Hi Greg,

VLC seems to be unaffected on my system and the qt4-tqt-theme-engine 
package isn't installed, so that at least is one problem I don't have.

As far as I can tell the only gtk "engine" package I have installed is 
the gtk2-theme-engines packages which contains the "default" GTK+ 2.0

Hi Nigel,

I've installed the equivalent Mageia murrine packages, but the 
"appearance/gtk styles and fonts" option in the TDE control centre is 
missing on my system and I've not been able to identify what I need to 
install to make this option available.

I do have the gtk-chtheme tool installed, but TDE seems to be overriding 
the choice made with this tool.

Thanks again, Tim W
