Download the latest version. Put the tar.gz file in a folder and extract it. Double click on install.sh. If there's a error, make sure you have cmake installed, if not: sudo apt install cmake (at least for debian based distro)

Figured it out. Realized that I had to build and install it myself. Had to do some research on building and installing KDecoration2.

A bit difficult to install especially if you're not familiar w/ cmake.

Otherwise, it's a great widget! Better than active window control in my opinion.

Thanks for this!

Without KDecoration2 we would not be able to have a perfect painting and animations based on c++ themes

Hi,

We may have different issues. For me, KDecoration2 was not in my system so I had to install it first. However, I couldn't find it in the repo. After a while of Googling, I found the GitHub repo here: https://github.com/KDE/kdecoration

I built KDecoration2 from the source code and installed it by running the commands below in a terminal:
git clone https://github.com/KDE/kdecoration.git
cd kdecoration
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
make install

After KDecoration2 was installed, I downloaded the source code of Window Buttons Applet (in the Files section above), unzipped it then run install.sh script.

After that, I was able to find the widget in the widget list.

Hope this helps.

Regards.

execute the install.sh at the command prompt. look for errors and warnings as that indicates what development packages are missing from your system...
you can use the project issues page in order to search for help and guidance...
