How can I make my Qbittorrent look somewhat more like my GTK theme or
just normal without switching/changing my current theme?

As usual I tried something and this came out:

How it looks without changes:

How it looks when I save settings with "Qt settings 4" while having Qbittorrent open: Looks much better |:3

The problem is when I close and open it again it looks like there the settings didn't save. (It looked like the first image)

I have no idea if I'm misunderstanding some stuff here but this what I can make out of it.
Thanks for reading, any help kind of help would be quite nice.

Try installing qt4-qtconfig:

sudo apt-get install qt4-qtconfig

Then run it by typing:


Click on the "Appearance" tab.

Choose GTK+ in the "GUI Style" dropdown.

Choose "File -> Save".


Explanation: The GTK+ style uses the GTK+ engine to render all qt components.
