I'm trying to use gconf-editor to make an adjustment to my Windows. In the past I had the close,min,max to the "RIGHT". Now I'd like to switch back to the "LEFT". The old way doesn't seem to be working for me. I tried gconf-editor, but I get errors. I did a fresh install of 11.10, but I had my home in another partition. Not sure if my old settings are causing the issue. Can anyone make a suggestion?

Try removing gconf-editor and all its configuration files and then reinstalling.



sudo apt-get --purge remove gconf-editor
sudo apt-get install gconf-editor


If that doesn't work, you should look to deleting old setting as these maybe causing many problems, including this one. I also have a separate /home partition but always erase config folders/files when upgrading to a new version.
