But I need some kind of system-settings for qt3 then, since the normal qt4 settings do nothing to change its look. Will have to investigate that. Does that solve the same issue with scribus?

If you have qt3 installed, there should be a qt3-based qtconfig, look for it.
As for Qt4, I agree, but it was a major redesign and porting things was not always trivial, especially for major and complex programs. But now that qt3 has basically been orphaned, it is not a good idea to depend on it.
EDIT: I don't have qt3 installed anymore, so I can't check, but when I was still using qt3 stuff, that's how I changed the theme. The default themes are not terribly gorgeous, but should be considerably better than the motif one. And you can always download other themes.
As for scribus, if it is also based on qt3, then you can also theme it with qtconfig.
I only know the .bmk file extension, its for the revit architecture but the others, i have never seen any of that..probably that extensions is for CAD presentation format and not for modeling.
Looks way too early in development and probably stalled. QCad and FreeCAD seem more advanced.

Nice! I've been waiting for them to release the beta for a while, but was worried when last month they removed the "beta version for linux coming soon" text from the main page.

think BRL-CAD looks good too..... but maybe not for your purpose

But its 2011 and all the FOOS people MUST seat down and decide on a common way of installing packages in ALL linux distros.
