Description:

GNOME Panel applets substitute the maximized window title and buttons. I've decided to make it because GNOME violates Fitts's Law by putting a panel between the maxed window buttons and the corner of the screen. These applets were designed to solve the problem. Window Title and Window Buttons are essentially controls for windows that are placed on the Panel instead of a window. They also provide a clever way to increase vertical screen space. By default they only control maximized windows, but can be configured to control any focused window.

If you find a bug, please report it in the comments section. Also if you voted "minus", please explain why so I may improve the applets.

Builds/Repositories:
Ubuntu: https://launchpad.net/~tsbarnes/+archive/misc/ Thank you Scott!
Ubuntu: https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/webupd8 Thank you Andrew!
Mandriva: ftp://ftp.linux.org.tr/pub/mandriva-tr/2010.1/ Thank you Atilla!

Dependencies:
Ubuntu (for 0.2.10): build-essential, intltool, libwnck-dev, libpanel-applet2-dev, *autoconf-archive
Ubuntu (for 0.3): build-essential, intltool, libwnck-3-dev, libpanel-applet-4-dev

Installation from source:
1) Download
2) Unpack
3) ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-gconf-schema-file-dir=/usr/share/gconf/schemas
4) make
5) sudo make install
6) cd buttons && sudo gconf-schemas --register windowbuttons.schemas && cd ../title && sudo gconf-schemas --register windowtitle.schemas && cd ..
* Alternatively you can try using gconftool-2 --install-schema-file instead of gconf-schemas --register
7) Add desired applets to panel.

FAQ:
Q: How do I hide the window decorations on maximized windows so that it looks like in the screenshots?
A: The simplest way is with the help of Compiz. Right click on the Window Buttons applet --> Preferences --> Behavior --> "Hide Compiz decorations for maximized windows". If you do not want to use Compiz then you can achieve the same effect using an external program called maximus created by Canonical Ltd.
Q: After installation, I cannot find the applets in the "Add to Panel" dialog.
A: Try restarting the panel by pressing Alt+F2 and typing: killall gnome-panel.

TODO:
- Make a variant for Gnome Shell
- Make a variant for Unity

Thanks!

I do agree with you, the minimize and maximize buttons aren't that important. The 'x' button is what makes it useful. You no longer have to aim for it, just slide your mouse in the corner and click.

 help install #2

First of all excuse me for my bad english... Your applet is a great idea! But I have a problem when I try to add it to the panel:

When I try to add it to the panel, a message appears saying something like this: "Panel has found a problem while loading «OAFIID:WindowButtonsApplet». Do you wish delete the applet from your settings?"

I saw the install.sh script and edited the line that installs the build essential packages for ubuntu/debian, commenting it. I have deleted the slashes after the variables of locations in ending lines, because when I had run the script I got a warning message that said something like "cannot copy regular file X to Y: Is a directory". But no more problems.

Could you help me with this? Are there some thing that I had do wrong?

P.D.: I would like to translate your applet to spanish! It would be wonderful if you add gettext support!

Well, if you modified the script then it probably didn't do everything it should have.
Unfortunately I need more information to be able to help you. Send me your AIM/MSN/ICQ/GTalk/Skype/whatever address in a private message and we can try to sort this out.
We can talk about the translation too.

Thanks for your feedback!
