how to change the size of button in KDE Plasma 5?
For Example, the Configure and Apply button in System settings.

One way is to use the Qt Style Sheets: http://doc.qt.io/qt-5.7/stylesheet.html

Examples:
- http://doc.qt.io/qt-5.7/stylesheet-examples.html
- http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1938 ... ttons-size

System Settings buttons with yellow background, red text, max width 50 px, max height 10 px:

Starting the System Settings with:
Code: Select all
systemsettings5 -stylesheet /path/to/button.qss


button.qss:
Code: Select all
QPushButton {
    background-color: yellow;
    color: red;
    max-width: 50px;
    max-height: 10px;
}

Clever!

A few questions

1. How did you know about this feature of 'systemsettings5'? The command 'systemsettings5 --help' displays no such mention of this feature.

2. How do you get these settings to persist? I tried it myself, and as soon as you close the System Settings window, the changes to the button are lost.

#1

- systemsettings5 is a KDE application but it is also a Qt application.
- earlier: https://www.kubuntuforums.net/showthrea ... post363390
- the KF5 applications are not showing as many help options as the KDE4 did:

Code: Select all
$ dolphin4 --help-all
Usage: dolphin4 [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [options] [Url]

File Manager

Generic options:
  --help                    Show help about options
  --help-qt                 Show Qt specific options
  --help-kde                Show KDE specific options
  --help-all                Show all options
...
Qt options:
...
  --stylesheet <file.qss>   applies the Qt stylesheet to the application widgets
...


Code: Select all
$ dolphin --help
Usage: dolphin [options] +[Url]
File Manager

Options:
  -v, --version              Displays version information.
  -h, --help                 Displays this help.
  --author                   Show author information.
  --license                  Show license information.
  --desktopfile <file name>  The base file name of the desktop entry for this
                             application.
  --select                   The files and directories passed as arguments will
                             be selected.
  --split                    Dolphin will get started with a split view.
  --daemon                   Start Dolphin Daemon (only required for DBus
                             Interface)

Arguments:
  +[Url]                     Document to open

Thanks for that.

However, I think the original person (and myself) are looking for a way to change the size of the button globally using the System Settings, not changing the size of the button in the System Settings application only. Is there a way to use that stylesheet globally for all Qt applications?

If the question is: Is there an option to edit the widget styles from the KDE System settings ?

By my knowledge the only option is KDE system settings > Application Style > Widget Style; Pick the widget style & configure - there are some configurable settings.

There are wishes:
- An easy way to apply Qstylesheets: viewtopic.php?f=90&t=88098
- Bug 164955 - Create a way to use qt style sheets (qss) for theming/styles: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=164955

Qt tools

There is the: Qt5 Configuration Tool - https://www.linux-apps.com/p/1131604/

I would infer that the simple answer is No.
But at leat then can i install kde-style-oxygen4 package in KDE 5?
That way i have 2 widget styles- Oxygen5 and Oxygen 4?
Is this possible?

i do not want to try and messup my system.
thanks,

You can install it, but it will only be used by KDE4 applications.
KF5/Qt5 applications will still continue to use Oxygen5.

In other words, installing kde-style-oxygen4 won't change the look of KF5/Qt5 applications, as they cannot use it.
And it won't add a "new" Oxygen4 style either.

Maybe have a look at the "QtCurve" style, that's very configurable AFAIK.
