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.

hey.
i'm on Peppermint 8.
we had a power outage here due to thunderstorm.
i decided on Kokodi as my theme.
the file "/usr/share/themes/Kokodi/gtk-2.0" is not listed.
can i copy and move this file gtk-2.0 from another directory?

thanks...

Over the year's I've tried configuring ClawsMail many times as an exercise.  I think I managed it once and promptly forgot how I did it.  I came to the conclusion that a mail client that awkward to configure, isn't worth bothering with.  There isn't even a decent tutorial on YouTube.  For a local email client, I recommend Thunderbird.  It's easy to install and configure  ;).
yeh, thanks.
stopped using Tbird in MS Windows a couple years ago cause it was so bloated.
ideally i want to make Claws-mail work for me.
will continue to work to that end.

so i am not knowledgeable enough to get this email client to install.
i get a config error that references pkg-config is missing.
i went to the freedesktop.org and got the pkg-config 0.29.2 tar file.
ran ./configure in the pkg-config directory and now get a "configure: error: Either a previously installed pkg-config or "glib-2.0 >= 2.16" could not be found".

not sure where to go from here.
any help is much appreciated.
