Hi... I am very happy because i have just installed the firefox in my box...
The only problem now i have is that it looks a little strange....
I think that it has a gnome like style..with big buttons and strange effects for the mouse-on and mouse-off events... If i had installed the gnome i would probably could change the overall style.. The problem is that the gnome is not installed and no configuration tool is available... What is the easiest way of configuring look and style?
Thx a lot
One thing that helps is right click on your toolbar and select Customize... It will open a window. Click on "use small icons". The other thing to do is install a new theme. I found a Plastik theme for firefox that looks great and fits in well with kde.
The reason why firefox doesn't automatically use the KDE theme is because it uses GTK which has a separate style/widget system. (KDE uses this thing called QT)
The same will occur with all other programs that use GTK.
When you install gtk-qt engine, an option will appear under Look & Feel in Kcontrol called GTK-Styles. Go to that option and select an option that says something like "Allow GTK apps to use KDE theme", also select the option to allow GTK apps to use KDE fonts. Sorry I can't give you the right kcontrol dialogues coz I am using a machine without KDE at the moment. All your GTK apps including mozilla, firefox, gimp, xchat etc will then look like KDE apps.
thx guys it worked fine .....
I was very luck because suse 9.1 includes the packet in the cd's.
Firstly i tried to compile it on my own but i failed installing it.
I would like to ask one more question... I can't find anywhere in the control center the selection u have told me any good idea?
