An easy way to apply Qstylesheets

Mon May 24, 2010 6:22 pm
I'd like to see an option to apply a qstylesheet (qss) to an application or globally. These would be applied on top of qtcurve, oxygen, bespin etc.
Currently I have to replace the runner for each app in usr/bin to get it to run every time, and that will obviously be overwritten whenever the app is updated.

Why do i want qss? I've experience with every method to theme KDE (other than coding one in c++), qtcurve, quantumstyle and bespin. While they're all very good at what they do; none comes close to what's possible with qss, and it's very unlikely they ever will.

This... is actually one of the best theme-related suggestions I've seen.

This could allow for some other goodies, as well:
1. availability in, "Get new widget themes" and, "Get new window decorations";
2. a QSS-based theme creator so artists can make widget themes easily.

wow, really wow.
I had no idea that that was possible.
This would solve a lack of new themes and overpopulation of remixes, qt curve and bespin variations :)

This is one of those ideas that just feels like it should have always been painfully obvious. ++

Just for information. There is already a bugreport which is marked with WONTFIX.
Nevertheless an implementation would be great.

If it is marked wontfix there we have to do the same here.

The issue is technical rather than functional, it seems.

Some good points are raised in the bug report: it seems that QSS displays some unpredictable behaviour and is poorly documented, especially in how individual widgets may be themed and how sub-classed widgets will be affected by themes, if at all.

Still, I would certainly love to see these issues fixed and this idea reconsidered some time.

If the poor documentation of qss is the biggest problem, than maybe someone which is involed in the problematic can contact QT. They should be interested, because KDE is the figurehead for QT technologie.

I still can't figure out why this hadn't implemented by default yet. I guess Razor-Qt is supporting CSS-theming by things like <a href="http://jonian.deviantart.com/art/Ambiance-for-Razor-Qt-DE-275682915">this</a>, there had been 3 years since that bug report and I don't believe things for QSS are the same. Now is late.
