    Window buttons moved to the right

    I couldn't wait until Quantal was out of the last beta so I installed it. Beyond an nVidia glitch, I have only one problem: the window buttons (minimize, maximize, and close) have moved back to the right hand side of the window, and I can't get them moved to the left.

    I've tried with ubuntu-tweaks, and I've tried to enter "close,minimize,maximize:" in the "button_layout" field in gconf-editor's apps/metacity/general tab, but to no avail.

    How do I move the buttons back to the left hand side?

    Yes, that solved my problem (well, actually I used the terminal version in the second reply).

    I was already a bit skeptical of dconf to begin with when I realized that gconf-editor has been uninstalled during the upgrade.
