pictures, so if you uninstall the theming package, these apps show wrong pictures or icons.
