Hi all,

I upgraded gtk-engines recently and now my default gtk engine/theme Clearlooks draws blueish scrollbars. Previously they were grey (and that I liked better).

Here's my current ~/.gtkrc-2.0:
Code:

gtk-theme-name = "Clearlooks"
gtk-font-name = "Tahoma 8"
gtk-menu-popup-delay = 0


I found the file /usr/share/gtk-engines/clearlooks.xml and it holds this section:
Code:

  <option type="color" name="scrollbar_color" default="#999999">
    <long_name>Scrollbar Color</long_name>
    <long_name xml:lang="de">Bildlaufleistenfarbe</long_name>
    <description>Sets the Color of Scrollbars</description>
    <description xml:lang="de">Legt die Farbe der Bildlaufleisten fest</description>
  </option>


Anyone knows what to put in my ~/gtkrc-2.0 file to change the scrollbar_color? I don't want to mess with the system file clearlooks.xml. I'd rather change it in my user's configuration file.

Regards
mic

Edit and fix:
Code:

style "my-clearlooks" = "clearlooks-default"
{
    engine "clearlooks"
    {
        colorize_scrollbar = FALSE  # TRUE = blue scrollbars
        menubarstyle       = 0     # 0 = flat, 1 = sunken, 2 = flat gradient
        toolbarstyle       = 0     # 0 = flat, 1 = enable effects
        animation          = FALSE # TRUE = animated progress bars
        style              = CLASSIC # GUMMY or CLASSIC
    }
}

class "*" style "my-clearlooks"

Is it possible to have the scrollbar appear the crazy blue on mouse over but the normal gray otherwise?

Hi!

I don't think so, but to tell you the truth I don't know.
