Do you have a RedHad 7 or 8 system and did you use the apt KDE3 packages
from apt.unl.edu to upgrade by any chance?
If so, you are running into the same problem I had: the maintainer for
those new KDE3 package there decided to move away from the RedHat
Bluecurve and make KDE again more like the original.
It was explained to me that this has to do with the fact that normaly
KDE and other apps (eg GTk/Gnome apps) do NOT look the same. Only using
similar themes for boths systems (KDE/GTk) would make them look the
same. This is what RedHat has done with Bluecurve. But you could also
install Keramik and Geramik and have more or less the same effect.
So the fact is that what you and I see as normal (all apps look the
same) actually is not normal at all!
The maintainer of the apt KDE3 packages has told me that he'll probably
set Bluecurve as the default theme again and just make it easy to change
to other ones if you want. For now you can do this to get the Bluecurve
apt-get install kde-defaults-bluecurve
Hope this helps,
