Thanks for making this into an RPM, works great! Although, does it not include the Kcontrol module?

The control module was added into the menus by the RPM into:

system -> system -> configuration -> KDE -> look'nfeel

instead of:

system -> configuration -> KDE -> look'nfeel

Thank you very much for creating this rpm!

Unfortunately, it keeps loading and loading on startup, and finally nothing happens ;(

Is that maybe due to the incorrect location like liron said?

Same thing - the kcontrol module won't load with this rpm, and it's not registered into the kcontrol container, either.

 Menu fix

 
 by davidsansome on: Jun 18 2004
 
Score 50%

Hi ntesa,

The problems people are having with this RPM are caused by the "section" entry being set incorrectly in the /usr/lib/menu/kcmgtk.menu file.

It should read:
section="System/Configuration/KDE/LookNFeel"

Also, although it's not really necessary, you should change the package name in the menu file to:

?package(gtk-qt-engine): ...

Thanks for taking the time to build this RPM :)

 Uhmm...

I installed this RPM and I see absolutely no difference in The GIMP or Gnucash or any other GTK apps.


I am using Mandrake 10.0 Official on a PII 450Mhz with 256Mb RAM.


The reason I refuse to use GTK based apps is because they are ugly as hell and give me a headache just looking at them.

This GTK-QT engine did nothing to help my situation. I guess it works on some systems and not on others :(

I do hope that someday someone can come up with an item like this that does work. I would like to be able to use some of the GTK based apps without my eyes exploding :)

This style is only for gtk2 apps, so gtk1 apps will still look the same. As far as I know gnucash is still based on gtk1, and gimp1 is also based on gtk1, only gimp2 is based on gtk2. Under the "KDE Control Center/LookNFeel/GTK styles and fonts" make sure you select "Use my KDE style in GTK applications" and "Use my KDE fonts in GTK applications". So it should work if you have the right settings and only for gtk2 apps.

You're engine doesn't help the GTK1 or GTK2 apps on my system - They are all equally ugly as hell. Although, it could be because of my computer and not your package. I am glad that you app works for others.

Make sure your $HOME/.gtkrc-2.0 looks something like this:

# This file was written by KDE
# You can edit it in the KDE control center, under "GTK styles and fonts"

include "/usr/share/themes/Qt/gtk-2.0/gtkrc"

style "user-font"
{
font_name="Lucida Sans 10"
}
widget_class "*" style "user-font"

You'll probably have a different font there, but the include line should be the same. You can set this by using the KControl module as I explained in my previous post.

If your gtk2 apps still don't look like your kde apps, please send an email to the gtk-qt author (mememe at davidsansome.com) or post a bug report on the gtk-qt page here:

Good luck!

 WARNING!

 
 by greatscot on: Jun 20 2004

I installed this engine on Mandrake 10.0 Official and it changed something that would not allow me to use my user account the next login (I always logout and log back in immediately after installing ANY software). I logged in and the system just hung with my wallpaper showing, but no kicker or desktop icons or anything that would let me use my computer. I had to CTRL+ALT+BACKSPACE to kill X and login to my root account and uninstall this engine in order to be able to use the user account that this engine was installed under.

This is typical of the "non-standards" problem with Linux. A package will work on some systems but not on other systems - even if they all have the exact same OS installed.

I guess the best advice is to use at your own risk.

This is a known problem with Mandrake 10.0 and has been discussed on the main gtk-qt page before:

http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=9714

The problem is that Mandrake 10 starts magicdev when starting kde and magicdev is a gtk2 app, but kde is not completely loaded yet, so the gtk-qt theme engine can't create the gtk2 theme yet. The only fix that I know of so far, is to either uninstall or disable magicdev when kde starts (but I don't know how to disable it).

Linux has "non-standards" problems as you put it just because different distributions have different packages and different behaviours, so this problem would happen on any Linux distro that starts a gtk2 app when kde starts, although I'm not aware of any other distros doing this, except for Mandrake 10.

I'll add a note to the description, thanks for the heads up :)

I did some investigating, in order to possibly try and get this engine to work on my Mandrake 10.0 system, and I found out that magicdev has nothing to do with gtk apps, at least on my machine. Magicdev is used to let the machine know there is a CD in the CD tray, it isn't used for the display of gtk apps at all.

Wanna try again?

If this engine doesn't work on Mandrake 10.0 systems, how did you get it to work on a Mandrake 10.0 system? And, why even make an RPM for Mandrake 10.0 in the first place?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
