  • Linux Lite: 5.0 64bit

  • CPU: Intel Xeon Dual CPU's E5645 2.4GHz 12 Cores

  • MEMORY: 16Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: nVidia GeForce GTX 1650

  • Kernel: 5.x
This will cover many applications, but not all.

1. Open your home folder.

2. Press Ctrl + H (to show hidden files)\

3. Open the .gtkrc-2.0 file, add the following to a new line starting at the bottom of the file:

Code: [Select]
style "myscrollbar"
{
     GtkScrollbar::slider-width=XX
}
class "GtkScrollbar" style "myscrollbar"

Example of entire .gtkrc-2.0 file:

Code: [Select]
gtk-menu-popdown-delay = 0
gtk-menu-bar-popup-delay = 0
gtk-enable-animations = 0
gtk-timeout-expand = 0

style "myscrollbar"
{
     GtkScrollbar::slider-width=25
}
class "GtkScrollbar" style "myscrollbar"

Change '25' to a thickness you prefer.

4. Logout/in again to complete.

I tried this on LLOS 5 and it does not seem to work.  I tried 40, 80 and 150 and saw no difference in file windows or Firefox.  I know that this is an older article, is there something new that would do this?

Thanks

I found something else on the internet that seems to be working.  Thanks for reading.
