I like darker themes too - much easier on my eyes. Hence my eyes bleed
[not really] when I look at Windows 10.
If somebody was to complete the LCL-fpGUI widgetset (so you can actually
compile the IDE with LCL-fpGUI), then you could simply use the dark
themes included with fpGUI and your solution is done. ;-) fpGUI
applications can apply application specific themes and not depend on
desktop environments. They can be switched at runtime too.
For examples of those dark fpGUI themes, see the Carbon or Plastic Dark
themes shown here:
I would imagine that the LCL-Qt interface could do the same, as that
shouldn't depend on a desktop environment. Or does it?
