Ubuntu: No Minimize/Maximize buttons in Gnome 3



Question:

I have installed Ubuntu Gnome 14.04

The problem is :

Nautilus(I think it called "Files" in gnome-shell) has no Minimize/Maximize button !

I have enabled gnome-tweak-tool -> Windows -> Maximized/Minimized, but Nautilus has not Minimize/Maximize buttons!

enter image description here

Any ideas?


Solution:1

hm... Actually there's an option for minimize/maximize it's kinda hidden, when you click on nautilus top panel you get:

I'll add more solutions, when/if I find.


Solution:2

So I just noticed that you used tweak tool but didn't notice you are asking about Nautilus. As far as I know after I did some research before that you can't do that. You can look on this extension or you can try Nemo. I personally use keyboard shortcuts to navigate.


Solution:3

Install Elementary theme (ftom Elementary OS). This will move close button to the left corner and appear maximize in right.

You will get like this:

But if you select other themes after Elementary theme, layout don't save and will back to default in the next log in. I think, it possible to copy layput settings from Elementary theme and put it in any other.


Solution:4

Solved mine with

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

gsettings is a command line tool, by using it we are setting the property of desktop window manager's button layout to ":minimize,maximize,close" which will then have all three buttons instead of only close i.e a cross button
