I have suffered this weird button for a few days. It is really annoying to use customized icon themes (default one is fine).

Does anyone know what this is? I want to remove it.



Result of

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

should be 'appmenu:minimize,maximize,close'

if not

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout appmenu:minimize,maximize,close

I decided to get into dconf and see this configuration. Question solved.

    Could you clarify? Did you reset it to the default value? – dsSTORM Oct 27 '18 at 12:39
  • Yep. It's been illuminated on the image. – neot Oct 27 '18 at 13:15
