it is easy. i have just changed 2 or 3 lines in file gtkrc (parameters related with scroll bar size). and also some .png image files as attched in zip package have resized using adobe photoshop.

it seems that it will also work if you copy those files in the zip package to other theme directory to replace original items.

ah.sima, that's what I call service! Thanks very much. (In fact it's better than service. It's *complete* service: First you bring up the problem. Then you solve it. Then you make it amateur-friendly.)

(My own preference would be to have the little-used horizontal scroll bar the old size; but I'm very pleased with this as it is. I was thinking I would have to grown a thumbnail )

it seems the heigth of horizontal scroll bar is using the same size of vertical scroll bar width. this is a problem.

( it is usually, many pages have correct page width will make the horizontal bar disapear when in full screen mode. this may make you happier )

following post has a zip file which contain all files related to this change, it may have many items in common for different themes ( i can not confirm. i am just a newbie for linux)

http://www.internettablettalk.com/fo...ght=scroll+bar

remark:

1. file /usr/share/themes/echo/gtk-2.0/gtkrc have been revised to change setting of scroll bar size (2 or 3 lines, just related to scroll bar size). you may found changes compare to the original file with a file compare or diff program.
2. some image files related to picture of scroll bar at /usr/share/themes/echo/images directory has been resized.
3. you can change above files in your theme directory accordingly after you have installed you prefered theme .deb package to get a wide scroll bar theme.
4. if you want to make .deb package for the theme you have just revised, you can copy the theme directory to a linux machine with scratchbox developing environment installed, and run dpkg to generate your deb package in scratchbox. you may alse need to create a simple control file to control building process of your .deb package.
