OK, I don’t have nearly as many as you installed and I have no problem. However, I did find one package I have that you don’t: manjaro-icons, so try installing that:

pamac install manjaro-icons

…and performing a reboot.

If it doesn’t work:

:man_shrugging:

Hope it helps!

This does not work… where is the problem? (thanks about your help)

I repeat:

And:

:+1:

Edit:

Perhaps this helps:

Did you mean sudo pacman -Syu?

Did you reboot after performing the update, or did you just continue using your computer after updating?

yes. The problem continues after rebooting and after deleting .config and .local in user home. I am going to reinstall…

This works for me!!! Thanks a lot, I avoid to reinstall

I copy the working solution here:

Install qt5ct and qt5-style-plugins. This will install Qt config tool.
Insert line QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct in your .profile file in your home folder. This will tell Qt apps you run to respect the theme specified in the config tool. Log out and log in again.
Run qt5ct and change the theme settings to GTK. This should make your Qt apps respect your system’s GTK theme.

I’m glad it’s solved. Cheers.

I guess you meant to respond to, and mark as solution, the post that actualy contained those environment variables from @Mirdarthos … so I changed the solution accordingly.

PS. Yes … this is … simply how qt5ct should be used.
