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

 Width of title

How I can increase the size of the title?
The current maximum size is not enough for me.

You have two options.
1) Go to window title preferences and check "Custom style". Then simply select a bigger font.
2) Do not change anything in window applets. Go to the GNOME Appearance Preferences and define a larger "Application font". However this will also change various other fonts, so unless you want that, you should probably stick with the first option.

PS: I may have misunderstood. According to your comment subject you want to change the "Width of title"? In that case I'm not really sure what you are trying to do. The width is already as wide as possible. What more do you want? Can you give a little bit more detail as to what exactly you are trying to achieve.

Sorry, my english is really awful.
I refer to length of title. To maximize the showed text.
The font size is a workaround valid, but I thought if, for example via gconf, I can increase this length.

Again thanks for this program. It's really useful to me.

 Tooltip in Window title applet

It would be nice a tooltip, on mouseover, with the complete title of actual window.
This is specially useful with Firefox 4 without titlebar.

This is great! I'm loving it. Wish it was exactly like Unity's in that a hover shows the menu bar, but I would imagine that would be really hard to recreate. If the gnome panel had a way to overlap applets and show via hovering that'd be really cool, I could just combine your window applets and my Global Menu applet and never have to use Unity when it feels so alpha-y.

As it stands I've switched Global Menu to the tiny one-button version because having window controls and a title bar without having two bars essentially is so much better.

1. I absolutely love the "window applets" panel extension! thanks for your excellent work :)

2. If you ever feel like, pls give a thought to creating a combination of the gnome "window list" panel applet and "window applets": it would be great to have a close button on every window panel tab (like in tabbed web browsing). i think it would be a huge innovation and productivity booster! :D

best,

 AWN plugin

 
 by aproposnix on: May 19 2011
 
Score 50%

Since we are seeing the demise of the 'classic' panel in Gnome and Ubuntu, it would be nice for those of us who have been using Window Applets to have a way to continue using it.

It would be very nice if there were a Window Title AWN plugin (much like dockbarx did). It would be useful with AWN in panel mode.

Could you possibly do this? Please Please Please :)))

Yeah, but Unity sucks (IMHO anyway). It would be nice to see windows applets working with either awn or dockbarx (esp., in Panel Mode).

Makes more sense than shoe horning it into Unity.

Unity is by far the worst user interface ever produced by a commercial company in my opinion too. But unfortunately a lot of people are stuck with the crap, so I will definitely port the applets to it in hopes of making their lives a little less miserable.

This however doesn't mean I won't try AWN (which I use myself). Ideally I would like to port it to every platform in existence, but of course my obstacle is the lack of time.

I'm happy you agree in terms of Unity.

My goal is to use neither Unity or Gnome shell. The only thing missing from all other window managers is Windows Applets - really. I'm dependent on it.

If you could find some time, please have a look into this.

thanks a million.

 No compiz border hiding?

Hi! I'm using version 0.2.10, from the webupd8 PPA on Ubuntu Natty, and i've found that the compiz decoration hiding option isn't working for me--it simply acts as if it wasn't enabled.

Additionally, when i restart the gnome-panel, or reload the applet, the option appears unchecked.

Yes, this appears to be true.
It seems there was another change in Ubuntu 11.04 (either with Compiz or Gconf).

Anyway, you can still set it manually.
In CompizConfig-Settings-Manager click on "Window decorations" and put "!state=maxvert" in the "Decoration windows" field.
