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

 Missing Metacity

 
 by AndyP79 on: Nov 25 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi, I have been using Window Applets for a while and everything was fine. I had them set to make Metacity dissapear when I maximized the window. I am currently using a different set-up in which I have compleatly deleted all my gnome-panels and using only AWN on the bottom of screen. My problem is Even after uninstalling Winodw applets, when I mazimize winodws, I lose my buttons still. I have to go to DockbarX in AWN panel and right click unmaximize to get my buttons back. How do I get them back so when I maximize windows they are still there please?
Good applications, just experimenting with other setups at the moment... Thanks

I'm assuming you were using Compiz to hide the borders, no?
Go to CCSM --> Window decorations and reset the "Decoration windows" field to default.

 Rotated Panel

 
 by akdor1154 on: Nov 27 2010

Hi,
I have my panel on the right-hand side of the screen - is there any chance of either changing the applet's behaviour or adding a preference so the buttons are not rotated and stacked vertically in this case? It uses up much more space than is necessary and just looks strange. :)

I've played around with the source a bit and commented out the rotation detection to have it work beautifully, but my C skills aren't up to adding a preference for this.

Other than this, brilliant applet. :)

Won't that make the buttons really tiny?
Well, unless you make the panel a lot wider...

Sure, I'll add the option.

My hacked version worked fine with my 56px wide panel, though to be fair I only used two buttons. I think it just has them overlap if there's not enough space.
Anyway, thanks heaps. :) Is there a donate button here somewhere?

I've already started working on it :)

Oh if you really wanna donate, there actually is a link at the bottom right of the article above the comments, but I haven't tested it yet. :P

 Installing in Debian

First of all, excuse me for my noobness :)
My problem is that I just can't figure out what you mean with this step when installing from source

3) ./configure --prefix=/usr --with-gconf-schema-file-dir=/usr/share/gconf/schemas

I'm assuming you are confused over the schemas options.
All gnome applets use gconf schemas to define their default settings. I agree that this is very annoying, but it is a standard procedure. Thus you need to tell the applets where the schemas are stored, which unfortunately is different for many distributions. The one in my howto should work fine for Debian/Ubuntu.

Thank you for the explanation of the logic behind it, but I still can't figure out how the input in the terminal should be. I checked and the gconf files are in the same route that in your how-to, by the way.

When I run the command, it says that there is no ./ configure. I thought that it was becuase I had to change something in the formula, but now I guess that's not the reason.
