    1. Press 'alt+f2' keys to open run window
    2. In run window type 'gconf-editor' and then click run to open configuration editor window
    3. Explore 'apps > metacity > general'

    4. Select button-layout on the right-pane double click on the 'close,minimize,maximize:' on it's right side and edit it as 'menu:minimize,maximize,close'. Now the buttons should be reached on the right side

    Ubuntu Tweak makes this (and many other things) very easy, no matter what theme you choose.

    Code:

    Now the key to this is the : it moves it to the right you can move each min, max, close in whatever order you want.
    Thank You! I was almost ready to go back to Mint if I had to keep the buttons on the left, it was a real aggravation. I have come back to Ubuntu more for the community and its mission than the actual operating system, which I like.
