[Bug 890986] Re: Lotus Notes is incompatible with ayatana scrollbars


Hi WenLong Feng, 
I have already written the patches to do this and tested them. They work well for me and have been merged into the codebase.

Using the executable binary or wrapper doesn't make a difference, we grab the name using gtk's g_get_prgname.
I've tested this by wrapping notes in shell scripts and running directly and it makes no difference, the blacklisting still works and the scrollbars then behave in the way you would expect.

I would like to see Lotus Notes support the overlay scrollbars but
understand there would have to be some code changes to do this, I
believe blacklisting Notes from the overlay-scrollbar would be the best
behaviour for 12.04 LTS.

I have a test package that is compiled to work on Ubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric) with this patch which you can try if you like:
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:tellis/generic
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install overlay-scrollbar

Alternatively, the same behaviour can be achieved by exporting the
environment variable LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0. I would prefer if you could
test the package above.
