i appreciate the help and taking the time to work with me on this scroll bar issue.
all the tweaks do not have any effect whatsoever.
i have not tried to change any colour.
so, could we try to change the colour?
something simple to see if i am able to manipulate the file.

Have you rebooted the system?

I take it you're making the changes to the Greybird theme ?

Are you actually using the Greybird theme ?

If not, which theme are you using, and where did you get it ?

As for the colors it's very simple. You find the hex-code for the color you want to use and change the defaults in a similar way...

Hi again,
Is it only chromium? Chromium should be using gtk-3. Do other gtk-3 apps behave like you want them to?
I use firefox and don't have chromium installed.

I'm pretty sure Chromium draws its own window decorations (hence why there's no window titlebar in Chrome/Chromium) unless you specifically toggle its "Use system titlebar and borders" setting, but even then I think it still draws its own scrollbars (but I could be wrong).

In Chromium/Chrome, go to
chrome://settings/

and try toggling the "Use system titlebar and borders" setting.



But there is a chrome/chromium extension called "Rescroller" that allows you to change it's scrollbar size/colour
https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/rescroller/ddehdnnhjimbggeeenghijehnpakijod?hl=en



You used to be able to easily create/edit a Custom.css for Chrome/Chromium (kinda the equivalent of Firefox's userChrome.css) to apply user customisations .. but it's now just another thing Google decided you shouldn't be allowed to do ::)

i am currently experimenting with it.

thanks to all.

not you... and not of "how to..." in chromium!! Chromium/chrome will never be installed on my systems.


EDIT: Hmm! Your horizontal scrollbar is missing the logo
