Problem with uniform look for Qt and GTK apps


I'm running Slackware 13.1 with Openbox as WM and want to setup Qt and GTK applications to have unifom look. As I understand, for Qt apps this can be done with QGtkStyle.

I setup GTK theme and icons, then run qtconfig and from GUI style combobox select GTK+. At this moment I receive error message in console
Code:
QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.
I google around it and find several topics that suggests to add to the ~/.profile next string
Code:
export GTK2_RC_FILES="$HOME/.gtkrc-2.0"
So I add this line, but this don't help. Even after reboot I get same error when try to run qtconfig again.

Any hints how to solve this issue?

When I want a uniform look, I just get matching GTK and Qt themes, e.g. by downloading an Oxygen theme for GTK2's widgets and icons.

You can use the QtCurve-KDE4 and QtCurve-Gtk2 packages from Slackbuilds.

Maybe QtCurve is a solution, but QGtkStyle is already available in system, so why not use it?

Maybe QGtkStyle doesn't work. I know for sure that QtCurve does... It's just a suggestion.

Seems that problem in Slackware's Qt library, it compiled without --gtkstyle option. Anyone know why?

In the same line as QtCurve, I use Oxygen-Gtk:

https://projects.kde.org/projects/pl...ork/oxygen-gtk

I load it from ~/.gtkrc-2.0.
