Some user guide:

My patchset contains multiple fixes/features in comparsion to vanilla qt5ct:

  1. xdg-desktop-portal dialogs support
  2. KDE color schemes support
  3. KDE QML applications theming support
  4. KDE's icon engine is used, fixing monochrome icons colors (I saw problems with e.g. Adapta Kvantum theme on KDE applications toolbars, like dolphin, they're grey when should be white)

xdg-desktop-portal allows you to have KDE dialogs in non-KDE enviornment without installing plasma-integration package. To get them, all you need is:

  1. Install xdg-desktop-portal + xdg-desktop-portal-kde
  2. If you have xdg-desktop-portal-gtk installed, rename usr/share/xdg-desktop-portal/portals/gtk.portal to zz-gtk.portal (backend priority is in alphabetical order). You can add that file to NoExtract in pacman.conf.
  3. Ensure that session dbus instance is running correctly.

How to ensure that session dbus instance is running correctly when using xinit (DMs should already do the right thing for you):

  1. Ensure you don't have dbus-launch nor dbus-session-run in .xinitrc
  2. Ensure you copied the for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/?*.sh loop from /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc to your .xinitrc
  3. Ensure you have no errors in systemctl --user status dbus and the service is running. You shouldn't enable the service, it should be activated by dbus.socket.

In case of Wayland, you may need to integrate your WM with systemd (that's what one of the scripts in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d does for X11): https://github.com/swaywm/sway/wiki#gtk-applications-take-20-seconds-to-start

this package is awesome! I have been exporting KDE as my DE in sway but it was messing with a few things, and vanilla qt5ct couldn't match my regular setup; really glad I stumbled upon this

This should provide and conflict with qt5ct.
