Making GTK+ Applications Look Good in KDE

QtCurve might suck, but QGtkStyle (the style Qt uses on Gnome desktop) looks just like the Gnome theme looks, and uses the native dialogs.


If you're using the default Oxygen theme, try the Oxygen Molecule GTK+ theme at:

http://kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=103741

You'll probably have to manually install it, but I find it makes GTK+ applications fit in just as well in KDE as QGtkStyle does for Qt applications in GNOME/XFCE. It still doesn't use native dialogs, but it does make the GTK+ dialog look like it belongs in KDE.

I don't know why more distributions don't package it; the only ones I know of that do are Gentoo and PCLinuxOS, the latter of which uses it by default.
