GTK apps look 'n' feel

Hi Glenn,

It looks to me like the app you're running is running as root (or via
kdesudo), in which case yes it will look like that since the GTK look and
feel only applies to apps running as the current user.

You used to be able to fix this by symlinking some appropriate directories
into /root... but I don't know if this still works. Google may help but if I
were you I'd just live with it.
