View Full Version : [ubuntu] Location of window triad

November 18th, 2010, 06:26 AM
I just upgraded from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 and notice that the Close, Park, and Fullscreen Triad on each displayed window is located at the upper left corner. I am accustomed to seeing it on the upper right. Is this something fixed in the new version or is it something that can be changed?

This is not a big deal but will take some getting used to.

That caused quite a stir leading up to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.

Simply changing the theme under "Systems -> Preferences -> Appearance"
will move the buttons to that theme's preferred position.

You can also manually override this in the Configuration Editor:

gconf-editor /apps/metacity/general/button_layout

asmore82, thanks for the response. I suspected there may be some remedy but am rather new to Ubuntu.
