How to change the QT theme without KDE?

I use fluxbox and just configured my fluxbox and GTK themes to match wink However, Krusader doesn't match at all with KDE's default theme... How do I change it without installing KDE? It's gotta be possible to do it in kdeglobals, but again, I can't find any documentation on this...
Ubuntu has the qt3-qtconfig and qt4-qtconfig packages, but it seems like there are no sources or anything... Here is the link to the those packages for Debian/Ubuntu, maybe someone is kind enough to "port" them to Arch?

qtconfig is part of qt and let you change the theme

Oh yeah, this one i got... wink
But qtconfig is for qt4, krusader uses qt3...

EDIT: I have qt3-enhanced from kdemod-legacy

I do not know about kdemod, but for standard qt3 the configurator is /opt/qt/bin/qt3config

Re: How to change the QT theme without KDE?

Oh, you are right, but it's kinda strange - I can't change themes there or anything - it's very different from the qt3-qtconfig from Ubuntu. All the stuff I can change, only affects qtconfig itself and qt's sdk.
It seems, like I may need to change stuff manually in the text configuration files... If I only knew, where to put the themes and what to change...

Re: How to change the QT theme without KDE?

Both of them work for me. The change of the theme is immediate only for qtconfig itself, but once you have saved your choice in qtconfig and restarted the other app, then the theme changes there too.

Anyway the config file is ~/.qt/qtrc and I see a Style line in it

You can (also) get qgtkstyle-svn from the AUR and then set the style in qtconfig to GTK, then QT apps will match whatever your GTK style is.

Can you give me your qtrc? Don't have a .qt dir...

Wow, works like charm. Way better that qtcurve, thanks for the advice. Too bad, it's only for qt4... Well, maybe I'll think about migrating to kde4-krusader and -ktorrent. Though I totally hated them, as I tried Ubuntu 8.10... Mostly for ugliness, but also for some strange interdace possibility reduction. Like drag-and-dropping in tabs in krusader, just didn't work anymore...

well, just did. and guess what - that damn shite doesn't work there, as apparently kde4 also has it's own styles, which override everything...
damn, do i hate kde!

EDIT: well, after screwing a little with system-settings, gtk-chtheme and gimp (grabbing the right colors), kde-stuff still looks pretty ugly, but at least the color scheme matches...
