In Ubuntu 10.4 Lucid Lynx the default window button is located in the left side. Now we will show you how change that button from left to right without installing or downloading any scripts.

Here is the trick.

  1. Press alt+f2.
  2. Type gconf-editor.
  3. Select apps/metacity/general
  4. Look for button_layout and change the value in to this.

The button will change right then and then from left to right. if it wont change try logging out.
$ sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart

note: before colon (:) means the buttons are on left side and after colon (:) means the buttons are on the right side.

Celebrate SFD with us on September 15! I'll be celebrating 20 years of Linux with The Linux Foundation!
