I just loaded up bbLean as a way of speeding up my old Win7 laptop, only to discover that Google Chrome (the app I use the most) was flickering really badly because it has its own skin, and bbLean was trying to apply its own titlebar too.
I would have just commented on Nimret’s blog to say thanks, but it seems that comments are turned off. I decided to post thanks and the method here instead (but you can read the original here).
The answer to Chrome flickering with bbLean is:
- Open the blackbox right click menu from the desktop
- Go to bbleanskin then Edit Exclusions
- Type ‘chrome.exe’ at the end of the file
This should work for any applications facing the same problem.
Let me know if this doesn’t fix your bbLean flickering issues.
Edit: This reportedly affects other apps with a bespoke title bar such as Firefox
