I'm not comfortable with autohiding auto-sliding scroll bar button in some gnome based applications (like gedit). Is there any way to restore a normal scroll bar? similar to one in KDE applications (like kate) or Windows applications.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Please have a look at the first two answers here: askubuntu.com/questions/34214/…. The second answer has a way to disable the overlay scrollbar globally with one command. –  roadmr Sep 23 '13 at 15:06
