Changing Ubuntu Control Window Position

Since the ubuntu release of ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx, no unusual changes we see. These changes was the move of the control panel window (minimize, maximize, close) at top left, where the same view on the MacOS. Usually the window controls are located on the right, this would complicate the user who already has a habit of using the window controls in the upper right, but not for MacOS users because they are already accustomed to using the window controls on the left top. It is also still present in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Merkat. For those who are unfamiliar with the location of the window controls on the left can follow the steps as follows:
Position control window before revamped.

  • first step, try to press on the keyboard, Alt + F2 .
  • Then type, gconf-editor .
  • looks exactly the same as in the picture above. His name is Configuration Editor.
  • Then select Apps> Metacity> General> Button Layout
  • Change
  • close, minimize, maximize: be : minimize, maximize, close
  • As in the picture below, then press OK. So the position of the control window which was originally located on the left will turn to the right.
Hopefully useful.
