Tweaking Gnome applications under KDE 4 on Debian Sid (Solution of this problem with other distro should be similar)

  1. At first open

    <span class="text">konsole</span>

    and type there:

    sudo aptitude install gtk-qt-engine-kde4 kwin-style-qtcurve kde-style-qtcurve gtk2-engines-qtcurve
  2. Configure KDE. Open:
    1
    <span class="text">K menu-&gt;System settings-&gt;Appearance</span>

    . Choose

    1
    <span class="text">GTK styles and fonts</span>

    tab, and select there:
    KDE4 GTK Styles and fonts

    • GTK styles: “Use another style: QtCurve
    • GTK fonts: “Use my KDE fonts in GTK applications”
  3. Click Apply and reboot system. After reboot your Iceweasel should look like on screen attached below.
