Xfce4 doesn't change appearance

I installed plasma 5 on arch alongside MATE, GNOME, and XFCE but, ever since I changed the default gtk theme for plasma 5 to Orion, i cannot change it back to any other in xfce, but it works fine in GNOME, i haven't tried it in MATE. Any Ideas? thanks

Re: Xfce4 doesn't change appearance

I've never used plasma, but a stab in the dark here. Does the plasma/kde configuration module make changes to either ~/.gtkrc-2.0, ~/.config/gtk-2.0/gtkrc or ~/.config/gtk-3.0/* files? If so, they would be overriding the settings chosen in Xfce's appearance module.

Yes, it does. How do I fix that?

Either rename those files (if you want to save them for future use) or delete them. Then log in and out again for it to take effect.

and this is only happening in xfce

Its a known bug. Which distro are you using? Can you use the xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin or something like pnmixer instead?

Yes! It worked for me too! After messing with KDE I could change themes in XFCE anymore...
