Solved Vertical scroll bar in QComboBox

But the scrolling is too slow, I need the classic vertical scrollbar like this (picked from this post:

You're not going to like this, but you simply should not populate a combobox for the user with 2000 items, it is not manageable! If you really have this many you should choose a different UI interface, e.g. use a
QCompleter. Then you won't have this issue.....
As @JonB says, 2000 items in combobox is not a good experience for the end user.
Its hard to navigate.
Anyway, you can try
which gives me a scrollbar also on linux that normally only has the up/down arrows using XFCE WM.

I had same problem on Windows when filling a combobox with almost 4000 lines (ICD10 diagnoses for a healthcare app), it works but you have to use the "classic" vertical scrollbar.
On Windows this means you cannot use Fusion style, instead use the VistaStyle for the combobox.
Thank you all,
Indeed QCompleter is the best alternative. However
is the solution I was looking for.
