All GTK4 apps look out of whack as flatpaks when using the
Are you overriding the
GTK_THEME environment variable or setting the theme with some other method?
GTK_THEME=Adwaita-dark. But this happens without overriding anything too. Before I add that override, the apps still look like this, just lighter.
That shouldn’t be the case. If you don’t set
GTK_THEME at all, what does it look like?
Dark style works differently with libadwaita, and you don’t need to override the theme to set it.
Hm, you’re right. If I do
sudo flatpak override --unset-env=GTK_THEME, the problem disappears. It appears I’ve been setting that variable in a setup script I had. The problem is now that all GTK3 apps are light, and the solution you find all over the web says to override the
GTK_THEME environment variable.
Is there a way to set a dark theme for all GTK3 apps, or do we have to do that on a per-application basis?
There is a standard dark preference, file issues in apps to support it. It doesn’t care what toolkit the app is using.
GTK_THEME is a debugging variable, it was never a supported way to make apps dark.
