As a recent LMDE 6 user, I noticed something that never occurred in my previous uses of Linux Mint 20, 21, and LMDE 5.
When I Download something, the pop-up screen appears asking for a location, but the theme of the popup changes and looks like an older version of Windows. I use a Dark theme and the Download screen is Light, a different Font, and Font size.
It’s a little disorienting because it sticks out like a sore thumb.
I’m not sure where to start my trouble-shooting. Any suggestions welcome.
Possible to share a screenshot of the event?
The image below is the normal look that I expect.
Here is what theDownload screen(Upload as well, I just noticed posting these pics) looks like now.
It appears that the Upload/Download screens are outside of the current theme settings.
Ah! Now I understand. It happens for some tools (specially Python ones) the upload or save option window looks extremely dated.
I never paid attention to it. I think it’s because the application uses some libraries that open some other file explorer instead of the one provided by the desktop environment.
So there is nothing I can do to force it into theme compliance?
Unfortunately, nope. As far as I know, the end user cannot do anything here.
Maybe does it use Qt (PyQt?), while the rest of the desktop uses GTK?
Do you have Qt5 setting on the control panel?
Try change on the first tab:
Palette: custom, color scheme “darker”.
Thanks for the advice. I implemented your suggestion(w/o a restart) and it had no effect.
I appreciate the suggestion. I have never opened the Qt5 settings before and I was shocked at all of the things to play with in there.
Thank you for expanding my Linux knowledge.
