moving minimize,maximize buttons

I have been using Linux off and on for the past 3 years and I always seem to forget what I use to move the position of my close buttons and etc. They are default on the right side of the screen but I would rather them be on the left. I remember there is a thing you can do from the run command in KDE to do so but I do not remember what exactly it is.

I don't know a command, but I know you can edit this in the kde control panel...

control panel-> apperance & themes-> window decorations

Then go to the "Button" tab and then check "use custom title bar postions", then move them to left using the dialog box.
