Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have removed the Global App Menu as I prefer to have the minimize, maximize, close buttons on the right side of each app. I did this with no problem in 12.04. I did an upgrade to 12.10 and noticed that Chrome, Chromium and Firefox all use the Global Menu.
I have disabled the Firefox extension. I removed the corresponding Firefox package but still only have a global menu.
I tried Gconf but apparently that does not work in 12.10. I then tried Dconf and found this fix on Google: org > gnome > desktop > wm > preferences, look for "button_layout" on the right panel. Here is the problem, after desktop, I do not have 'wm'.
I reset Unity and got a message saying something about wm is missing.
I rebooted and opened Chrome and still no fix. I then clicked maximize and once Chrome was not maximized anymore, the minimize, maximize, close buttons show up in Chrome. Same with Firefox. I then quickly realized this behavior is for all apps that are maximized.
Any ideas? I am truly stumped. Firefox and Chrome work fine in KDE Plasma and Gnome when maximized. Sorry for the long post!
