Upgrading Debian 10 to Debian 11, three annoyances and a solution for one of them

The good thing I've found is how to get away with GTK3's "animations," which make the UI render somewhat visibly slower even in other aspects (like browsing Geeqie's images), despite xorg.conf settings that give me the best performance, as assessed by gtkperf.

Apparently I got rid of this message popping up every now and then on some scripts (calling things like hsetroot, feh, I'm not sure which triggered it, but I'm almost certain it wasn't a single thing) by installing a somewhat "hidden" i386 package on Debian:

sudo apt-get install libgtk3-nocsd0:i386

Autostart script method to fix the GTK3 scroll-warp feature-bug

Posted 09-27-2016 at 07:41 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 09-27-2016 at 07:44 PM by the dsc

I'm not aware of there being something like a "gtk-3.0-settings.d" to preserve settings.ini options between theme changes (including involuntary ones), so that's a work-around method, adding that to the session auto-start script:

! grep warps-slider $HOME/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini && echo "gtk-primary-button-warps-slider = false" >> $HOME/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

Discussions of GTK3 and the pros and cons of the decisions taken by the Gnome- and GTK-developers awakened again my interest in the program, as it comes with an optional GTK3 user-interface.

"Legacy scrolling". Back then clicking on the scroll bar meant to go about a page up or down, not that you magically know the exact content that is at that absolute point.
