My own fault I guess. Find one of the themes that supports both gtk2 and gtk3. However, if you weren't aware, gtk3 has reportedly been breaking its theming, or people's actual themes at least, on every major release to now. I think that's why people are getting variable behaviours on gtk3. > 2. On gtk3, the horizontal scrollbars at the bottom of the panes are > missing.

The 'thumb' extends over the whole width, so it can't be moved to show other columns.

The rationale is - you select an item, then delete it, and then there's nothing left that YOU selected. The filelist (treeview) cursor is still there, after the position of the last-deleted item. An up- or down-arrow keypress will select the next item in that direction. I know that some users prefer to always have something selected. You may recall the config option to select first item in newly-opened directories. Maybe we should relate to that, as a general policy for the post-task state of each filelist. On the other hand, we can reasonably argue that renaming should not remove the selection. Code to implement that is now in svn. And, oh joy, on gtk3 it still selects one item too many e.g. select and rename 2 items, end up with 3 selected. I'm inclined to try to prevent that, even at the cost of removing the post-deletion selection that you favour ! > > The selection thing after deletion (or renaming) is enough to keep me on > gtk3 at the moment, but without the horizontal scrollbars (or the ability > to resize the columns either, another gtk3 problem?), I can't see stuff > like filesize and dates. Tough choices! That one, I don't have. However swapping from gtk2 to gtk3 version will sometimes reset some column-widths to 0. What happens if you disable, then re-enable, the un-resizable columns via a config dialog ?
