Fix Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid minimize/maximize/close button position

29 May 2010

I tweeted this on first install, but that’s like throwing it into wind if you ever want to remember it (i.e. when I install on a new PC).

This leftist conspiracy must be fought people! Here’s the one liner you’re looking for:

gconftool -s /apps/metacity/general/button_layout -t string "menu:minimize,maximize,close"

That is all. Fight The Power! Represent The People! Other Nonsensical Slogan!
