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
- WBA: A more user-friendly way to configure button order
- WBA: Option to save/export the theme

Canvas the images with transparency at the bottom so that they are the same height as your panel (21px in Ubuntu 10.10 and 22px in previous versions).

I deliberately made it this way because it enables more freedom to the theme creators.

 Version 0.2.7

Hi my friend, I'm a fan of yours but I do not use Ubuntu, I actualy use Debian, both sid and testing, where version 0.2.8 can't be installed because libgconf2-4 >= 2.31.1 dependency is not satisfiable.

Can you provide a download link for version 0.2.7 for all Debian users?

Thanks a lot.

I would love to, but I am not the one who makes the builds. You should talk to the person who did (his gnome-look username is reeve or click the link to his launchpad PPA).
Of course if someone provides the Debian builds I will not hesitate to add the links!

I force-installed it on my Ubuntu Lucid, but then had to remove it because of window names that are longer than the applet’s allocated space causing the name itself to "pop out" and cover other panel applets like dockbarx.

It’s a pity cause in 0.2.8 the buttons pref window works w/out compiz installed and I can play with themes.

Read the FAQ. Emerald has a bug that prevents it from being hidden.

With version 0.2.9 the problem should go away (try turning the Hide compiz decorations option on and off).

 Bug: Emerald crashes

 
 by greoj on: Oct 28 2010
 
Score 50%

I've just posted a comment on your bugreport on Emerald crashing when hiding its decorations on maximized windows: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/emerald/+bug/376008

It would appear that this bug is circumventable: Disabling the Window-Applets setting to hide decorations on maximized windows and manually setting "!state=maxvert" under Compiz' window-decoration settings results in a stable Emerald experience for me (Ubuntu 10.10, default Compiz & Emerald).

Setting the Window-Applets setting to hide decorations on maximized windows again makes Emerald crash again as well. This behaviour is reproducable.

Please test this on your end. If it works like I described you can tell your users how to prevent this bug from happening or even modify your Window-Applets code to match.

Yes, thank you for sharing this with us. I have already changed the default configuration setting in the trunk, so the problem will go away in the next version.

 some issues

Hi and thanks for your work. I've found some annoying things. Here they are.

Some titles are too long to fit in the empty space on gnome panel. As result "gnome panel" looks weird because applets overlap each other. Because of this, "Window Title" applet must have ability to crop window title when it exceeds some length.

I am aware of this. If you look at the TODO list you will see:
- WTA: Make sure applet does not exceed initial width.
Hopefully the feature will be ready for the next release.

OK. So, do you still interested in such functionality? If so, I have patch. It adds field named "Title max size" into preferences dialog. Take a look at the attached patch. Note that patch was obtained as difference between directories.

Well, this works, but it's not the approach I'm taking. For the next version I made it so that you do not need to set the maximum width, it just uses the space it has available and no more. I'm still having some trouble with the "Expand" option, because it has to be on all the time for this to work and I need a way to simulate the off mode. When I get this working, I'll probably push out the new release.

Sure, autoresize is better, but I doubt that you can correctly implement this. At least you have a choice if something goes wrong.
