Description Simon Lewis 2012-04-29 03:06:53 EDT
I have been using the KDE desktop up to now, whereby the qt apps use the oxygen colour scheme and gtk apps use the oxygen-gtk engines.

In search of a lightweight desktop to be able to use sound apps at a lower latency I installed razor-qt.

The razor.qt desktop works fine but the qt apps and gtk apps look ugly.

Running qt-config I discovered that there were no default settings for the qt-apps and that qt-config only lists gtk-themes in the drop down menu.

I cannot access the oxygen colour scheme with qt-conig.

Seems to me that the default qt installation is missing some links to the colour schemes...

Those color schemes are part of KDE, not Qt, they are not expected to be available outside of KDE System Settings.

Hi Kevin

Thanks for the prompt reply. Given that the kde colour schemes are the best maintained colour schemes, and they are open source, what stops them being used by the qt apps on a non-kde desktop?

Best regards, Simon

That there's no code in Qt to support them.

Please file a feature request directly with the upstream Qt project if you think this would be a worthwhile feature.
