Setup Mac style "Natural Scrolling" on Ubuntu

This is a super simple tip I got from OMG!Ubuntu! to reverse the scrolling on Ubuntu so that it acts like a Mac.

Press Ctrl+T to open a terminal. Then type the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:zedtux/naturalscrolling
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install naturalscrolling

Once that finishes, Open the program "Natural Scrolling" using the Dash Search and a little icon will appear in the application indicator area. Left click the icon and choose "Natural Scrolling. When it is turned on you will see a check mark next to it. If you want this enabled all the time, simply choose "Start on login" from the preferences menu.

Thank you cemmanouilidis for creating this simple, light, awesome utility!
