Color-scheme location for Mousepad 0.6

According to Mousepad documentation, the way theming works now is different. I can't find configuration file, any ideas?

Re: Color-scheme location for Mousepad 0.6

Hello and welcome.

Can you be a little more specific about what you are referring to and which documentation?

- Colour scheme files should now go into: ~/.local/share/gtksourceview-4/styles/
- CSS style is ".mousepad" and overrides should go into ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

Exactly which configuration file are you referring to?

All programs from Flatpak never respect theming. It's the way Flatpak is.


I am horrible at using the terminal as I could never learn the command line.

Re: Color-scheme location for Mousepad 0.6

If you use the flatpak version, you have to look for config, data, etc. folders under ~/.var/app/org.xfce.mousepad/
Flatpak apps are confined so they don't share these folders.

So for the folders given by ToZ above, that would give (not tested):
~/.var/app/org.xfce.mousepad/data/gtksourceview-4/styles/
~/.var/app/org.xfce.mousepad/config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css

~/.var/app/org.xfce.mousepad/data/gtksourceview-4/styles/ is worked for me.
