Manjaro settings broken theme

White text on white background. App is improperly themed as of the last two updates.

When this happened before I used to be able to use Kvantum with KvAdaptaDark and it was great, it would look great, but ever since the release of AdwaitaMaiaCompact it will no longer look like the system theme.

Choose another theme from kvantum manager?

Alternatively use qt5ct instead of kvantum if you want adwaita theming.

I have tried them all. None look like adwaita compact.

Well that’s kind of complicated… How does it work?

If you’re using Adwaiata Maia, don’t use Kvantum at all. Edit /etc/environment and comment out the following line like this:

#QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE="kvantum"

Reboot for changes to take effect.

I’m using adwaita-maia-compact-dark.

Thank you. That did it. It has got the wrong accent color (blue instead of green), but I can live with that.

Yeah, that’s the only caveat. We’re going to see if we can get that part Manjaro-ified as well. :construction_worker_man: :construction:

You can change that with qt5ct.

Put this into a colorscheme file (@bogdancovaciu knows where, I forgot) so you can select it. Then, install qt5ct and activate it like this:

 QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct

Or something like that. @bogdancovaciu knows better and I’m not on my computer right now.

Can be put inside ~/.config/share/qt5ct/colors/adwaita-maia.conf
And once is applied it will still use the adwaita-qt style, but the accents will follow the maia theme.
