original stuff is here


but i was not satisfied with that so i forked

works for me i hope ti will works for you


This will do the installation for you

mkdir /tmp/nowardev ; cd /tmp/nowardev ; wget https://github.com/nowardev/kde-peace-settings/raw/master/plasmoid/plasma-applet-nowardev-button_0.0.2.tar.gz ; tar xzf plasma-applet-nowardev-button_0.0.2.tar.gz ; ./installscript

now if you prefer manual installation
just untar and then for each folder do that :

mkdir build ; cd build ; cmake .. ; make ; sudo make install ; kbuildsycoca5

now add widget in the panel IN THE PANEL !!
and search for NOWARDEV it should appear


if you want borderless windows you can set it in this way :

kate ~/.config/kwinrc

under [Window] you should put


after that ,

kwin_x11 --replace

and you should get the thing
enjoy !


0.0.2 This should be handy to use less space in the pannel :

Active window widget :

-title can be visible by an option
-mouse wheel up to maximize
-mouse wheel down to minimize or unmaximize
-MIDDLE mouse button TO CLOSE

removing bad stuff on the other 3 widget minimize maximize and close button

-always the icon selector
-maybe if i find out how , aka lack of time , to show buttons only when the current window is maximized
-fix the layout on big panels


splitted in 4 plasmoid so user can choose where and what add to the panel

added active window icon
fixed a lots stuff in configs dialog


fix some stuff on window icon
maybe add the ability to choose the icon sets
maybe add active text checkbox in window icon plasmoid

added maximize button
removed window information
tweaked some values
always visible buttons

 Nice work

I haven't yet made the full switch to KDE5 (got it installed on my barely used laptop), so it's nice to see something like this, which I use on KDE4 available. It looks like it doesn't hide itself (and take up no panel space) when there's no active window though. Any plans for adding that as an option in the future, assuming such a thing is possible within Plasma's constraints?

Trying to download the plasma applet took me to a 404 Page Not Found. Also using the install script you provided failed to install the applet. Perhaps the two are connected?

I got the script to work. It was a missing dependent on my part. Forgot to install a certain plasma Dev program.

I upvoted your applet. It works well.

 Can't build applet

 by zoltor on: Aug 7 2015

Can you tell please, what dependencies I should install for succesfuly build your applet in fresh kubuntu 15.04? I installed a few but now when I try to do cmake command I get error:
"CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:3 (find_package):
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "ECM" (requested
version 0.0.11) with any of the following names:


Add the installation prefix of "ECM" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "ECM_DIR"
to a directory containing one of the above files. If "ECM" provides a
separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed."
Maybe you can provide ready-to-install package through built-in KDE applet manager?

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
