as the title says I have noticed from the qt5 settings app that the theme is not the same as when I first installed this OS. Right now the themes that are showing up are: Adwaita, Adwaita-Dark, AdwaitaHighContrast, AdwaitaHighContrastInverse, HighContrast, HighContrastInverse, kvantum, kvantum-dark, windows and fusion. I recently removed some packages that were flagged as orphans, and I don't know if one of them is the one responsible of the default look of qt5 apps. Can someone tell me what theme was the default and/or from which package I can get if from? Thanks a ton in advance

You might be missing kvantum-theme-sweet-git ?


Thank you for the fast reply! That was it! I thought I had to install a theme for the qt5 settings and not a theme for kvantum, so that caught me off guard. A+ assistance as always
