Why are some applications the style of whatsapp

Hi guys.
I've installed the Whatsapp for Linux App from Octopi and I deinstalled it because it's to slow for me, but now some applications are in the style as Whatsapp (green background, ...)
Applications like YAD Settings and Pomodoro
Can someone help me

Please provide your garuda-inxi, as requested by the topic template.
Additionally, provide more details on what exactly you installed (I think there are several packages for whatsapp?) and how/what you unistalled.
The best thing would be to always install and remove packages using pacman.
Remember that you can always restore the latest working snapshot, if necessary, and start new.


I removed the application using Octopim how can I remove it via pacman ?

Again, post the garuda-inxi output, please.

pacman -Qi <package name>

Maybe pacman know nothing about.



If you come from a non-Arch linux distro:

To the second point. That's the problem. I've installed it for a couple of days and then all my data from that days gets lost and because I'm new to garuda. I've done a lot of customization work in this days.

Try to re-apply the Dr460nized global theme and check the other themes mentioned here in a colored box:
Other settings can be reset to default using Garuda Assistant
By-the-way, restoring snapshots doesn't touch anything inside home directory, including most, probably all, your configurations.


Re-apply does not work. Once the system prompted me to delete the old snapshots after update. I've done it, so I cannot restore. Is it possible to reset the complete system or something like that, without losing my files ?

Have you tried also:
Global Theme = Dr460nized
Application Style = kvantum-dark
Plasma Style = Dr460nized
Colors = Sweet
Window Decorations = Sweet-Dark
Additionally, Settings->Appearance->Configure GNOME/GTK Application Style (at the bottom) and select GTK theme: Sweet dark
Something still tells me that it is a theming issue to be solved with kvantum-manager or GTK theme, but there are a lot of possibilities with kvantum-manager and you are the only one who can play wit it.

I thnk they are both GTK applications in-fact.

The easiest way to “reset” would be creating a new user (which should get the standard theme), but then you’ll have to copy configuration files from the home of the old to the one of the new user (pay attention to the ownership). But this should be done very carefully, because at a certain point, you could copy also the configuration file which is creating this prolem.


Thanks for your replay, but the select GTK Style hasn't changed anything, never. It has never changed something. Yeah I've tried all this. I will give me 2 hours today to play with kvantum and the rest. Thanks

Guys. Don't have any issues anymore. Just created a new user. Switched back to my user and the problem was solved. I think there could be a bug or somthing
Thanks to all who wanted to help me. Great Community
