I use a number of gtk+ apps and have gtk2 installed, but no gtk3 and no
Among the gtk apps I use are firefox (browser), claws-mail (mail, feed-
reader), pan (nntp/news), and the gimp (image editor).
On the kde side, they replace konqueror as a browser (tho it's still
installed as an alternative browser), kmail for mail, akregator for
feeds, pan for news (from when I first switched to Linux, knode simply
sucks in comparison), and krita/kolourpaint (kolourpaint is still
installed and I use it, but it unfortunately doesn't deal with a full
transparency channel; krita does, but I found it unintuitive and poorly
documented compared to the gimp, and krita's dependencies were quite
heavy as well, so it's no longer installed).
The kde colorscheme settings have an option to use them for non-kde apps
as well, and with it checked gtk apps fit in well /enough/ for me. I'd
prefer to have actually workable qt-based or kde apps instead, but for
the above, the gtk-based options are clearly better, so that's what I'm
(For the browser, google's chrome isn't an option as I don't do
proprietary/servantware, and while chromium is freedomware, it's not
their main browser focus, chrome is. By contrast, Mozilla's main focus
is the freedomware firefox. Plus, firefox's extension ecosystem is much
more developed and mature. Noscript was one of the big reasons I
switched, and requestpolicy is another extension I'd be hard pressed to
do without now. AFAIK there's nothing even close to noscript's features
and proven workability over time, for chromium.)
