Recently, Pamac GTK replaced Octopi as the graphical package manager on Manjaro KDE, which make this edition more consistent with the others. I recently installed Manjaro KDE on my laptop (replacing my old Manjaro Cinnamon that was 1 year and a half old, RIP) and doing all upgrades with Pamac GTK no matter what (on Testing) to see if it works properly.
So far, it has been fine, even surviving a KDE upgrade from 5.16.X to 5.17. However, there is two visual issues that annoy me quite a bit on the default installation with the default look and make the experience less enjoyable than it could be.
- Is it me or the grey text is barely readable? I can read "41.2 MB/65.8 MB About 40 seconds remaining", but I really have to focus hard on the text to be able to read it.
- By default, the tray icon for Pamac is pitch black. It is kind of awkward considering that the panel is in a dark color. It would be better if the icon was white instead of black, well, like the other icons on the right side.
The problem is that I have no idea if it is a problem from Pamac, KDE, or the Breath theme in itself, or somehow a problem on my side only (although I think it was like that since the beginning).
