synaptic icons

Use synaptic?  Like the icons?  Read no farther
Whoever picked the default should put their thumb into their eye,
it won't matter, they are blind already

sudo cat /root/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini
[Settings]
gtk-font-name=Noto Sans 10
gtk-theme-name=Breeze
gtk-icon-theme-name=emacs
gtk-fallback-icon-theme=gnome
gtk-toolbar-style=GTK_TOOLBAR_ICONS
gtk-menu-images=1
gtk-button-images=1

the one to change is   gtk-icon-theme-name  ,,  emacs is the traditional look, much better

Re: synaptic icons

Kool. 

Didnt use emacs, but my particular icon setting (moka); yes- better.

Now, can you tell me how to change Synaptic scrolling to make it actually usable?  I dont care for the gtk scrolling functionality of clicking on the scroll area and having the scroll advance in regards to where you click, instead of a "page".  And worse in regards to Synaptic; the right-click into the scroll area doesnt scroll-page as it should, but scrolls at some ridiculously irritating slow pace; useless!  I have to click into the package display and use arrow keys to scroll in Synaptic to get work done.

Re: synaptic icons

I tried, it seems you have to do incantations and sacrifice a couple witches to post a screenshot
The "help" is not very helpful
trying again,, seems file:/// is essential, if it works

file:///home/d/Pictures/Screenshot.png

and... it didn't worl

Re: synaptic icons

Upload your screenshot to an image site (such as imgur) and put the link inside of

[img][/img]

tags. Your link should end in an image format, such as .jpg.

Use the clearlooks-phenix-darkpurpy theme.  Old style scrollbar restored.  big_smile   This is the magic needed thanks to fsmithred and the Xfce forum (long thread there on this topic).

# This file is sourced by Xsession(5), not executed.

# This file configures the global behavior of GTK3 "hidden" overlay 
# scrollbars and client side decorations. These settings may be overridden
# by individual users by setting the same variables to different values in
# in their ~/.xsessionrc.

BASESTARTUP=${STARTUP%% *}
BASESTARTUP=${BASESTARTUP##*/}
if [ "$BASESTARTUP" = x-session-manager ]; then
    BASESTARTUP=$(basename $(readlink /etc/alternatives/x-session-manager))
fi
case "$BASESTARTUP" in
  gnome-session*)
      # This is GNOME, make sure settings are left at their defaults.
      unset GTK_CSD
      unset GTK_OVERLAY_SCROLLING
      unset LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR
      ;;
  *)
      # Not GNOME, and the user didn't specify settings themselves, 
      # so set them to 0.
      if [ -z "$GTK_OVERLAY_SCROLLING" ] ; then
          GTK_OVERLAY_SCROLLING=0
      fi
      export GTK_OVERLAY_SCROLLING
      if [ -z "$LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR" ] ; then
          LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0
      fi
      export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR
      if [ -z "$GTK_CSD" ] ; then
          GTK_CSD=0
      fi
      export GTK_CSD
      ;;

And?  what file might this be?  Could we have a link to the thread? or a thread name?

Sure.  Here is the link.  I did the artwork and research about the scrollbar then fsmithred took over and integrated the default theme into the desktop-base package so I suspect that's where the file resides.  Maybe he'll stop by to explain.  There are other ways to fix the scrollbar explained in the Xfce thread but they weren't suitable for package installation.
