The minimal layout has a settings button, the icon depends on your theme, but it should be the second button from the left.
Alternatives to change your layout are :
* trayicon menu -> settings
* "-l layout_id" option in the command line, the layout_id is the part between [] in layouts files
* deleting the line that begins with "Layout:" in your gmbrc

The "Playlist" layout should have a menu that contains an entry to open the settings.

Sorry for not replying sooner, if you still have this problem, the easiest way is to run "gmusicbrowser -cmd OpenPref" in a terminal, that will open the preferences dialog, you can then change the layout in the layouts tab.
As for the menu, in some layouts it is a button with a preference icon, some don't have a menu at all but should have at least a button that open the preferences dialog.
