View Full Version : [SOLVED] Moving buttons back to the left?

December 11th, 2011, 09:51 AM
I ran this command line:

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:

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