Thread: Kde 4.2 and kde4-gtk-qt-engine

    Default Kde 4.2 and kde4-gtk-qt-engine


    Hi,

    I recently upgraded kde 4.1.4 to 4.2 and one of the side effects is
    that kde4-gtk-qt-engine does't work anymore.
    All gtk apps like firefox looks terrible !

    Is there a way that gtk apps looks like kde theme for kde 4.2 ?

    Cheers.
    Kang

    Hi farcusnz,

    Thank you for your fast answer !
    For sure, I will try kde4-kcm_gtk (is it replacing kde4-gtk-qt-engine
    in 11.1 ?).

    Hope this will solve my gtk apps display issues.

    Bye.

    kde4-kcm_gtk only helps to theme gtk apps under kde. the best thing to
    do is to apply qtcurve. gtk-qt-engine does work for me after update(it
    didn't before) but imho it does it job poorly

    Thanks for reply !

    I tried kde4-kcm_gtk with QtCure but I'm not fully satisfied. The
    scrollbar is not themed, and the theme doesn't really comply with the
    oxygen theme.
    I also tried oxigen theme for firefox, but it is not really satisfying
    (ie: the scrollbar remains not themed and blue).

    jurgis : Could you tell me from which repo comes from
    yourkde4-gtk-qt-engine package ?

    Cheers,
    kang

    The blue scrollbar is from QTcurve. There should be an option within
    QTcurve to change this setting.

    btw - using QTcurve is not a requirement of kcm-gtk. You should be able
    to use whatever style / theme you prefer and it should stick in gtk
    apps.
    Opensuse switcehd to kcm-gtk from gtk-qt because kcm-gtk does a better
    job.

    Following your advices, I searched an oxygen theme for gtk.
    I found this one, that I installed :

    'KDE4 Oxygen new port for GNOME GNOME-Look.org'
    (http://tinyurl.com/6cw3x6)

    And I must say that it renders pretty good !


    Thx !

    but you shouldn't need a seperate theme for gtk apps. That's the idea of
    kcm-gtk. You should be able to use your kde theme in gtk apps without
    problem.

    Hi! I'm using OpenSUSE 11.1 with KDE 4.2, and I installed the 11.0
    version of kde4-gtk-qt-engine. I didn't use 1-click Install, but I
    downloaded and installed the right package manually from the OpenSUSE
    Build Service. It installed with no problems. It's working well, and so
    far I haven't noticed anything wrong. But I wonder why they won't make
    the package officially for 11.1. It has everything that kcm_gtk has, and
    even more...
