This question has already been asked and answered for GTK-2.0 here ( Disable resize gripper in windows? ) but I couldn't find a way to achieve this on GTK-3.0 (on Oneiric Ocelot).
I've seen the answer on the above link where it is needed to recompile GTK ... I seriously hope that's not the case with GTK-3.0 and that there's a workaround like with gtk-2.0.
Now, before someone comes and asks why I would want to remove this resize grip , here's why :
- I haven't used a resize grip or border in years, I use Alt+Click. I literally freak out when I have to use OS X or Windows.
- Sometime it shows up when it shouldn't. Splash screen, widgets, etc ...
- I don't find it visually appealing.
If this is hardcoded into gtk-3.0 then there should be an option in gconf or dconf to disable it.
I've fetched the source for gtk-3.0 and this seems to be related to the 063_resize_grip_default.patch where a configuration key is mentioned : "resize-grip-default".
When I grep for this in the themes I get this :
/usr/share/themes $ grep -ri resize-grip-default * Ambiance/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css: -GtkWindow-resize-grip-default: false; Radiance/gtk-3.0/gtk-widgets.css: -GtkWindow-resize-grip-default: false;
If this configuration value is set to false, where does the resize grip come from ?
