Description hjudt 2009-07-05 15:49:11 UTC
In ~/.gtkrc-2.0 file, I have the following setting to place the scrollbar on the
left side of the window, not the right side:

gtk-scrolled-window-placement = top-right

All GTK application honor this setting, except gimp, dia and openoffice. Even
firefox allows to change the scrollbar location by a hidden preference in

To make the UI look more consistent across all applications, please provide for
a setting to place the scrollbar to the left side of the window, or simply use
the gtk-scrolled-window-placement setting to place it on the desired side.
