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 was wondering if there is a way to remove the application icon from the window title applet. That way the only thing shown is the title of the application.


If Windows crashes in the woods and nobody sees it. Does Microsoft still ignore it?

No, it is not possible. Yet.
But it's a small change, so I can (and will) add this option to the next version.

 Window buttons

 
 by Dimitroff on: Jan 16 2010
 
Score 50%

Why all of the themes are in bright or grey colours? I need some in dark colours, preferable "dust" on black background. I can not change that now, can I?
Very nice work by the way.
Ahh, and a newbie question - how to switch off upper panel of ffox and other maximized windows?

>> Why all of the themes are in bright or grey colours?
They're grey-ish transparent so they match most of the backgrounds.

>> I need some in dark colours, preferable "dust" on black background. I can not change that now, can I?
That's the idea. There's already a "dust" theme, have you tried it? Or did you run into some kind of trouble?

>> Very nice work by the way.
Thank you!

>> Ahh, and a newbie question - how to switch off upper panel of ffox and other maximized windows?
Rightclick on Window Buttons --> Preferences --> Behavior --> Hide Compiz decorations for maximized windows
You will need Compiz though, because it's the only window manager that allows this.

What do you mean?
It's already possible, just add the Title Applet to the panel.

 Hide windowborders in Metacity

 
 by kepstin on: Feb 27 2010
 
Score 50%

Hi,

I've put together a small patch to add support for hiding window borders when using Metacity (or several other standards-complient window managers, but not tested)

It uses libwnck and some code derived from devilspie to handle hiding window decorations.

At the moment it's somewhat minimal and cannot be configured, but it works :)

I'm sharing it on my website: http://people.scs.carleton.ca/~cwalton3/windowapplets-metacity-notitlebar.patch.txt

Please take a look!

Thank you very much for your patch! I have been busy lately and didn't even have time to reply. I will most likely include your patch in the next version when I have some time to review it.

 Window Buttons Naming

 
 by shafin on: Mar 1 2010
 
Score 50%

Can you please change the naming convention of window buttons so that it uses the same names as metacity themes. That way, one would be able to drug-n-drop buttons from metacity folders to create new themes matching the system theme. I normally create a theme matching my metacity themes but it needs renaming 16 files by hand.

Thanks a lot for the wonderful applet.

I'm not sure I understand you completely. What naming conversion? You mean the theme names, or the actual image names?

I'm very tired, maybe that's why I don't understand your post. Either way, PVT me some more details on what exactly you would like me to do.
