Force Skype to use qt4 theme

I use skype for chatting and online talk with my friends and family back home. However, every time I use skype I hate that even though it is a qt4 app (now), it still does not honour my kde settings.

So, I did some research (read googling) and found out the following way would easily solve the problem.

When starting skype, just use the switch "--disable-cleanlook" and it should pick up the theme which is selected in the kde4 settings. Or if you want to use a particular style then you can pass the theme name as "--style .

skype --disable-cleanlooks

Hope it helps some one... enjoi...
