Changing Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) Window Buttons Back To The Right

In Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx), the window buttons (minimize, maximize and close) are by default at the left of the window title like in Mac.

This is really disappointing when you upgrade from an older version of Ubuntu to this one.

This is certainly new, and will take some getting used to. An alpha-testing friend of mine said it took “a few hours” over one or two days to start using the buttons without thinking too much about it, but he still occasionally catches himself mousing toward the wrong side of a window. Time will tell whether this was a smart long-term move for Ubuntu.

But it’s really simple to solve that problem.



1-enter to the terminal
2-run "gconf-editor"
3-go to "/apps/metacity/general/"
4-double click "button_layout"
5-enter "menu:maximize,minimize,close"
6-done!
