Currently, my window decorations are in the top left as per the default Ubuntu, but I have reordered them to "Minimize, Maximize, Close" However on Unity Desktop, when I maximize my window, and the Unity Panel takes over window decorations, It switches back to the default "Close, Minimize, Maximize" I tried poking around gconf and couldn't find anything, anybody have a tweak?


Can you file a bug for this over at https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity


I don't think you can do that. Ayatana indicators have been designed with consistency in mind and one of the elements of a consistent UI is permanent position of indicators. I don't think you can reorder the elements of the unity panel at all. You can remove some if you like but reordering is just not possible (AFAIK).

  • I think the question was referring to window control buttons (close, minimmise, maximise) and not indicators. – Mark Shuttleworth Jan 28 '11 at 3:00
  • Well, everything in the unity-panel follows the same rules. :P – Owais Lone Jan 31 '11 at 17:18
