Run your Ubuntu/Debian 64 bit system with the latest kernel!

Posted 09-02-2015 at 02:48 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Tags bugs, theme

UPDATE: whatever happened before, it seems that now it can be partly solved by simply commenting out the font-related lines in /usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0/kdeglobals (not to be confused with KDE's own file with the same name!).

After a while (after a massive upgrade) the randomness of the thing stopped, the correct theming consistently fails. More evidently fonts, icon theme, and colors (including tooltips' colors). I'm not sure the widget's "design" is also affected,...
