Ubuntu :: Move The Window Control Buttons When The Window Is In Full Screen Mode?
May 3, 2011
How do I move the Window control buttons when the window is in full screen mode? I.e.: I know how to go into gconf-editor:
gconf-editor --> apps --> metacity --> general --> button layout = ":minimize,maximize,close"
(I've intentionally disabled the menu...)
What I want is my window controls to be on the right side of the window when the window is in full screen mode.
Also I've had an issue with the Unity dockbar glitching out. I can still click on the buttons (i.e. the logout button) but it displays like a nintendo game inserted crooked. Is there a way to 'restart' unity without log out/ log in?
Any one else experienced any glitches with unity auto hiding/showing?
How to move the Windows control button ( Minimize, Maximize , Close) Buttons back to the conventional place; top right corner of the screen ?I can't imagine why they have changed the place of this button from the conventional place.
I usually used ubuntu tweak to move the buttons to another side, but when i customized one theme, i could not change the button positions by using ubuntu tweak. So is there any other way i could change the button positions?
I realize that this may be a nit-picky complaint, but why did you guys move the window control buttons from the upper right corner to the upper left corner? Is there any way that I can move them back? They weren't this way in 9.10 or before, and they aren't this way on any of the computers that I work with at my job.
I have found a few topics that touch on the problem I'm having but the solution won't work for me.
I am running a 800x480 desktop with Gnome, many windows are cut off at the bottom and I cannot click on the buttons. The standard reply to this problem seems to be hold alt and left click drag the window up.
That works just fine, the twist here is I'm accessing the desktop through a touch-screen (via vnc on an android phone) and I don't have an alt button to hold, dragging is also kind of tough.. I realize it may just be the limitations of my device, but it can't hurt to ask!
I am using vmware and virtualbox for experimenting with different linux distros and for using windows... When I switch to full screen, the upper portion(about 50px from top) of system becomes unusable because I am not able to click with my mouse anywhere there. So ubuntu's top panel becomes unaccesible and for vmware, once it becomes full screen I am not able to minimize/restore/close it.
In full screen mode, looking at the mouse cursor, it seems to be controlled by guest system when in full screen but as soon as I move it to top of the screen, the host machine takes control of it and then I cannot access any top panels or vmware toolbar. Is there any solution to this problem... Please let me know if more information is needed from my side.I am using opensuse 11.3, KDE4.4.4, vmware 3.1.2/virtualbox 3.2.10. The problem is for both vmware and virtualbox.
i just installed openSuse and i have very little experience with linux OS. I used this guide to setup my two monitors and they are both running ok but i have the following problem:My mouse pointer can go to the second monitor without a problem, but i can't move a window there. When i move the window to the edge of the screen it just resizes it. it doesn't move it to the next screen.
I am new to debian. While I am playing a video in vlc or in any other player its playing well in small sized window, but if i am making it full screen the video is getting blur...blinking..getting slow..but sound is okay.
I just rebuilt my fedora box and I'm having some problems getting dual monitors to work. First, I can't reposition my secondary monitor to be on the left. It thinks it's on the right. I can use xrandr to fix this, but that is annoying. Is there no way to do this in the display properties? Second, maximizing a window makes it go across all screens. I unchecked this option in the display properties.I also unchecked the one for letting windows be in multiple monitors at once, but this still happens.
I've been Googling all day and cannot find the answer. I find all the "GUI" ways to do it through Gnome and KDE but I'm not using either...I have an EEE PC set to boot up automatically to openbox and want Firefox to start after that in a full screen openbox window.I've tried adding the firefox command to ~/.initrc but it won't execute. I tried the command in .profile. This brings up firefox on a black screen without openbox.Firefox comes up fine when executed from the openbox menu.
I have asked for a video capturing software before but recommend a GOOD screen recorder where you can select the window/window size the axis and also a good editing software which will render/export into FULL 720p HD
I have noticed that,in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat,the windows have their 3 buttons[maximize(a square),close(x) and minimize(-)] at the left(like in MacOS),while in earlier Ubuntu versions(for example,8.04 Hardy Heron),these buttons are at the right(like in the Windows operating system).Why did the developers of Ubuntu do this change?
close buttons on the left with xfce4? I do not want to use the system boarders, I want to use the compact mode, that is the point of using chrome. I know it can be done, that is how it is in gnome with the Ambiance theme and such. I have already gotten all the other buttons on the left, but the chromium ones wont budge.
I upgraded to 10.04 but problems started very quickly: I can see my desktop but when I start an application, there are no window borders or buttons to close/minimize that application! They just vanished. Also, opened windows don't appear on the taskbar, so I can't switch between windows, not even with ALT + TAB. The mouse isn't an arrow anymore, but a dark cross :s
Some specifications: Dell vostro 1000, ATI Radeon IGP Xpress 1150 (128mb shared), AMD64 Turion Here is what I did during the upgrade: everything default, except for once, when it asked me what to do with menu.lst (keep the old one or replace it with the newer version) I chose "replace" (default was to keep the old one). Can that be the reason?
