One of the change in the Ubuntu 10.04 is the window buttons on the left side. We’ll show you how to move the buttons back to the right.
Press Alt+F2 to bring up the Run Application, enter “gconf-editor” in the text field, and click on Run.
The key that we want to edit is in apps/metacity/general.
Click on the + button next to the “apps” folder, then beside “metacity” in the list of folders expanded for apps, and then click on the “general” folder.
The button layout can be changed by changing the “button_layout” key. Double-click button_layout to edit it.
Change the text in the Value text field to:
menu:maximize,minimize,closeClick OK and the change will occur immediately
