I've installed Lubuntu and replaced the default players with Clementine for audio and VLC for video.

The problem I have is that neither pick up the GTK theme, the way they usually do in Gnome/Xfce. Instead they use some pretty ugly and totally off theme.

To be clear, both are Qt4 applications and should pickup the theme by default.

How can I fix this?


Install qt4-qtconfig, run qtconfig and on the first tab choose GTK+ for Select GUI style.

    After extensive googling in the meantime, I found some Arch Linux users with the same issue, installing libgnomeui (actually in Ubuntu it's libgnomeui-0) and dependencies fixed the issue. Thanks for the answer anyway. Should this be filed as bug? – findingsimo Nov 25 '11 at 16:10
  • @Syanide If there's no bug report yet, then yes, that's probably a good idea. – Eliah Kagan Jul 4 '13 at 4:01

libgnomui-0 itself is not needed for the bugfix, but only one of its dependencies, libgnome2-common. And the latter does not impose any further dependencies being installed.
