First off I’m fairly new to kde, having just installed it last week.
I’m using the latest (got the iso from the main site, installed, then updated everything via discover), and used the wiki guide to get plasma working with Wayland on Nvidia
I should also note that just today I reinstalled KDE, wiping my root, but my home was kept (I mounted a different partition to home), just in case that’s a factor
I’m also somewhat familiar with Linux but my last experience with it was over a decade ago, so bear with me.
I haven’t installed a lot of apps yet because I’m just toying around until a bigger SSD arrives, to help me understand modern Linux and work out kinks ahead of committing to it for a daily driver.
I installed catppuccin and the first thing I noticed is Firefox doesn’t use the theme (it’s using dark breeze instead), but all of the other default k apps do. Unsure if this is a Firefox specific issue or something.
I also noticed discord applies the window decorations, but the window theme itself does not match system theme (it’s using the default discord theme). I assume this is some proprietary bs on discords side, given they restrict cosmetics (such as window themes) through nitro.
I then noticed there’s an app in discover called gtk4cord, which I gave a try. It neither confirms to system theme, but after some reading on what exactly gtk is and what version kde comes with (gtk3) this is likely because - and it’s in the name (duh) gtk4cord is for GTK4.
There is an older version of gtkcord for 3 but it’s no longer maintained. Haven’t tried it yet.
This brings me to my next question which is, can I update to GTK4? Would that break anything with plasma apps, or should everything using 3 be forward compatible with 4?
And how exactly might I update to 4 if it’s safe to do so?
