Bug#506814: phonon 4.2.0-2 can cause Qt widget problems
It looks like the fix for #498573 created another bug.
Compile Qt's musicplayer:
Install KDE4, but run musicplayer in a non-KDE environment. The player
will be able to find the Phonon plugins, but it will also use KDE's
oxygen style, KDE's file dialog, and the menu and toolbar text will be
invisible. You can still click on the areas though.
I downgraded to 4.2.0-1 and was able to duplicate this by adding
/usr/lib/kde4/plugins to QT_PLUGIN_PATH. So it looks like Qt needs to
be more selective about which plugins it has access to when it's running
in a non-KDE environment.
I tried Vincent's suggestion about a symlink just for phonon_backend.
That gets me audio and Qt's normal widget behavior.
