VastOne has worked very hard to create this beautiful fluxbox based environment. But when you open SMPlayer it doesn't blend with the look of Vsido. It looks kind of ugly. Why it does look different? Because it is built using Qt toolkit instead of Gtk toolkit. Other applications built using Qt will also look out of place in Vsido.
Solution? Very easy. Open your favourite text editor and add following,
Code: [Select]
[Qt]

style=GTK
Save this file as 'Trolltech.conf' in the '~/.config' directory. Chances are that the file already exists. If so just overwrite it when prompted. Logout and log back in. Now open SMPlayer and it will look exactly like the rest of the applications.
VastOne can add this 'Trolltech.conf' in '/etc/skel/.config' of the next Vsido iso and users won't have to do this manually.
Cheers!!!
