Remover ou Desabilitar a barra de rolagem overlay – Ubuntu 11.04


Eu particularmente gosto das barras de rolagens normais, assim que instalei o Ubuntu 11.04, percebi o novo tipo de barras de rolagem e nao gostei. Se voce quiser remove-la:

$ sudo apt-get remove overlay-scrollbar

Caso não funcione utilize (dica do Joonas)

$ sudo apt-get remove liboverlay-scrollbar-0.1-0

Ou se voce preferir desatibilita-la (Eu acho mais interessante), utilize:

$ sudo echo export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0 > /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80overlayscrollbars

Reinicie seu sistema

    Thanks! I disabled it and got my scrollbars back. I hated the overlay scrollbars. I can only imagine how difficult it is for somebody with vision problems.

    It says “export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0″
    What you mean is "export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0"
    This blog software probably messes up the quotes

  3. Norbert Norbert

    Yeah, it also messed up my comment.
    On the second line of my last post, read regular quotes where it changed them (again).

  4. Sorry, I don't understand what you mean, I just tried the method that I wrote again and it is working.
    What is the problem?

    What Norbert meant is that your blog software mangles quotation marks by replacing them with typographical quotes, which obviously won't work when pasting them into a terminal.

    With regard to the package removal method, removing overlay-scrollbar didn't work for me; however, removing removing liboverlay-scrollbar-0.1-0 did the trick. No restart required, just log out and log in.

    Your blogging software also seems to have a problem formatting quotes 🙂

    Please read that last bit as "formatting dates". Or edit it. Thanks.

  7. Now I get it. Thanks Joonas, yes, I think my qTrasnlate plugin is messing up with the dates. Because when you're in Portugues version, the dates are show correctly.

    I will try to fix this. Really appreciate your comment. THANKS!

    Great post, thank you ! I really did not like the major alterations that were made in 11.04. I did not like Unity, I don't like the new scroll-bars and I don't like the new notification bar. I can't re-arrange the time, Pidgin IM icon, volume and network icons anymore.

    Change can be a good thing, but I don't like it when they change too much. I do not understand why they insist on keeping minimize, maximize and close buttons to the left. The largest part of the community did not like this and still they do it again 🙁

    Thank you, I really hate the overlay scrollbars and all this stupid new fancy UI thingies in the new ubuntu.

    Thanks, got proper scroll bars again!
    Tried the new scroll bar layout for a month or so but found it a pain at times and think it maybe a bit buggy. Good idea I think, just needs time to get it working properly.

    Thanks, this file (80overlayscrollbars) also works on 11.10 (the method I was using in 11.04 didn't).

    It makes Ubuntu usable!
