Sidebar color [SOLVED]
« on: February 04, 2016, 07:16:49 am »

Some of the other distros i got installed, do not have a colored bar (to move it up and down on the right side) as in VL 7.1 Light (icewm).
How can i put the light blue side bar? what app i have to install, without it, it's hard on my eyes.

Thank You!

Probably a theme setting. Try switching to another one. In VL STD, I prefer "kde2", as it has double bottom arrows on the scroll bar.

If you hate the tabs up top and want them like it used to be back in the day, check out Classic Theme Restorer.
