ProTip: Strip that ugly default theme off Skype

I was pleased to discover that Skype can be made to use the GTK theme.  Normally it has a hideous default theme that never goes with my desktop, but if I run it with

--disable-cleanlooks

as a command line argument, it will blend in quite nicely.

Also seems to fix the annoying bug where the background of Skype's tray icon would stick if you dragged a window over it.

I'll give you an image

You can fix more apps with QtConfig

opera (As long as you have a qt4 version)
vlc
skype
and many apps...

Open QtConfig and set Appearance to GTK+ then File > Save.
