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.

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).

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.

Windows XP could do this? are you sure?

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