Window Buttons to the right side

After install of lucid I thought c'mon give it a try with the left hand window buttons but now I have enough. I just can't get used to it. Some search led me to a nice page with screenshots of all needed steps. But it's so easy that for somebody who hasn't just started with ubuntu doesn't need such instructions. It boils down to some metacity settings:

  1. Fire up gconf-editor via ALT-F2
  2. Navigate to apps->metacity->general
  3. Change the value of button_layout to :maximize,minimize,close

In other words: just move the colon from the right side of the button names to left side.
