Description:

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
./configure
make
sudo make install

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




Changelog:

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.

something like this is what i have been looking for! BUT!
its kinda ironic that the idea behind fitz is supposedly to be space-efficient, yet it uses gigantic titlebar text. i like fitz, but for that unfortunate detail. also the titlebar feels a little too big and cludgy.

This is the first release where I really cared how it looked. As a result, it doesn't look like the windows 3.1 window manager anymore. Whoop!

There are still some small bugs in this release that I have not worked out: when you switch from another decoration to fitz or if you open a dialog, a window may not display correctly. If a window looks wrong, just resize it or drag it around.

this is quite great! But title text and buttons deserve a total rework. they look plain ugly. once redone these in a more stylish way, this is a great deco.

Seconded. Great concept, but the execution needs a little more loving. More specifically, the slanted buttons don't look good, especially since not all are slanted (the minimize button), and the text is not oblique. I'd prefer a non-slanty version, with a less bulky look.

I'm more of a programmer than an artist, which is why I haven't focused much on how it looks.

I tried slanting the titlebar text like I did the buttons, but it was too hard to read. Also, the minimize button started out as a right triangle shaped like |/ and it was slanted just like everything else. Unfortunately, it doesn't look slanted.

The next version will probably allow the user to choose from a set of buttons. If someone is interested in making buttons for Fitz, you can email me at JeffAMcGee@gmail.com. It basically amounts to editing the file http://fitz.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/*checkout*/fitz/fitz/src/buttons.xpm?revision=30 with the gimp. I have also considered using the buttons from Crystal.

Unlike the previous releases, I only made superficial changes this time. I got rid of the lines around the window frame and I made the window corners rounded.

If you want to see what it used to look like, there are some out of date screenshots at http://fitz.sourceforge.net/.

I really love this windeco, probably one of my favourites next to domino.

In a future release, you could include a font configuration-type thing in the control center for people who don't like the large font!

Keep it up...
