Dark mode on Xournal++

Recently I installed Xournal++ in Ubuntu. I came across this link for a cool nord theme. I tried to install this to my Xournal++ application, but I am a complete newbie to both Linux and GitHub so I have zero idea about what to do. I did however install the Git application with sudo apt install git, but I’m not sure what to do after this.

The entire time I thought that the entire interface including toolbar will turn black with the theme. But only later realised that the above theme only changes ink colours and not the interface. I then changed the Appearance on Settings from Light to Dark mode. Now the interface is in Dark mode. Thanks to all who helped

Depending on which package manager (SNAP or APT) you used to install Xournal++, you can simply add the xournalpp-nord theme as follows:

SNAP installed

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/juansegaes/xournalpp-nord/main/toolbar.ini 
>> ~/snap/xournalpp/current/.config/xournalpp/toolbar.ini

APT installed

curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/juansegaes/xournalpp-nord/main/toolbar.ini 
>> ~/.config/xournalpp/toolbar.ini

Notice that what the above two commands do is append the contents of this toolbar.ini to the files ~/snap/xournalpp/current/.config/xournalpp/toolbar.ini and ~/.config/xournalpp/toolbar.ini respectively (creating the file if it doesn’t exist) … The same thing can be done alternatively by editing those files and manually adding the content.
