Dark Mode
#1
For current Mobian, what is the easiest way to change the system profile to a dark mode?  I am finally using my Pinephone as a daily driver, but after over 10 years running Maemo Linux on a N900 which ships with a dark mode system palette I am still shocked every time I open my phone at night and get blasted with light.
I would track this down but I assume such a popular problem has already been solved by many users.

@biketool, nice to meet here an old N900 user. I am using the PP as a dailydriver since one week, ago leaving my old & trusted N900 in the dust...
Regarding your question, have a look here: https://wiki.mobian-project.org/doku.php?id=themes

It is as simple as typing in a terminal the following:
Code:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme 'Adwaita-dark'

It worked on mine (mobian boowkorm upgraded daily)

to get back if you don't like it this works for me.
Code:
gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.interface gtk-theme
The one app I keep burning my night adjusted retinas with is Cozy, the audio-book player, it's dark mode toggle seems not to work....
and now I tried to un-toggle it, kill and restart Cozy and the dark mode works.  I am happy!
I am digging around to find how to list all installed GTK themes so I can play about with them but at least Adwaita-dark doesn't dark mode apps like phone calls or sms, nor the app loading screens.

hmmm, something's strange there - on mine the above theme darked-mode all main apps I'm using (phone, contacts, chat and also Whatsapp firefox page)
