NeoChat, KDE's native Matrix chat client, is out and comes with a new login page that detects the server configuration from your ID, stickers, message editing, and much more. Check out all that's new at https://carlschwan.eu/2021/02/23/neochat-1.1/
@kde This is almost certainly an issue on my end, having just version-bumped the ebuild locally to give this a go for the first time, but I guess I'm missing a font (?) dependency and the hamburger menu/back icons are just... not icons. That or I've just happened to hit the perfectly wrong colours (it's just Breeze Dark).
I'll play with it as best I can, here, either way, and thanks for everything! ❤️
@carl @kde Yeah, and my system was using the matching Breeze Dark icon set as part of the entire theme package.
(on Gentoo it's kde-frameworks/breeze-icons, which I had, and other KDE Plasma stuff works fine)
I just tried firing up neochat from Konsole to grab its output and saw as the first line:
Icon theme "oxygen" not found.
So I emerged kde-frameworks/oxygen-icons, relaunched, that error disappeared and NeoChat loads with said Oxygen icons.
@carl @kde Yup - just having the 'wrong' icons is not a big deal and I'm 100% prepared to blame my Frankenstein's monster of a system here. A fresh format + starting over would probably fix this, who knows, but I can totally live with it.
Just thought it was interesting behaviour. :) Thanks again and have a wonderful day!
@carl Not sure if you're potentially morbidly interested, here, but I figured out what the heck was wrong with my environment.
Blame qt5ct, basically. That was getting pulled into /etc/profile ('QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME') and a very very old config there was calling for Oxygen.
...and it was causing me all sorts of grief with other KDE Plasma things, so now that *that*'s gone, things work a lot more as expected. ;)
So yeah, silly per-system thing, but if you ever hear it come up..
