A newbie question.
I run EndeavourOS with an XFCE desktop environment.
Everything is working smooth and gorgeous. But I have two apps where I have problems with a dark theme (I use Ark-Dark). These apps aren’t dark:
I am sure these apps can be displayed in a dark mode, as I used them in dark mode before on Mint. But this is not an easy question to figure out without help. I tried but couldn’t find an appropriate article or discussion to solve this question.
Can you help me to make these apps dark? Without changing my desktop environment, I am happy with XFCE, only these 2 apps I prefer to have in dark.
Thank you in advance!
These are both QT5 apps, therefore you’ll need to configure their looks via
qt5ct (from the package of the same name).
Thanks! Can you please elaborate a little? I have never done this before and I am little afraid of doing something in a wrong way.
- Install qt5ct
- Run qt5ct and there will be a dark theme?
So, the Ark-Dark theme you are using is a GTK theme using GTK toolkit.
But the apps you are using are based on Qt toolkit.
So you need to get the Qt theme according to the method mentioned by @ajgringo619 to get the dark theme for your Qt apps.
I hope this helps.
Please refer to the following article in EnOS Wiki:
Oh, thanks! For my shame I read this article, but decided it is not for my case. Sorry.
Hope you get it resolved with the help of the wiki article.
Yes, it solves my question. Even easier than in article (without creating a directory).
qt5ct and choose kvantum theme
- Relaunch qt5 applications
