NameBar puts the name list of the top-most maximized or the focused window in the gnome-panel so that it doesn't take up precious space elsewhere. It's meant to be used with maximus from ubuntu netbook remix, that removes the window border (alternatively you can just fiddle around with compiz decorating settings). Together with DockBar it works as an alternative to ubuntu netbook remix's window picker.

Dust-ish theme is made from images taken from metacity theme Dust by Rico Sta. Cruz and Kido Mariano.
New Wave-ish theme is made from images taken from metacity theme New Wave by Anton Kerezov and.
Human-ish theme is made from images taken from Ubuntu's theme Human.

- install python-gnome2-desktop
$ sudo apt-get install python-gnome2-desktop
- copy namebar.py to /usr/bin/ and GNOME_NameBarApplet.server to /usr/lib/bonobo/servers
$ sudo cp namebar.py /usr/bin
$ sudo cp GNOME_NameBarApplet.server /usr/lib/bonobo/servers
- copy the content of themes/ to /usr/share/namebar/themes (or alternatively copy them to ~/.namebar/themes)
$ sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/namebar/themes
$ sudo cp themes/* /usr/share/namebar/themes
- restart the gnome-panel
$ killall gnome-panel
- add Namebar applet to panel

You can run it in window (meant for debugging purposes):
namebar.py run-in-window

Ubuntu packages:
Scott Barnes (reeve) is kind enough to maintain deb packages for NameBar, though they are occasionally out of date. They are available in his repository.

Q: Why are the name of the program in a undreadable white color?
A: You should change the color to something darker if you use a bright panel. Go to namebar's preference dialog and change the preference.

Q: How do I get to namebar's preference dialog?
A: Right-click on namebar's handle (that's the dots or lines on the left of namebar). Choose preference from the menu. Sometimes you have to double-right-click the handle to get the menu, don't ask me why.



- Namebar now supports themes for the maximize/minimize/close buttons.
- Three themes are included: Dust-ish, Human-ish and New Wave-ish
- The buttons change depending on the state of the window shown in namebar (focused or unfocused and maxmimized or unmaxmimized).
- Namebar can be customised to have different colored text if the window shown in namebar are focused or unfocused. The text can be normal or bold.
- You can now bring up the window by clicking on namebar.
- Lots of bugfixes!

- If NameBar is set to only show itself with maximized windows, then if there are one or more maximized windows on that screen, it shows the topmost of the maximized window, even if a non maximized window is on top of it.
- Added option not to show minimize/maximize/close buttons.
- Button layout are set according to metacity settings (gconf /apps/metacity/general/button_layout).
- Preference dialog should work with gtk older than 2.14 (Hardy) now.

- It's possible to set the width of NameBar Applet from the preference dialog
- Every change made in the preference dialog are supposed to take effect immediately now

First release

(NameBar 0.5)

 Integration with Compiz

 by chadoliver on: Mar 24 2010
Score 50%

First, thank you for the wonderful idea and implementation. It does save a lot of space.
If it makes any difference, I am running ubuntu 9.10.
My problem (and the thing that eventually caused me to remove it from the panel) is that when switching workspaces (and therefore changing which program has focus), the panel does not change to reflect the new focus.
For example, I have firefox open on one virtual desktop, and a terminal opened on the other. When I switch from the 'firefox' desktop to the 'terminal' desktop using the compiz desktop cube, the panel still shows firefox. This makes it very hard to close things.
I don't know if this issue also appears when using the default virtual desktops (accessed by a button on the bottom panel).

Well, I'm not much of a programmer, so I can't offer any hard solutions. But I assume what you want is for the namebar panel to refresh when the desktop cube is rotated.

Thanks for all your help!
(P.S., if I didn't make this clear: this is a feature request, not a demand!)

 Hide buttons

Thank you so much. This is what I've been looking for.

One problem that seems to happen to me, when I uncheck 'Show minimize/maximize/close buttons', the name of the program also disappears. The name comes back only when I check show buttons.

Except this, everything is wonderful :)

 More customizations

I really like dockbarx, global menu, and namebar.

I hope someday my panel will look like this:

Main Menu


Namebar (just the left side)

Global Menu (with all apps working like kde apps, firefox, etc.)

Namebar (just the right side) > System Tray (and/or Important App menus like Canocial is proposing)

a comprehensive system monitor menu (not yet developed)

Comprehensive Weather menu (not yet developed)

Date / Time (linked to the app of my choosing [ie. google calendar])

There might be a show desktop in there too even though I don't use it :)

I'm sorry, I've stopped working on NameBar. I have too little time for both NameBar and DockbarX, the interest for NameBar is low and Window Applets seems to do everything NameBar does anyway (and does some things better).

Aw man, that sucks :( I really think namebar is great. In combo with maximus and DockbarX it can't be beat for maximizing screenspace while maintaining usability.

I just tried upgrading to 10.10 with namebar and it stopped working.

Window Applets *is not* the same, I don't get the minimize/maximize buttons. :(

Anyone know of another replacement?

forget my comments regarding WindowApplets. I installed on Maverick using the Lucid build and it does work well.

Now installing on my Lucid box :)
