Qt4 style it's only structure of folders and files for this app. To generate GTK theme like your current KDE style you have to press "Apply" in 'GTK styles", every time when you change your KDE style.
Regenerating must solve problem with horisontal scrollbar. And with fonts it's really difficult now. This feature sometimes works, sometimes not, try to write fonts by hands into gtkrc-2.0 file.
I'll try to fix fonts to the next version.
If something will be wrong please, give me a feedback.

I'm finding neither a usable binary or compilable source. This is pretty thoroughly messed up. Anybody able to compile on Kubuntu Hardy? If so, how?

I just get "Shared library was not found" after copying files over from the *binary* download.

GTK style shortcut appears in appearance section. It's missing the icon though.

I'm on Kubuntu Hardy Remix. KDE path seems to be /user/lib/kde4. The folders exist where the readme says to copy files, but they look out of place (ie no similar files in those folders).

Any ideas?

Try to insert: find_package(KDE4)
after PROJECT (kcm_gk4)
(to second string)
in CMakeLists.txt in the binary file folder

And about path, maybe /usr/lib/kde4 ?

After compiling you'll get a lib path in source top folder. You can find kcm_gk4.so inside. try to copy it into <kde4_path>/lib/kde4.

Is this going to be included in kde?
Maybe it could be part of 4.1 if you're fast or even in 4.2

Sorry, but i can't understand, are you proposing me to include it in KDE4, or are you asking if it will be included?

i'm using kubuntu intrepid ibex (8.10) x86 KDE4. (KDE 4.0.3).
i successfully compiled and installed gtk-kde4 0.6.1 and the qt4 theme and chose "Use current KDE style" and clicked 'Apply', and the window quickly popped up to apply the style/take focus and then closed. (which is normal like you said). but my gtk apps (like firefox3) still don't use the theme. i also set the icons to 'default.kde' but that gets reset to 'contrastlarge' every time open the module in systemsettings.

could this be a permissions issue?

Icons don't reseting. In 0.6.1 state isn't saved, but icons must apply. But i can't say nothing about style. Could you send me /home/<user>/.kde4/share/config/gtkrc-2.0 ? I'll try to analyze and fix the problem

Hi, I'm trying to compile this from the source, and I get an odd error when I try to 'sudo make install'. It tells me

No rule to make target 'install'. Stop.

I didn't get any errors during the make or cmake, I set the install prefix, and I have all the required dev packages.
Any help would be appreciated.

You must do cmake and sudo make install from top folder of app, not from src subfolder. Did you do it right?

Thanks for the fast reply. I feel rather stupid, but that fixed it.

But now, I have a problem with Using the current KDE style. When I hit apply, a menu appears and then quickly closes, and none of the gtk apps get changed. Other themes work fine. Suggestions?

Did you unpack qt4 theme into /home/<user>/.themes ? And dont be afraid window - it's normally, elements takes focus by this way :)

Why I can not get the QT4 style in my select list?I have done everything readme tell me to do and everything is ok.Why?

Report

You mustn't choose this theme. Select "Use current KDE style" instead of qt4 theme. You copied this because this is using like a folder structure for generating copy of your KDE style.

I'm really not sure why this isn't working for me. In System Settings, Under "GTK Style" I see:
QLibrary::load_sys:Cannot load /usr/lib/kde4/lib/kde4/kcm_gk4.so (/usr/lib/kde4/lib/kde4/libkcm_gk4.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

user@localhost:~$ ls -la /usr/lib/kde4/lib/kde4/kcm_gk4.so
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 842631 2008-04-17 10:06 /usr/lib/kde4/lib/kde4/kcm_gk4.so

user@localhost:~$ ls -la /usr/lib/kde4/lib/kde4/libkcm_gk4.so
ls: /usr/lib/kde4/lib/kde4/libkcm_gk4.so: No such file or directory

What gives?

kubuntu 7.10 amd64.

GTK is a pain in the a$$.
