Re: [gnome-flashback] Suppor for hiding maximized window titlebar in Metacity and gnome-applets::WindowPicker


Both patches were attached and here are the links:
Metacity: 15_show_maximized_titlebars.patch
Gnome-Applets: gnome-applets-3.18.1-show-maximized-titlebars.patch

Thank you for detailed status report.
Minor issues definitely can wait.

those links point to a ppa. Can you link directly to the relevant patch?

Regarding window picker. Alberts and I have been working on refactoring the window picker applet. Thats why some files already have the new wp-* prefix and others don't. However neither Alberts nor I currently have enough time to finish that work and there are other mode important issues like the missing CandidatePopup for Input Methods.

There are a few other small issues currently but they should not affect the overall usability too much. One other thing is that icons of new windows start a little smaller and then jump to a slightly bigger size after a few seconds.

Maybe I will have some time to look into this again during the Christmas holidays.

@Lanoxx Thanks for the directions.

I've prepared a patch (attached), it's simple but works :-)

Patched packages are at:

I've noticed that "Show the application title and close button for maximized windows" is not always working if only one window is open.

        It would be nice to have an option for hiding titlebars of
        maximized windows, which is very useful on small screens.

        The idea is to hide titlebar in Metacity, I've ported
        corresponding patch from 2.x series (attached).
        To control this functionality, I propose adding "Show titlebar
        of maximized windows" option to WindowsPicker preferences and
        toggle introduced in patch

        Since I am not familiar with WindowPicker code it would be
        nice if someone could do that or at least instruct me.

    The window picker code is not too complicated, I recommend you
    take a look at

    I imagine something like this is needed:

    1. Add a checkbox to the ui file
    2. Add a property and callback to the .c file
    3. In the C file create GSettings object to the respective key and
    then set it to true

    I don't have the time to do that currently, but it should not be
    too complicated.
