I recently installed the new Ubuntu Remix 9.10 karmic Koala on my laptop.
I found that all windows where automatically maximized when open. I had showed you how to disable the auto-maximize feature of ubuntu remix earlier.
Another annoying feature was that the maximized windows doesn’t have the restore/maximize, minimize and close buttons on it.
If you need it just enable it as i have said below:
Press Alt + F2, enter gconf-editor,
Go to -> /apps/maximus/undecorate and unset it.
(i.e uncheck the check-box).
