scrollbar images in gtk3 themes

I am using XFCE 4.12 in opensuseuse Tumbleweed.

At the moment I am using an edited Adwaita for my theme.

No matter what gtk3 theme I use, I can't get them to use the scrollbar/slider images in the asset folders. I have been able to change the slider width, length and color. Te one time I succeeded (and I don't remember how I did it) the image just repeated itself in the scrollbars.

The gtk2 parts of the theme work fine.

Can anyone point me to a solution?

Re: scrollbar images in gtk3 themes

What version of GTK3 are you using? And are you talking about the Overlay Scrollbars (which can be disabled via export GTK_OVERLAY_SCROLLING=0).

Perhaps an screenshot might help.

3.16.6-1.1. At least that is the version showing in my package manager.

I have no idea. I installed from an opensuse intall disk and chose XFCE as the DE. I have changed any environment variables.

I don't know how to put images into posts. Can you point me to directions?

The screenshot shows Mozilla Firefox (gtk2) using a graphic for the scrollbar. On top is LibreOffice 5 (gtk3) with widened scrollbars, using a color for the slider. I'd like to be able to use images that are in the assets folder.

Thanks

It's easy. Just enclose the image's address within IMG tags:

[img]http://islocus.net/images/screenshot.png[/img]

And you end up with this:

Re: scrollbar images in gtk3 themes

Is it just libreoffice that is causing you this problem? If so, version 5 of libreoffice implemented some new sort of themeing that doesn't work quite right (still experimental). You can test the differences by running it as such:

SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gen lowriter
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=kde4 lowriter
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk lowriter
SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk3 lowriter

I ended up using "SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gtk" to get it to display correctly. In Arch, the libreoffice package shipped with am /etc/profile.d/libreoffice*.sh file that allowed you to set this value system-wide.

Re: scrollbar images in gtk3 themes

It's not just LibreOffice. The other gtk3 based apps are doing the same thing.

Re: scrollbar images in gtk3 themes

Maybe the developers broke something the last time they released an update for Gtk3 (now that would be a surprise[/sarcasm])? Have you tried reverting to a previous version? Or checking to see if there is a newer one?

Re: scrollbar images in gtk3 themes

you need to use css3 eg border images for example:

no images just css drawing: https://github.com/sixsixfive/Glare/blo … ollbar.css
border images: https://github.com/sixsixfive/Glare/blo … tebook.css
background widgets new gtk-scale: https://github.com/sixsixfive/Glare/blo … ton.css#L3
background widgets old background way: https://github.com/sixsixfive/Glare/blo … le.css#L24

also expect everything to break in gtk 3.18


$ aptitude why gnome   
Unable to find a reason to install gnome.

regards, ssf
