Enable Horizontal and Natural Scrolling in Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail

By default, in Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, the natural scrolling and the horizontal scrolling are disabled, by default. In the previous Ubuntu versions, the horizontal scrolling could be activated via “Mouse and Touchpad” settings, but this feature is not available anymore.

Let’s start: Press Alt + F2 and type dconf-editor

From the left side, choose org –> gnome –> settings-daemon –> peripherals –> touchpad:

In the right window, thick horiz-scroll-enabled and natural-scroll.

    Awesome. As I hoped, there is a method other than installing an annoying tool via the ppa. They should make it possible to configure it via the usual GUI.
