Hi!

I've finally installed kde4 and now I'm happy)

But I can't make gtk apps look fine) I've tried install this improvement and I've got "No qt theme". I suppose I've installed gtk-engines-pixmap, but I can't find gtk-engine-pixbuf anywhere. I've found 0.22 release, but it want's glib-1.2.x. Is it ok? Or there is some fresh version of pixbuf? Where can I get it? (i need source, becouse I use Gentoo).

Thans for your worK!

I have compiled and installed this (had to install cmake and kdelibs5-dev, running Kubuntu 8.04.1 and KDE 4.1.1) - but I can't seem to get results.
I am getting the warning about qt4 theme, and it doesn't change the look of any GTK apps. Have I missed something?

I had previously used gtk-engines-kde4 and it wasn't working right so I uninstalled it.

After removing gtk-engine-kde4 I installed gtk-kde4 0.8b on my kde 4.1 system but I haven't been able to get it to skin firefox or thunderbird. It only works on inkscape and gimp. I tried opening synaptic but it didn't have the oxygen look either. Does anyone knows what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you!

Try to create symlink of ~/.kde4/share/config/gtkrc in /etc/gtk-2.0/

sudo ln -s ~/.kde4/share/config/gtkrc /etc/gtk-2.0/

These paths may be isn't right. Try to check them using $GTK_RC_FILES variable

I have a similar problem, the software is installed but it does not work when opening a gnome application. And I don't see the icon in system settings, I see a question mark at its place.

It works very well. Thank you for this nice application. I have completely moved to kde 4.1 now.

BTW, you who have trouble compile it on Hardy remix or ubuntu 8.04 with the missing automoc4, just use this command.

cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/lib/kde4/lib
make
sudo make install

And ofcourse you have installed the kde 4 lib dev files? :)

Hm...:) I had such problem with automoc4 on my Kubuntu Hardy, but i solved it by installing and compiling automoc from source: http://kde.mirrors.tds.net/pub/kde/unstable/automoc4/0.9.84/automoc4-0.9.84.tar.bz2

But thanks for this advice. It can help another users to solve ploblem without headache

It seems like you are using KDE 4.1. To tell the truth i didn't try to install this app under 4.1. You could try to install app from binary archive, I think it must work. If not we could talk online to solve this problem, because i am interested too.

I'm using Kde4 from subversion (now Version 4.00.82).
I try to install from binary, but doesn't works. One question, binary are for 64bit? Because I have Ubuntu 64bit...
Ok, this is the result in system settings after installing from binary:
http://img127.imageshack.us/img127/6223/gtkgj2.png

Now I try to build your "Qt4 GTK style" and building succesfuly in /home/lex/.themes
I created a file /home/lex/.kde4/share/config/gtkrc-2.0 with this text:

include "/home/lex/.themes/qt4/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"
style "user-font"
{ font_name="Liberation Sans 10 " }
widget_class "*" style "user-font"
gtk-theme-name="Clearlooks"
gtk-font-name="Liberation Sans 10 "

and the result is there (for example synaptic):
http://img389.imageshack.us/img389/5066/synapticms0.png
but the colors do not seem satisfactory and if I restart kde, /home/lex/.kde4/share/config/gtkrc-2.0 is replaced by gtkrc-2.0 default....What do you think?
