Hack your Ubuntu 11.04


Yes, the new Ubuntu is here!

This is what I usually do right after I install Ubuntu:

{ Switch the window buttons back to the right hand side }

Press Enter and navigate to /apps/metacity/general/button_layout
Change the button_layout to :minimize,maximize,close

In the Terminal, type:
sudo apt-get install mc build-essential gnome-themes gnome-themes-extras gnome-themes-more startupmanager shutter
