problems with wayland and qt apps 

i started using Wayland on my setup today. had to install "qt5-wayland" for OBS to work under it, which started causing problems

1 - title bar of qt apps don't follow the system theme
2 - the cursor is way bigger than it should be when it hovers over a qt app

the only fix i've found is to remove qt5-wayland, but that's a no go

should i go back to x11? or is there any solution? (i've tried to install qgnomeplatform, but it applies the adwaita theme to the title bar rather than using the system theme and doesn't fix the cursor size)

i feel like going back to x11 benefits me in some aspects:
- not having this problem
- not having to use discord on the web browser, because it fucking sucks to share the screen using the browser because it barely works lol

@idkwuu GTK uses css theme, Qt Widget uses qtstylesheet and qml uses qml components for theming. So any Gnome theme needs to be ported to Qt. Problem 2 I guess is due to some device pixel ratio env don't get set by gnome. And screencasting on wayland isn't well-supported now anyway. You can try KDE wayland for a better Qt applications experience.

@Hanuwu hmm I don't really like KDE that much, so I guess that my best option would be to go back to X11. thanks for the response! ^-^
