Using Xojo on KDE with a dark Theme

Xojo 2022 3.2 on a KDE neon System using the Breeze Dark Theme looks terrible.

Is there a way to launch the Xojo IDE without it using the KDE Theme, but it’s standard colors?

It did that in dark mode for me on GNOME too.
You can override the GTK theme for the IDE by editing the xojo .desktop file in /usr/share/applications .
You need to prepend

env GTK_THEME=Breeze

to the Exec command , so it would look similar to:

Exec=env GTK_THEME=Breeze /opt/xojo/Xojo

Hello @Adam_Charlton :slight_smile:
Tried this already, but it does not change anything here.

Does forcing it to light theme work? I can’t remember exactly what I did and don’t have access to my machine running KDE at the moment. Will have a look when I can tomorrow though. I remember this issue driving me mad though.


Unfortunately that doesn’t help either.

I gave up trying to run the IDE in dark mode on any of my Linux variants. I created a separate user for Xojo development that uses light themes when I develop/debug.

Am not sure Xojo does have any dark theme support on Linux at all ?

Looks like the latest release has Dark Mode support on Linux so may be worth trying with that.
