I've been looking for getting a dark appearance to lxqt, and so far the closest is through qt5ct color schemes specified through *.conf little files under qt5ct, somehow documented here:
Is there a way to get such color scheme files to choose from? Also, is there some specification of what each of the 20 colors specified per active/disabled/inactive ones is supposed to mean? The inactive and active ones are pretty similar, except for the 13th color, not sure if some more should change. The disabled one is of course more different, :) I'm not looking for the inactive colors to be similar to the disabled ones, just a bit more of contrast than what I see, which is no difference on tabs or even buttons...
I can't speak for LXQT specifically. (I'm a XFCE / formerly KDE user.) But I've been maintaining a dark theme for my own personal use for several years now (screenshot at http://www.darose.net/DaroseDesktop2011-09.png) and have started sharing it a bit recently given that there's been increased interest in dark color schemes lately.
The theme is primarily a GTK theme, so not sure how well it will work with LXQT, but I also have a copy of the older KDE/QT version which perhaps might be more likely to work with LXQT. The GTK theme is an AUR package (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/adwaita-dark-darose/), while the KDE/QT theme is just a color scheme file (http://darose.net/DarkBlueGreyDave9.colors) as I haven't spent time making a package out of that one since I don't use KDE anymore.
Hope one of these is useful to you. Feel free to email back feedback / suggestions for improvement.
