    Overlay Scrollbars

    I am running 12.04 and today I have the ***** overlay scrollbars in gksudo nautilus but the old scrollbars in regular nautilus. I hate them and have tried everything to get rid of them but now in gksudo nautilus they are back.

    Just remove the following and they should be gone i think.

    overlay-scrollbar
    overlay-scrollbar-gtk2
    overlay-scrollbar-gtk3

    +1 for removing overlay-scrollbar. I just don't like them, removing those packages is one of the first things I do after installing Ubuntu.

    Will this work?

    In your other thread you say that drag and drop wont work. Me wonders if there is a bigger problem here.

    Drag and drop works for apps from menu. Are you sure it should work for a file? It doesn't even if I drag while holding win+alt
