xfce4-terminal, overlay bar on scrolling

Hi all,

I just finished a full upgrade from kernel 5.12.11 to 5.18.14.
After reboot, i got an issue with my xfce4-terminal (1.0.4-1)
My xfce4 term config has no change for over 10 years,
and i run it from openbox.


# Issue
It's happens when i full fill the term and scrollbar appears (not visible on to my screens because i remove them from confs)
A gray overlay bar occurs on top of shell, and a second one from bottom shell when i scroll top.

# Attempts
- i first suspected gtk themes, that i hastened to disload,
but nothing changed.
- i remembered those two packets removed by conflict during the upgrade,
and try to reinstall them.
    > insight-toolkit-5.2.1-15 (nothing changed)
    > wxgtk2 (nothing changed)
- i also tried to swap libxfce4ui with libxfce4ui-nocsd (nothing changed)

Any clues for help ?
How to debug the terminal ? (i found no verbose param from manual, and start one from a xterm give no log output)
Free feel to ask more info you could need.
Thanks by advance.

Here are the screenshots:

Holy oversides images, Batman!

Please reread the code of conduct (link in signature for ease); take note of the forum-specific guidelines link, in particular. I have removed the inline expansion.

All the best,

Hi HolosGhost,
Indeed it looks better this way ! (i firstly followed the bbs helper)
Thanks for the link.


I can't find what exactly causing the mistake but found the common point in the gtk theme and fixed it from his css.
(don't know what changed in xfce term update)

You can mark my topic as solved.

It probably makes sense for you to post the common point as well as the thing you did to "fix it", since that might make this thread more helpful for anyone dropping by looking for an answer.

This is something you should do yourself. Edit the first post of the thread and you'll be able to modify the title.

Re: xfce4-terminal, overlay bar on scrolling

Of course smile
But i notice it partially solves my problem.
The real issue lies in the xfce4-terminal upgrade itself (not solved for now).

i fixed css theme code from the following path :

~/.themes/[my theme]/gtk-3.0/gtk-main.css

by opacifying the color of affected element.

@define-color bg_color #222222;
to ->
@define-color bg_color rgba(0, 0, 0, 0);

It is a custom theme, but the syntax is almost the same for all themes.
I only retrieved the right color picked from a screenshot, and matched from the .css

Hope it can be usefull for others.
