The descripion says "Lightweight Qt5 plain text editor for Linux" but it is compiled against qt6.

Neither LXQt nor KDE Plasma uses qt6 so all appearance settings are ignored.

You'll have to remove / replace all qt6 dependecies, remove '-DENABLE_QT5=OFF' from PKGBUILD and set pkgrel to 3 to get a qt5 compatible featherpad


install / configure appearance using qt6ct and start featherpad with '--platformtheme qt6ct'.

@3xploiton3, no need for that. The featherpad-git here has the latest version.

If u wanna install very up to date version,

Follow this instruction

Download snapshot or extract the archive open a terminal inside it and enter makepkg. After the package is made, install it with sudo pacman -U *.pkg.tar.xz.

With Manjaro/Arch+AUR, you could always have the latest git version. Just do the above once in a while.

Had some problems with #include <hunspell/hunspell.h> which were solved adding hunspell to 'depends', but maybe it could be instead in makedepnds+optdepends (in both) too...
