Notify app style change

  • Hi all,

    I'm writing a themable style engine (QStyle derived). This style comes with a custom app that allows to tweak it. I'd like to notify all Qt apps of style/config changes when I press "apply" button on my app.

    I searched a lot and all I can find is the following code from KDE that does not work:

    void ThemeManagerUI::notifyConfigurationChange()
      qDebug() << "notifyConfigurationChange()";
      QByteArray stamp;
      QDataStream s(&stamp, QIODevice::WriteOnly);
      s << QDateTime::currentDateTime();
      QByteArray settings_atom_name("_QT_SETTINGS_TIMESTAMP_");
      settings_atom_name += XDisplayString(QX11Info::display());
      xcb_connection_t *xcb_conn = QX11Info::connection();
      xcb_intern_atom_cookie_t cookie = xcb_intern_atom(xcb_conn, false, settings_atom_name.size(), settings_atom_name.constData());
      xcb_intern_atom_reply_t *reply = xcb_intern_atom_reply(xcb_conn, cookie, 0);
      xcb_atom_t atom = reply->atom;
      xcb_change_property(xcb_conn, XCB_PROP_MODE_REPLACE, QX11Info::appRootWindow(), atom, XCB_ATOM_ATOM,
                          8, stamp.size(), (const void *)stamp.constData());
      //XChangeProperty(QX11Info::display(), QX11Info::appRootWindow(0),
                      //PropModeReplace, (unsigned char *), stamp.size());

    This code is from KDE KStyle KCM module but I have no luck. Do you have any idea ?

    Thank you

    I'd recommend contacting the KDE folks directly about that matter.
