I'm using Ubuntu 11.04, and installed XFCE, so it's more like Xubuntu.
The scrollbars are different from what I remember in the past. instead of showing a traditional scrollbar in various applications, it hides the scrollbar. When the mouse goes over the scrollable area, a tiny scrollbar appears. I have to hover the mouse carefully over it, and then a scrollbar tab shows up which I then have to carefully grab with the mouse. I then can scroll.
Aside from this being finicky and clumsy, it actually doesn't work in some cases in Eclipse for instance. The place where the scrollbar tab appears, if underneath that is a clickable link, the scrollable tab won't appear or won't work.
I'd like my normal traditional scrollbars back, but in Settings -> Window Manager or Appearance or anywhere else, I can't make those scrollbars work normal again.
Does anyone have a solution for this? Is there some sort of gconf setting of sorts that lets me override something perhaps? If anyone on the XFCE team reads this, would you consider making it possible to make scrollbars work normal and usable again?
