vertical windows bars?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Is there a theme/window manager(?) that would allow me to have the windows toolbar/menu be vertical vs. horizontal? maybe group all open applications in tabs?

oasisgames posted this prototype in the pic thread:

Interesting concept... I don't know of any of these in existence, though.

The only existing decorator with such an option is Jasper, but I don't suggest using it regularly, it's a "concept decorator", built from scratch by b0le to be the base for the future replacement to Emerald.

If you like alpha software:
Code:
git clone git://anongit.compiz-fusion.org/users/b0le/jasper
cd jasper
./build.sh
./jasper --replace
It may not start properly the first time, you may have to Ctrl+C and re-run.

I'd also like to add that there is no option for window titles yet. I'm sure b0le will get to it soon. All the drawing is done with Cairo, so it shouldn't be too difficult.

e: You'll need the libdecoration dev packages. libdecoration0-dev in Ubuntu.
