It gave birth to the question: does Qt support GNOME themes and settings? And to the opposite question: does WxWidgets support KDE themes and settings? I searched internet about it and found that for Qt there is QGtkStyle that renders Qt applications through GTK so it should support GNOME themes. For WxWidgets there are more information about native look'n'feel under KDE. I found two ways: wxQt that uses Qt as a system library for WxWidgets and GTK-QT that is GTK theme that looks native for KDE. GTK-QT uses Qt widgets to determine how it should render its own widgets. So both wxQt and GTK-QT should look good. But some reviews say that they both work bad. It seems that some more investigation is needed. Does someone have any experience with the questions?
