This most likely means that Qt does not recognize your desktop as needing GTK+
integration. Can you please check what is the value of XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP
environment variable on your system?

Also, please keep in mind that the GTK+ style will be removed in Qt 5.7,
and the recommended alternative is using custom themes like Adwaita-Qt.
