I'm having problems with Code::Blocks 10.05
my os specs:

  • Ubuntu 11.04 - fresh install
  • gtk theme: Ambiance
  • Unity

The actual problem

(don't mind the code nor the errors) Screenshot

  1. the most visible one - stripes As I scroll down the code, the horizontal stripes start to show up. I think it's some problem with the screen updating, because when I force it to update (for example by selecting the text or invocating the contextual menu by pressing the right mouse button), the stripes disappear.
  2. the second one - font colour bug I believe this is the Ambiance's bug because it doesn't happen in other themes. You can see it in the left panel where it says "Workspace" and in the panel at the bottom in the Build messages tab: the selected line makes the text barely readable.

Is there any fix to these bugs?

1.the reason it rendered like that is because overlay-scrollbar, search overlay in synaptic,remove it,then: sudo su echo “export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0″ > /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80overlayscrollbars

  1. first way is to change theme(easy way) the hard way is to patch codeblock and build your own,google it.

or just update in synaptic (right click: mark for update faster reload the package information )

and restart codeblock, and it works :)
