    minimize, expand/contract, close - icons - relocate?

    I have been using MS since Win 3 and 3 little icons have become grained in to how I toggle the window.

    The 3 icons in Windows are at the top right corner - minimize, expand/contract, close. In Ubuntu the same three icons are at the top left corner.

    Is there an app that will move the icons to the right in Ubuntu?

    Thanks Greg

    I know of a command:
    Code:
    gconftool -s /apps/metacity/general/button_layout -t string menu:minimize,maximize,close

    And back to the left:
    Code:
    gconftool-2 --set "/apps/metacity/general/button_layout" --type string "close,minimize,maximize:"
