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
- New screenshots (feel free to contribute)

I'm just install Ubuntu 9.04 on VirtualBox :) and try install WBA. Successful. But when maximized window on screen, why metacity not hidden like in the screenshot?

You need to check "Hide Compiz decorations for maximized windows" in Preferences under Behavior.

I don't know how to hide Metacity on maximized windows without Compiz. But in general, you don't need it.

After searching through the compiz settings for this option I realise the author meant the preferences for the applet itself, which you can only get to if a window is maximised.

1. Maximise a window so that buttons appear on panel

2. Rightclick on the buttons in the panel and choose prefs

3. Tick compiz box to hide on 3rd tab

4. Enjoy the goodness

You have, in fact, been looking in the right place.
To be exact, it's in:
CCSM --> Window Decoration --> Decoration windows
This is the option that my applet's preferences modify.

As for the media control applet. Are you sure such a thing doesn't exist already? I find it unlikely that it wouldn't. I could be wrong though.

Just remembered. There's already a media control applet. It's called "Music Applet". In Ubuntu it's included by default. Here's the website: http://www.kuliniewicz.org/music-applet/

Yeah I agree completely. I actually tried implementing that, but it appears to be a real pain in the ass. I'd basically have to replicate Metacity's theming engine. And that means a lot of code.

 Problem while compiling

 
 by acidrums4 on: Jul 6 2009
 
Score 50%

While compiling, when I execute 'make' at the end an error appears:

make[2]: *** There's no rule to build the target `windowtitle.ui', neccesary for `all-am'. Stop.

When I execute buttons/windowbuttons all seems ok; but when execute title/windowtitle the terminal closes suddenly!

Thanks for your feedback.
Are you sure you were in the base folder when executing "make" ?

Can somebody confirm this?

Yes, I was under the base folder, and I followed all steps you gave in this page.
