#17218 closed defect (wontfix)

Virtualbox 5.2 does not honor the user's Qt theme

Reported by: roland651 Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 5.2.0
Keywords: Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Linux


Under Ubuntu 16.04, VirtualBox version 5.1 makes use of the user's custom Qt theme but version 5.2 always uses the default Fusion theme, whatever the user's theme.

See attached screenshots.

Note that other Qt5 apps do not have this problem.

Your system doesn't have minimum Qt version required for our GUI to work, so our fallback Qt library is used instead. Unfortunately it is not integrated with host system so it doesn't pick up theme, fonts, and other custom settings.

This forum thread may have a bit more details.

OK, I understand. I'll wait the new Ubuntu LTS version next year, hoping the issue will disappear.
