With the release of openSUSE 11.2, KDE-integration of a few important
apps (most notably Firefox) has progressed a great deal, including
fitting icon themes and dialogs. The default GTK style is still Curve
though, which isn't quite consistent with the Oxygen widget style.
This can be easily remedied with the "Oxygen-Molecule" GTK style

and it would be nice to see this or something to that effect in future
versions of the distribution.

I agree, although for me it would be enough to have a version of Oxygen-
Molecule in the KDE repositories.

#2: Markus K (kamikazow) (2009-12-12 09:49:11)
Itn't it more preferable to fix the theme engine wrapper? Currently
it's buggy with a few GTK apps like Firefox.

#3: Jimmy Berry (boombatower) (2010-01-03 04:37:17)
I would love to have the theme wrapper fixed. I like how gtk
applications looks more consistent with KDE (I like it a lot), but it
sucks to have buggy input fields (most notable in Eclipse). This really
needs to be fixed and an update sent.

Please note that the qtcurve-gtk2 bug was fixed upstream, but no update has
been delivered. Please see bnc #556124
( for details.
AFAIK the updated package lives in Gnome::Factory.

Oxygen-molecule is indeed a step into the right direction. But still if
fails if you set a different color scheme. Also Firefox doesn't look
quite right. Instead, I suggest to use gtk-oxygen-engine, which solves
these issues (mostly). We already package it for openSUSE:Factory and
should just set it in kcmgtk.

+ Done for 11.4 using oxygen-gtk.
