Unfortunately, this did not solve the problem in this case. Indeed, it's a 
little more subtle: QtCurve's default appearance is an oxygen-like style. 
However, it can be customized in almost any way you can imagine. I prefer to 
use a style more acqua-like. GTK applications *are* using QtCurve, but with 
its default oxygen-like style instead of my customized acqua-like style. 
Therefore, GTK applications look completely alien in my desktop KDE. This also 
happens if I set up QtCurve to use any of its provided preset settings. Right 
now, the only way I'm able to make GTK and KDE applications look the same with 
QtCurve is using its default oxygen-like appearance.
I've filled a bug about this in Ubuntu's launchpad.

Thanks for your help,
