Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

Use any widget theme with Krita, outside KDE with a tiny cheat

export KDE_FULL_SESSION=true && krita

It may have other collateral effects I haven't figured yet, not only on krita, but perhaps even elsewhere. Possibly DANGEROUS.

Be warned that other widget themes besides plastique and oxygen are known to be often broken outside KDE, that's the reason for such theme-enforcing policy. If your preferred theme doesn't work on Krita, don't complain about that to them, they've manifestly done that in order to avoid trying to make adjustments for every theme under the sun.

It strikes me as odd that a given program would have exceptional problems with themes, though, I don't remember that happening elsewhere. Usually "theme-enforcing" comes from the app not being "all that native"/alien-ish to the distro, such as XnView, which has hard-coded/its own "duplicate" themes.

UPDATE: nowadays you need "KRITA_NO_STYLE_OVERRIDE=1"

("no" style override meaning that Krita itself won't override the KDE style, even though you're overriding Krita's override)
