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.

 Window Picker?

 
 by noduck on: Mar 5 2010
 
Score 50%

Very nice. I use these applets together with Ubuntu Netbook Remix, and it looks much better and is more functional than the standard "Window Picker" applet.

However, one function of the Window Picker applet I have not yet been able to replace: it shows a single button for each open window. This allows to quickly change applications (with the mouse). It is a bit like the "Window Selector" applet, but without the menu and flattened.

Would you be interested in implementing something like that.

Anyway, thanks for the nice applets!

How do you imagine this would be implemented? I need some more concrete ideas first. What are we talking here: perhaps right-clicking on the title applet and selecting a different window?

Actually, I found the solution right on this website: talika.

Thanks for the great applets!

It's possible to add the Window Manager menu when clicking on the applet?
Like the Ubuntu Window Picker.

 Absolutely brilliant

I love this applet! It works great.

Occasionally it loses the theme and becomes flat, though.

Thank you.

But what do you mean by "becomes flat"? Can you explain in a bit more detail?

Never mind that. I misunderstood what it meant. I was talking about the 'unfocused' buttons. I'd set it to control all windows and so I only see that 'unfocused' button very rarely so thought it was displayed in error.

Thanks for a very useful applet!

 Bug when closing windows

When I close a window the WBA doesn't hide. It only hides after I hover the cursor on it.

 Add a menu for open windows

It would be nice to have a menu like the default gnome Window Selector applet with the list of all open windows.

Hmmm, where do you think it should be implemented? The Title applet?
What would be the advantage to simply using Window Selector instead?

 Can't remove settings

I removed this package prior to upgrading Ubuntu but it's still putting the window title in the panel and hiding the title bar in a maximised window. Are these settings stored externally somewhere?

Well, they are stored in gconf (/apps/panel/applets). But if you remove the applet the settings should reset.

Perhaps have the preferences removed when it's uninstalled

I'm not sure if it is allowed by DEB standards to remove personal settings. I'll have to talk to Scott about this.
Otherwise a simple "Remove From Panel" applet command will delete the settings, unless there is something wrong with your distribution.
