14 Thanks! I had found gtk3-nocsd. I initially ran across it many years
15 ago when trying to get evince to act like a good X11 app, but
16 switching from evince to atril solved that problem without having to
17 try gtk3-nocsd.
19 gtk3-nocsd was a seperate library that replaced a few GTK3
20 functions. It was used by setting LD_PRELOAD so that the gtk3-nocsd
21 library was searched first -- that way it could be applied only to
22 specific executables.
24 OTOH, gtk3-classic is a set of source patches that get added to the
25 "normal" gtk portage directory. Those patches are then used the next
26 time gtk3 is emerged. That means that it's a permanent, system-wide
27 change: all executables that use GTK3 will be using a library that has
28 the classic patches.
30 Am I undertanding the mechanisms correctly?
