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)
- Investigate merging of XfApplet functionality

Ah yes, it seems Scott didn't package the latest version right. I will notify him.

Meanwhile, I suggest you install it from source.

 0.2.1 bugs/suggestions

 
 by chareos on: Jul 10 2009

Hi,

to be of any help I point out there are a few bugs/improvements possible in 0.2.1:

- only setting visible in preferences is "show windows from any work area" (sorry, translation may be incorrect)

- pressing OK in preferences makes disappear the OK button, but the preferences dialog stills, button-less

- in actual behaviour, only maximized windows will have their title visible in the applet. Maybe that would be convenient to add a minimize and de-maximize button, too, not only the close-window one. At least the de-maximize one !


as it is, now Windowapplet has the potential to be better than dockbarx:

- icons would be much better to see if they would scale according to panel size
(using horizontal panel here)

- overrall look may be imprved by removing the background from apps and app title.


Looking forward for your next release !

Knd regards

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean.

This does not happen to anyone. What gtk/gnome version are using and on what distribution?

>> in actual behaviour, only maximized windows will have their title visible in the applet. Maybe that would be convenient to add a minimize and de-maximize button, too, not only the close-window one. At least the de-maximize one !

Have you seen the screenshots? This is already implemented. Maybe you've hidden your buttons?

>> icons would be much better to see if they would scale according to panel size

Well, it depends. Personally I would rather use larger icons if I had a wider panel. But I will consider this.

>> overrall look may be imprved by removing the background from apps and app title.

Sorry don't understand. What background? There's no background. It is transparent.

I think I was suffering from the "wrong packaging" issue.

Now preferences dialog is fine.


but:
- window title no longer shows up
- icons stays very very small even on a 48 pixel panel
- buttons no longer show
- also, window buttons no longer works. No buttons come on panel, and on next startup gnome prompts me there was a problem con windowbuttons applet and offers me to remove it from panel.

using ubuntu jaunty, updated.

Seems to be a package issue. To fix, set the panel color in the preferences.

>> icons stays very very small even on a 48 pixel panel
You mean the window icon? Yes that's supposed to happen. I could make it scale with the panel, but it's going to look ugly, because the icon the window managers provide is only 16x16 pixels large.

>> buttons no longer show
Tested on two different computers and it didn't happen on any. Try installing from source, maybe it's a package issue.

>> also, window buttons no longer works. No buttons come on panel, and on next startup gnome prompts me there was a problem con windowbuttons applet and offers me to remove it from panel.

Same as above.

Thne maybe the best-looking way would be to show app icon like dockbarx do. But then, maybe I'm going a little too far with my wishlist :)

...I can't make 'em workin'...
regarding Windows Button, buttons don't appear...
regarding instead the Window Title, it has a "strange" behaviour 'cos take the whole space between itself and the next applet/button without display anything except for the icon of the open window... so you go blind tryin' to click havin' results not expected... maybe I didn't guess how they work or miss something to do.


P.S.: Installed on Jaunty 32bit using the deb on Launchpad.

Well aware of the "issue". The simplest "solution" to limit how much the applet can expand is putting a Separator applet to the right side of WTA.

Since the applet is intended to expand as much as it can anyway, this isn't a real issue. But I will try to work it out and somehow limit it automatically.

I figured out that WBA takes whole space between itself and next applet... what's strange is its behaviour... I mena that all the blank space reacts as a minimized button... I had yet dl the packages (same dimension as that one I downloaded)... downloaded again now but same result.


I forgot to mention an important (maybe!!!!!) detail... WM on my Ubuntu is Compiz... pardon!!!

With 0.2.1 I can see both the window tite and the Window Title 0.2.1 on the panel.

What's wrong?

Oh, please disregard the parent message. It looks like I misunderstood.

Where do you see both of them? If in the panel, just remove the one you don't want.
Or do you mean in the "Add to Panel" dialog?

Either case, please contact me on private so I can help you work this out.

You don't see it, because the package you've installed didn't update the schema file.

Either install the applets from source, or manually fix by setting the title color in preferences.
