In unity 2d, the buttons on a maximized window are by default placed above the launcher on autohide. TBH I hate it when stuff autohides, and was wondering if they can be moved (on a maximized window, minimized no problems) to the right side, under the Me Menu.

Possible? I have the dash on always visible. The only program that doesn't give me this problem is Chrome, because when i deselect "Use System Title and Bars" it puts the buttons right there under the Me Menu. Can't this be done for all programs?

Have you solved this issue? – pl1nk Jun 24 '12 at 23:05

I believe you can remove the "indicator-appmenu", and it will become as it was in Lucid, and not sticking to the panel on maximize,

as per this question.

Yes, Sorry, I just tested this out, the max, min, close buttons are still stuck to the unity panel, although the menu is no longer stuck. I'm looking through gnome-tweak but there's nothing to configure it. Hopefully someone else can help. – mloman Jan 9 '12 at 17:38
