Hi there, i was wondering how/if i am able to apply the dark system theme.
I configured Gnome to enforce the dark default theme but when i choose “system theme” in Shotcut,
it still uses the bright one (isn’t this even GTK2?).
I wonder about this in the first place because fonts are partly bad rendered on GTK when using the default themes - my main issue here is that disabled menus have a sort of double-shadow or something, it looks just bad.
We use QT as our GUI toolkit. This strange “shadow” text effect has always bothered me, too. I looked into it once. Something is not working correctly in the QT library. I couldn’t find a way to fix it. So I keep hoping that the next QT release will magically fix it.
Well one hope was as it can uses the “system” theme too which renders just fine, that we could use a different “system” theme such as the adwaita dark theme or how it’s called … but it’s gtk2 right?
Maybe some config can be changed to adjust the colorset?
I am able to change the text/icon behavior with lxapperance but it stay’s bright no matter which theme is selected.
