That's really awesome. Can you please tell me where did you get the wallpaper and what are these icons and what font and where did you get that kicker background and how did you make that shadow under the kicker?

;)

Thanks! - Jun 23 2006
That's the weirdest thing. That line in qtrc originally said:

font=DejaVu Sans,9,-1,5,25,0,0,0,0,0

I changed 25 to 50 and voila! Font is perfect and normal in all apps! :)

I also removed the font lines from .gtkrc-2.0 and now QtCurve handles everything and all is OK.

I'm just surprised how did the '25' get there (KDE control center's font chooser only has Light/Regular/Bold thickness for this font and these result in 50/50/75)

and also, shouldn't the setting in qtrc affect Qt apps also (or perhaps, even more so than GTK apps)?

So sorry for the bother, it turned out to be my fault after all. Thanks for the help! - Jun 20 2006
Okay editing the userContent.css was not such a good idea, because it enforced normal font-weight to some pages. But without it, the default font in HTML forms and in pages that don't define is ExtraLight.

So the question still remains: why does the system like ExtraLight fonts so much with QtCurve? - Jun 20 2006
I did as you suggest, and left only the "include" line uncommented. Now all GTK2 apps suffer from this problem :(

So I uncommented these lines (they were there originally):

style "user-font"
{
font_name="DejaVu Sans 9"
}
widget_class "*" style "user-font"

Now GVim looks fine, but Firefox still uses the ExtraLight font. Actually Firefox doesn't care about the "user-font" setting.

--------- last minute update --------

I added this to my userChrome.css (after the QtCurve's @import):

* { font-weight: normal !important; }

And this solves the problem for the GUI. I also created a userContent.css with the same line, because the Firefox's default error pages suffered from the same problem.

However, it's still weird how the system enforces the ExtraLight font.

Anyway, now I can use QtCurve in peace :) Great job with the theme! - Jun 20 2006
I've got a strange problem with Firefox and QtCurve 0.38: the gui font in Firefox is thinner/greyer than rest of the system. It's only Firefox and doesn't apply to other GTK2 apps (like GVim).
This behaviour makes me use QtCurve for QT only and Clearlooks for GTK2 apps.

I believe it's using DejaVuSans-ExtraLight instead of the default DejaVuSans (I did a strace while running firefox and it gave me this idea).

It looks like this:

(the Konqueror's look in the screenshot is the default and preferred)

I'm using Kubuntu 6.06, not using "my KDE style in GTK applications". I am however using "my KDE font in GTK applications" - whenever I switch this option it returns back to the previous state (weird).

What can I do about it? - Jun 19 2006
