Yes, kids, it is true!

I dreamed about it!

GtkStyle[1] is a Qt4 Style (Theme Engine) that uses the GTK+ theme
engine to draw the Qt widgets (the opposite of gtk-qt). This means
that all of the Qt widgets are going to look like a 100% copy of your
current GTK+ theme ones, unlike if you are using Qt3's Cleanlooks,
which is just a clearlooks like theme or QTCurve.

Qt3 had no Cleanlooks. That's Qt4 theme engine.

Unfortunately it's Qt4-only, but I guess that won't matter once
openSUSE 11 comes out.

Of course, KDE4 is using Qt4, PSI 0.1x is using Qt4 and more, more more.

I have packaged the GtkStyle (libqt4-gtkstyle) in my home repository
if someone wants to play:

I will try it :) !


For openSUSE 10.3 you will need to add also the KDE4:STABLE repository
to get Qt version 4.4:


I am wondering if this is something worth adding to openSUSE 11?


Maybe to GNOME CD, where SaX2 using Qt4 exists?
