The the scroll bar is set by the GTK theme. You can change the GTK theme by the app Chtheme. "Menu>Desktop>Chtheme". If you want the theme then you need to edit that theme which I don't know how to do.

If you are using JWM, which I think you are, then the title bar is done by the JWM theme. The title bar hight is controled by the <Height> tag in the <WindowStyle> tag in the file "/root/.jwm/jwmrc-theme" The other themes are in "/root/.jwm/themes" You can swith themes by "Menu>Desktop>JWM Configuration"

Example:
Code:
<WindowStyle>
    <Font>Sans-12</Font>
    <Width>5</Width>
    <Height>20</Height>     
    <Active>
       <Text>white</Text>
       <Title>#4A5966</Title>
<!--       <Corner>#4A5966</Corner> -->
       <Outline>black</Outline>
    </Active>
    <Inactive>
       <Text>black</Text>
       <Title>#DCDAD5</Title>         
<!--       <Corner>#DCDAD5</Corner> -->
       <Outline>black</Outline>
    </Inactive>
</WindowStyle>

Hello revo

Welcome to the kennels.

Let's assume for example,
that you are wanting to hack the Polished-Blue theme.

What you need to do is,
open up /usr/share/themes/Polished-Blue/gtk-2.0/gtkrc in Geany (or whatever text editor),
right click on it, and select Open As Text

At lines 21 and 22
you will see this:
Code:
GtkRange::slider_width            = 14
GtkRange::stepper_size            = 14


Just change it to whatever you desire,
something like this for example:
Code:
GtkRange::slider_width            = 10
GtkRange::stepper_size            = 10


Save your changes,
then go to Menu > Desktop > Chtheme
select any other theme, then select Polished-Blue
Click Apply, then click OK

You should now have skinny little scrollbars.

No problem mate.
I only looked into it because revo asked how to do it, and i am a curious little sod. Laughing
A quick google, and i soon had the answer.

I'd love to, if i knew anything about it, but i am not that familiar with KDE
Are you referring to a Puppy derivative (possibly dejan's KDPUP) by any chance,
if so i could always download it and have a play with it.

Certainly mate, here you go: how to resize scrollbars in gtk theme
It was the second link: [ubuntu] Scrollbar resizing - Ubuntu Forums
that gave me the answer.

I'm not sure exactly what it is you are after,
if it is the double arrows at the bottom of the scrollbar, then i think we may be in business. (see pic)

Let's use the Polished-Blue theme once again as the guinea pig.

Open up /usr/share/themes/Polished-Blue/gtk-2.0/gtkrc in Geany (or whatever text editor),
right click on it, and select Open As Text
Now add the following:
Code:
GtkScrollbar::has-secondary-forward-stepper = 0
GtkScrollbar::has-secondary-backward-stepper = 1

just beneath:
Code:
GtkRange::slider_width            = 14
GtkRange::stepper_size            = 14

Please note: In the image below, these are both set to 16

Save your changes,
then go to Menu > Desktop > Chtheme
select Polished-Blue
Click Apply, then click OK


Hope this helps
CatDude
.

P.S
I included the line:
Code:
GtkScrollbar::has-secondary-forward-stepper = 0

just in case you fancied having two arrows at the top as well,
in which case you would change the 0 for a 1
