It looks like when ubuntu-lowfat settings were pulled in the default
kwin style and widget style was changed to the old KDE3 looking
This is probably less tested than Oxygen, and will probably have less
continuity with GTK+ applications. I also read here
they're removing it from the default Qt5 base install.
Maybe we should change this default back to Oxygen (the default for
the KDE4 distribution). It's also the default in practically every
distribution that ships KDE, so that means it's going to be better
tested, especially with third party applications, where those
unfortunate rendering bugs often crop up.
As silly as it sounds, it might also turn people off using Whonix if
it is ugly, especially if they've come from a recent version of
Windows or MacOSX.
We can easily accomplish this change by changing the value PluginLib
in kwinrc (this is for the window border decoration)
We would also need to change the WidgetStyle in kdeglobals
We should also create a file that is put in ~/.kde/share/config/gtkrc
and one in ~/.kde/share/config/gtkrc-2.0 which contains:
gtk-alternative-button-order = 1
This way new users won't have to do anything to make it look proper again.
