Dark Theme in Ubuntu

Post by dfriasb » Fri Mar 08, 2019 3:41 pm

Dear all,

I just installed QCAD 3.22.0 in an Ubuntu 18.04 machine an it's not looking as nice as before, in my opinion. Some check boxes are also not visible, as you can see in the screenshot attached here. Default theme is looking fine like before.

Thanks! David.

This needs a lot more work or possibly a separate theme under Linux and is currently optimized for macOS / Windows:

For what it's worth, I recently inline-upgraded my Xubuntu 16.04 desktop to 18.04.2. I'm running the Greybird desktop theme and the Xfce 4.6 Default window manager theme, along with the QCAD dark theme. So far, so good as far as QCAD (3.21.3.0) is concerned:

QCAD is build on QT, which IME seems to be more resilient to environment changes than GTK. I've had to select my desktop theme carefully, since GTK3 (ick) no longer plays nicely with many older GTK apps and there can be huge UI artifacts with many older themes.

Thanks lphilpot. My problems with dark theme started on 3.22 QCAD Pro version. Version 3.21 was looking good on my Ubuntu 18.04 machine. Did you try last version of QCAD? Dark theme was modified on it: https://qcad.org/en/changelog

No I've not tried that version. My pro upgrade entitlement expired in December and I've not upgraded since. However now that you mention it, I think I tried a newer snapshot late last year with the same results you're getting. So I went back to my version.
