If you mean your XTerms are lacking a scrollbar, then try adding this
to your ~/.Xdefaults file:

   XTerm*saveLines: 500
   XTerm*scrollBar: true

Then restart X or run:

   xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults

Any new XTerms that you start should now have scrollbars. It's worth
checking the XTerm manpage for other resources that you may wish to
