Restore GTK integration after removing KDE; this shows how to remove the kde-theme for gtk, and now I want to do the same for qt-applications. I have tried qt4-qtconfig, and it does not work.

Here is an example from a qt application (krita):

kde theme example

As you can see the button has kde style, and it hadn't before I installed KDE.

So my question is; how do I remove the kde button and menu-style in qt-applications, and restore to the default?

I have Ubuntu 14.04.

Here is to uninstall the pesky kde icons still used on some qt applications.

sudo apt-get purge oxygen-cursor-theme oxygen-cursor-theme-extra oxygen-icon-theme oxygen-icon-theme-complete gtk2-engines-oxygen gtk3-engines-oxygen kde-style-oxyge

Be careful not to uninstall an application you want or need to keep before you accept the changes

Reboot for the changes to take effect.

I've already done this, and it doesn't even work for gtk-applications. For gtk-applications you have to do as described in the thread i linked to, and I want to do the same for qt-applications. –  gustavwiz Jul 3 at 19:08
    
@gustavwiz what is your current gtk theme? –  mchid Jul 3 at 19:15

@gustavwiz I've tried a couple of gtk themes with krita and noticed the kde icons were static. This is possibly because I have oxygen icons installed. I would try sudo apt-get purge oxygen-cursor-theme oxygen-cursor-theme-extra oxygen-icon-theme oxygen-icon-theme-complete gtk2-engines-oxygen gtk3-engines-oxygen kde-style-oxygen then reboot for the changes to take affect. –  mchid Jul 3 at 19:29
