Qt There is a group of consistency freaks out there (like myself) who are not very fond of mixing Gtk+ with Qt applications. The reasons for this are not just graphical, but also behavioural; Gtk+ applications behave differently than Qt applications (menus are different, layout is different, etc.). Trolltech obviously can't tackle the behavioural side of this issue, but they can tackle the graphical one. This is exactly where QGtkStyle comes into play.

Under kde you can use the qt-gtk engine which attempts to render gtk widgets as qt widgets. Kde distros usually include it by default and can be found as a menu setting under appearance.

The results are not perfect but can mask away a lot of the horror.

I'm not trying to make my GTK apps look like Qt apps, I'm trying them to look like they do under XFce, not like crap.

I believe it was/is due to some bug in KDE 4.0.x, which has been fixed... It removed the theme from GTK instead of just leaving it alone ;-)
