I recently installed the mac theme for Ubuntu 12.10 from Noobslab. The installation went properly and I am now running the Mac theme. But I still don't have the scrollbars and buttons for Mac. This is how I would want my complete Mac theme to look like.

Is it possible? If so how?

As far as scrollbars are concerned have you removed overlay-scrollbars ? – sagarchalise Mar 30 '13 at 17:12
Yeah I have done that. – Akas Antony Apr 3 '13 at 10:29

Try typing following command in terminal:

gsettings set com.canonical.desktop.interface scrollbar-mode normal

It should fix scrollbars to the normal mode.

Anyway, I think you won't get MacOS-like scrollbars and buttons, because it looks like they are not included in theme from noobslab (if you are using this theme).
