Change close, minimize, maximize and menu icon order

If you want to change the order of minimize, maximize, close and menu icons in the title bar, follow the steps below

Press Alt+F2 to bring the run application dialog box. Type gconf-editor

Configuration editor will open. Go to /apps/metacity/general/button_layout

If you look close at the button_layout key, you will see four items, minimize, maximize, close and menu separated by coma and colon.



All the items on left side of colon appears on left side of the title bar and all the items on right side of the colon appears on the right side of the title bar.

So if you double click it and change it to minimize,maximize,close:menu

the icons in your title bar will resemble Mac OS.
