The problem of Ubuntu package is "kubuntu-defaults" package, which makes QtCurve config load every time you login.And this config prevents working of gtk-kde4. Deleting "kubuntu-defaults" is really cruel step as for me. That's why I had to replace that config in "kubuntu-defaults" folder after installation, and return it back after uninstalling. For ubuntu it works, but in Debian there is no kubuntu-defaults, and installing don't replace anything. But while removing script inside deb didn't check if replacing was done and tried to delete non-existing file, what made uninstaller crash. Some hours ago I fixed it and now Ubuntu package version is 0.9.1.1 and it can be download by link at this page.

Hi, I tried everything you wrote, but package system says always the same:

freedom:~# LANG=EN_us apt-get remove kcm-gtk-kde4
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: The package kcm-gtk-kde4 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it.
freedom:~#

So how can I reinstall it and delete it?

Icon change seems not to work, at least not in Firefox where the rest (theme and font) does change though.
Except: I switch to oxylight, then the icons have the same ugly shape but are dark blue instead of this muddy green they are otherwise. For all the other icon sets, Firefox reverts to the default Tango ones that ship with Gnome.
Oh and to note, I have the firefox-kde thing from OpenSUSE on Karmic.

In Karmic at first run I had only KDE icons packs and I don't really remember if any of them worked at that moment with GTK apps. You'd better try to download GTK icons, put them into ~/.icons and choose them in app.

Hi.
You should set the bugAddress() field of the KAboutData object in the code of the gtk-kde4 daemon to point to the URL of this site.
Otherwise we are getting crash reports in KDE bugtracker like this one:
https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=200452 (you should check it too)

Thanks!

The menus in gimp don't display properly. The entries that are supposed to be grayed out are showing as normal, so it looks to the user as if they should be clickable but of course they are not.

This gives the user the impression that the the menu entry is not working when in fact it should be grayed out.

In KDE 4.2.3 (also in 4.2.2), Arch Linux, when you use the Appearance section of System Settings to change the theme, changing "Select style" is the only thing that lets you Apply. Checking and unchecking the KDE colors option or changing the icons does not un-gray the Apply button, so you have to change the style and back again.

Thanks :)
