I wanted to share a solution about Pamac. When I was using Pamac in Xfce this application was using a clear theme even if I changed the theme in dark in the XFCE panel configuration … My favourite theme is Qogir-Dark so I searched a method to force this theme works in dark mode in EndeavourOS …
To do so, of course you will have to install and use the theme “qogir-gtk-theme” … if not installed type:
sudo pacman -S qogir-gtk-theme
And of course if you like the Qogir theme install the Qogir icons with this command:
sudo pacman -S eos-qogir-icons
Change your theme in the Xfce Configuration Panel “Appearence/Style” for Qogir-Dark
Change also the icons theme in “Apparence/Icons” for matching with “Qogir-Dark”
Then open a terminal and edit the environment file in /etc with your favourite text editor
sudo xed /etc/environment
… and add this line at the end of the file:
Save the file and restart your system …
Seems to work on many Arch Distros …
I made this simple trick on others Arch distros and Pamac is now in dark mode !
Thanks. Just be careful not to DDoS the AUR.
pacman is always in dark mode
Not always sorry … almost in the gui version !
Specially in Xfce and many others Arch Distros, Pamac stays in clear mode even if you choose a dark mode … On Arch, Manjaro, CachyOS or ArcoLinux it is so … that’s why I made this post
that is the terminal itself and not pacman itself.
Those distro’s and maintainers are the reason those are transparent and suck.
This works very well, thank you !
Funny because it’s the terminal, not a GUI.
Oh, he didn’t get the joke. How sad.
Oh, he didn’t realise that he didn’t get the joke. Hilarious!
Thank you … have a nice day !
Of course I use the gui version of pamac not the cli … otherwise I would have not talked about this problem !
Just realised that English probably isn’t your first language. It’s a good and useful post. Thanks.
You are right … english is not my native language … it was surely humor but I didnt realised ! The french section has disappeared from the forum and my sense of humor with it
Thanks for your reaction
It’s still alive and kicking, it seems.
