I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 and if I open a window I want to double click on icon on the left hand side of the window in order to close the window which is the default behavior in Windows.
Just yesterday I posted a how-to about this on my blog. It applies to compiz as well as to metacity, but the instructions given are for compiz. I'll sum up what you would need to do here:
But if this seems too complicated to you, you could always switch to xfce or kde.
There is no configuration setting in Gnome or Compiz that will let you do this. Your best bet is to use the close button and get used to it (benefit: works even on Windows).
