Dark mode
« on: May 06, 2019, 05:16:04 am »
Dark mode on v4.1.6 looks like something from Windows 3.1  :o Is there a toggle to switch it off?

You can force light mode for qBittorrent:

Code: [Select]
defaults write org.qbittorrent.qBittorrent NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool yes

Yes it's kinda "scary" to say the least... why was it enabled by default? I've disabled it, sorry...  8)

See also the recent comments on https://github.com/qbittorrent/qBittorrent/issues/9096 for a download of qBittorrent 4.1.6 with working dark mode support (uses Qt 5.12, which was not used in the official release as it wouldn't work on older macOS versions).
