Hi,

We may have different issues. For me, KDecoration2 was not in my system so I had to install it first. However, I couldn't find it in the repo. After a while of Googling, I found the GitHub repo here: https://github.com/KDE/kdecoration

I built KDecoration2 from the source code and installed it by running the commands below in a terminal:
git clone https://github.com/KDE/kdecoration.git
cd kdecoration
cmake . -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr
make install

After KDecoration2 was installed, I downloaded the source code of Window Buttons Applet (in the Files section above), unzipped it then run install.sh script.

After that, I was able to find the widget in the widget list.

Hope this helps.

Figured it out. Realized that I had to build and install it myself. Had to do some research on building and installing KDecoration2.

A bit difficult to install especially if you're not familiar w/ cmake.

Otherwise, it's a great widget! Better than active window control in my opinion.

Thanks for this! - Nov 09 2018
I would like to use this, but it doesn't show on my widget list after installing it. I'm using:
