    Mac scrolling with mouse available?

    I'm so confused that I don't really know what I'm asking...

    I just formatted an old Windows 7 laptop and installed Ubuntu 13.10 last night.

    I'd like to dispose of Windows style scrolling and replace it with Mac/iOS scrolling.

    Is that the 'natural' scrolling that I see as a touchpad option? I'm way 'old school' and prefer an external mouse over a touchpad.

    The laptop doesn't appear to have an internal Bluetooth adapter so using a Magic Mouse doesn't seem to be possible.

    My Microsoft external mouse works fine except for the scroll direction.

    I've done some searching, but am not to the level of understanding I need to even understand modifying files.

    Or should I just get over it and adapt to Ubuntu defaults?

    Thanks for the reply and reference and a way to get back to this thread.

    I'd 'lost' this forum and couldn't get back to it for some reason.

    I found a serviceable solution in a reference to a program called 'NaturalScrolling' that seems to be working out.

    Is there a way to mark this query 'solved'? I thought I saw an option like this last night, but can't seem to locate it at the moment.

    Thanks again for the assistance.
