[SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

I have a rather weird problem with KDE.

Whenever I go to System Settings to select a widget style, the theme is changed successfully. When I open another app, the theme reverts to a GTK-like oxygen theme. I do not get any errors and cannot find anything in the terminal output. How to fix?

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

I would start by trying the following:

First: try removing ~/.kde4/cache   (the actual folder name will be cache-<yourhostname>) then restart and see if the problem persists.

Second: try renaming/removing ~/.kde4/share/config/kdeglobals, remove the cache as before, then restart and see if the problem persists.

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

Hmmmm... That didn't work. No matter what I do, it always reverts back to the "GTK+ Style" widget theme, even though it says "Oxygen".

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

Is Oxygen installed?

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

I think. I can select it in System Settings and it works until a new app is opened. What is the package?

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

KDE User here, your issue is a weird one. Do you have either one of these packages oxygen-gtk3, oxygen-gtk2 and kde-gtk-config installed ?

And when you say "open another app", I'm assuming it's a qt app and not a gtk one?

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

Yes, a Qt app. And yes, I have all of those packages.

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

Try deleting your /var/tmp/kdecache-'yourusername' folder, might reset your desktop settings but it's worth trying

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

Do you have kdebase-workspace and oxygen-icons installed? (Does the theme require the icons? If not, ignore the last bit.)

Yes. I tried reinstalling both, but still no success... I don't know what's going on!

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

Which app?

Have you looked in the logs for errors? journalctl, maybe, or X's log or ~/.xsession-errors...

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

Yes. There are none. At this point, this is driving me insane!

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

Change GUI style in qtconfig (to "Desktop Settings" or a style of your choice).

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

Phew Sleepy Rabbit thanks for the solution  and thanks John Smith for the clear title. I just had this happen today and was freaking out on my config and rming things all over ~/.kde4/. This appears to be related to kde-gtk-config as I have that package also.

Re: [SOLVED] KDE Widget Style not working

I am aware that this is a major bump, but;
I just had this same issue, and had to resolve to the same solution, but qtconfig is not present in Plasma 5, rather I had to use qt5ct

TL;DR Use qt5ct instead of qtconfig on plasma5.
