Enable minimize and maximize buttons on Chromium

#1 Post by rich » Sat May 26, 2018 2:35 pm

Do you prefer to save a little vertical screen space on Chromium by using the native window decorations, but find that you miss having a minimize and maximize window button? This is what I'm talking about:

Out of the box, Chromium appears to be reading the Gnome Shell default environment settings, where only the Close window button is normally shown. On MX, we can easily adjust this by entering the following command into a terminal:

Code: Select all

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout ':minimize,maximize,close'
Note - you may need to install the package libglib2.0-bin if the command fails

The difference is plain to see!
