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

 Changing font size breaks stuf

 
 by DanaG on: May 11 2010
 
Score 50%

These applets are awesome, for laptops no matter what screen resolution.

A few improvements you could make to the title applet: have it follow the active and inactive metacity text colors automatically, and make the title draggable like the Ubuntu netbook UI.

Also, if you try to set the font to, say, DejaVu Sans Book 8.5, Very Bad Things happen when you return to the preferences dialog.

On my netbook, one time it made the preferences window 5 screens wide, exceeded Intel's maximum texture size (and so killed compiz), and then locked up the intel GPU.

On my full-size laptop with fglrx, it hard-locked the system -- corrupt video, and heartbeat LED completely dead.

>> have it follow the active and inactive metacity text colors automatically
It actually does that, but the problem is that each theme (at least in Ubuntu) has applet-specific font/color settings. And obviously they do not exist for WTA. Still trying to figure out some kind of a workaround for this.

>> and make the title draggable like the Ubuntu netbook UI.
Adding this option could be a good idea, agree.

>> if you try to set the font to, say, DejaVu Sans Book 8.5, Very Bad Things happen when you return to the preferences dialog.
I've just tested this (on fglrx/compiz) and it only crashed WTA. This looks like a gtk/gnome bug though. I will look into it.

Thank you for the report.

Great, the very best for my netbook, I especially like the buttons on the right, good idea.
Only thing, 0.2.6 + Ubuntu 10.04, if I try to open the Window Buttons Preferences, the applet crashes.

Hi, I have the same problem, also on ubuntu 10.04. Did you ever get to the bottom of it? I installed the applets from the PPA mentioned here - could that be part of the problem? If I can help you fix the problem then send me a message and let me know :-)

Alright, with ljrmorgan's help I've been able to locate the source of the problem.
None of you have Compiz installed.
But nothing to worry about - I will fix it in the next version so that you do not need it.

Oh, I see. Well I'm not sure why it wouldn't work. Could be some distro-specific conflict.

Anyway, try installing CCSM (CompizConfig Settings Manager), running it and enabling "Window Decorations".
In there you should find an option called "Decoration windows". It should contain this: "!(state=maxvert | maxhorz)" (without the quotes)

Thanks for reply. I have tried out your suggestion but no success. The only way i found to get metacity hide is completely disabling compiz window decoration plugin. May be it is a distro specific thing.

What decorator is used in your settings (under Window Decorations --> Command) ?

It should be "/usr/bin/compiz-decorator" (w/o the quotes of course).

Your "/usr/bin/compiz-decorator" way didn't work; but i manage to find my way. There was "(any & !name=kdesktop_lock)" option at my window decoration settings. I added "!(state=maxvert | maxhorz)" option after that and it wont work. So, i have changed options order as "!(state=maxvert | maxhorz)|(any & !name=kdesktop_lock)" and bum! now i can hide metacity! Thank you very much!

 width of window title applet

 
 by plopp on: May 25 2010

It would by great if the window title applet was not stretched all over the redundant area of the panel but had just the width of the window title (perhaps with some max width, as GlobalMenu applet allows to set), so that user could attach some other applets after the WTA

This is already in the TODO list. The only reason I haven't done it yet is because I'm trying to avoid having to use a "max width". I want it to be set automatically. However it is starting to look like a GTK limitation and I will probably be forced to use max width.
