i get two errors when trying to run it. one is something along the lines of “please remove the QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE environment variable” and the other has to do with QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME. i found a fix for the first here and a fix for the second here.

when it was just the first error, i would run unset QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE and then qt5ct in the same terminal and it would run (but would still not run from clicking the icon in the menu). when the second started showing up, i added both fixes to my ~/.bashrc file. these are the lines i added:
Quote:
export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct
unset QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE
in settings there is an advanced tab or section listed at the top. in there is section titled environment variables. inside there is a variable set for QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE. because i was creating a new installation, i tried deleting that variable. that may make the second line i added to .bashrc unnecessary, but i wanted to keep it in case i needed to add the variable back if it affected my system adversely.

since that particular install is still just about a week old, i am still assessing whether or not removing that variable has created any problems. i haven't noticed anything that feels like it would be related, but i don't know exactly what it does (maybe one of the devs can answer that?) so i would recommend keeping an eye on your system for a while if you decide to go that route.

after you add the lines to .bashrc, you need to run the command
Code:
. ~/.bashrc
for your system to reload the settings.

sorry... not sure I understood this... you want me to delete or something to settings/advanced/environment-variables

since the thread is marked as solved and this seems almost specifically about getting qt5ct to run, it might be better to start another thread. that being said, what error are you getting (would be a good place to start in another thread )?
