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

i really like your applets, kudos!

Most of the themes included in my project were made by other people (see credits), because I'm not really good at it. I suggest you ask the Orta author to provide a theme for window buttons.

No problem.
And if you do make it yourself, be sure to notify me so I may include it in the next version.

 Secondary Monitor

 
 by gMinuses on: Jan 17 2011
 
Score 50%

When "Hide Compiz decorations for maximized windows" is selected, is it possible for Window Buttons to not hide Compiz decorations for maximized windows that are in the secondary monitor? Currently, when this option is checked, I have to close such windows in my main monitor which is kinda counter-intuitive, and the maximize/unmaximize button doesn't always work (though it works fine for windows in the main monitor).
Anyway, thanks for sharing such a great application. I love it a lot.

It's probably possible, but you should configure Compiz manually to do that. Go to CCSM --> Window Decoration and configure the "Decoration windows" field accordingly (my applet basically just changes this field when you toggle that checkbox). You'll probably need to look up Compiz's documentation to figure out what exactly you need to type in there.

Guess I'm out of luck. Can't find any window match rule relates to monitor or screen axis in compiz's wiki page.

Do other settings work? Do you have Compiz installed? What about gconf? What distribution are you running?

Hmm, it seems Arch places compiz's settings somewhere else, that's why this checkbox isn't working.

Just set it manually. In CCSM go to Window Decoration and put this in the "Decoration windows" field: !state=maxvert

This issue also seems to affect Ubuntu 11.04 when using "Gnome Classic."

Opening CCSM and manually inserting "!state=maxvert" in the Window Decorations field as you suggested fixes the problem though.

 maximized windows?

 
 by simonbcn on: Apr 4 2011
 
Score 50%

I like this program. It's very useful to me. Thanks.
But I have a question: why it opens almost every window maximized?
For example, I download/open one deb package from Firefox with gdebi-gtk (to install it). Gdebi-gtk, without this program, opens always no maximized, but with this program opens always maximized. Why?

Are you sure it's because of the applets? Which one?
I find this very unlikely, because window applets do not influence window sizes (unless instructed to by clicking).
