    Moving buttons back to the left?

    I ran this command line:
    Code:
    gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout --type string menu:minimize,maximize,close
    to move my buttons to the right and now want to move them back to the left. Is there a command line to do so?

    A graphical tool to make all these changes is Ubuntu Tweak. From a terminal:

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tualatrix/next
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-tweak-0
