This answer is not fully canonical, but likely sufficient for basic understanding. In this answer, I intend to provide concise explanations based on actual experience in Debian-based distributions. Anyway, I have confirmed that the fonts settings in Debian doesn't take effect immediately for Qt applications in GTK+ environment. This is based on my finding ...

You could try a different method for font rendering all together. Infinality is a cool project that might fit your needs. Although I don't know the inner specifics of how the thing works, I can tell you that it works flawlessly on my 8.1 debian installation. Visit Debian Wiki on Infinality

It also looks like a mess to me. I'll share what I know, although it does not give a complete solution to the puzzle. for GUI software relying on GTK, the GTK widgets are configured in the toolkit config file, e.g. .gtkrc-2.0 Qt apps probably work the same way, with a .qtrc file of some sort more traditional X software is configured on a per-app basis in ...

Breeze themes for GTK (and therefore EMACS) are broken by today (2016-04-24). But there are many color-themes for emacs already. Try Whiteboard. It really fits in with Breeze. I didn't look for something to match Breeze-Dark though.

I can't comment on Vincenzo's answer, but I find his answer works best for me on KDE4. I've had to slightly modify the command though. For me it's: ps -u yourlogin e | grep -Eo 'dbus-daemon.*ADDRESS=unix:abstract=/tmp/dbus-[A-Za-z0-9]{10}' | tail -c35 Notice ADDRESS in capital letters.

Set QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME="qt5ct" andQT_PLUGIN_PATH=$HOME/.kde4/lib/kde4/plugins/:/usr/lib/kde4/plugins/ Use qt5ct to set a theme. I set it like that in my .xprofile: if [ "$XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP" = "i3" ]; then export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME="qt5ct" export QT_PLUGIN_PATH=$HOME/.kde4/lib/kde4/plugins/:/usr/lib/kde4/plugins/ fi

notify-send is simple, all you need to do is call it from your bash script like this notify-send 'some title' 'some message' You'll get nice little notification pupup on KDE.

I had similar problems and found this somewhat related bugtracker entry. There doesn't seem to be a convincing solution, I work around this by faking my desktop environment to be KDE. Give adding XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP=KDE to your .xprofile a try and see what happens.

According to some similar existing bugs on KDE forums, Xinerama can break kde-plasma5, so if you have Xinerama enabled in Xorg's config file (in /etc/X11/xorg.conf ) , try to disable it. It will be in the Section "ServerLayout" : Option "Xinerama" "1" So if you have the line like above, change the value to zero: Option "Xinerama" "0" Hope ...

Not sure what's up with the KDE4 control center... but a couple of other ways to accomplish it: If it's OK to do it system-wide (for all users), you can plop it in the Xorg configuration by (as root) creating the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/55-local-wacom.conf with the contents: Section "InputClass" Identifier "Wacom Left Handed" MatchDriver ...
