Package: kde-standard
Version: 5:77
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When "gtk2-engines-oxygen" package installed, GTK2 applications (like
"iceweasel" etc.) don't use GTK2 engines for look'n'feel like KDE apps.
I have found workaround -- to create symbolic link at home directory:

$ ln -s .gtkrc-2.0-kde .gtkrc-2.0

It's related to /usr/share/themes/oxygen-gtk/gtk-2.0/gtkrc file.

With this link GTK2-engines work fine (GTK2 apps looks like KDE ones).
I don't know why this is so, and I really don't know if this issue related to
KDE or Debian, but I think "user doesn't care" -- we need to
keep this feature easy to use, w/o doing some weird actions like this.

So there is an objective:
GTK2 engines must work at once if one of gtk2-engines-* package is installed.

Also there is propose (but it's optional) to add gtk2-engines-oxygen package
to kde-standard, kde-minimal and kde-full packages, because user uses KDE
usually wants to use GTK2 applications (iceweasel, gimp, icedove and many other
good GTK2 stuff).
