ubuntu 10.04 tweaking Nautilus control

Ubuntu 10.04 got released recently.They changed the placement of the minimize,maximize and close button on the Nautilus explorer. This was quite annoying since i use both Windows and ubuntu. Here is a way to tweak it and bring the placement to the traditional fashion.
1)Press alt+F2
2)Type gconf-editor
3)Go to apps->metacity-->general
4) Edit the key "button_layout" to "menu:minimize,maximize,close"

And you are done!!


  1. Ok, i am planning to try installing ubuntu on my lappy.. where shall i start from ?
