I know, I just wanted to tell how it looks without making a screen shot.

It is available, and I added some print statements in the __init__.py in
KdeQt so I am pretty sure that KdeQt is used.

qtconfig is set to unknown when started, but I can switch to my kde
style "lipstick". Also qtconfig looks like any other KDE app I have,
i.e. it uses the lipstick style.

Ah, now I got it: PyQt seems to be at fault here. It's examples are
also ugly. It's using the Windows style I think - at least it looks
pretty much like that. 

This is PyQt 3.15 in Python 2.3, latest snapshot just finished and it's
the same there.

I have Debian sid here.


PS: latest sip-snapshot indeed fixes eric3 with PyQt snapshot and Python
