Pixel Saver is an extension for Gnome Shell that merge the activity bar and the title bar of maximized window. It is especially interesting for small screens, but MOAR pixels for your apps is always good !
The extension has no configuration. Its behavior is made to mimic the one of the title bar and settings affecting the title bar should reflect in Pixel Saver. It Just Works !
|The title bar is completely gone and integrated to the activity bar.|
It is largely inspired by bios and mathematicalcoffee's Window Buttons Extension and mathematicalcoffee's maximus extension and some code come from there. You may want to check theses out, especially if you want something more configurable.
Simply follow the instructions and everything should be fine :
git clone https://github.com/deadalnix/pixel-saver.git cd pixel-saver # Get the last released version git checkout 1.9 # copy to extensions directory cp -r firstname.lastname@example.org -t ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions # activate gnome-shell-extension-tool -e email@example.com
Pixel Saver depends on Xorg's xprop utility.
Don't be silly !
