I'll write the steps I took in order to solve it, in case someone that is having this issue finds this thread.
- First, I located the file pd-gui.tcl in /usr/lib/puredata/tcl
- Then, I opened the terminal and changed permissions on the file using the command
sudo chmod ugo+rw /usr/lib/puredata/tcl/pd-gui.tclso I could edit it.
- Opened pd-gui.tcl, and right below
option add *PatchWindow*Canvas.background "white" startupFile(line 294) I added:
option add *PatchWindow*Canvas.background "white" userDefault option add *TkFDialog*foreground "black" userDefault option add *TkChooseDir*foreground "black" userDefault option add *PdWindow*foreground "black" userDefault
- Saved the file, close puredata and opened it again.
Now it looks like this:
I recently moved from Windows 10 to Linux Mint, and when I installed puredata, it looked like this by default:
When I change from a dark theme to a light theme, applications like GNU Octave and Mozilla Firefox do change, but it's not the case with puredata. I tried this solution with no luck.
Any ideas on what is causing this issue, and how can I solve it?
