Window Decoration native KDE 3.2 +

Fitz is a window decoration for KDE that allows you to work (or play) faster.

Unlike other decorations, Fitz does not have a titlebar above the window; instead, it puts the buttons in the menubar. As a result, Fitz lets you get to a menu item by ramming your mouse into the top of the screen. If you click on the window frame, the mouse will jump down into the middle of the menubar and Fitz will generate a click. This effectively puts the menubar at the top of the screen like Mac OS does.

To install Fitz from source code, download fitz-0.4.tar.bz2 and run the following commands:

md5sum fitz-0.4.tar.bz2
# d60b460b27603ce633630b50e581e989
tar -xjf fitz-0.4.tar.bz2
cd fitz-0.4
sudo make install

There's more information about fitz at http://fitz.sourceforge.net .


0.1: Initial release.
0.1.1: Added configuration option to turn off automatic maximize.
0.2: Added titlebars.
0.3: Dialog windows (see screenshot 2)
0.3.1: Fixed resizing bugs.
0.4: Made it look less ugly.

 Nice work!

Installed no problem with the Debian package. Very inventive and useful! On a laptop, it's great being able to reclaim extra window space by moving the titlebar out of the way in maximized windows.

 Great idea

But a bit ugly :(

Maybe try a thinner border and less rounding? This windeco seems like it's supposed to be minimal, but I think it could still be trimmed a bit.

Don\'t you get it? If you die in Canada, you die in real life!

"Maybe try a thinner border and less rounding?"

KControl has an option that lets you choose the border size. If you choose the smallest size, Fitz will draw a border that is 1 pixel wide.

If that doesn't work for you, bug reports are always welcome.

/usr/include/X11/Xmd.h: At global scope:

Can't compile it

In case anyone else has this problem, you can fix it by adding the following line to fitz-0.4/src/fakemouse.cpp :


The line should go near the top of the file between these two lines:
#include <qpaintdevice.h>

I don't intend to release an updated version since I don't have kde3 installed on my computer anymore. I am currently working on porting fitz to kde4. Sourceforge's svn repo has a version of kde that compiles, but does not work well.

 Leave away window title?

Great decoration, thanks! Just one question: Can you somehow include the option of leaving away the window title, so that you only see the buttons? That would be great. (When the window title is very large, then the whole line slides upwards, and, well, I think that doesn't look very good...)
