Manjaro-settings-manager has light theme instead of dark

on XFCE: I use Matcha-dark-sea but manjaro-settings-manager has light theme instead of dark


After recent update, system is not applying configuration settings in ~/.profile including: export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME="qt5ct" for QT theme

If there is no response to this command


Forum users have posted 3 different ways to resolve this:

  1. Copy configuration in ~/.profile to ~/.bash_profile


  1. Configure ~/.bash_profile to read ~/.profile

    tee -a ~/.bash_profile <<< "[[ -f ~/.profile ]] && . ~/.profile"


  1. create a symlink for ~/.profile to ~/.xprofile

    cd $HOME; ln -s .profile .xprofile

It seems my /.profile is not being used anymore

I use ZShell

cd $HOME; ln -s .profile .xprofile

didn`t solve my issue here

Also this does not:

$ GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/Matcha-dark-sea/gtk-2.0/gtkrc manjaro-settings-manager

well it is qt app, so it only makes sense

QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct manjaro-settings-manager

as already mentioned above.

yep, but it is still light instead of dark so its not sourcing the kvantum theme or xfce4 one.

$ sudo pacman -S kvantum-qt5

solved it but highlight color is blue instead of green

Seems like unannounced change in the kvantum system und packaging in the unstable branch, hopefully we will get more info when it hits stable.

solved all issues now, I removed xfce-panel-workaround from startup items was a bad idea.

kvantum-qt5 is a new package to support QT5 themes, split from kvantum 1.0.10-3 that supports QT6 only

upgpkg: 1.0.10-3: Build tools with Qt6, split Qt5 style to a separate package (a624b468) · Commits · Arch Linux / Packaging / Packages / kvantum · GitLab


I need it for audacious until it is rebuild up on qt6.
