I'm trying to install and use a patched version of
liboverlay-scrollbar that matches my personal preferences. I've successfully downloaded
./autogen.sh; make; sudo make installed it.
Here's the problem. Taking a look at
ldd /usr/bin/*, it doesn't look like any applications actually use
liboverlay-scrollbar*.so. And even when I use something like:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib/:/usr/lib/" export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=1 gedit
The scrollbar-using application I call seems to blithely ignore my
/usr/local/lib libraries and use the system-installed ayatana scrollbars. My GTK+ libs are stock Ubuntu, so I'm assuming I don't need to patch and recompile the graphical toolkit.
Could anyone post a step-by-step process for installing overlay scrollbars from source?
