Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center


I've made a patch for gnome-mouse-properties. It will add scrolledbars in some dialogs when the screen height is less than 600.

Please consider including this patch, thanks.

changing glade files makes upgrader complicate, would it be possible to do that by code changes rather?

Sebastian/mpt: Guys. Is the scroll bar adequate or you think we should suffle things around like in the about me dialogue? Please let us know.

the scrollbar will do for jaunty it's late to reshuffle things, I'm busy this week though and will probably not review those changes before next week

Paul and I discussed a non-scrollbar plan:

1. Split General tab to be horizontally layed out (move Drag & Drop and Double Click sections to right of others).
2. Lay out Accessibility a little differently (2x2 mouse gestures rather than 4x1 and move Dwell Click help text to right)

thank for your work there, the updated version works but displays a double border in the scrollbar displaying case, could you look at fixing those?

I will upload this change since it doesn't break the standard desktop case, would still be nice to fix the bug
