Bug Description

1.change theme to lubuntu-default
2. close Document viewer window
3. open any pdf file in document viewer
4. look how clicks on the far right edge of the scrollbar are ignored. (doesn't happen with the lxdesign theme)

according to this forum post, there's an easy fix for a similar theme:
http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-1859187.html

Basically the theme variable you want to change is the following line in your GTK-2.0 theme (it is line 64 in the copy of greybird I am using):
GtkScrollbar ::trough-border = 3where I guess the 3 will be theme dependent. So, to remove the padding on the outside of the scrollbar, simply change this '3' to a '0'.

Having this bug fixed would make the right edge of the scrollbar clickable in the document viewer application. This is not related to document viewer, it occurs in many other applications, but not all applications.

Are you in Oneiric or Precise?

Sorry, but the GTK2 part of the theme doesn't have that line on the gtkrc file. And remember that now Oneiric uses Clearlooks as engine, not Murruine. Another point is that this bug, if it happens to some machines (not mine) will be superseeded on this version, because it works fine on Precise.

I'll ask about it on the mailing list, but if nobody tells me more information I'll clean the bug.

might have left out a step. document viewer should be maximized

are you clicking on the empty part of the scrollbar without the drag bar?

Sorry, tested a lot of combinations and different ways of using the scrollbar, and it works fine.
