Buttons without selected state with Breeze-theme on KDE

If you are using a recent KDE version, e.g. with openSuSE Leap 42.2, you will notice that some toolbar buttons don’t show a selected (or toggled) state.

Crash on KDE

If SmartGit, SmartSVN or SmartSynchronize crashes for you on dialogs where (on other platforms) comboboxes are visible, please check whether the oxygen-gtk style is selected. It is reported to be extremely buggy and better should be replaced with either Adwaita or Clearlooks-Phenix:

  1.  Open the System Settings
    KDE: System Settings
  2. Select the Application Appearance
    kde2
  3. On the GTK+ Appearance page select, e.g. Adwaita
    kde3
