Description gnomek 2019-03-04 13:05:26 UTC
I'd like to be able to apply qtcurve properly.

I tried 

GTK2_RC_FILES=/usr/share/themes/QtCurve/gtk-2.0/gtkrc libreoffice --writer

but it doesn't do anything.

I start this way another gtk program: cherrytree with success, I mean it has qtcurve look.

It would be great if something like this was possible in:

export SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=qtcurve

Why I want this? Because qtcurve has lots of great settings. For example I can easily set scrollbar width. 

I use Linux with Plasma 5 desktop and breeze-dark theme and scrollbar is very narrow and it doesn't touch window edge. 

With qtcurve I would be able to solve it quickly and independently from KDE/Plasma or gtk themes limitations.

Operating System: Manjaro Linux 
KDE Plasma Version: 5.15.1
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.55.0
Qt Version: 5.12.1
Kernel Version: 4.20.11-1-MANJARO
OS Type: 64-bit

I would like to point out that for me it is more usability problem than "good look" problem (although I would love to be able to apply qtcurve to LO).

The problem that mouse can't touch scrollbar is caused by fat window frame, or maybe it is a problem of specific vcl - gtk or gtk3-kde5 or qt5. But I changed scrollbar width as showed here

and mouse still doesn't touch scrollbar.

Feel free to assign this to appropriate category of bugs. Tell me if I need to fill separate bug report for window edge or theme related bug. I haven't done this yet because I don't know what is the specific cause of the problem.

I renamed the bug because in LO 6.2 qtcurve is applied with 

So the problem is with Breeze-dark theme on Plasma 5, with LO

I found out that proper place to report it is breeze-gtk on kde bugs.
