Hi thanks I followed the instructions in that page. However starting ark from the cli gives this:

Code:
bash-4.1$ ark
QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.
Connecting to deprecated signal QDBusConnectionInterface::serviceOwnerChanged(QString,QString,QString)
QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.
and it is not working...

I guess a quick logout/login could solve it.
What you get from the command line if you issue 'echo $GTK2_RC_FILES'?

Have you tried running qtconfig? Make sure to save any changes you make.

make sure in qtconfig you select GUI style either GTK+ or Desktop settings
also make sure you accurately followed the explanations in ALienBob's post

if you have used KDE some time ago before switching to Xfce, are you sure the KDE settings do not mess/overwrite the qticonfig settings?

Hi thanks, I did use KDE before and your post made me think maybe I should delete my ~/.kde folder. After I did that I ran qtconfig aggain. That resolved my issue completely all my KDE apps looks like gtk apps now!

Here's my Slackware64 14.0 + Xfce workstation.
  • Faenza icon theme
  • Aero Mouse Cursor
  • Axe Rounded Xfwm4 theme
  • Clearlooks Phenix theme (GTK2+3)

The wallpaper (ripped from a Solaris workstation) is deliberately sober, since I work on the thing six days a week.

Cheers,

Niki

~/.themes, not ./themes

I use the Divergence A-New-Hope theme for gtk and xfwm. http://i.imgur.com/tTakiIt.png
