I've just installed the latest version of gnome-shell and it doesn't have window buttons? Is there an entry in gconf-editor that I can change to enable those buttons? In general, how do you tweak gnome-shell?

What do you mean by windows buttoms? Minimiza and maximize buttons? – fpmurphy1 Apr 18 '11 at 4:36

You can do a certain amount of tweaking using gnome-tweak-tool. In Fedora 15 you can use yum to install it. No sure if it is yet available for other GNU/Linux distributions.

Thanks, but at the time of writing my question, this tool was not available. – Baha Apr 19 '11 at 15:10
