[SOLVED] Cant Change LXQT Theme from Default Dark

Installed LXQT from artix-lxqt-openrc-20210101-x86_64.iso.  I go into LXQt Appearance Configuration, change QT Style to anything (cleanlooks), also press the Default Palette button, Apply.  Theme doesnt change, remains Dark.

To test, I ran straight from the USB ISO, and problem exists there also.

I have seen this discussed elsewhere, in regards to KDE.  Post made mention of commenting out any QT_lines in /etc/ennvironment.  Only QT_ line in my file is:

Code: [Select]

Which I commented out, still no theme changing.

Any ideas on what to try?

Never mind, after following the troubleshooting guide in the ISO, I found that QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2 alsol needs to be commented out in <home>/.config/lxqt/session.conf  as well as /etc/xdg/lxqt/session.conf.  After commenting these out and restarting LXQT, I can make some appearance changes.
