[Fixed] GnuCashPortable where to place settings for GTK 3.0

Hello Gurus,

I am trying to set a dark theme for GnuCashPortable. Acccording to https://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/GTK3#Dark_Themes, I could place the following:

[Settings]
gtk-application-prefer-dark-theme=true

in a settings.ini file in GTK_CONFIG_HOME.

I have tried putting the settings.ini file in Data/GTKDataHome, App/DefaultData/GTKDataHome but to no avail.

The only way that the dark theme could work is by editing the settings.ini file which already existed at App\Gnucash\etc\gtk-3.0\. But I am afraid that subsequent updates would erase away the dark theme setting.

I would prefer to put the file in a user area so that the next update would not remove the modification.

Much appreciate any advice where I should put the settings.ini file to set the dark theme for the app.

Thank you very much for your time.

Hwai An

Not Set

Currently, GnuCash Portable does not set either GTK_CONFIG_HOME or $XDG_CONFIG_HOME.
According to the GnuCash wiki, the default location for that file is in %LOCALAPPDATA%\gtk-3.0.

Fixed in GnuCash Portable 3.5-1

As of the current release, both new and upgraded users will have default files within GnuCashPortable\Data\GTKDataHome that can be edited. GTK_CONFIG_HOME env var is set to this location which should work.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
