Something is still puzzling me, why does GNOME run VLC automatically with native GTK+ look-n-feel and not Xfce?
Update: Thanks to the power of tig and grep, I figured the Qt library (qt_init function) defines the desktop environment as GNOME for Xfce (this results in GTK+ theming, GNOME like Open dialogues, etc) by retrieving an X11 atom on the root window and compares it to “xfce4”
Update2: The latest version Qt 4.6.2 doesn't include the code for checking the X11 atom (it's in git), which explains why it doesn't work.
Is there a way to change to gtk+ other than qtconfig, i am on a minimal ubuntu install with openbox and don't want install a lot of qt.ReplyDelete
The QT library is the one that provides the qtconfig tool, so there is no such thing as “a lot of qt”. Then you can always search for GTK+ alternatives, for example have a look at this page, it's a list of suggested applications all in GTK+.ReplyDelete
