Tip of the Week

This week’s tip comes from the latest issue of Linux Format magazine. When we reviewed Linux Mint 11, I complained about the new overlay scrollbars that Mint inherited from Ubuntu 11.04. Well, in his review of Mint 11, Shashank Sharma provides the command that will switch you back to old skool classic scrollbars:sudo apt-get remove overlay-scrollbar liboverlay-scrollbar-0.1-0 (then logout or reboot)
