Qt It's a rather unclear time over at Nokia in Espoo (Finland!), with people coming and going, and changes in development strategy. The latest one is, I think, a good one: Nokia has stated it will commit fully to Qt as the sole application development framework for both Symbian and MeeGo.

AFAIK you cannot get close to doing this in GNOME. AFAIK in GNOME there is no ability to configure the Qt themes to make Qt applications match visually with the selected GNOME theme. You actually seem to agree with this.


not completely true. In the default installation, Qt has a theme that uses GTK itself to paint, so witll use whatever theme is selected in GNOME http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2008/05/13/introducing-qgtkstyle/

now, that to me is ruining the look of an otherwise perfectly good application, but tasetes are tastes i guess :p
so it's important that it's possible

That is a Qt project. GNOME itself ignores Qt, doesn't it? This is one of my main reasons for ignoring GNOME, because it seems to be trying to put barriers in my way from running applications that I might want to run.

If there was some active attempt by GNOME to accommodate outside applications in an integrated way, please someone tell me about it and I might pay some attention to GNOME thereafter.
