Have you tried running the following command:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout 'minimize,maximize,close:'

Let me know how it goes!

  • Thank you.

    I am not sure but, my ui is xfce, your commands looks like it’s for gnome.

    Do you recommend remove xfce and install gnome?

    I only follow the steps in D.O droplet starter blog.
