The action buttons on Ubuntu 10.04 has moved from the classical Windows inspired top-right corner to OSX inspired top-left.

Personally, using Chrome, which has it’s own action buttons on the right, it tend to get confusing. I also dual boot Win and Ubuntu so I’d like the same behaviour for the standard tasks, albeit I tend to use keyboard shortcuts.

Anyway – gconf-editor is the key! All applications are configurable, and so is this. It allows you to personally arrange the title buttons to your liking.

Run gconf-editor, and find apps/metacity/general/button_layout. Experiment! Allowed settings are: ‘menu’,’:’,’close’,’maximum’ and ‘minimum. Note the ‘:’ is the title and ‘menu’ is the window menu ( you know ALT-Spacebar ). Any combination is allowed.
