    Yet another Unity config tool…

    I guess it may be “yet another Unity config tool” I haven’t searched around much for the others.  BUT- I quit using Ubuntu because of the new forced changes for a year- which was too long to use that junk Win 7, and this tool allows me to change the most annoying changes- universal menus and overlay scrollbar- I’m not using a phone I don’t need to “save” the eighth of an inch that the scrollbars take up!  Thanks!!!
