[manjaro] change window buttons layout

August 18, 2019 Leave a comment

Problem
On my desktop I have a Manjaro that I installed years ago. It’s a rolling release distro, meaning I get all the updates, but the graphical interface is not always updated. For instance, I installed a new Manjaro on a laptop, and Manjaro looks much better on my laptop than on my old desktop.
On a newly installed Manjaro, the window buttons are on the right side, but on my desktop they are on the left. How could I unify them and move the buttons to the right?

Solution
I found the solution in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVfHDyWcgSA . In short: start the Settings Editor, select xfwm4 on the left, edit “button layout”, and provide the string “O|SHMC” (without quotes).
