    Moving Buttons To Left - Keep Moving Back!

    I like the buttons on the left. I'm running 10.04 & I know how to move them. The problem is that changing themes will move them back right. OK, if the new theme has them on the right that's OK. But going back to the other theme doesn't change them back. They don't seem to be controlled by the theme, or I'm just not doing it right. Anyway, I'm wondering how to make them stay there.
    People who spend their time telling others what can't be done only annoy those of us out there doing it.

    If you want to make the chosen button layout "mandatory", see this earlier post:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=10602275

    If you want to change the button layout of the themes independendly, modify its "index.theme" file, located at the toplevel of the theme's directory. You need to open it from within the text editor!
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Type=X-GNOME-Metatheme
    Name=Ambiance
    Comment=Ubuntu Ambiance theme
    Encoding=UTF-8
    
    [X-GNOME-Metatheme]
    GtkTheme=Ambiance
    MetacityTheme=Ambiance
    IconTheme=ubuntu-mono-dark
    CursorTheme=DMZ-White
    ButtonLayout=close,minimize,maximize:
    Greetings.

    The change you are making isn't for the theme. It's for the enviroment. When you change themes it changes whatever setting you made in gconf-editor. Thats why when you switch away then switch back it reverts to the other side.
