Bug Description

After upgrading to 14.10 some apps are displaying some really old looking themes. System is set to greybird.

See attachment for details.

Programs affected:

 - Lyx
 - KeepassX

This also happens during right after login: xfce4-panel is all grey and what not, eventually switching to greybird, however (after 5s or so).

Hm. It looks lie the problem is with qt4 applications. Not sure about the flashing of light grey theme while booting, though.

install qt4-qtconfig and set gui style to gtk+ for the apps

I sometimes see *unstyled* apps if apps are open when I shutdown, don't see it while booting

Does the "visual glitch" right after login affect other user accounts or the guest session? The GTK+ theme will be applied once xfsettingsd has been started by the session manager. Therefore, clearing the session cache may resolve the problem (Settings Manager > Sessions and Startup > Session).

Doesn't happen with the guest account. Clearing the session cache doesn't work.

Maybe there's some really old still lying around? Not sure how to find it and remove it.
