This happens also for the Qt theme Polymer. Deleting ~/.qt and executing /opt/qt/bin/qtconfig gives:

[neil@aurora ~]$ rm -Rf .qt
[neil@aurora ~]$ /opt/qt/bin/qtconfig
Conflict in /opt/qt/plugins/styles/
Plugin uses incompatible Qt library!
expected build key "i686 Linux g++-3.* full-config", got "i686 Linux g++-4 full-config".

While I was trying to recompile Domino to get it working again I got an error message saying that the theme can be loaded only by the version of qt for which the theme is built compiled with the same compiler (sorry I don't paste the entire message, but I've lost it). So i tried downgrading the qt3 package back to 3.5.6-1 and voila! Themes are working again.

I just rebuilt polymer against the updated Qt package and it works again.

I recompiled my kde themes too which works for qinx, qtcurve and serenity but not for comix. Not so much bad in handling it but this is a little bit strange because both, qt and kdelibs, seems only to be rebuilt for other reasons without changes inside.

Pitching in a me too here. My KDE3 themes disappeared after upgrading qt3 and kdelib.

Downgrading qt3 (3.3.8-7 -> 3.3.8-6.1) and kdelib (3.5.9-2 ->3.5.9-1) back to previous versions worked for me.

Just make sure you have kdelibs 3.5.9-2, qt3 3.3.8-7 [and qtcurve-kde3 0.58.0-2] installed. Those should work with each other. This problems seems to be an ABI incompatibility by gcc 4.3. If you use any custom theme, just recompile them.

Sorry if I'm wrong to re-open this bug.
But I think gtk-qt-engine needs to be rebuilt too.
Comment by Matthias Dienstbier (fs4000) - Thursday, 27 March 2008, 22:46 GMT
I don't have any problems with it.
Comment by Ondřej Konečný (andrew9888) - Sunday, 30 March 2008, 14:33 GMT
After kdelibs upgrade I was able to recompile my themes and got them working again. So the bug is solved for me.
Comment by crc32 (crc64) - Wednesday, 02 April 2008, 10:26 GMT
Yes, sorry my bad. There's no problem with gtk-qt-engine. It was one of the themes that need to be rebuilt.

I was the one who requested to reopen this bug. So, please close this bug if there isn't any other issues.
