Here is the error message. I don't know if it is significant, but IMHO shouldn't happen.

 * package x11-themes/redhat-artwork-0.243-r1 NOT merged
 * Detected file collision(s):
 *      /usr/qt/3/etc/settings/qtrc
 * Searching all installed packages for file collisions...

I have a similar file on a few of my older systems:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 981 2006-11-02 01:54 /usr/qt/3/etc/settings/qtrc
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 27 2006-11-16 02:45 /usr/qt/3/etc/settings/qtrc

I suggest you delete it.

Valid bug this is....
Comment 3 Carsten Lohrke (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2008-05-20 22:49:54 UTC
addwrite clause as e.g. in kde.eclass is needed
Comment 4 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2009-01-05 12:07:32 UTC
I also have a related problem with djvu. As I don't have kde installed on my system, I don't have any qtrc file, then, djvu QT gui is shown with ugly fonts and colors. I simply copied a qtrc file that worked ok in the past in /usr/qt/3/etc/settings/qtrc and it works great now.

From my point of view, a better option for handling qtrc creation would be letting qt ebuild ot install a default one in that location and prevent all other ebuilds from touching it, instead of making last installed app to rewrite it

Thanks a lot

I forgot to say that opera is also affected by this one and that opensuse is currently using this way for qtrc stuff

From redhat-artwork ChangeLog,

  07 Nov 2009; Samuli Suominen <>
  Remove KDE3 support.

And the fact that Qt 3 was removed from portage. 

Can we get a update on this bug? Reopen if this is still a issue.
