If you want to use tkPacman with Konsole as virtual terminal, you will have to change the tkPacman option "terminal" from
konsole -nofork -p tabtitle=%t -e %c
to
konsole --title %t -e %c
If I have to update tkPacman for some reason, I will also correct the command template for Konsole.

@herremaw: Oh, I see, it's specifically with Breeze Dark, not with Breeze Light.

EDIT: It happens with the other Dark themes too. For now I'm using Krita Blender, since it's a decent middle-ground that doesn't have much negative impact on tkpacman.

@YAOMTC: I cannot reproduce your issue with respect to the strange mix of colour schemes. I neither see it on the XFCE desktop that I am using most, nor on the Plasma desktop. For completeness, I have to add that I am just using the default colour scheme of Plasma, the one that is chosen by default after installation on Arch Linux. Did you perhaps choose a different colour scheme on Plasma? If that is the case, can you tell me which one? Best regards, Wim Herremans

tkpacman has a strange mix of color schemes for me. White on dark gray in the 'browser' and 'tmpdir' selections and in the pacman.log viewer, black on white in 'terminal', 'runasroot' and the search fields, white on light gray in 'fontincrement', light gray on white in the info box, white on white in the "help" box... White on dark gray in the search box there... Has anyone else had this issue? I'm using it in the Plasma desktop if that makes any difference.

@YAOMTC:
I have a Plasma installation now and I can confirm the issue.
I have found the cause of the problem too. It is the "-p tabtitle=%t" in the tkPacman option "terminal".
In the tkpacman option "terminal" just replace
konsole -nofork -p tabtitle=%t -e %c
with
konsole --title %t -e %c
The "-nofork" option was not offending, but does not seem necessary anymore, so you can leave that out also.

Thanks, qterminal lacks the issue. It must be something with Konsole specifically, or between tkPacman and Plasma/Konsole.

@YAOMTC: I don't know what causes the problem. At the moment I don't have a Plasma installation at hand. Personally, I am using xfce4-terminal on Xfce. That works without problems. I will look into Plasma and Konsole, but that may take some time because I have to install Plasma. Meanwhile you could try to use qterminal instead of konsole. That works alright on my Xfce installation.

I've noticed that at some point recently, when I hit Enter to close the terminal (on Plasma/KWin), DrKonqi thinks that Konsole ended unexpectedly, and at this point tkPacman freezes up temporarily. Is this more likely an issue with tkPacman or with Plasma?

Minor upgrade of tkpacman to version 1.9.1. The filter in the file selection box called from "Install package from local file" has been modified from ".pkg.tar.xz" to ".pkg.tar.*". As a result, both packages with file extensions ".pkg.tar.xz" and ".pkg.tar.zst" are shown in the file selection box.

Problem solved with latest versions of TCL and TK. Took some time....
