Jessie: https://ibb.co/ehxwNm

Jessie still looking better/more modern, or is that the intended/expected look for Stretch?

What is controlling the look of the menu tabs in the screenshots above? In Jessie the top corners of the menus are rounded, in Stretch they are rectangular, at least for some applications.
Also the colors: many panels in Stretch are more brownish, while in Jessy they had a more neutral grey tone. Check the bottom panel of VLC (where you control sound volume) in above screenshots.

Can the above properties be changed by configuration; or do I have to recompile Gnome/GTK?

Thanks

Get Qt 5 applications to match Gtk themes in a Gtk 3 desktop? Try installing qt5-style-plugins and creating an /etc/X11/Xsession.d/98qtconfig file with the contents
Code: Select all
export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2
export QT_PLATFORMTHEME=gtk2
export QT_PLATFORM_PLUGIN=gtk2

:lol: Acronyms drive me nuts. Time and again someone posts a string of letters that I have to enter into a search engine in order to discover what is meant. Acronyms are convenient but they can be more problem than solution.

Adding

export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE=GTK+


to ~/.profile works for me under Jessie. I also have
Code: Select all
[Qt]
style=GTK+
font="Sans Serif,14,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0"

added to ~/.config/Trolltech.conf
Debian oldstable, twm, yad, stalonetray

Thanks. I tried it but it does not help.

This has no effect. At least none I noticed. I guess it was already the default.

This completely breaks layout under Stretch. VLC looks like junk (black menus and panels, no gaps between menus etc.). I fell back to "directly after installation" snapshot in my VM to make sure it is not related to the Vertex theme I am using, but same result.
