Review request for kdelibs and Olivier Goffart.


Updated to check whether we run in a KDE session. Applied the same change to font settings.

Summary (updated)

When a KDE application is running on GNOME it looks odd right now because it does not use the GNOME palette and fonts, contrary to Qt-only applications. Attached patch fixes this by relying on the platform plugin to set the correct palette and fonts if we are not running in a full KDE session.

Patch was suggested by Olivier Goffart.

Diffs (updated)

  kdeui/kernel/kglobalsettings.cpp 1a497c7 


Testing (updated)

# On KDE
- Run kwrite on KDE => KDE palette and fonts
- Change palette and fonts from System Settings => kwrite updates itself correctly

- Run kwrite on GNOME => GNOME palette and fonts
- Change palette and fonts from GNOME Tweak Tool => palette gets applied, font does not for now
