changing appearance on an older calibre

suspect I may have looked past the answer but I'm having a little trouble:

- calibre 0.6.28 bin pkg/linux (don't want to update glib)

- I use e17 so don't have any qt/kde libs installed (or gnome for that matter)

what I'm wondering, can I change the appearance of this rev calibre if I install qt*-config? I installed the deps for qt3-config and while I can add themes to it, it doesn't appear to have any effect on calibre (or perhaps by not being a kde/qt user I just don't know how to make it do something).

then I noticed in the calibre dir multiple "*qt4*" files so presumably I need qt4-config? but before trying to get it and its many more deps installed, am I wasting my time doing this? my wm/gtk themes are dark so the white calibre window is like staring at headlights on my monitor

so I'd like to be able to tone it down some by making the calibre gui a bit darker - would that happen with either qt4-config or possibly something else?
