KWin Button Applet

Blog:  Link
Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  623
Submitted:  Mar 24 2010
Updated:  Mar 25 2010


This applet emulates a button from the window title of the currently active window. The following actions are available:

* Window menu: Clicking on the applet will bring up the window menu for the current window.
* Iconify: Clicking the applet iconifies the current window.
* Maximize: Clicking the applet maximizes or restores the current window.
* Close: Clicking the applet closes the current window.

If the type is \"Window menu\", the applet shows the icon of the active window. In all other cases, the applet shows an icon describing the action.


* Support for three different appearances: Plasma/KRunner theme (new default), desktop icon theme (old default), custom icon.
v0.0.2 (24 Mar 2010)
* Fix that window icon is not updated correctly in some cases.
v0.0.1 (24 Mar 2010)
* Initial release.

 Wish: Only if win maximized

First, congrats for the applet. Very useful for netbooks...

It would be nice to have a config option to only display if the active window is maximized. Together with the BorderlessMaximizedWindows=true, this makes it more natural to the panel behave like the window decoration, as non-maximized windows already have their own buttons...

Another suggestion would be that the maximize / restore could swap it's icon depending on the state, just like the regular windows decoration does...

I really like this guy's ideas. Any hope of seeing them implemented? :D

Either way, *great* job on this widget. It does something _very_ important that, until now, hadn't been done by anyone to my knowledge: It allows the system to obey Fitt's Law (common and important actions should be accessible via jamming the mouse to a screen edge/corner) when a top panel is in use. It's a little puzzling that Apple hadn't thought of this yet. Leave it to FOSS! :)

Could really use some update, with KDE 4.5 it crashes plasma quite often...

 Multiple screens improvement

A very usful plasmoid, thank you.

Currently the buttons control the window which has the focus. In multi-monitor environments it is not always clear which window has the focus (because you can have 2 maximized windows).

Thats why I suggest that the buttons control only the (top) window of the screen the plasmoid lifes in.

Hi... i'm sorry if i criticize your work i think it's great but it will be very nice if you can add "stick" and allways above" buttons :P
The oxygen looks awesome without buttons on the title :D

 Doesn't work anymore

It stopped working after my recent upgrade to Kubuntu 11.10 - it looks like libtaskmanager is missing and not in the repos. Any idea how to fix it?

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.
