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.
sudo apt install gconf-editor
open it up by typing gconf-editor.
Go to : set /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:
That’s it, you’re done.
