View Full Version : [kubuntu] Default applications don't use windows theme

September 22nd, 2008, 09:20 AM
Hi, all:

I'm using a theme I downloaded in System Settings "zvonZion". When I launch an app from the app launcher or a given icon in quick launcher, the window opens fine and uses the theme. When I try to open a window by launching a file (like double-clicking on an .avi file), the theme isn't used by the window; it's a boring beige color that's probably the default something or other. In essence, any time I'm relying on an app being launched because it's the default application for that kind of file (VLC for .avi, Kate for .txt, etc...), the theme isn't applied. Why might this be happening?

I'm using Kubuntu 8.04 and KDE 4.1.1.
