But changing system theme to dark does NOT switch to dark theme in shotcut.
OS: LinuxMint 21.1
I really miss the dark theme and i wish that i can choose themes as before (white and dark). Because i don’t like to switch my whole system to dark only for some applications.
So i think the same as here: https://forum.shotcut.org/t/shotcut-display-theme-is-gone/38742/3
Sorry, but It is a bug.
It would be cool to choose between “light”, “dark”, “auto”.
Version is wrong. Should be 23.05.07
Qt 6 Quick Controls not using an app’s custom palette is probably a bug in Qt. Is Linux userspace fragmentation a bug? But removing a feature or menu item is not really a bug. You can use an older version that still has it. We moved to Qt 6 to fix some major bugs and compatibility issues. A big change often comes with sacrifices. After pouring immense amounts of energy into something and then realizing there are some minor drawbacks, what should one do? Quitting is one option. Moving forward and sacrifice is another.
The portable, AppImage, and Snap are all the same build. But the AppImage and Snap do not read desktop color theme while portable does (depending on your desktop environment software, its version, dependencies, and configuration). Go figure.
Yes, I fill the same as in my mind its a bug.
Also advise to change display in OS doesnt apply to my Linux, as I have it done this way long before I installed Shotcut. Now only the Shotcut stands out with its bright white aperance.
I also mentioned that Polish language somehow changed to more English then Polish after last update.
So 3/4 menu in Shotcut is now in English, while Polish is sellected from Language Pane and restarted.
Anyway, looks like previous version suit my needs better then current. Only, I dont know how to move back the clock …
I’m using the flatpak on Linux Mint (up to date) both as well as the normal system package. The system package has dark mode. I’d love to try the tracking feature, but currently the flatpak is burning out both my occuli, so that’ll have to wait a bit. ^^
Changing the desktop theme to Dark does not work for me in Linux Mint 21.1. @dimadjdocent any tips on making the Dark work? I’ve read the attached and installed a flatpack SC over the App ver, but I still have eyeball-searing white.
If anyone has success, PLEASE let us know.Thank you!
Unfortunately, I don’t know how to solve your problem. I have a shotcut responsive to the system theme. Perhaps it depends on the theme of the environment, I have XFCE “rat”.
I can’t say for certain, but maybe upgrading to xfce 4.18 helped (linux mint 21.1 comes with version 4.16 by default). I updated by additionally including the xubuntu repository.
This update made me wonder If I choose the system theme, I see colored icons. Is this by design, or is it some kind of bug?
This will of course be purely my subjective opinion, but the discolored flat style of the icons looks much more modern than these colored ones.
