Zeripath's Cinnamon Window List (Now updated to work with Cinnamon-2.2/Mint-17.)

This applet is a modified version of the original window-list but with features for controlling maximized windows.

  • Clicking on the Window List Button for a focused Maximized window will Unmaximize it. Clicking once again will Minimize it.

  • Clicking on the Window List Button for a Minimized window will Restore the window, clicking once again will Minimize it.

  • Double-clicking on the Window List Button for a Maximized window will Minimize the window.

  • Double-clicking on the Window List Button for a Minimized or Unmaximized window will Maximize the window.

These features are very helpful if you wish to turn off titlebars for maximized windows and have a flipped menu bar. I use this with the cinnamon window buttons applet and a modified theme which removes the titlebars. (Please see the associated patch-mint-x-theme project: https://github.com/zeripath/cinnamon-applets/tree/master/patch-mint-x-theme )

Installation

  1. Install dconf-tools: sudo apt-get install dconf-tools
  2. Extract the zip into a temporary directory
  3. cd into that directory
  4. chmod +x install.sh
  5. ./install.sh
  6. Press ALT-F2, type r, and press ENTER to restart cinnamon.

The install script will replace the default cinnamon window-list with my version of the applet.

To uninstall the applet:

  1. cd into the temporary directory
  2. chmod +x uninstall.sh
  3. ./uninstall.sh
  4. Press ALT-F2, type r, and press ENTER to restart cinnamon.
