Changing the Metacity button order

By Pratik Shivarkar | Labels: , , , ,

Do you ever wish that title bar buttons should be in another order? Mac OS users definitely prefer reverse order buttons over standard order buttons.

Here is a way to change the Title bar button order…

Your default Metacity title bar looks like this…Standard Title Bar

Simply execute following command..

gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout "close,maximize,minimize:menu"

Now you will have a Mac a like button order…

Mac a like bar

You can also try something else like…

gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout "menu,maximize:close,minimize"

Something different

In this sequence “ : ” serves as a separator between right hand side and left hand side…

If you want to switch back to standard layout, “menu:minimize,maximize,close” is the default layout..
