How to get rid of the 'greyness' that appears in a lot of windows

I'm using Arch X64 with Awesome window manager (stand-alone)
I'm experiencing some visual problems, that most windows I open, tend to have a greyish kinda theme.
Although I have lxappearance and I have a lot of themes, even if I change those, that greyness just, don't go away.
A picture could say it all: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?eeot413jzg01xcd

How can I get this fixed (get rid of that grey)?

Thanks!

VLC is a qt app (and I think Dolphin is too). Lxappearance is a "Feature-rich GTK+ theme switcher".

@WorMzy: I guess this also explains, why the icons sets in lxappearance didn't apply as well to file managers' icons (Like Dolphin and pcmanfm), right? I mean, if I could fix that, this would be fixed as well...?

I think you have another problem with pcmanfm -- that's a gtk2 app, and (as far as I know) that should honour the changes you make in lxappearance. Sort out your general qt/gtk problem first, then search for topics regarding pcmanfs' misbehaviour. Chances are, someone else has encountered the same problem you're having, and found a solution.

Thanks a loT! After so much fiddling and downloading lots of stuff, I managed to make my QTs like my GTKs, using gtconfig. Now I just change the themes with lxappearance, and they will change everywhere smile)
