INSTALLATION

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




SETTING KWIN PROPERLY

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

kate ~/.config/kwinrc

under [window] you should put

BorderlessMaximizedWindows=true

after that ,

kwin_x11 --replace

and you should get the thing
enjoy !

So I just installed it, and it does not seem to actually work. The widget with all of the buttons together doesn't show anything at all (just a small empty gap), and the individual buttons don't actually do anything when clicked. I was using the old version before (active window control that is). I just upgraded to the beta version of Plasma 5.9 (hopefully that isn't the problem) so I could use the global menu bar, and this would be a nice addition to that.

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:

ECMConfig.cmake
ecm-config.cmake

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?

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.

Contrast

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?
