If I select '* Use my KDE style GTK applications' from kcontrol on the
KDE, KDE wrote as follows into '~/.gtkrc';
;; ~/.gtkrc-2.0 begin
# This file was written by KDE
# You can edit it in the KDE control center, under "GTK Styles and Fonts"
The Gnome could not wake up with this '~/.gtkrc-2.0' which have
'include' and 'gtk-theme-name' value including theme of "Qt".
But if I select '* Use another style' from kcontrol, 'include' and
'gtk-theme-name' values are different, then looks like OK for Gnome.
I must learn how to write my '~/.gtkrc-2.0' for doing for;
'~/.gtkrc-2.0' should be selectable from WindowManagers like
alternatives, or could switch by environment variables.
But looking like it would need;
a) The Gnome could wake up although '~/.gtkrc-2.0' have 'include' or
(and) 'gtk-theme-name' values include "Qt".
b) Kcontrol shows to users some cautions or should not set 'include'
or(and) 'gtk-theme-name' values as "Qt" when there is possibility
of users using Gnome.
