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

 can't install it

 
 by apparition on: May 5 2009

i'd love to use this little applet, which i think is brrrrrrilliant stuff.

i downloaded, unpacked it and cd-ed to the respective dir in the terminal. './configure' works fine, as well (though, 'libpanelapplet-2.0' is not found :-s). but then, neither 'make' nor 'sudo make install' do work. commands deliver:

"make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop."
"make: *** No rule to make target 'install'. Stop."

i have ubuntu 9.04. where's the problem? do i have to type or regard anything specific!?

thx for your help.

Did you add both parameters to ./configure like mentioned under "Installation"?
Also, do you have the build-essential package installed?

yep, 'build-essemtial' is installed and i also added both parameters to './configure' like mentioned under "Installation"....still, it is impossible to run 'make'. same error occurs. also for 'sudo make install':

"make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop."
"make: *** No rule to make target 'install'. Stop."

what might be the specific name for such a makefile?

and during './configue' there is an error message saying "No package 'libpanelapplet-2.0' found". is that package similar to 'libpanel-applet2-0'? because i have such a file (as in "Requirements" for this applet) installed on my machine...

strange that it is not running for me, as noone else seems to have probs with installing it...

Did you try installing the -dev package? that might do it.

hm, tried again today with the updated version and -tada! - it worked fine. strange sometimes. but, yeah, great it works!

still, i have got a problem with the images. though they are png and have a transparent background they don't behave like they should in the panel. background is and stays white, whatever i try to do. it looks a bit ugly...
is there a way to modify this!?

plus is it possible to make them images smaller?

You can use different images, or change those that come with the applet. The defaults are located in /usr/share/windowbuttons

I don't experience this problem though. Please keep me posted.

 Bugg-a-boo

1st, nice project thumbs up!

I'm using emerald with the line:

Any & !(state=maxvert & state=maxhorz)

So emerlad is not used when i maximize the windows, but when I am de-maximizing the windows emerald dies and doesn't draw any decorations at all.

The applet is installed from the 32-bit deb on jaunty.

This has been the behaviour with emerald for a while when you disable decorations (so obviously nothing to do with this gnome-panel applet). My solution was to stop using emerald (which I agree isn't really a solution, but given that, to my understanding, emerald isn't being developed any longer I don't expect this to be ever solved).

That's right. Emerald is being replaced by a new decorator.
