I am trying to fix some colors in qt5 applications. I'm using a dark theme and some of the text colors are not bright enough on the dark background.
However, I am very confused about how to achieve this. I have Kvantum Manager and qt5ct installed, but I am not sure which one does exactly what. I was able to switch to a different theme with Kvantum Manager and change the look the qt application, but I couldn't figure out how to change specific font colors.
With the help of this article, I was able to change the text color (in my case by choosing a custom palette, cloning a color scheme and editing the "Less dark" color). But it worked only if I started the qt application with
Unfortunately I couldn't figure out how to make the changes permanent.
export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct to
~/.xinitrc did not work.
(If I change an Icon Theme with qt5ct, the changes are permanent.)
What is the proper way to change the color scheme or theme, and make the changes permanent?
Is there a way to check what theme/color scheme qt5 is loading? Or if
QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct is really applied?
