[Solved] Dolphin looks bad in Xfce

Is it possible to make Dolphin look the same as it looks in Plasma KDE?

I have Plasma KDE installed and when I switch to Plasma it looks normal. In Xfce it doesn't display Plasma KDE theme breeze-dark properly.
Here is Xfce view:

Re: [Solved] Dolphin looks bad in Xfce

thats normal, since your are not on kde, the kde platform plugin isnt loaded so all qt apps will fallback to the qt fusion theme however since it is a kde app it still tries to to force the kde colorscheme which leads to this weird looking app.

there are 2ways to handle this:

#1. the best way to hande that is to install qt5ct: https://sourceforge.net/projects/qt5ct/ and to select the breeze theme there(you will need to port the kde colorscheme to a qt5ct colorscheme but that should be easy)

#2. force QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME, QT_PLATFORMTHEME and  QT_PLATFORM_PLUGIN to their KDE equivalents.

That helped. Thank you.

This topic was also helpful:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=214147&p=3

If necessary qt5-styleplugins or qt5-styleplugins-git in Ubuntu is called qt5-style-plugins

sudo apt-get install qt5ct & qt5-style-plugins

What is important I created .bash_profile file with

export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct

And relogged for the changes to take effect.

Now Xfce has Breeze dark look
