How to get "normal" scrollbars in Ubuntu Unity

I hate the little scrollbar in Ubuntu because on a laptop, it's harder to get precise control of the cursor to hit the few-pixel-width area (the orange bit in the first image below).

To get "normal" scrollbars, type this command:
gsettings set com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode normal

Should you want to get the Ubuntu-style scrollbar back, reset the parameter:
gsettings reset com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode 


Move Emacs scrollbar to the right

By default, the Emacs scrollbar is on the left. To move it to the right, there is a Customize option scroll-bar-mode. In your .emacs file, if there isn’t already a line with custom-set-variables, add the following:
      '(scroll-bar-mode (quote right)))

If you already have a custom-set-variables section, just add the appropriate line as above.
