Can I put the title bar buttons in Unity on the right side somehow, or is that impossible?
You do this using gsettings:
gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ':minimize,maximize,close'
or gconf-editor which has more complicated instructions listed at:
FWIW, hopefully this will save someone else who is googling this issue the time.. Ubuntu Tweak nor gconf-editor will fix this problem. Seems to be a known issue with Unity. Seems there is no solution in the works either.
Closest thing I saw to a somewhat resolution. Seems to be pawned off on Unity:
Ubuntu Tweak can do that for you in the Windows Management Settings. You can get it at http://ubuntu-tweak.com
Look the last post. I could help you...
