Bug Description

Since 14.10 QT doesn't use gtk icon theme. Moreover by default they do not use gtk style, but it is fixable. But I can't make them to use GTK ICON THEME. In 14.04 everything is good.

Create (or modify) ~/.kde/share/config/kdeglobals so that it contains e.g.:


You might need to clear the icons cache afterwards:
rm /var/tmp/kdecache-$USER/icon-cache.kcache

Yes it does. All kde/qt apps I use (amarok, digikam, k3b, audex) use the correct icon theme.
Make sure, that the theme name you write into kdeglobals concur with the folder name of the icon theme. For xubuntu icon themes are stored under "/usr/share/icons". And clear the cache file after you've changed the theme name.
