Anyone tell me how to change Qwit back to GNOME native look?

I downloaded Qwit twitter client some days before. Qwit is a Twitter client based on QT. My Fedora 9 (GNOME) system has KDE environment installed when I installed some other softwares before, so I just downloaded the qwit-0.6 executable archive, after decompressed, double-click qwit file and it runed and worked fine.

But today, I loged into the KDE desktop enviroment (I usually log in GNOME), Qwit was automatically runed with KDE native look. But when I reloged in GNOME desktop, the Qwit default look had no change.

Qwit run in GNOME but with a KDE native look, looks so urgly.

  1. It is worth nothing that your Qwit _did not_ have the default GTK look. Check closely at your first screenshot. It doesn't match your desktop.

    Your GNOME desktop is running Fedora's default Nodoka theme, while Qwit is using the Qt-Cleanlooks theme. They're close (and a very reasonable default for Qt), but not the same.

    If Qt doesn't have a style set, it uses Qt-Cleanlooks by default. When you went into KDE, it set the style to whatever KDE uses, and that took over. By running Qtconfig-Qt4, you set the style to something better, like QGtkStyle.

    It's worth noting that I believe KDE will override Qt4's theme configuration. If so, you should set the same style in both Qtconfig-Qt4 _AND_ in KDE's control center. (If you keep using KDE, that is).

    1. @twilightomni Thank you so much for your suggestions. I don't like KDE, GNOME is my default and favourite desktop environment. That's why I dislike the KDE native look in Gnome desktop.

      I've followed Panagiotis' suggest and configured to "GTK" style. It looks perfect as shown on the first image now…
