    Didn't we already have this? But anyway. Here goes, featuring my GTK+ integration into KDE 4

    (This is on Gentoo Linux.)

        Most of the icons except the ones in the tray look good (yes it bothers me that the tray icons look dated in comparison to the rest of the theme).

              Yeah, they kinda look 16-color-ish. For the keyboard layout, I guess it's a boring work to redo the whole collection of country flags all over again.

                Hey, my looks almost the same (I wonder why? ). I cut off GTK+ integration, because it installs a lot of GNOME dependencies in Kubuntu. I can't wait to install new Arch Linux release. When I had GNOME it was something like 89c51 desktop, but without ugly macos "features". Btw. it seems that KDE 4 developers made really good looking desktop and many people like its default look.

                  Now that you mention it, the default look of KDE 4 looks to me like the first default look of any DE that doesn't suck.

                  Hmm. Progress.

                              I wish Ubuntu had a nice blue theme. I am using usplash, gdm , wallpapers etc from Bluman. I like Fedora's Nodoka GTK theme and also their Echo icon theme and Bluecurve cursors - very original and refreshing. Without much ado, here's my simple desktop :


                              As a side note, although a theme is people's personal choice, I wish people stop blatantly cloning Windows' or MacOS' themes.

                              Also, I must appreciate OpenSuse's very professional artwork.

                              On a sidenote to using gtk apps on kde-4.2 (like RealNC posted), those using gtk-qt-engine may have observed that running gtk apps as root (with sudo) has the ugly default gnome look - to rectify this, copy over ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde4 as /root/.gtkrc-2.0. Also, those using 64-bit linux and a gtk engine not in default gnome, for the 32-bit apps like acroread to look the same, do copy over the appropriate 32-bit theme engine library to say /usr/lib32/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/engines/. I wish the fallback theme of gnome was a little more aesthetic .
