Upgraded to KDE 3.5 gnome apps don't have theme

Hello everyone,

Please, let me just clear the air and say that I am not looking for "Switch to gnome it's better" type of answers. I have tried many desktops and KDE is the one for me.

I have recently upgraded to KDE 3.5.0 (which included a gtk upgrade as well gtk2-2.8.3-4).

My problem is that all of my gnome apps that used to try to follow the KDE theme, just look like crap now.

I've included this screenshot, note the radio buttons, and how the actual buttons and dropdowns do not have borders.

DOes anyone have any ideas, anyhelp would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

EDIT: Alright, the answer to this was so simple. I had a theme which I compiled from, and it just had to be recompiled on the 3.5 system.
