Description Jeremy 2023-02-02 15:03:37 UTC
Clicking Apply on Automatic (Breeze (dark)) seems to improve things, but there is not a way to go back to a light theme as far as I know without changing the entire system.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Libreoffice
2. Have dark theme active

Actual Results:
Icons are difficult to view, seems to not be able to go back to a light theme individually (switching the system for everything works)

Expected Results:
Problems with viewing apparent light themes in dark system mode.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Sadly a known issue, that libreoffice is not following system dark | light mode setting.

This imo is a duplicate of #152184

Feel free to add your voice to that bug as it has been set to wontfix. It is a somewhat complex issue to tackle since LibreOffice is complex and being cross-platform doesn't make properly following system defaults across the various OSs easier.

Hm maybe not a duplicate after all but similar to #152184. So setting to NEW as this is a valid request.

Which icon theme are you seeing when starting in safe mode?

For me in that is: Automamtic (Sukapura)

We need a different icon them to support dark mode: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153465

And we need support to automatically update icon theme to match system appearance: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=148086
