My work laptop (Lenovo X100e) choked and died during an update of
Ubuntu 12.04 on Friday morning, resulting in an installation that no
longer booted (root partition gone, kernel panic).
Decided to re-install it with Linux Mint 13 Mate edition, since the
Cinnamon edition was rendering too slow and quite sluggish. After a
couple of hours, I was up and running again.
Once again with a beautiful desktop, but with qt applications
(keepassx, skype, ...) looking hideous. Today, I found the solution:
The qt4 theme wasn't set to gtk+, but "Desktop settings". Doesn't seem
to handle gtk+3 for some reason.
