yes i thinks so, or at least it's "a feature": arronax, right now, don't respect theme settings other than gnome ones.
from AUR perspective, we cannot do much about that.

hi max.bra, on sway/wayland arronax does't respond to theme settings of lxappearance. A work around is to set gtk themes and gtk icon themes for arronax in sway config (/home/user/.config/sway/config) manually adding:

exec always {
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme "Breeze-Dark"
    gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme "Papirus-Dark" 

After that, all icons are shown in arronax on sway/wayland. Don't know if this is a bug?

hi mireiner, despite this is an gnome oriented project you should file a bug upstream.

Missing icons on Sway/Wayland and KDE Plasma/Wayland (icons below menu bar):
Sway/Wayland > arronax 0.8-2 > all icons are missing
KDE Plasma/Wayland 5.23.4 > arronax 0.8-2 > missing quit/exit icon
Gnome 41/Wayland > arronax 0.8-2 > all icons are shown

@yochananmarqos done, thanks a lot for reporting.

Could you update the dependency to python-pyxdg? It doesn't work with the python-xdg AUR package.

@yochananmarqos thanks for the heads up. this package deserves more love.

@max.bra: python-setuptools is only required to build, it's not a runtime dependency.

This now requires libwnck3:
