Apper currently ships with a downstream hack (apper-0.9.2-style.patch)
that makes it refuse to use the systemwide Qt widget style. This was done
to workaround a harmless, purely cosmetic glitch (bug #1209017). But it
causes a much worse cosmetic glitch: the application looks just completely
off. Just compare the big progress bar on a stock Fedora 24 installation
(where Oxygen is not available, and thus Cleanlooks is used) with a Breeze
progress bar. It just looks completely wrong.
Please see the discussion at:
I was asked to bring this to the mailing list, so I am doing that hereby.
The idea here is that if there's a consensus by the kde-sig to remove this
hack, I will do so.
My own personal opinion is that the current hack is justified, and that this
workaround's advantages outweigh it's disadvantages.
In the meantime, I've agreed to implement and additional feature to the
workaround patch that allows users to circumvent the hack and use the
default (breeze) theme anyway.
