I already did enough searching to find this:
I was contacted by someone recently about wikifying this thread:Yes, we are only allowing edits to posts for 24 hours. This is a new policy.
You have two options.
#1 - I highly suggest you move your howto to the Ubuntu wiki. There is a script to automate the process (converts forms posts to wiki syntax).
wiki has a number of advantages
#2 Would be to ask a staff member to edit your post.
I have no problem with that but I'm unable to help with the process. Anyway, on to what I currently need edited.
In step #8 of that post I'd recently made a change:
The reason for that is because I've encountered a few situations where multiple users use the same puter and each user may have different DE preferences; one user may want Unity w/overlay-scrollbars while another may want classic (no effects) w/o overlay-scrollbars, etc.Step #8:
I found the overlay-scrollbars to be inconsistent and annoying in the classic DE and I'd previously recommended just removing them altogether but I believe I've found a much better way to disable them on a per-user basis. Simply run one command:
echo export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0 >> ~/.xprofile
Then just log out and log back in for that change to take effect.
If you should later wish to revert that just run:
sed -i 's/^export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR.*/#&/' ~/.xprofile
No change needed there ATM but I'd like to change step #9 in the Oneiric version of that to reflect the same. Currently it says:
Is that understandable? ATM I do not wish to change anything here:Step #9: I found the overlay-scrollbars to be inconsistent and annoying in the classic DE so I removed them, but that was totally a matter of preference, and this is one of those steps that really seems to somewhat break Unity! Should you want to remove them run:
sudo apt-get purge liboverlay-scrollbar-0.2-0 liboverlay-scrollbar3-0.2-0 overlay-scrollbar
Note: You'll likely have to reboot for that change to fully take effect.
But step #9 here:
Should reflect that same change
Of course the step # needs to remain the same (I changed the order of some steps between Oneiric and Precise, and one less PPA is required).
I wish I could help with the wiki but I simply lack the grey matter and the time
