    Thanks for answering I would prefer a solution that is using the
    gconf-editor.

    So lets say I do this cause I do prefer them on the right, but in Unity does that mean when I maximize them that it will still go on the right near the chat icon? Has anyone done this?

    One can make them go to the right after changing some settings in gconf-editor,but that will be applicable only while the app window is not maximized.
    Maximizing the application window will shift all 3 again to unity's top panel on the left.This is the default behaviour in unity and thus far,there is no work-around for it.

    Vote for my Idea

    Thumbs up Re: How to move minimize, maximize and close to the right?

    Try this in terminal-

    Code:
    gconftool-s/
    apps/
    met>gconftool-
    s/apps/
    met>gconftool-
    s/apps/metacity/
    general/
    button_layout-t
    string
    menu:minimize,maximize,close
    this makes buttons move to right side in correct order.
    hope this helps.
    good luck.

    Thank you for the answers. I went with gconftool-2 --set "/apps/metacity/general/button_layout" --type string ":minimize,maximize,close"
    And it worked.
