Changing the menu buttons positions on Ubuntu 12.10


I'm still setting up my Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal). Let's change the menu buttons (minimize, maximize, close) position to the right (again).

Open your Terminal
$ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'menu:minimize,maximize,close'


Ubuntu 12.10 menu buttons positions

It is supposed to change without logout, if you have any problem, try to execute it as root and logout

Best Regards,
