PyQt via Pip that respects user theme

  • I have written a app using PyQt, however when installing the requirements via Pip, it often disregards the users theme, I'm using a KDE theming tool called kvantum and my app looks great so long as I use apt to get the OS's pyqt plugin, if I install through Pip all my PyQt apps look wrong.

    This is more of an issue as I'm looking to package my app using AppImage and Snappy, and the packaging with Pip seems to be an issue.

    Are there strong opinions about where to install pyqt from - Os repos vs pip?

    If you want to ensure integration with your distribution then you should use the version provided by your distribution.

    In your case, you might want to build the plugin yourself but I don't know which one it is.
