KDE Theme Integration?

Link to this post 12 Mar 10

On apps that aren't KDE native (ktorrent, koffice, konqueror, etc...) I've noticed that the theme is a very basic Windows 95 type of look. I'm sure there has to be a way to change this, because it really bothers me that it isn't pretty and everything is square. Just so you know what I'm talking about I attached a screen shot of a menu that's doing that in google chrome. I'm running slack 13.0, but it's a KDE problem. If I run firefox without a theme it looks like windows 95. Is there a way to have the KDE theme applied to non-kde applications?

I added one of firefox too.

Your problems is related to GTK apps having a default theme.

There are ways to change this although I suggest you to install gtk-kde4 (or something similar in your package manager for your distro). By this you'll be able to change your GTK apps look and feel on your systemsettings :)
