In metacity I want to be able to middle click on the title bar and close it. I tried going into gconf-editor and changing the action-middle-click-titlebar value to "close", but it does nothing. Second thing I want is to change the way the unity bar on the top reacts, but I'm not sure where I would go to do such a thing. Stuff I want to do include making it so I don't have to hover over the application name on the unity bar to see the tools, perhaps removing the application name all together, and remove the close, minimize, and maximize buttons which are to me just visually obstructive. Thanks.

Unity is based on Compiz, not Metacity. –  Adam Byrtek Apr 22 '11 at 23:17
Unity still uses metacity. –  Michael Apr 22 '11 at 23:21
On my machine Unity uses Compiz. Maybe it uses Metacity in the fall-back 2D mode, I haven't tried. –  Adam Byrtek Apr 22 '11 at 23:30
nope, it doesn't in 3D mode. –  RolandiXor Apr 23 '11 at 4:42
Have you tried messing with the compiz settings? –  bntser Apr 23 '11 at 17:37
