Intellij IDEA - How to use dark window decoration?


I'm using Intellij IDEA with the internal theme set to "Dracula" (which is dark) but the window decoration (the frame around the window) remains using the light coloring. The system is running GNOME with Mutter upon Wayland. The default theme is the light theme for both, Gtk4 and Gtk3 applications. How I can change the color of the window decoration of IDEA?

I've tried:

  • $ xprop # Doesn't work on Wayland.

  • $ GTK_THEME=Adwaita-dark /usr/bin/idea # Doesn't work.

  • $ GTK2_RC_FILES="/usr/share/themes/Adwaita-dark/gtk-2.0/gtkrc" /usr/bin/idea # Doesn't work, gnome-themes-extra is installed.

GtkInspector cannot be used here because IDEA is using Java and Swing. Is there an environment-variable which I'm missing or a trick with Looking Glass?
