I want to know if its possible to use the KDE widget style in unity. Basically have all my programs run looking like there in KDE but while still allowing me to use unity. I dont want to use the Oxygen gtk theme either, I like all the smooth hover animations and such in kde, but thats where my love of KDE ends.

I know I cant run kwin in unity as unity requires compiz. However I know its possible to use compiz with KDE.

What sparked the idea was Digikam, I use it as my primary photo manager, and I set it to use the Oxygen Widget style so I could use a dark theme for it. When I changed it all the animations and everything KDE works great.

in case my question was at all confusing, im basically trying to do this opposite of this guy; Ubuntu is kde styled after install AND removal
