Shift Google Chrome buttons to the left

Google chrome still uses the old gconf file for it’s configuration.
If you like me use linux mint, but prefer the mac like configuration of buttons on the left, this is something that you would be interested in.

Manually :

Install gconf-editor

 sudo apt install gconf-editor 

open it up by typing gconf-editor.

Go to :  / apps / metacity / general /

and on the right find the button layout key setting.

the current string set there is expected to be : menu:minimize,maximize,close

change that to : close,minimize,maximize:menu

That’s it, you’re done.
