Comment 81 for bug 532633

The command gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/general/button_layout --type string "menu:minimize,maximize,close" (as referred to in both the title & the bug description) reverts the button order *and* the position to how it was before the update changed it. This bug report is referring to both of these issues as they were *both* changed by the same update. That is the reason this was made a *master* bug report. Furthermore, this bug (or more correctly, this "difference of opinion" as stated by sabdfl) *is* related to light-themes as the change was introduced by the light-themes package. See http://changelogs.ubuntu.com/changelogs/pool/main/l/light-themes/light-themes_0.1.5.4/changelog

Further discussion should really take place on the brainstorm page mentioned earlier (http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/idea/23899/), not on the bug report(s). If too many non productive comments (e.g. comments that are not adding new, relevant information) are added to the bug reports, they become unwieldy & make it very difficult for developers to see relevant comments through all of the noise.
