After I compiled KDE 3.5.4 (previous was 3.5.3), antialiasing in fonts has vanished. Any idea what might be wrong here?

Yep, I'm experiencing some problems with KDE 3.5.4 as well. Not sure what the cause is yet, I'll look into it and get back to you when I have a solution.

First off let me say thanks for this. I use Eclipse a lot so this engine is great. I've been using the Domino theme lately, and it has a small problems. The tops and bottoms of the scrollbar are screwed up. It looks like it can't find a pixmap, or something along those lines. Any idea how to fix that?

Thanks, I've confirmed this bug and added it to the freedesktop bug tracker so I don't forget about it:

After compiling and installing, the "GTK Styles and Fonts" option appears twice in the Control Center menu list.

'make install' installs /usr/share/applications/kcmgtk-xdg.desktop and /usr/share/applnk/Settings/LookNFeel/kcmgtk.desktop, which are both shown in Control Center. Removing any which one of these solves the problem.

I am using KDE 3.5.3.

I wish there was something opposite as there are many more cool style engines in GTK than in QT.

wow.
I cant even begin to tell you how much of a differnce this makes for some reason. I know everyone bitches about eye candy, but my desktop just 'feels' better now. All my apps have a common theme now. People look over my shoulder in the HUB and go "whats that?", meaning, "whoa thats cool, and i can tell its not windows". I just wanted to share my appreciation.
I couldnt find any bugs yet either btw.

I like this theme. You did a really nice job, but there is a problem with programs which use wxWidgets (as I understood), like pdAdmin3 or aMule. When I'm starting pgAdmin3 (for example) the follow messages appear:

QPixmap: Invalid pixmap parameters
QPainter::begin: Cannot paint null pixmap
QPainter::setPen: Will be reset by begin()
QPainter::setBrush: Will be reset by begin()
QPainter::setBrush: Will be reset by begin()
QPainter::setPen: Will be reset by begin()
QPainter::setPen: Will be reset by begin()
QPainter::setPen: Will be reset by begin()
Segmentation fault

...and program is crashing.

GTK-QT engine allows to use the same style in GTK+ apps as in QT/KDE apps. Almost all features of a KDE/QT theme is supported (at least the only difference I noticed so far is the lack of semi-transparent menus in GTK apps).

It's mostly useful if your main desktop environment is KDE (or maybe other QT-based DE but I'm not aware of such) and you wish to have consistent look across your desktop, regardless of what widget set is used in a particular application.

In order to use it, you should use "Qt" style for GTK apps. The easiest way to achieve this is to use one of available GTK configurators (say, the control center from GNOME), or just put the follwoing line into your ~/.gtkrc-2.0:

....
gtk-theme-name = "Qt"
....

Good luck

I have one small problem when runing Sylpheed-Claws GTK2 under KDE 3.4.1, with the GTK-QT engine: the blue color in the folder list is gone, folders are only black. This makes it hard to find new messages :\

Any ideas?

You should apply the follwoing patch. While it's not completely correct (the menu transparency is not supported) it allows one to have visible menus :-)

This seems to fix at least VLC, but it doesn't fully fix Streamtuner yet for example.
