Re-aligning window controls in Ubuntu

Okay, so I’m not much into writing how-tos, mainly because most things have usually been written by the time I get around to ’em. However, a persistent grouse with Lucid Lynx was the unfamiliar grouping of window control buttons to the left of the pane.

The stuff was set aright in under a minute.

gconf-editor at the terminal.
At the configuration editor window that comes up, browsed to the Apps ->metcity ->general and then changed the button-layout value in the right pane.
It goes something like maximise, minimise, close:
The colon demarcates the alignment. So, simply putting the control names to the right of the colon made things back to normal. 🙂
