Back in Manjaro days, I’d just install the Kvantum-manjaro package, set my QT theme, then have all my qt apps follow said theme. It was easy as hell, but it seems there needs to be more intervention to run in on EndeavourOS.
From my understanding, adding the lines to /etc/environment causes all users to use the selected Kvantum theme. Am I right? If so, does this mean that all users will have to use the same Kvantum theme or will each user be allowed to use their own kvantum theme?
simply indicates that you’re going to use kvantum for the styling of qt applications; then each user - but here i’d wait double check - is able to indicate the preferred theme within its own qt5-settings or kvantum-manager…
moreover, just for the “pleasure” of gaining some insights on the maze of environment and shell variables, I’d always found interesting the graphs presented in this article.
The env command shows what your environment settings currently are - and the “|grep QT” part restricts the output to lines containing QT .
Having the entries in /etc/environment, AFAIK, will set these options for all users - and putting them into a file (which you create if not present) named ~/.profile sets them only for the user you logged in as. The lines would look like:
in that case. You choice - like everything else in EndeavourOS (or Linux, for that matter).
That’s my understanding as well (maybe wrongly worded in my previous post), but then, afaik, each user is able to set its own theme within the chosen framework - kvantum in this case - as that entry should be saved by the respective theme manager within the user home. I don’t actually have (yet) a working machine to try it and report, but if I remember correctly, when I tried in “the other distro” months ago, it was like that
