Application Title Bar Save

KDE Plasma6 widget with window controls

Project README

Application Title Bar

GPLv3 License GitHub Release

Description

KDE plasmoid compatible with Qt6 with window title and buttons. I like minimalistic display layout and used Active Window Control plasmoid, but it's abandoned for several years and now incompatible with Plasma6. So, I decided to create my own widget with the minimal set of features.

Goal

Stable and fast widget with control buttons and window title, ideally with the same functionality as Unity panel. I would like to keep the widget pure QML to avoid incompatibility and maintenance issues.

Disadvantages of pure QML widget:

  • Only icons can be used from Aurorae themes, the rest is ignored. Binary themes are unsupported at all (Issues #18, #6).
  • I cannot see the way to build menu with current plasmoid API (Issue #13)

Features

  • Close, minimize, maximize, keep below/above buttons.
  • Title with app name.
  • Configure actions on mouse events.
  • Configurable elements set and order.
  • Different theming options. Internal Breeze icons, System icons and Aurorae theme.
  • Configurable layout and geometry.

Installing

  1. Bash script

    • Update: wget https://github.com/antroids/application-title-bar/releases/latest/download/application-title-bar.plasmoid -O ${TMPDIR:-/tmp}/application-title-bar.plasmoid && kpackagetool6 -t Plasma/Applet -u ${TMPDIR:-/tmp}/application-title-bar.plasmoid && systemctl --user restart plasma-plasmashell.service
