Description:

This is a kwin effect that draws the application menu in the titlebar when the mouse is hovered over the titlebar.

Dependencies:

For gtk apps:
  • libdbusmenu

  • appmenu-gtk



  • For qt/kde apps
  • libdbusmenu-qt

  • appmenu-qt


  • For Qt/KDE apps to work with this you need a patched version of Qt. If you're on Ubuntu then you already have it. For archlinux users, it's in the AUR as qt-appmenu.


    General
  • QJson

  • kdebase-workspace\[-dev\]


  • Please report bugs and feature requests here: https://bitbucket.org/jimi312/titlebar-menu/issues

    cd titlemenu
    mkdir build
    cd build
    cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ../

    After this go to systemsettings, activate the titlemenu effect in the desktop effects category.
    Logout and login in again.

    Yes! This is the ONLY customization feature of Windows that I've missed since switching to Linux (and KDE) exclusively six years ago. I could never figure why this wasn't implemented because there is so much screen real estate available (especially now-a-days with monitors of very high resolution).
    I hope this feature is eventually integrated into mainline KWin/KDE.

    Sorry, I was thinking of the File menu & the toolbar being on the same line. Still a great feature nonetheless!

    Sorry, I forgot to mention this: Could you make it possible to be able to control whether the menu is on the left or right? (Even if only through a configuration file or something like that).

    It is a nice idea to save some space, but I experience some problems when I try to trigger the effect, see this screenshot: http://www.wstaw.org/m/2011/02/17/plasma-desktopnz1979.jpg

    Which version of KDE are you using? Does this still happen after logging out and logging back in?

    Yes log in log out after activation of the effect makes no difference here. This is KDE SC 4.6.0.

    WARNING: KWin headers NOT found, compiling might fail.

    -> Ensure you've installed the kdebase[-workspace]-dev package


    ..got a download link for that? (can't find anything like that in the Arch Linux repos)

    If you're on ubuntu then you already have the patched qt installed. For arch linux it's in aur. Just install the appmenu-qt package from aur and that will pull in all the required dependencies.

    This is an excellent effect, great work and thank you!!

    For the next versions could you consider this idea?

    http://forum.kde.org/brainstorm.php#idea91172_page1

    When the qt-appmenu patch goes upstream in Qt, hopefully 4.8, it could be merged upstream!

    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.
