How to move buttons to the right in Ubuntu 14.04

In Ubuntu 14.04, the Ubuntu Tweak tool does not offer the option to move the buttons to the right. In order to do this install the Unity Tweak Tool from the Ubuntu Software Library. To run Ubuntu Tweak enter at a terminal:
sudo ubuntu-tweak

Install unity-tweak-tool from the repros. Start it by navigating to System Tools, Preferences Unity Tweak Tool . Start the tool and then look for "Appearance". Click the "Window Controls". Under "Layout" choose "Left" or "Right" for the alignment. Screen shots for this are below. Enjoy.
