Describe the bug
When I use the new themes kitten, the kitty program crashes. It does not seem to matter whether I set the theme interactively or directly in the command. When starting kitty again, the theme is correctly set.

(This bug might be related to MacOS, or the fact that this is a M1 machine, but I have no way to verify this).

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Open kitty.app on MacOS
  2. run kitty +kitten themes Nord
  3. Kitty program quits.

Config options different from defaults:

It will be because signal handling of SIGUSR1 is not working on macOS
probably because it needs some special non-POSIX code for it. I will
look into that when I am next on a mac machine.

In the meantime, use --reload-in=none and manually reload the config by
pressing the shortcut for it.

Thank you. What is the shortcut to reload the configuration?

And ^+⌘+f5 on macOS

Hey @kovidgoyal that workaround is working fine, I just wanted to know if there is a way to reload the config in a "non-interactively" way.
Is it possible to send the key combination as input and make kitty execute the correspondent action (kitty @ cmd+control+,? Or can I include the load_config_file in the list of actions, so I can put kitty @ load_config_file in a bash script for example?

You just have to wait for the next release with the fix. IIRC reloading config file is not a remote control action.

@kovidgoyal I have the same issue mentioned here, however I had been reliably using kitty-theme -t -L in conjunction with launching kitty via /usr/local/bin/kitty -o allow_remote_control=socket-only --single-instance --listen-on unix:/tmp/kitty to enable switching between two themes on the fly. I'm now getting that the kitty-theme command is not found and I'm not entirely sure if it is because I had mucked something up or if it is explainable some other way. I was looking around the docs to try to find where I had the command from at all and can't seem to come across it in the docs and changelog to try to find an explanation. Any wisdom on the matter would be much appreciated.

I know this been discussed before but just to add context what I am ultimately looking for is for the theme to be set and change dynamically according to the MacOS system theme, but the workaround I had was treating me well... Thanks for your time :)

Edit:
I can in my kitty.conf that I have the following line include current-theme.conf, as well as specified current-theme.conf, light-theme.conf and dark-theme.conf files. Each of these contain color definitions so I assume the kitty-theme -t -L command would replace the contents of the current-theme file with either the contents of the light/dark theme files accordingly.

I'm thinking that while not explicitly mentioned, it has something to do with the first entry of the changelog here https://sw.kovidgoyal.net/kitty/changelog/#id2

Edit:
It had been so long I didn't realize that I has been using https://github.com/fretboardfreak/kitty-theme-changer/. The reason it broke was because I had mucked up my systems default python installation.
