Unlike every other application I have opened, LibreOffice does not appear to inherit the system font, icons and menus. Tools->Options->LIbreOffice->View->Use system font for user interface is selected; Tools->Options->LIbreOffice->View->Scaling doesn’t really cut it. What do I need to do to get LibrreOffice using the system settings like every other application?
You need the gtk2-engine + gtk3-engine + kcm-gtk-config packages to be installed. Plus f.e. gtk2-theme-oxygen and gtk3-theme-oxygen.
Use Configure Desktop to change the gtk theme to oxygen-gtk and you’ll have Firefox and others in your KDE style.
This is only relevant if you use LibreOffice with the GNOME integration.
I.e. you have libreoffice-gnome installed, and either:
run LO inside GNOME, not KDE
install ibus which disables the KDE integration.
You could try to uninstall libreoffice-kde4 (and install libreoffice-gnome if it is not installed) and see if it is better then.
But TBH, I’m not sure I understand the original problem completely.
Could you maybe post a screenshot to clarify?
And please also post what libreoffice packages you have installed:
rpm -q libreoffice*
Just to be clear: LibreOffice e.g. has its own icon sets, it doesn’t use the one from the “system”. By default it tries to use a matching one to the one that is configured for your Desktop, but this might not exist and it would have to fall back to a different one.
So it would also be interesting what are your desktop settings actually, i.e. what icon theme and widget style.
And also, what exactly do you mean with KDE?
The standard KDE4 or the new Plasma5?
