At work we are using QGIS 3. When we were using QGIS 2 I enjoyed working with the black theme, called Night Mapping, for healthy eyes, etc. With QGIS 3, when I click on the menu of the themes and pick Night Mapping, nothing happens. Am I the only one ? I want it back.

  • I can not switch to a dark one as well. It just simply does not work. – Taras Feb 14 '19 at 14:51
  • I think they come back in 3.6, source : twitter.com/imhere_asia/status/1094954003933278209 – J. Monticolo Feb 14 '19 at 14:55

    Try choosing the theme, closig Qgis and open again Qgis. That worked for me – Gerardo Jimenez Feb 14 '19 at 17:32
  • @GerardoJimenez It doesn't work for my part. – user107482 Feb 14 '19 at 18:47
  • @Taras I have a suspicion that you're right – user107482 Feb 14 '19 at 18:48

Alternatively, download/install the Load QSS - UI themes plugin. These contain a selection of themes which you can use including some darkened ones:

Tested on QGIS 3.4 for Win7 64-bit. The Night Mapping theme also does not load for me but should be fixed in the next major update.

    the wombat theme is exactly the same that was included in the core later! – Fran Raga Feb 14 '19 at 15:18
  • @FranciscoRaga - I hope they asked for your permission seeing as you are the author of this fun plugin :) – Joseph Feb 14 '19 at 15:19
  • this theme was a Nathan PR to my plugin and later than introduced the idea and this theme in the QGIS core! thanks for your feedback @Joseph – Fran Raga Feb 14 '19 at 15:23

    @FranRaga To be honest, I recently started using qGIS, and I just put dark theme to my computer, works well in almost everything, but qGIS didn't change, so I tried to look for information on how to do it and the first thing I found was the plugin, I added it and put the wombat theme, then I saw your comment and I was curious because I don't know how to use it without the plugin as you say, but at no time I had problems with the theme, I clarify that. – Aradnix May 31 '19 at 19:08

Had the same issue on Fedora Linux a long time. Since the latest QGIS Version 3.4.4 the 'Night Mapping' theme works. On the other hand I had problems with the 'Load QSS - UI Themes' plugin. Check your version and try an update. Maybe your problem is also solved.

  • Create a issue if you have problems with this plugin ,github.com/All4Gis/Load-QSS/issues , thanks @Michael – Fran Raga Feb 14 '19 at 19:33
  • @FranRaga: It's a longer time ago -QGIS 3.0 / 3.2 - where I tried the plugin. I'm not shure, if it's meanwhile gone. Maybe it was just Fedora-related. Gonna try it next days. If there is still a problem I give a reply. Thank's. – Michael Feb 14 '19 at 20:08

It works on my installation of QGIS 3.4.2. I screenshot QGIS with the About screen so you can have some technical info.
