I'm having trouble trying to actually start the application. I have cloned the repository and compiled it from source using this guide; which is the simplest to follow for linux noobs like me. But after the installation and reboot, I can't see Kvantum anywhere. It's not in the Qt Style options and searching it from the menu gives nothing. What have I done wrong?

  • These packages are not available for Ubuntu 18.10, but they are available for future Ubuntu 19.04. – N0rbert Jan 26 at 16:37
  • Oh thats a shame. Is there any alternative to let me change the Qt Widget style? – Zenurik Jan 26 at 22:41

As you have compiled and installed Kvantum, then you can:

  • use Kvantum Manager km (kvantummanager aka /usr/local/bin/kvantummanager):

    Kvantum Manager GUI

  • specify theme for single application like

    QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=kvantum kate

    or make this permanent

    echo "export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=kvantum" >> ~/.profile
  • follow official Theme-Config.pdf guide to set up the theme.
