I confirm that I've seen this once, I don't remember how I've fixed this. Maybe try to delete ~/.config/xpad. Anyway this happens only once for me and unfortunately I have no steps to reproduce.

The missing scrollbars are due to a bug in Xpad 5.2 and 5.3.
This has been fixed in 5.4.

Which version of Xpad are you using?

1) i tried #1 by deleting ~/.config/xpad , it did not work for me

2) I am using Version: 5.3.0-1 as seen below.

root@kali:~# apt-cache show xpad
Package: xpad
Version: 5.3.0-1
Installed-Size: 426

Pls how do i update to 5.4.

i think kali linux have not upgraded to version 5.4

Indeed, it seems that way.

You might be able to build your own Xpad version from the source.
But this is a bit of work, the main steps are below.

Uninstall Xpad.
You need to install the dependencies to build Xpad (c compiler, autotools, intltool, GTK 3 sources, GTK3 sourceview source, bzr, and maybe more).

bzr branch lp:xpad
./autogen.sh
./configure
make
sudo make install

I might have forgotten some details, but this will get you started.

Or you wait until Xpad 5.4 arrives through the Ubuntu repositories.
You might be able to ask the maintainer of this package to upgrade, in the hope it will arrive sooner.
