A picture is worth a thousand words as they say so have a screenshot instead of words:
pamac is gtk4 (and libadwaita)
Use a theme that works on that …
pamac-gtk3 which will work with regular old gtk3 themes.
Lets see your packages…
pacman -Qs adw
Oh and maybe check gtk4:
Alright, typed it exactly as you wrote, here’s the output from a fresh terminal:
GNOME standard cursors
GNOME standard icons
Building blocks for modern adaptive GNOME applications
I’ll point out this is an XFCE minimal install, I did install some KDE apps a while back when I first installed the system to see if anything would break but at the time I did they did not effect the package manager in any way. This occurred after a recent update, I forget which but at the time it 1st occured I just assumed it was a typo somewhere in the package manager that would be fixed in an upcoming update, been a couple of updates since and still facing this issue.
Looks like you dont have any adwaita theme actually installed.
LibAdwaita Theme for all GTK3 and GTK4 Apps
The theme from libadwaita ported to GTK-3
Yup. Which managed to become GTK3 a few years ago. But dont expect it to follow Gnome quickly … whereas the new pamac has done just that.
As already mentioned … a while back
pamac became gtk4 and the original was moved to
never mind the adwaita issue, no such config file, or even folder for that matter
I didnt really think there would be … because you are on XFCE … which has no way to manage gtk4.
But you might be able to make some configuration adjustments in regards to gtk4 by manually using that directory/file.
Example from mine:
gtk-font-name=Noto Sans, 10
…or … you know … stick to gtk3 apps, like
I’m trying the settings method, as for the
pamac-gtk3, it was manjaro that installed it, I did not explicitly install the package manager, I used it as is when it was installed with the system and trusted the config for XFCE to be pre-set to whatever was needed for the package manager to follow the theme, I now see that was a mistake.
Edit: Is it safe to delete any of the settings before trying it? The ones I’m thinking of deleting are:
Welp the settings thing didn’t work out, gonna see if I can get that gtk3 one installed instead
Edit: Yep, installing the gtk3 one worked, my eyes sincerely thank you
An alternative solution to use with the gtk4 version
