I turned my Ubuntu on this morning and for no reason the close, max and min buttons moved from the left side of the window to the right !!!

I don't know why but this happened to every theme (which is loads) on the PC.

Any one else had this ?, or know a fix ? cheers

I just fixed this..

First install this

sudo apt-get install gconf-editor

Then open it

gconf-editor

Now click onapps then metacity then click general button_ A dialog will open in the right of the window, now find the option button_layout and change the text next to it to close,minimize,maximize and this will fix it.

Also you can change the button order (eg minimize,maximize,close) if you wish.

Or add a drop down menu by doing this to put it in the right corner minimize,maximize,close:menu or menu:minimize,maximize,close for a left menu with buttons on the right.
