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

Further discussion should really take place on the brainstorm page mentioned earlier (, 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.
