The version of libadwaita provided by this package will use the dconf-variable 'org.gnome.desktop.interface.gtk-theme' to load the theme. This is the same variable that other gtk4-apps (and gnome-tweaks) uses.

For this to work, your theme needs to support gtk4. There may also be some weird formatting until themes are updated to fully support the new widgets; The Arc-family of themes seems to already support most of libadwaita.

Since this replaces the system library, it will only work for apps that actually use it (that is, all apps in the main repo). You will still have to set GTK_THEME if you want to use Flatpaks / Snaps / Appimages
