Ubuntu window controls

Want them to be in a more familiar layout?

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

Gives the menu on the left, then the rest on the right.

Ubuntu winbind not working?

Have you been trying to get winbind working on Ubuntu, and not having any luck? After the usual:


sudo apt-get install winbind


You also need to install libnss-winbind as well:


sudo apt-get install libnss-winbind


That should get it working, when combined with the change of the hosts: line in /etc/nsswitch.conf from:


hosts: files dns




hosts: files dns wins


And presto, it should start working.
