Rofi change to default?

Hey guys, today I updated Rofi to version 1.7.0, and that broke Rofi

More specifically, its theming would reset to its default.
(Sorry, I cannot take a screenshot, because Rofi would close when I switch Focus to another window)

The weird thing is that the config still exists in ~/.config/rofi/config.rasi
Here are it’s contents:

/* Theme EndeavourOS i3
https://raw.githubusercontent.com/endeavouros-team/i3-EndeavourOS/master/.config/rofi>
Maintainer: joekamprad [joekamprad@endeavouros.com]
https://endeavouros.com
*/
configuration {
    color-normal: "argb:00383c4a, #b0b5bd, argb:00383c4a, argb:E6101010, #ff7f7f";
        color-urgent: "argb:00383c4a, #b0b5bd, argb:00383c4a, argb:00383c4a, #24ffef";
        color-active: "argb:00383c4a, #b0b5bd, argb:00383c4a, argb:00383c4a, #24ffef";
        color-window: "argb:E6383c4a, argb:00383c4a, argb:E65294e2";
}

I do not understand why Rofi just reset to its default theme? Can anyone explain why and can anyone propose a solution to this problem?

There’s lots of great minds working on the issue currently.

I use the term great minds loosely for us haha. Hang tight.

for now you can savely downgrade rofi:
sudo downgrade rofi
they remove compatibility with the old way configs working… what will need to rewrite them… or replace…

Fixes rofi configs and rofi structure to have separated theme, what makes you able to change theme without touching configurations.

changed files:

power menu:
~/.config/rofi/powermenu.rasi

~/.config/i3/scripts/powermenu

App menu:
~/.config/rofi/rofidmenu.rasi

Theming:
/.config/rofi/arc_dark_colors.rasi

Panel:
~/.config/i3/i3blocks.conf

Config:
~/.config/i3/config

it was not easy for sure… like learning a new language…

In your config.rasi include your theme using:

@theme "mytheme"
