I know I can edit gconf to move the [Minimize,Maximize,Close] buttons back to the right-hand side, but is there a way to do this for all users?
Ideally at install time so I don't have to explain this to every user every time I set up a new machine.

I don't know about install time, but when new users are created, the files from
/etc/skel are copied to the new home directory. You could add a file
with the contents
<?xml version="1.0"?> <gconf> <entry name="button_layout" mtime="1273173410" type="string"> <stringvalue>:minimize,maximize,close</stringvalue> </entry> </gconf>
Or you could create the perfect user-setup (let's name him
perfectuser) on a new account, and replace
That way, each new user you create would have the same configuration as
Maybe the install CD could also be modified in a similar way?
To change the setting for all users, you could write a script that adds
<entry name="button_layout" mtime="1273173410" type="string"> <stringvalue>:minimize,maximize,close</stringvalue> </entry>
Download UbuntuTweak go to Window Manager Settings and click "Right"
Edit: I'm not exactly sure if this does it for all users but it is easy.
