Description:

This is a Plasma 5 applet that shows the current window appmenu in your panels. This plasmoid is coming from Latte land but it can also support Plasma panels.

------
To install it you should build it yourself, installing it from Plasma Widgets Explorer directly wont work.

Requires:
-- Qt >= 5.9
-- KF5 >= 5.38
-- Plasma >= 5.12

Qt elements: Quick Widgets DBus
KF5 elements: Plasma WindowSystem
X11 libraries: XCB RandR

--------
You can use: sh install.sh , in order to install it if you have previous development packages available
Last changelog:

Version 0.6.0 1 year ago

* new option to support color schemes for menus. For Latte a new option to colorize the menus based on the current window color scheme is already present.
* release menu item hovering when not needed any more
* new option to maximize/restore active window when used in plasma panels [@ Taras Fomin]

This looks like just what I'm looking for. But I don't have the skills needed to compile it myself. Is there a pre compiled file I can download? Hopefully it will work with the widgets menu soon. But any help would be appreciated.

The only -1 : Manual installation
Otherwise, perfect!
Clearly better than KDE's default Global Menu, which used to keep showing the menu of one particular app minimized/closed to systray until another app became active.

I couldn't install this on the latest KDE Neon (based on Ubuntu 20.04), even after installing all the dependencies on INSTALLATION.md. Installation proceeds to 81%, then this error message:

[ 81%] Building CXX object plugin/CMakeFiles/appmenuplugin.dir/wm/waylandwindowmanager.cpp.o
In file included from /home/vinicius/applet-window-appmenu/plugin/wm/waylandwindowmanager.cpp:20:

compilation terminated.

Is this a missing dependency? I can't really tell what I should install. Thank you for this tool, I would really like to get it working.

7 I have the funcionality of the OSX finder menu in mind. As for now the app menu applet will not show anything when there is no active window .... Is it possible to make the applet -in case there is no open window- show the 'plasma_desktop_right_click_menu' or the dolphin_menu, (konqueror_menu)? instead? - as an option maybe.

9 @Psifidotos, congratulations on your great work, you're so talented at what you do, I'd like to share with you some feature ideas you'd like to see in future versions of Window AppMenu Applet:

Interaction with mouse commands, being possible to perform actions to maximize, minimize, restore and close the focus window, the commands could be configurable, the default could be, scrolling forward maximizes the window, scrool backwards, minimize, double left click, restore, middle button, close. By default the entire applet area would be sensitive to mouse commands, there could also be an option to set the length (px) of the sensitive area.

I don't know if this is related to the applet or something more general about KDE; but when I have two activities, one using this global menu and one without any global menu, the second activity's programs have no menu bars at all! Not even on their own windows. Is there a solution for this that allows me to keep different layouts across activities?

Nothing to do with the applet, it is how Global menu works. You can try to open a feature request for plasma and see how it goes

Hi! when I try to compile I have this bug:

Got unknown type `a(ia{sv})'
You should add to the XML description
make[2]: *** [plugin/libdbusmenuqt/CMakeFiles/dbusmenuqt.dir/build.make:66: plugin/libdbusmenuqt/dbusmenu_interface.cpp] Error 1
make[1]: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:565: plugin/libdbusmenuqt/CMakeFiles/dbusmenuqt.dir/all] Error 2
make: *** [Makefile:141: all] Error 2

My distro is Manjaro. I compile your Window Button Applet, so I guess that is not a dependencies problem. Aah, I tried to compile previous versions with the same error.
