Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 495138
Arora 0.6 doesn't follow system's Qt style.
Last modified: 2009-05-29 22:39:33 EDT
Description of problem:
The new Arora from updates-testing, together with other updates there, doesn't follow the Qt style that is set in KDE's settings.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install KDE and Arora 0.6.
2. Run some Qt apps, like VLC or Quassel.
3. Run Arora.
Arora's look differs greatly from other Qt 4 apps' look. The theme used seems to be plastique.
All Qt apps follow the Qt style that is selected in KDE's settings.
The same bug seems to apply to Rawhide.
Arora developers say that there're some issues with current Oxygen theme and decided not to use it, so when Arora detects Oxygen, fallbacks to Plastique. These fixes are already in 4.3, so it'll be working again once KDE 4.3 is released...
You can run Arora with style option: "arora -style oxygen".
I'm closing this bug as WONTFIX but I'll look how many and which changes in Oxygen are commited and maybe then I can possibly backport it to 4.2 branch.
Thanks for the quick response and useful bits on the issue. Good to know that this is intentional, and just a temporary solution.
arora-0.7.0-1.fc10 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 10.
Looks like Arora upstream changed their mind and now Oxygen is again supported - even buggy. They ask to fill bugs to Oxygen upstream instead of disable-workaround.
arora-0.7.0-1.fc10 has been pushed to the Fedora 10 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
arora-0.7.0-1.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
