Ubuntu 10.4 is live. I’ve been using Ubuntu for around 4 to 5 years, and I am a pretty happy user.
From my point of view, the big problem I found on this release (which I just installed 5 minutes ago) is that they changed the window buttons from the right to the left side of the window. I think 95% of the users are used to the buttons on the right side, and I don’t see the point on moving them to the left.
Anyway, I don’t like it, so I searched around, and I’ve found a quick and easy solution.
Press Alt+F2, then type gconf-editor and press enter. That’s for opening the configuration editor.
Once on this editor, in the item tree at the left, you have to look for this path app -> metacity -> general and you doubleclick on the field named button_layout.
Then, you have only to change the value field and put this:
You save the changes, and voila!! all the windows reconfigured again!
Now all the windows show the minimize, maximize and close buttons on the right again 😉
