I would like to make sure that scrollbars never show up on my windows, but I recently noticed that when I created a new frame with
C-x 5 2 the new frame gets a scrollbar, even though the original frame does not. The lines that might be relevant from my
init.el are below:
(scroll-bar-mode -1) (if (fboundp 'scroll-bar-mode) (scroll-bar-mode -1)) (if (fboundp 'tool-bar-mode) (tool-bar-mode -1)) (if (fboundp 'menu-bar-mode) (menu-bar-mode -1))
I can still use
M-x toggle-scroll-bar to turn it off in the new frame, but I feel like that shouldn't be necessary.
To clarify, I'm using
emacsclient -c & to start Emacs on Ubuntu, and when I do this I get a scroll bar.
C-h v scroll-bar-mode gives me:
scroll-bar-mode is a variable defined in `scroll-bar.el'. Its value is nil Original value was right Documentation: Specify whether to have vertical scroll bars, and on which side. Possible values are nil (no scroll bars), `left' (scroll bars on left) and `right' (scroll bars on right). To set this variable in a Lisp program, use `set-scroll-bar-mode' to make it take real effect. Setting the variable with a customization buffer also takes effect. You can customize this variable.
So the value of
scroll-bar-mode is properly set to
nil, but somehow Emacs is ignoring this to give me a scroll bar anyway.
