This is probably done with the theme people are using. I've had them differ between themes for me as well. So you have to search a theme that has it. Or maybe you can set it in the kde control center.

Yes. It's in windows decorations.

I'm guessing, it's the Window Decoration they're using. Since you using Gnome, check out Gnome-look.org. Quite often, you'll see the same deco with several variations, such as the buttons on the left instead of the right. I'm not a Gnome user myself, so I'm not familiar with all the options for Window Decos(Metacity in Gnome?).

I have successfully done this (i.e. placing the widgets, not skinning them) with gnome 1 and sawfish (`crux' theme). I haven't tried w. gnome2 & sawfish--and I can't seem to find the `theme options' w. gnome2/metacity/crux;

So, it *can* be done w. gnome, but I think it's wm specific.

In any case, good luck, and sorry for not being more helpful
