change window control button order and position in gnome

This is an old tip. Customize the position and order of the gnome window control buttons in ubuntu:
  1. Select "Applications" > "System Tools" > "Configuration Editor". (Alternatively you can hit Alt+F2 to bring up the 'Run' dialog and type in "gconf-editor")
  2. Select "Apps" > "metacity" > "general".
  3. Edit the setting "button_layout". The allowed entries that I know of are "minimize" "maximize" "close" "menu" separated by a comma ",". A colon ":" indicates the middle of title bar: anything to the left will be on the left of title bar and vice versa.
If you know of any other settings please comment.
