Texmaker GUI looks really bad :(

Hello,

so I have installed Texmaker and wanted to open a file. It looks really bad, here is a screenshot:

I'd like to dialog windows / boxes to have a similar look the the rest of my DE (XFCE 4.10). The theme is Greybird and the icons are the AwOken icons IIRC.

Does anyone have any clue what to do to improve the look?

What's the problem?  "Bad" is highly subjective - and there is nothing obvious wrong.  It looks fine to me.

If you say what you want to change, you may be able to get help.

Oh, shoot, you are right, sorry. I forgot to mention the following which I'll also add to the op:

Re: Texmaker GUI looks really bad :(

That's a step in the right direction - but what is your DE?

Texmaker uses qt.  If you have a gtk based DE, you'll need to look into the tool(s) to get qt to use gtk's configuration.  There is a good wiki page on this.

You could try to enable the "classic" look in Options->Design

Oh, I forgot something again?? Honestly thought that Greybird was self-evident for XFCE. Not that I couldn't be wrong, it's just I only heard of Greybird in relation to XFCE.
But I'm not sure what to make of the wiki page. Should I build I custom GTK profile for Texmaker to achieve a "better" look?

Then the whole program looks similar to the "Open..." box. hmm

Re: Texmaker GUI looks really bad :(

Sorry, I don't use greybird, so I didn't recognize what toolkit that would be for.  XFCE uses gtk, but texmaker uses qt.  This is why the theme(s) you select for xfce have not been (fully) applied to texmaker.

Here is the wiki page that should get you on the right path.

I suspect prograndy's suggestion will also be helpful: that makes everything follow the same theme, then all you need to do is get it to follow your gtk theme rather than a qt one.

Re: Texmaker GUI looks really bad :(

Alright, so I experienced some difficulties due to the differencies from the Wiki, but I found the entries.

  • Started

    dconf-editor
  • The path to the entries icon-theme,gtk-theme and say cursor-theme is
    1. org
    2. gnome
    3. desktop
    4. interface

  • Still looks the same. sad
