Hello,

I do really enjoy leaving the big and greasy huge KDE/Gnome environment.
OpenBox is really easy to configure and do the job, and just the job I asked for.

However, two things could be improved, and I would request your help here:

a.) I just won't have consitency in themes/window/colors: of course I added both Qt/KDE and GTK/Gnome in my USE, but I just can't have two windows that even look similar in their aspect..it is a bit of a hugly stack of different glued pieces of (different) puzzle together.
Is that the price/cost of using a lightweight windows manager? :(

b.) doing weekly emerge update in a ~amd64 @world, I got suprises from time to time...the latest is that DBus seems now all broken: I just can't shoot Docky anymore:
Code:
 $ docky
[Info  09:19:51.977] Docky version: 2.1.4 Release
[Info  09:19:51.981] Kernel version: 3.8.7.0
[Info  09:19:51.981] CLR version: 4.0.30319.1
[Fatal 09:19:52.061] DBus could not be found and is required by Docky. Exiting.

Is there a recent change that I should take care?
Is my config/autostart to be changed ?
It was just OK "before".... :roll:


Sorry for this dual-post, maybe I should have split, but I can't help but save topics.

cheers,
Ben

a) gtk+ and Qt apps always will look different, as long as you don't use themes that look the same (like oxygen + oxygen-gtk or qtcurve)
You may want to change your theme using qtconfig and gtk-chtheme.

b) Probably you had an update of glib recently. Try with rebuilding dbus-glib.

I run lxde on top of openbox, it gives me a (more or less) consistent look without the bloat of kde or gnome.

This is not about installing kde or gnome to make apps look similar but to make apps using different toolkits look similar (so the other way around):
I use qpdfview (Qt4) for reading pdfs and gimp (gtk+-2) for image processing. Those apps will always look different as they use different toolkits with different theming approaches/apis/... In order to make those apps (you don't want to replace!) look similar you have to use themes (for Qt4 and gtk+-2) looking similar.
And your setup (lxde+openbox) won't magically make that happen...

Meaning you don't even USE-flag them? (or even unUSE-flag them?!?)

I do shut off these
Code:
-kde -gnome -libnotify -pam -consolekit -policykit -systemd -udisks
in my make.conf file

And don't try and run kde or gnome programs.

Wasn't trying to imply that it would. Yes I do use themes.

One can even do that with openbox by itself, http://box-look.org/ is a start
