Moving windows buttons to left side on KDE 4?

Hey all, I've been guessing around and can't seem to find an answer for this.

I'm using KDE 4 under Slackware 13.1, and I'd like to move the minimize, maximize, and close buttons to the left side of the windows titlebar. Is there any way to do this on KDE? I've looked under all the windows options, and the 'Buttons' section only contained a list that didn't seem to have what I was looking for.

I've only been using KDE for a couple of weeks, so I apologize if the answer is obvious, or if moving the buttons to the left is simply not an option. Any help would be appreciated.

This sounds like the thing you're looking for it was the "Use custom titlebar button positions" under the 'Buttons' section

Thanks, Snark1994, that did it. (= I looked right over it, as I was looking for more of a right side/left side toggle. The drag and drop method in KDE seems to give you a lot more options, which is nice.


buttons, titlebar
