    XFCE and QT


    Hello all,
    This subject doesnt really fall into any one category, but I thought I would begin by posting my question here. I am running slackware 10.2, and I use XFCE as my default windows manager. I have noticed that when I develop an application using the QT libraries I can use that application in KDE and the gui is smooth and styled. However, if I launch that same application in XFCE it turns into a filthy conglomeration of ancient widgets not unlike the scribbling left behind by our caveman ancestors. Can anyone explain this to me?

    Thanks in Advance

    I think KDE loads a settings daemon which set the QT theme... Try opening the control panel for XFCE and turning on the "start kde services by default" or what it's called.

    Well, ok I tried that, and restarted x, unfortunately it didnt make a difference.

    Anyone have any ideas?
