The same thing as been reported here feew weeks ago.

I thing it's a matter of KDE when used in Gnome environment, but I
couldn't which component is responsible (KDE or Gnome).

I use Digikam with Ubuntu 10.10, and if I install Kubuntu packet, and
launch a true KDE session, the theme problem doesn't appear.

The only way I found to get a "correct" aspect is to use a more greyed
theme under Ubuntu, in this manner, there's less contrast in the KDE
application interface, and it's less noticeable, but it's not a real

Without this, i get this with the default Ubuntu 10.10 theme.
