Linux: Ubuntu 11 getting rid of the overly scroll bar

One of the following two methods should remove the poorly designed overlay scroll bar on Ubuntu 11

1. sudo su echo “export LIBOVERLAY_SCROLLBAR=0” > /etc/X11/Xsession.d/80overlayscrollbars

Restart your computer.

If the above solution doesn’t work, you can also try removing the overlay scrollbars packages:
2. sudo apt-get remove overlay-scrollbar liboverlay-scrollbar-0.1-0
