    Question [SOLVED] Putting the menu/window buttons back where I had them in 12.04.

    12.10's GNOME fallback session has overwritten my changes to the window min/max/close buttons (putting them back to the left Mac-style) and this time it doesn't seem to be a Metacity key (the key it still there in Metacity).

    Is there any way to change this?

    In dconf-editor > org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences
    It will appear to be set as you want but it's being overridden. So set to something else then reset to how you want.
    Note that the "Set to Default" & 'Default:" are Not the same in use

    Screen 1 - as normally seen
    Screen 2 - after resetting off, then back to above

    Thanks! That helped me a lot? Question... I know this isn't entirely a new thing (using dconf) but this looks a lot like a registry to me and that is a nightmare in Windows.
