Ubuntu 10.04 change menu button alignments

To move the menu buttons to the right side. Open gconf-editor

  • apps
    • Metacity
      • general“ → button_layout = “menu:minimize,maximize,close”

Move Ubuntu desktop window control buttons to the right:

gconftool-2 --set "/apps/metacity/general/button_layout" --type string "menu:minimize,maximize,close"

Switch back to desktop window control buttons to the left:

gconftool-2 --set "/apps/metacity/general/button_layout" --type string "close,minimize,maximize:"
