gimp looks ugly in kde

Which additional packages should I install to make GIMP look better in KDE without installing the whole GNOME? At the moment it looks pretty awful - dialogs are big and not-anti-aliased (although everything looks ok in KDE);

can you please point out names of the packages one should install in order to make GNOME apps look better in KDE?

I believe that is controlled by the ~/.gtk-kde file and you selecting in the Appearance & Themes -> Colors in the Control Center and enable the checkbox "Apply colors to non-KDE applications".
