How to enable dark mode on Linux   03 October 2023, 13:12

Hello,
In v8.1.7 for Linux it appears that the dark mode checkbox under the view tab is disabled (greyed out). Is there something I'm overlooking?
My operating system: Kubuntu 22.04

Thanks,
Steve

The dark mode checkbox is enabled only in the Windows version of Network Scanner.

On Linux it will use the current GTK theme. You can simply go to Settings - Application Style - Gnome Application Style (GTK) - Get new themes and install any dark theme that you like. Then restart Network Scanner and it should pick up that theme:
