CSD: Title bar does not show the window title #638

Closed
opened 3 months ago by kahatlen · 5 comments

With client-side decorations, the title bar contains minimize/maximize/close buttons, but it does not show the window title. It would be useful if it also showed the window title.

I use GNOME, so I'm stuck with client-side decorations. GNOME does show the window title when I hover the mouse over the foot window in the activity overview, or when I cycle through the windows with alt-tab, but the title bar is empty.

Yeah, this is mostly due to me being lazy :)

Having the title in the title-bar makes a lot of sense, and I think that we now have more infrastructure in place, making it easier to implement now than what it was when the CSDs were initially added.

I would suggest a documentation update that mentions the button-color option applies to the titlebar text as well - I was wondering and made it to the code and this commit to find out how! It didn't occur to me to try.

Also: an option to center the text would be nice as well :).

@rbutoi yeah... when merging the PR, I couldn't decide whether to add a specific conf option for the text color or not.

But now I think it does make sense that it has its own option. The alternative would be to keep using button-color, but to rename it to something that better reflects its duality.

Patches welcome ;)

(current infrastructure doesn't allow us to do this, making this seemingly simple feature more complex than you'd think).
