Hello,

I'm unable to start TexStudio. This is the output I get when I try to open it using

$ texstudio

    which OS are you using ?
    What installation file did you use ?

      I'm using Fedora and used DNF to install TexStudio.

    it seems to be a problem with Fedora's Qt5/GTK install. Nothing we can do about it ...

    For anyone who lands here from search,

    You can temporarily run textstudio with sudo.

    this should do the trick without root:
    QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk texstudio
