I recently installed the Pantheon DE to test out, and wasn't too fond of it so I switched back to Gnome. However, even after uninstalling Pantheon, window title bars are still using the Pantheon style.

This screenshot is my title bar right now.

How do I revert this change?

I've tried changing the theme in Gnome Tweak Tool, as well as resetting Gnome entirely, but it won't reset.


Open Terminal and run

gsettings reset org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout

This should fix the order and placement of the buttons.

  • I'm having this same issue, but so far this solution hasn't worked. Just relogged to see if it fixes it. – RolandiXor Mar 16 at 4:13
