Get back close maximize and minimize button on the right side in ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10

From ubuntu 10.04 metacity is besing used as GTK2 default window manager. On that the close maximize and minimize button is on the left side of the title bar which seems very hard to catch at the first time, we all feel hard then. So it is the best practice to make it as it was before on the right side . :D
now lets make it as it was with a few steps.

Step 1:

Press Alt and F2 button of ur keyboard at a time. A box will appear on that box just type
" gconf-editor " [except the "" ] and hit ur enter button or press Run button of that box.

Step 2:
# Then u will get another box. From that box at the left side select apps and expand it by clicking the downward arrow sign.
# Next expand the metacity and then select general
# Now look at right side and find button_layout  and double click on it.
And on the value field just change it as I say ..
First put " : " this colon sign then minimize,maximize,close [with comma sign] or the order u want. and press enter button on ur keyboard.

You are done....

You got the buttons on the right side..
