LXQt themes

LXQt themes are qss stylesheets. They are either located in /usr/share/lxqt/themes/ or ~/.local/share/lxqt/themes. User themes are currently not supported. So far the following themes are available:

  • Ambiance
  • Dark
  • Frost
  • Kde-plasma
  • Light

Some discussions about themes can be followed here.

If anybody is interested in how the environment would look without a custom theme, create the following files (if <prefix> is /usr):

    mkdir /usr/share/lxqt/themes/notheme
    touch /usr/share/lxqt/themes/notheme/lxqt-panel.qss

Then choose the Notheme in lxqt-config-appearance.


For theming Qt you need to create Qt widget themes. So far the following are available:

  • Breeze
  • Oxygen
  • QtCurve
  • GTK+
  • Windows
  • Fusion

You can install Qt widget themes using your package manager.

Theming the environment

For some infos about how to create a nice looking environment take a look at this Manjaro Wiki entry.

Icons and Artwork

You can find the LXQt Logo done by Caig in his repo.

Community created themes

If you create a theme and put it on GitHub it is recommended to tag it so GitHub creates a release for it once you are finished. Like this users can see what changes you did in a later version and the chances of your theme being added to a distribution are higher.
