Make Lxde environment to look nice with QT apps too

Iv’e been struggling to find a easy way to get QT apps to look nice in Lxde, so far they looked like Win 95 did.

A user request motivated me to fix tomahawk.  After it was done, it looked like crap. So decided to hunt down and find a solution to get Lxde theme to work with QT applications too. After awhile, I found a great and easy solution. This is probably not an issue in Gnome or Xfce.

Open terminal and write:


Choose GTK+ in “Select GUI Style

Choose File > Save and close it.

Now your QT applications will look normal.
