[Issue] Scrollbar glitch with AOO 4.1 on some GTK themes

Postby Hagar Delest » Thu May 01, 2014 3:57 pm

i've filed a bug report but it seems that it's limited to the desktop manager: with XFCE I had noticed the disappearance of the scroll sliders everywhere in AOO (main window, sidebar, help files, dialogs, ...):

Seems there is no problem with Debian and KDE.

Anyone see the same?

-> Issue # 124788 - No scroll slider at all for any window
-> Issue 121627 - [GTK] Scrollbars without steppers are buggy

I'm using Xubuntu desktop (not XFCE) and have no problem.

Xubuntu use XFCE. Have you changed the window manager?

I made some tests, (I was mainly waiting for your answer in fact since I know you use Xubuntu) and found out that it was a problem with the themes. Some of the themes have this problem and some don't...

Thanks! I should have tried that earlier.

At first login I had choice of XFCE session or Xubuntu session. I autologin to Xubuntu session. My theme is Bluebird, with elementary XFCE icons.

Bluebird is not affected indeed but Greybird is (with some others).
But it's still XFCE.

I'll try Greybird just to see! I knew it was XFCE but login differentiates for some reason.

Yes, the sliders vanish in Greybird, but are OK in Bluebird.

Yes, never figured out what was behind exactly.

In fact, after checking some old mail from the dev ML, I saw that this had been reported already. I had not used the correct keywords to search the bugzilla (scrollbar is the good one...).

There is so little difference between many of the Xubuntu themes (leaving aside the dark and high contrast ones) that after ten minutes I doubt you'd notice you were running Bluebird!

But I hate the blue background for the menus, I prefer the black background for menus. I've found a nice theme: Ambiance light fixed. Have tweaked the base background to have a very light gray instead of white and I'm fine with that.
