It seems overlay scrollbars were removed in 0.3 Freya.

Here's a patch. Thank you, Roi M (
He walked me through the process of patching here
Also, I uploaded the full patched Tweaks code on my git:



bmeznarsic, are you actively developing this or is this just a patch for now?

Just a patch until Mr. Langfermann decides to fix and update the code... There are also a couple of new projects out there, trying to achieve similar functionality... I wouldn't worry.

I was actually considering cleaning it up a little bit and resuming development, but didn't want to step on any toes -- the original author hasn't been heard from in quite a while.

Changed in elementary-community:
assignee: nobody → Michael P. Starkweather (mpstark)
assignee: Michael P. Starkweather (mpstark) → nobody

I wrote a shell script that applies the patch talked about in post #3

It manually installs from this repository along with a patch by Roi M

Looks like 0.3 Freya Elementary Tweaks can now be installed via PPA thanks to Michael Starkweather

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mpstark/elementary-tweaks-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install elementary-tweaks
