Minimize button closes window.

Just updated from FC5 to 6. My problem occurs with any window: terminal, firefox, computer, etc. When I press the minimize button, it closes the window/application. I have a workspace switcher, and it does not minimize to that either. Anyone got any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Minimize button closes window.

How did you add it again? I was trying to follow these instructions but they relate to Fedora 16:


Unfortunately it's moved:

Step 3. Go to / -> desktop -> gnome -> shell -> windows

shell is not part of gnome anymore. Anybody know how to get maximise / minimise back? I'm amazed that it's been pulled from the default install.
