Last commit: [6175c22b] darkMode@linuxedo.com: create da.po (#4512)

Easily switch between dark mode and light mode with one click.



Dark Mode

Changing themes to switch between light mode and dark mode doesn't have to be a tedious task. Once you have configured the applet with your default light mode and dark mode themes & wallpaper, you can switch between the modes with a single click.

Works very nicely, thanks! Only thing I'd change is that clicking the applet should instantly change the theme, without opening a menu with just 1 option.

Please also toggle the libadwaita theme. With gnome migrating to libadwaita, half of the applications don't change their theme

The auto change doesn't switch theme on resume. If you enter hibernation say on the dark theme and resume after the time for the light theme to be used, the applet doesn't switch.

In order to get working, you need to make the folder ~/.local/share/icons, which was missing from a fresh install of Mint. Found by DonLH.
