Moving window Buttons in Ubuntu/Linux
Posted 11 May 2010 - 12:12 PM
The first thing I noticed is that my Maximize/Minimize/Close buttons are now in the left side of the screen and not the right.
I did some Google searching and found that they did this as an adoption from the Mac platform.
This was not just an Ubuntu change apparently.
So, to move them back if you are used to using Windows and not Mac.
1. Press Alt+F2 to get your run window.
2. Type gconf-editor
3. Click Run.
4. Navigate to apps/metacity/general
5. Open the button_layout key.
6. Change the value to menu:minimize,maximize,close
You can organize any way you want but for me this put the menu on the left and the buttons on the right.
You can leave off menu for a cleaner look.

I had some problems with the Gnome Panel. The one with the date/ clock, etc. The first few bootups I had missing items such as shut down, sound control and the email notifier. Finally
was able to get them locked down. Looking around on the web, I was one of many experiencing that. I noticed in the last set of updates that one of the applets was updated. Maybe that fixed
the problem for others.
