I am new to linux and zathura also. I have installed KDE plasma 2 days ago. Previously I used xodo as pdf reader and its color mode option is quite nice for(less strain in eyes). Now I installed zathura and find the whole pdf reader really nice. I want change the background color. So after searching I need to create a zathurarc file in /.config/zathura/zathurarc. So I did that and created a zathurarc (text) file with code setting there but its not working. After searching for a while I found zathurarc file containing all the settings in usr/share/man/man5/zathurarc.5.gz. I can only read the file and its code, but cannot extract and edit the file. I tried (chmod 744) command but it says I do not have the permission. I just want to have the background color of zathura to #f5dfc9. I have tried the :set default-bg command too but its only changing the side color not the paper color. Help me!
Sorry for bad english and long post.
Edit: Solution… I have found my sepia mode for zathura by typing below command one by one…
set default-bg “#f5dfc9”
set recolor true
set recolor-lightcolor “#f5dfc9”
set recolor-darkcolor “#000000”
I can’t create or edit any zathurarc file in root directory. Though I did create in ~/.config/zathura/zathurarc (with all the settings found in github) but it did not render.
