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

Sorry, it should be:

Where $ARCH is your architecture, i.e. i586 or x86_64

Cool, thanks. I've added the link now.
PS: will you be making builds for every version? How long do you think it will take on average to make a new one?

I intended to build rpm for every version; but there are some rumors that Mandriva Linux production will be aborted. Just make some googling to see what happens. If Mandriva survives from this situation, i' lltry to provide RPMs for Mandriva.

Building an rpm for new version should not time consuming job; once a rpm spec file is ready.

Thanks and you're welcome. :)

As for Emerald, I hope to see a workaround too, but I don't think much can be done in the applet though.

 I love them but I have a prob!

Hi!
Great Job, I love window applets, they are very useful on my netbook!
But I have a problem...
I'm on debian Sid and when I boot up my system, after logging on Gnome, window title crashes and the system says to me that gnome-panel find and error loading the applet and ask me if I want to eliminate it or not.
If I add the applet manually after logging in, no errors at all.
I tryed both .deb and sources, same issue.

No issues with window buttons.

It's a shame, because I really love that applet, but having to add it manually at every boot it's very annoying.

Can you help me, please?
Thank you very much!

And here it is. Took me all night to find what was causing that damn bug.
Turns out they changed something in the latest WNCK library that comes with Ubuntu 10.04 or perhaps in Compiz, so it wasn't really my bug. Either way, I had to work around it, and it should work now. Please test.

Scott's latest packages are meant for Ubuntu 10.04, because it has different dependencies.
You should either upgrade Ubuntu or try using a different version from Scott's PPA (I think 0.2.5 should do).

Or alternatively of course, you could compile from source.

 windowapplets system theme

 
 by Diomas on: Jul 1 2010
 
Score 50%

is it possible to add a theme "System" which will take settings from currently selected theme for window manager? at least button images - it's very hard to pick them one by one especially when open dialog starts each time from initial directory (not the last used)

or where does windowapplets store it's settings? it will be easier for now to make edits there than in Custom theme dialog.

It is extremely difficult to get the proper "images" from the current system theme. This is why I added theme selection in the first place.
I've tried getting the system images before, but it just didn't work all the time. If someone can find me a reliable way to do it then I will gladly implement it.

The themes are stored in /usr/share/windowbuttons/themes
