Gnome: How to change the sequence of the window control buttons

After changing the theme in Ubuntu, I’ve got the window control buttons (maximize, minimize, close) in the order different from the previous theme and also from the Mac OS I have to live with at home. This is inconvenient, but we’re in Linux, aren’t we? So:

  1. Run gconf-editor (configuration editor).
  2. Go to apps > metacity > general.
  3. Edit button_layout according to your needs.
