I am using KDE plasma as my DE, but I have to use some GTK applications. Is it possible to change button-layout in GTK window titlebar?

I want to make the title bar only left close button. Because I used gnome for some days, I know I can use dconf editor to make it. I found something,


I changed it, but it doesn't work, then I realized that it's only for GNOME.

So could you tell me how to solve it? thx.

For GTK-3 applications you can try setting the key gtk-decoration-layout in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini.

For example:

# ~/.config/gtk-3.0/settings.ini

The gsettings command can be used to apply these settings without restarting the desktop environment:

gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences button-layout :close
