    The Libroffice bug I have not been able to duplicate. Libreoffice plays really weird with the appmenu system. I don't really know how to fix that unless you could check and see if it is throwing an error. The rest are on my list to change for the next release. i'm not sure how to fix the hover menu thogh the popup seems to close no matter what i do but i'll try to fix it some how.. For anyone reading this. I have created a succesful appenu implimentation including free desktop shortcuts and recent documents. Go ahead and check out my git to download it and test it. Let me know what you think.

    Hi, I love this applet, been using it everyday, though there's several points that make it less confortable to me : *i miss the option close all windows" available on right click *when i close a window from its thumbnail, the thumbnail menu closes too. Would it be possible to keep it open even when you close a window from the thumbnail menu ? *when you don't use a windows for a moment, the icon goes red. Is that a feature ? would it be possible to set it off ? Plus, i've noticed a bug with the libreoffice suite. Sometimes if a calc file and a write file are both opened, the calc icon show a little ² when there's only one calc file actually opened. Do you plan to have a further update on those points ? Last thing, i downloaded the app from the website then installed it. Now the cinnamon applet manager warns me that an update is available, though it does not find it (i have a 404 error).

    ok forget about this, i was so stupid :D Just disabled the "Window List" Applet -.-

  4. specialdune says:

    3 weeks ago

    yes i know, but its not the pinned and unpinned what i mean, its the default "tab" view from running applications. here is a picture: http://www.xup.to/pic,23969381/bug.png the right "view" should dissapear :S

  5. physics says:

    3 weeks ago

    @specialdune if you right click on a pinned app, you can select unpin and it should unpin the app.

  6. specialdune says:

    i'm kinda newbish right now, i'm something missing... how can i hide pinned apps from the default application list in the task bar? or even better: how can i hide the complete (Default) app list from the task bar?

    @equaloppdork: that is intresting because chrome pins fine for me. Can you confirm that there is a google-chrome.desktop file in the /usr/share/applications folder?

  8. equaloppdork says:

    Really digging this applet. The only hiccup I have had, thus far, is I can not pin Chrome. This is a problem that similar apps also have, but I don't have a strong enough understanding of Linux to be able to fix it. Otherwise, it does exactly what I was wanting. Thanks!

    Why did you mess up a nice applet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It does not work anymore on Linux Mint 17: I can no longer pin applets to it from "configurable menu" and when I try to I get a displaced applet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The last update is so unnecessary and a mistake!!

  19. oscarus says:

    Great Applet! I've been using it for over a year and I love it. The only issue I've had so far with the latest release (v2.7.5, 2014-07-25) is that the pinned apps get rearranged for some reason when I pin or unpin apps or when I turn the rearrange option on or off. For example, if I turn on the "rearrange" option and move all my pinned apps to where I want them, as soon as I turn it off to lock them in place, all the pinned apps move to different places. A similar thing happens where apps get rearranged if I have all the pinned apps where I want them and then open a new unpinned app and try to pin it. This happens regardless of whether the "rearrange" option is on or off.

    Seriously this applet continues running on cinnamon, but it's out of day... The applet use an old mechanims to be installed. The author now working on update this excelent applet... You need to use the button "Install Applet" and then restart cinnamon... Or you can download the devpeloment version and install it manually: https://github.com/jake-phy/WindowIconList/archive/master.zip

    Is there a way to turn off the window preview and show the list of grouped apps like in Gnome 2? On my screen if I have grouping turned on I can't see more than 8 grouped windows due to the large previews, which nearly obviates the need for grouping in the first place. :-\ Changing the settings under thumbs/peek don't appear to make any difference.

    Can either the original author, or someone else who knows how, bring this up-to-speed with Icon Tasks in KDE? (...or better yet, bring it up to speed with the Windows 7 superbar by allowing the user to pin documents to launchers, making it recognize Unity launch shortcuts, and making it respond to "add-to-panel?) I'm a programmer, but I'm just not skilled enough with JavaScript to take a proper stab at this.

    This is an excellent app. However there is one major problem that prevents me from using it. It doesn't work right with LibreOffice. If you open a LibreOffice writer file from the desktop or a folder, it doesn't always show up as open in the app. If you already have libreoffice writer open, and you open a calc document, it doesn't show it under the calc icon but under writer. It confuses separate libreoffice program documents, and places them all under one icon, under the wrong icon (I opened writer and it appeared under the applets icon) or not at all. All other programs seem to be fine. I hope this is fixed soon. (Using Cinnamon 1.8.8, Ubuntu 12.04, LibreOffice 3.5.7.2)

    Great work on this physics, it's now my default window list. I do miss some incoming messages, due to the lack of feedback your taskbar provides. I see you are looking into it and I look forward to the results! So for clarity: Feature request: Application window flashing. Keep it up!

  33. jayp says:

    correction, its not left most favorite icon, any un-launched favorite icon.

    I really like it! replaced default window list. Feature request: 'Restore All' from right click menu.. fattymcninja: you can change that from Settings, its rather hard to find though... try right click on left most favorite icon.

    I like this applet a lot. Is there any way to not make the numbers appear above it though? For some reason, mine always has a number on top even if only one window is open. I'd also like a cleaner look so removing the numbers would help. Thank you.

  46. UncleS_A_M says:

    Hi physics! Great job, I really like your applet. There is just one option, that is missing for me. I think a possibility to scale the size of the icons would be great. (For me, a smaller size would be better.) If I understand the code right, the scaling should be quite simple. In "specialButtons.js" Line 272 and 360 one could replace the line this.icon_size = Math.floor(Main.panel.actor.get_height() - 2); by this.icon_size = Math.floor(Main.panel.actor.get_height() - ICON_SHRINK); for example, where ICON-SHRINK is a parameter which is set to the value "2" by default, but adjustable in the applet's settings. Or what about a scaling-factor (this.icon_size = Math.floor(Main.panel.actor.get_height()*0.7);) ? Just an idea. What do you think? All the best, UncleS_A_M

    The functionality is great but how can I reverse the midde-click to close the window, as it was at first? I miss that feature.

  52. eddie1 says:

    1 year ago

    Awesome. I'd use it, but... if you're on classic mode, the size of the icons always revert to the size of the top panel. So if you use a smaller panel on top, but want the icons to stay on the bigger bar on the bottom, the icons will stay to whatever size the top panel is set to.

    LibreOffice will pin to favouries, OpenOffice won't - any idea?

  54. spinnekop says:

    @Lusito Nope - it is set to normal. Works whenever I open multiple docs any other way. Just not when I open attachments from Thunderbird.....

  55. Lusito says:

    spinnekop I think you have the "smart" numbering enabled in the settings. change that to normal and you will see the 1 again.

  56. spinnekop says:

    1 year ago

    Hi Jake Thank you for your app which I love! 1 small query. If I open an attached document in Thunderbird it briefly flashes up the LibreOffice icon but does not show a 1 on the LibreOffice Writer icon which I have as a favourite. If I open LibreOfffice Writer from favouries it then shows as 2 items and I can see the attachment on the previews and switch to it. Not completely annoying but would be nice if it could be fixed!! Best Spinnekop!

  57. Lusito says:

    1 year ago

    hope you don't mind, I made a couple of changes: fixed a few compiler warnings, added support for the windowlist role (available in next cinnamon version) and made the close button not close the list of windows, but update it instead: http://lusito.info/3IDA-0443-B57M.zip

  60. deanp says:

    Almost perfect -- a vast improvement to the normal, rather BUSY window list. However, one thing that is missing (mentioned in the Readme, but not functional) are Super+# style keybindings to a) launch an application if not launched, b) focus an application if it is launched, c) switch focus between windows of the application has more than one window opened. This is one of the only features of Windows 7 I *love* and is far more elegant (and faster) than alt tabbing or entering scale mode. This would make this probably the most useful 3rd party applet.

    1 year ago

    Please I need help. I always use Linux Mint with Cinnamon, I love it! But I have an old computer and I have installed Linux Mint XFCE version. MY QUESTION is> There is some plugin (item) to add to xfce panel that be similar to this applet? App grouping, windows7-like, only icons... Thanks! :D

  65. JumpStomp says:

    1 year ago

    Loving this applet, running on mint14 no problems. Just one thing to consider maybe, I like to use it without grouping apps into one icon, but with that option, if I open a window from a pinned (favourite) program, another icon for the same program pops up next to it, as an open window. So there's two icons for the same program even with only one window open, one with the border around to show that it's open, and another without. Only for favourited/pinned programs. Although this really isn't even an issue, it does seem a bit redundant and ugly atm. And it can take up way more space on the panel than necessary if a lot of favourited programs are open. I know I can just choose to group them in that case but this'll just be more efficient if I don't have to keep changing the option. I also realised the whole point of this applet is to make it grouped like win7, but I like having this dual sort of function in one, as both launchers and as a window lister with the ability to keep it ungrouped. Sorry for making this so long, but keep the good work! :)

    This applet is a great idea but I can`t get it to work properly. I`ve installed following the instructions, restarted Cinnamon, the applet show in Settings so everything seems in order...but when I activate the windows do not group. And if I deactivate the Cinnamon Window List applet the windows list dissapears altogether (I don`t know if they`re supposed to be activated together for it to work but clearly something is wrong). I`m running Ubuntu 12.04 with the latest Cinnamon, any idea what I should do? Thanks!

    Thanks, 2 Issues tho: Pin-Apps doesn't work, the app won't even be added to the list. Netbeans doesn't work correctly with favorites mode, It shows in the list, but once you start it, it will be shown in a new icon instead of the launch-icon.

  71. Verix says:

  73. HisDudeness says:

    1 year ago

    Anyway, some minor requests for the future versions, if any: can you add a right click option that allows us to close all instances of the same applications at a time instead of having them close one by one? Can you make it so that if we close a window by clicking the X on the upper right corner of the thumbnail we still get other thumbnails opened, instead of losing focus? Can you give us an option to get an overview of all instances of the process (so that we can choose one by clicking it) by clicking on it on the bar, like in *ugh* Unity? Could you make it so that we can close instances by midde-clicking on their thumbnails? Let me know if you intend to consider one or more of those requests. Thanks a lot in every case, the applet is just indispensable!

  74. HisDudeness says:

    Oh, I'm an idiot. ppa are Ubuntu's things, so can't use them in LMDE, in fact I got some errors that depended on ppas of other software I tried to install (jupiter).

    @mIXpRo You can already do all of that. In a pinned app that isn't open you can right click for the settings. And the previewed windows already have an X on them when you hover over them to close

    suggestions for making it better : * if you can make the icons bigger or wider * include close button in the previewed windows other than that it'w awesome , thank you :D

  79. ChinaJ says:

    Great app, loving the preview and the grouping. Only two small problems: 1) For some reason, Software Manager isn't grouping with the icon in the panel. It pops up a separate icon in the panel, and THAT one has the little number "1" on it. The other apps I have on there work the right way, just Software Manager. 2) When I hover over the Banshee icon in the panel, it truncates the name; I see "Bans..." instead of "Banshee". Again, only this icon gives me the issues, none of the other ones (including Synaptic Package Manager, which is super long) do this. I haven't messed with any of the settings on anything. Weird. Running on 32-bit Maya. Other than these two small issues, app works great!

    First, I'd like to tell I like this applet, I use it as a dock. But, icons are troncated on top and bottom, and icons move, they are shifted 1 or 2 pixels left, when you activate an app. I use version 2.6.9, I was unable to install 2.6.9.3. I follow Mint installation procedure and it stay in 2.6.9. Thank's.

    Greetings buddy, congratulations!! your applet is getting better an better. I have a small suggestion, is it possible to set a fixed distance between the launchers in your applet? I mean now i can see that it inherits the styles of the Panel Launchers Applet so most of the time the launchers icons are too near each other and then when you open one it changes the separation according to each theme, sadly in most themes it does not look so great. If you could set the distance between launchers to the same that the open applications uses it would be awesome.

    Maybe it would be great to add support for multi-language? I can help with the translation into Russian (Ukrainian). I'm already have an experience (engaged in translation of cinnamon). Alternatively use the lang.mo (compiled) or lang.po (source) files?

    @physics There is such a file there, but when I actually try to use the settings from the applet it won't work. That being said, in looking for the file, I've realised I can simply execute the file from the terminal. I'll just leave my set-up now. Thanks for this applet.

    @ botchy glad it's working for you. I had tried to add a function that is a gnome 3.4 function but it's not in gnome 3.2.

  130. physics says:

    2 years ago

    I'm sorry, I hadn't made it clear that it had to be run in the terminal. As far as the settings window, is there a file named (cinnamon-windowlist-settings.py) in .local/share/ cinnamon/applets/WindowListGroup@jake.phy@gmail.com. if not make sure there's one in the downloaded folder and try running install.sh. if there's not one in the downloaded folder redownload and reinstall. Glad it's starting to work for you.

  131. lukys says:

    2 years ago

    Oh, there is one thing. I now can't open the settings window at all. This isn't really a problem at the moment because I don't mind the settings as they are, but it is quite important in general.

  132. lukys says:

    What more information do you need? I'm on the latest Cinnamon, I believe Python is all up to date. If I click on "group apps" in the Python menu, it doesn't change anything, and when I open up the menu again it's not ticked.

  141. physics says:

    Weird i can't duplicate the problems. Anymore info would be appreciated.

  142. lukys says:

    Let me clarify. The windows are grouped in that when I hover over, say, a LibreOffice icon all LibreOffice windows are displayed. It's just that there are still all of the Icons present too. http://i.imgur.com/m9WpE.png

  143. lukys says:

    2 years ago

    This applet doesn't group apps, and won't save my settings if I change them using the Python menu. It also doesn't detect when windows have been closed and keeps the icons there. This has great potential though, keep up the good work.

  144. physics says:

    2 years ago

    you can try copying install.sh: rename it to uninstall.sh and run it. It would seem as if it's not detecting when a window is removed. Could you open a git issue?

  145. botchy says:

    2 years ago

    This is how my app looks now (after opening and closing some progs) http://t.co/Gy7TpkcJ Is there anything else except the .local/share/cinnamon.applets/app dir, that i should try to clear? This is strange to me, because even reverting to 2.4 does not help.

  146. botchy says:

    2 years ago

    no. still the same. :(

  147. physics says:

    2 years ago

    Can you confirm that all those bugs are fixe?

  148. botchy says:

    2 years ago

    What did I do wrong? Installed 2.5 and now if I close a programme that is not pinned, its icon stays on the panel with an empty preview. If I open it again, it gets a new icon. And the numbers do not decrease. I tried to revert to 2.4, but this problem stayed. Another thing I found is with Open Office. If I have a Calc open and I open a document from Nautilus, then I have in the Calc icon 2, but I do not see the document in the preview and I have no icon for Write.

  149. physics says:

    Tis done :) thanks for pointing that out.

  150. jh0ker says:

    I would love to see drag and drop support so if you drag a file over a icon, that program gets the focus. As seen in original Cinnamon Window List. Besides that this is awesome!

  151. mojosmail2003 says:

    2 years ago

    Awesome app, and very customizable. After a few changes to the xml-file (making it display window title and use smart numbering), I now use this as my standard window list (unchecking the default "Cinnamon Window List" ). One bug though: doesn't seem to work to well when moving windows between workspaces. If I e.g. have 3 terminals open on workspace 1 and move 1 of these to workspace 2, I correctly get terminal count 2 on workspace 1 on but count 3 on workspace 2, and I am not able to preview the window on workspace 2.

  152. razor says:

    2 years ago

    I'm not sure if this is a bug, but when I hover over the thumbnail preview of a minimized window but don't click it the window becomes unminimized. It's hard to explain. Other than that it works perfectly.

    There seems to be an incompatibility with the gnome mousewheel zoom app by Tobias Quinn. If I add this applet to Cinnamon under Oneric, while the zoom is enabled, I lock up the GUI. The app is here: https://launchpad.net/~tobias-quinn/+archive/gsmz I queried the author and asked him to reproduce it and this is his reply: "As far as I can tell this is a problem with the applet and not the mousewheel extension - I've tried the applet zipfile version and the latest from git. There are no lines in ~/.xsession-errors from mousewheelzoom.py but there are some lines from the applet." The zoom applet is absolutely critical for me (and other visually impaired users) as Gnome3's "zoom" is most charitably described as an affront to visually impaired users. The mousewheel zoom adds Compiz-like mousewheel zooming capability to Cinnamon. Can you please help?

    @physics bro i found some issues of how the applet behaves when you have more than 1 instance of any aplication open. So the issue is that if those instances are minimized when u want to restore them only one will be restored while the other instances can't be restored even using the thumbnails to pick them. Is this a lilttle bug? Hope the feedback will help to enhance your great applet. Congratulations for your job, this applet is my favorite, it just needs some tiny fixes.

    @physics: We'll automate gsettings schema compilation going forward (i.e. your applet will be able to define a gsettings schema in XML which the settings tool will compile for you when it's installed). Also, we introduced the ability for applets to detect the panel edit mode and you can use that in yours to make things reactive or non-reactive.. (to make it easier for people to drag/drop the applet in panel edit mode). You can see how this is done in the main window list applet. Don't hesitate to come and chat on IRC at #linuxmint-dev on irc.spotchat.org if you want more info on this. Congrats on a great applet ;)

    Hey, I upgraded to Cinn 1.4 and now I can't get the icons to line up near the panel icons. They seem to be stuck on the right hand side of the screen.

    The applet is one of my favorite so far. I have only one problem. When I leave skype chat windows minimized by default when someone sends you a message and the chat window is minimized an asterisk(*) shows in front of his name in the window title, but since here there isn't any text and only icon, how can you see if someone has send you a new message. I have to close the chat window so I can have a number in my notification area over the skype icon. Otherwise 5 stars for this applet.

    hi... kudos on the applet... only thing for me is the fact theres so many open icons.... if all the open windows grouped together under one icon it would be perfect

    Also, unless I'm missing it can the version # be the first line in the applet file? Just to make lifes easier.

    Turned off the fav. Thanks for that. Would like app pinning if possible instead of Favs. Also, there is a lot of gray space around the window previews. I know a minor complaint, but they look much better without so much wasted space. see: http://osxdaily.com/2010/10/18/get-windows-7-style-window-previews-on-your-mac-dock/ Thanks for the hardwork!

    you can put more than five favorites in the favorites now

  222. physics says:

    ok the favorites have some problems but i have to go for now :(

  223. physics says:

    2 years ago

    added the option to turn the favorites off ^ not that I knew of

  224. Sid32 says:

    2 years ago

    Also, did you limit the favs on the pannel to 5?

  225. physics says:

    2 years ago

    ok

  226. Sid32 says:

    Please please please let us pick what programs we want on the main panel. I don't want all my favs there. I should be able to pin the programs I want there. Makes no sense to double up the favs list.

    ^^ ok will do

    I love this applet <3 Could you please create a github repo for it so we can work it on? I think that if some aspects were improved, it'd be so good that it should be installed by default.

  229. Sid32 says:

    I'm running this with the menu bar on the top, and the window preview image of the program could be a lot bigger. Lots of empty space. Using default theme.

    The restart cinnamon trick (alt+f2 and then enter "r") made the applet work for me. Thanks for the suggestion in the description. Some requested upgrades that will make this much nicer: basically, just make it like Windows 7 taskbar or Dockbarx: -- Option to group common items (i.e., shouldn't be two different icons for the same program) -- Option to pin With those two additions, this will be perfect. Thanks for your work.

  231. skibum1981 says:

    Agreed with bownz -- I'm really looking for a dockbarx replacement akin to dockbarx on gnome2 panels. Also, I cannot get this to work with the most recent version of cinnamon..... I click the checkbox in cinnamon settings and nothing appears. Not sure about the gconf-editor fix...

  232. bownz says:

    You should make it so you can pin the icon there. So like, yle to work with cinnamon tIt works as an app launcher :p

  233. rojthevlorlon says:

    2 years ago

    Almost there. The Close button needs to be at the bottom of the list and the icons need to be grouped the way Windows 7 / DocbarX does. It's really not practical to have multiple instances of the same icon. Good effort though.

    i could not figure out how to remove that box. when i get back i'll work on it again.

    Hi Working nicely with Cinnamon 1.3.1. Thanks a lot, it was for me a much requested feature. Your photo above shows a plain black box. I have an outside light grey box around the black one. I would like to know how to get rid of the outside light grey box, because I do not need it. I use the applet "Spaces" to place it in center position, just to distinguish it from Launcher zone.

    Hello there :) It sounds, that this applet will be a great deal, but i can't get it work with Cinnamon 1.3.1 What i have missed to do?

  238. Sidhartha says:

    Does this work with 1.3.1? I get the iconized window AND the normal application window in the taskbar. If I can get it work, this is a great applet!!! Thanks for your work.

    @RAWRferal https://github.com/linuxmint/Cinnamon/downloads Version 1.3.1 Works perfect.

    Unfortunately this is not working for me in 1.3 I extract to /.local/share/cinnamon/applets but after when I go to the cinnamon settings > applets menu, the menu doesn't load at all even after an ALT + F2 - r Can anyone tell me if I'm doing something wrong?

    Great applet, thanks! It would be awesome if you could pin icons, similar to the Windows 7 taskbar.

    Cinnamon 1.3.1 takes care of moving the applets so that you don't have to mess with dconf-editor ;)

  245. z06gal says:

    2 years ago

    Excellent.....I didn't think of doing that. Thanks!

  246. MartinB says:

    2 years ago

    Yeah that happened to me too. I copied all the line, you know double click then Ctrl + C, and pasted it in gedit. Edit the stuff there is quite simple and then you just need to copy again and replace the original content of enabled-applets.

  247. z06gal says:

    2 years ago

    Martin, I see exactly what I need to do but when I click on the line to change it, the window maximizes and it goes over the right edge of the screen. I can't even scroll to it and have to close it out and reopen dconf-editor but the same thing keeps happening. The strange thing is the window is as far to the left screen as it can go. I have no idea why it is doing this. I keep messing with it. Thanks for your help ;)

  248. MartinB says:

    2 years ago

    Sure z06gal,open the dconf-edito and go to org then cinnamon. You need to change the value of enabled-applets, there's a lot of text locate: WindowIconList@jake.phy@gmail.com and change the default value center:2 to: 'panel1:left:2:WindowIconList@jake.phy@gmail.com' Then deactivate the applet of the default window list. It works great :D

  249. z06gal says:

    2 years ago

    MartinB, can you tell me how you changed that in dconf-editor? Thanks ;)

  250. z06gal says:

    2 years ago

    Got it working! Excellent!

  251. MartinB says:

    2 years ago

    Fixed :D just required a little change in the dconf-editor great applet congratulations :D

  252. z06gal says:
