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

I've been doing this for a while using scripts but this makes life simpler. Also with compiz it is possible to make window-decoration disapear when maximized with command
Any & !(state=maxvert & state=maxhorz)
in ccsm > Window Decorations > Decoration windows

This is exactly what I needed for my Dell mini 9. I use it with the globalmenu applet as has been mentioned before, but also have a bottom panel with a window list and workspace switcher, set to autohide.

The next logical step in my mind would be to have an option to have the applet take the button icons from the metacity theme.

Also, if you can't figure out Gconf, why not just use a flat config file until you can get it working with Gconf? That's what I would do anyway, just a suggestion.

LOVE LOVE LOVE your applet! Keep it up! :D

>> The next logical step in my mind would be to have an option to have the applet take the button icons from the metacity theme.

You can already do that in gconf-editor, so I'm not sure if the applet should mess with it. I could perhaps add a "Remove Metacity's buttons" option.

>> Also, if you can't figure out Gconf, why not just use a flat config file until you can get it working with Gconf? That's what I would do anyway, just a suggestion.

I've thought about it, but I still plan on figuring out GConf, so I don't wanna double my work.

On a side-note, I've just discovered another behavioral bug. I need to fix that first.

There is the issue of XFCE though. AFAIK, it doesn't use Gconf unless an app specifically tells it to. I do plan on putting this on my Xubuntu box (using gnome-swallow-applet) that I use occasionally, and I don't want to have to track in all of the Gconf dependencies due to the storage limitations (only have about 20 GB usable, 5 or so of which are filled). Just a consideration. Keep it up! I don't have enough patience to learn C, so I give you kudos for putting up with my nitpicking ;)

Hehe, thanks :)

But in reality I've got more plans. Here's a preview of what I wanna do:

~ Button rendering according to user's current Metacity theme (This isn't going to be easy, but I'll try.. might need some help though)

~ I'm gonna make another applet that displays the window title.

~ Option to automatically remove the decoration on maxed windows.

Hey, man, if you make this thing work with all this things you said, it should definitly be included as a default applet for Koala. Its really handy, makes the desktop much more usable.

 Reverse Order

Hi!

I love your panel-applet! Thank you for it!

Unfortunatly, I got used to the reversed window-button order on the top left corner of windows: Close, Minimize, (Un)Maximize.

I already played with your code in order to achieve this reverse order, but with no success.

Could you tell me how to reverse the order of the applet-buttons or even build in a switch in the configuration to do so? This would be amazing!

Thank you!

That applet is really great.

I have a little problem building the last version (0.1.6). Configure and make run fine, but when i try to install with "sudo make install", i got following error:

(gconftool-2:10966): GConf-WARNING **: Error loading the source »/usr/share/gconf/schemas«: The address for the configuration source could not be resolved: Invalid address »/usr/share/gconf/schemas«

Any hints?

Yes, that was my mistake. I wrote the instructions wrong, but fixed them later. Please look at the new instructions.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
