The familiar GNOME applications that I have been using in KDE 4.0 since I started testing it all run without a theme. When you have GNOME installed as well as KDE 4.0, there’s a simple way to get your GNOME applications to use your current GTK theme while running in KDE.
Alt-F2 to open the run dialog, and type
Launch and a moment later all running GTK applications, as well as any more
you launch, will switch to your GNOME theme.
gnome-settings-daemon needs to be launched every time you log in to KDE to
continue theming GTK applications. I can’t find the GUI for setting startup
programs in KDE 4.0. Anybody know where it is or what the best way to set this
up would be?
[update] Start the
gnome-settings-daemon automatically by downloading
and copying this launcher in your
~/.kde4/share/autostart folder. You may have to create the autostart folder
