    14.04 min/max/close buttons

    I've found tons of posts on how to move the min/max/close buttons to the right on 12.04 - 13.10, but none of those appear to work any more with 14.04. Even with dconf-editor when I can modify the button-layout setting it doesn't seem to do anything. Anyone know how to move those buttons to the right on 14.04?

    gconf-editor no longer appears to even have a button-layout setting, or apps->metacity for that matter.

    14.04 Trusty 'Unity' you can't, least not yet. If you have Trusty 'Unity' with Gnome Flashback you can.

    I've had the same success with Gnome 14.04 with gnome flashback, some other people have not been so lucky.

    Which desktop environment are you using?

    Guess I'll wait for the official release and hope there's a way then.

    It seems very odd to me that someone keeps making it so difficult to have those buttons where you want them.

    Using unity - though I'd be open to others, if I could figure out how to change the default desktop environment...

    You can retain Unity, just from the repos install Gnome Flashback, when you do reboot you have the option of 'Ubuntu', or 'Gnome flashback with compiz'.

    Maybe best to wait a bit for others to reply, the above is what I did. Strangely enough it worked

    Install unity-tweak-tool from the repos. Start the tool and then look for "Appearance". Click the "Window Controls". Under "Layout" choose "Left" or "Right" for the alignment.

    No dice on installing fallback gnome - I clearly have the setting the way I want it in dconf-editor, but it's just ignored. I am starting to like gnome3 a bit more though.

    Unity-Tweak tool doesn't do anything, I've switched it from left to right, logged in, logged out, rebooted, stood on my head... Nothin.

    Ubuntu-Tweak tool doesn't even show those settings for 14.04.

    You know off the top of my head I think with gnome-tweak-tool off to left you will see windows click that over on the right
    i think you might find what your looking for.
