Just finished installing gtk-qt-engine. How do I use it?


I just finished installing it, how do I use it exactly? I am running Slackware 13.37 64-bit.

I suspect you need to set your GTK+ theme to use it: try GTK-Chtheme.

I believe I tried it once though and found it wasn't too stable (this was a few years ago, but it looks like gtk-qt-engine hasn't been updated since 2009). I have had better luck with QtCurve.

If you are going to stick with the default Oxygen theme, then you might find this thread interesting. I have got used to my (heavily customized) QtCurve theme though and would miss it (especially the setting where the title bar is hidden when maximized).
