Hi! Great extension! Could you add a setting to turn off automatic undecorating/decorating when maximizing/restoring window? In my use-case I want to do it manually only. I commented out the content of functions "onMaximize" and "onUnmaximize" to get this behavior for now and it works great, but a settings switch would be nice :-) Also, I could not get the ignore list to work. I added firefox so content of ignored apps had "chromium,firefox" and turned on to use the ignore list. It did not work, even after restarting Cinnamon?

Commented out "onWindowAdded" and "onChangeNWorkspaces" as well to get my desired behavior.

This extension now works good on Linux Mint 19.3, but with an added twist when undecorating (with a hotkey) windows. When undecorating it removes the titlebar etc, but also adds a quite annoying border around the window that cannot be removed afaik. How to fix this, please?

Hi, similar to what other user reported, I also get a black stripe across the screen whenever a program extends for the whole width of the screen (e.g. maximised, or when tiled to the upper half or bottom half). See below: Strangely enough, this does not happen when a program extends just part of the width of the screen: My Cinnamon version is 3.6.7.

Can you please add a mode in which the extension does not undecorate any window. So the only way to undecorate a window is to use the hotkey or a whitelist.

In the ignore list you can write wildcard for any application ```.+```. In this case you will have ability to undecorate window with hotkey. I think the whitelist isn't higly demand.

What's the wild card? I tried the following ```.+``` * .+
Anton Danilov
Anton Danilov-6 months ago
Sorry. The parser doesn't implement the markdown syntax. Yes, .+ is enough to achieve what you want.

Got it, had to reload the extension after using .+

What do you mean? I'm not sure I've understood you correctly. Personally, I don't use these buttons, because prefer the keyboard shortcuts (you can set the most suitable combinations for you in `Preferences`->`Keyboard` dialog, tab `Shortcuts`, category `Windows`).

Am I missing something, or is there no documentation anywhere of how this extension is supposed to work?
It's suggested what the extension functionality is so intuivity, so the documentation is unnecessary.

I loaded it. Could not see that it did anything at all. So unloaded it.

I see the border where the window buttons were, only now they don't have anything, it looks like a black stripe, that will have an update or the problem is my configuration?

Absolutely great extension. Been using it more than 4 years, didn't notice any problems. Makes screen viewport windows look much better.

Really indispensable extension. Love it! Anyone who need "Undecorate when tile" option to work, just replace line 102 in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/extensions/cinnamon-maximus@fmete/extension.js with following (without ---): --- let maxID = null, minID = null, settingsChangedID = null, changeWorkspaceID = null, grabID = null, tileID = null; ---

This extension really helps to making my old Thinkpad with 1600x900 resolution screen a pleasure to use. First I set up the taskbar to be on the side of the screen, but I still didn't really have enough vertical space, so I gave Cinnammon Maximus a try and it solved my problem! Note that when enabling the extension I did get a warning that it is not compatible with my version of Cinnammon (3.8 in Linux Mint 19), but it seems to work fine. The entire title bar, including buttons to minimise and close windows are hidden, but if you just remember that alt+f10 toggles maximise, you can get the bar back easily. Great little extension!

Works!! on Linux Mint 19 Tara (Cinnamon) as well by changing the metadata.json as mentioned by @hard13

I tried some combinations but just couldn't use this extension to only hide titlebars in one single application (Opera Browser). Can Cinnamon Maximus be used for this purpose?
MarioFlying-3 years ago
Ok, I solved by using Devil's Pie 2 . As found in a comment on a Opera Blog old entry: ----- use a windows matching utility like Devil's Pie 2 to strip the titlebar. Install devilspie2 and create a file called ~/.config/devilspie2/opera.lua containing the following: if (get_window_class()=="Opera") then undecorate_window(); end ----- It works.

Luis Felipe Sánchez-Escobar Retamar
Perfect! i think this should be an option in core preferences. Thank you!

@Aprianto Nursetiawan: Use applet(s) like @Peter Engeldinger: Works fine with me on Linux Mint 18.2, Cinnamon 3.4.6 :)
Exitr-3 years ago
184 no longer exists (I posted a github link), but works fine for me on 18.2 as well.

The title bar is gone indeed but so does the window control.. How to get the window control in top panel just like in the screenshot?
