Snap: improve cursor theme #2832

One issue with Qt snaps is the default cursor theme, which is a fallback theme and quite ugly. I propose the following changes to the snapcraft.yaml file to use the system cursor theme when available. Please see the following thread on the snapcraft forum for more background info and limitations of this:

Type of change

  • Bug fix (non-breaking change which fixes an issue)

Description and Context

To use the system cursor theme, the snap needs to connect to the appropriate plug (icon theme plug). In addition, a new stage package is required (qt5 style plugins).
Please see screenshots below for the result.




Testing strategy

Tested on a few different distros. Please see the forum thread above for details.
It works for example with Ubuntu and elementaryOS. Distros that don't support this will keep using the fallback cursor theme, so for them nothing changes, it has only advantages.


  • I have read the CONTRIBUTING document. [REQUIRED]

Given the theming drawbacks on unsupported distros, I do not see the benefit just to correct a mouse cursor. I am going to say NO to this change.

With this change there's no drawback, because the default fusion style is still used. Only forcing the QGTKStyle plugin (which is not done here) creates issues when the GTK2 settings are not exposed by the theme and or DE.

So this has only the benefit of using a correct mouse theme when available, if not, nothing changes. Since most users are on Ubuntu, I think this would be a great benefit.
