    Phoronix: Ubuntu Finds New Love With Qt

    Mark Shuttleworth has announced today on his blog that as part of Ubuntu 11.10 they are looking at expanding their support for the Qt tool-kit. They are looking at now including the Qt libraries as part of their default Ubuntu installation and to include worth while Qt applications...

    Exactly, QtCurve does not render color gradients correctly. Additionally, it causes instability in some applications (e.g. MonoDevelop warns you when you start it up with QtCurve).

    Yes, first it was implemented in Oxygen I think. My point was that QtCurve has all the options from Oxygen plus many more.

    Ah, ok. But it also works

    Yes, it's an alternative to have a consistent theme for many apps, but personally I don't like some things from the Oxygen look, and they are not configurable.

    It does work right now for me, you can see in the screenshot, it's only a setting of the used gradient.

    The same with QtCurve, it is also configured via System Settings.

    One think I also like from QtCurve is that you can configured it to look like almost anything, including Oxygen.

    That's way I use it The problem which I see with Oxygen is that is has very few configuration options. With QtCurve you can use and create hundreds of themes, in Oxygen you have to use the same boring theme. For example, you can in QtCurve enable the "drag windows from titlebar, menubar, toolbar, etc." thing; or you can also hide all the menubars and statusbars with shortcuts or with a button in window decorator. In this screenshot you can see a small M on the left in the window decorator. It's for hiding the menubar of any window.

    QtCurve is better than Oxygen because as being an engine, you can configure many aspects beside look (and the look it self of course), but in Oxygen you can not configure the look and only a small portion of the settings compared to the hundreds of settings in QtCurve.

    This is not GTK+ apps rendering using Qt, but just another case of one Qt-theme and one GTK+-theme looking consistent with each other, similarly to the existing qtcurve (though admittedly looking a lot better than qtcurve).

    Look a look at this screenshot from kde-look.org, in my opinion, it looks much better than Oxygen.
