 +====== Move Window Buttons Back to the Right in Ubuntu 10.04 ======
  
 +After upgrading to Ubuntu 10.04 you may notice one of the more controversial changes in Ubuntu 10.04, which is to move the close, minimize, and maximize buttons from the right side of the window to the left side.
 +
 +No worries. You can easily move the buttons back with a single command line adjustment to the gnome config.
 +
 +  gconftool -s /​apps/​metacity/​general/​button_layout -t string menu:​maximize,​minimize,​close
 +
 +That's it, your buttons should be back where you like them.  You can also re-order them however you like or add a spacer. ​ Here's another example.
