QGTKStyle : Make QT apps uses your GTK style

I'm a GNOME user (was a KDE user 4 years ago), but sometimes I had to use QT apps on GNOME. QT styles/widgets, ever since from QT3/KDE3, for some reasons, always a pain to my eyes (too shiny I guess). Quite some time ago, I heard about a project started to provide the reverse of gtk-qt-engine , which to make QT apps, uses GTK styles. The project is called, QGTKStyle. But that time, it was in infant stage, so I didn't get to run it.

Last night, while browsing the package list, I just noticed qgtkstyle in Fedora repo (dont know how long its been there, but anyway, YAY!!), installed it, and heres the result:

Before:



After:




Heres a guide on how to do it on Fedora 10:

Install the required stuff: qgtkstyle and kdebase-workspace (you'll need this to configure KDE4 apps to use GTK style.)

After installation, launch /usr/bin/systemsettings. At the appearance page, change style to GTK. Done. :D

(Edit: you may want to adjust the font settings and the mouse cursor settings to match your GNOME theme)

Couldn't you just use qtconfig-qt4 from the qt package?

@dextro,

I've tried that, apparently it does not work for KDE4 apps

I've installed qgtkstyle but I don't want to install a bulk of KDE stuff just to run a simple command (/usr/bin/systemsetting). I bet the systemsetting will save its information somewhere on the filesystem. If you could find it, it'd be great!
