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.

Official themes

Official themes can be found in the lxde/lxqt-themes repository.

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.

Some of them can be found in the category LXQt Themes.


pcsuggest has an article about LXQt themes which also mentions a view other ones.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
