My eyes don’t like dark theme. Unfortunately, Gnome-Boxes & Cheese come by default with as dark themed and they don’t offer a configuration option to change it.
I have tried this:
Exec=env GTK_THEME=Adwaita:light gnome-boxes %U
but it has no effect.
Does anyone has a solution/idea about it?
Can you try with
Exec=env GTK_THEME=Adwaita gnome-boxes %U
Edit: I also tried with
Exec=env GTK_THEME=Adwaita:light with
pavucontrol app and both works on my sistem.
Nope! Still comes up dark themed.
The same happens with Cheese, gThumb, etc
Hmmm, weird, i opened a terminal and typed
and the app open with light theme.
Is it possible that it doesn’t read
The only way it works for me is if i use
Exec=bash -c 'GTK_THEME=Adwaita gnome-boxes %U'
But this creates a duplicate app icon. The default open the app in dark theme. The custom opens the app in light theme.
I decided to go with bash alias
alias Boxes="GTK_THEME=Adwaita gnome-boxes" and then i type
Boxes in a terminal window.
--set-value="$(sed -n -r -e \
"s|^Exec=(.*)$|env GTK_THEME=Adwaita \1|p" \

This has a weird effect. The desktop icon still opens Boxes in dark theme but if i type
Super + Boxes + Enter the app opens is light theme.
It looks that it was a caching issue. I ran
sudo update-desktop-database && reboot and now it works fine.
