    i am stuck at this problem

  • Can anybody help me to resolve this issue?

  • I have the same problem. I am using RHEL 5.10 and Qt 4.8.5. With help from Qt support, we finally came up with a couple of workarounds yesterday.

    1. Run the KDE desktop instead of gnome
    2. Keep using the gnome desktop but run the program with the additional option "-style cleanworks", or any style other than gtk.

    RHEL5 is not a supported platform for Qt 4.8, so, they are not willing to look for a code change, but at least they did help find these workarounds.
