Description Bernhard 2023-07-18 05:39:36 UTC
Desktop environments such as Xfce4 do change the size of the scrollbar slider on Mouse-Over. This behaviour is not reflected in LibreOffice which makes it difficult to grab and move the slider (both horizontally and vertically).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open any libreoffice component
2. try to grab and slide any scrollbar

Actual Results:
the sliders in the scrollbar stay small - difficult to grab

Expected Results:
the size of the slider should change

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
I cannot get beyond this version for my environment:
libreoffice is already the newest version (1:7.3.7-0ubuntu0.22.04.3).

Thanks for the report, Bernhard.
Native GTK scrollbars are available since LO 7.5, so please try this version: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/download-libreoffice/
You should be able to install the debs in parallel to your current version.
