For any debian "commoner" (not sure if this works for arch based distros but I was on KDE Neon) wanting to build this for themselves and are struggling with cmake dependencies, you can do this:

1. Using "apt-file", search for the missing required dependency
e.g. Could not find a package configuration file provided by "ECM" with any of the following names: ECMConfig.cmake

Do this:
$ apt-file search ECMConfig.cmake
extra-cmake-modules: /usr/share/ECM/cmake/ECMConfig.cmake

$ sudo apt install extra-cmake-modules

Repeat this until all dependencies are met and a full install ($ sh install.sh) succeeds

I used all 3 of Michail Vourlakos' AWC suite and totally replaced the no longer supported AWC (https://store.kde.org/p/998910/)

Installation went smooth except some warning about anaconda, but adding the widget to panel doesn't actually add it to the panel. No errors. I am on Fedora 29 KDE.

Could someone help with this installation error?

"""

Okay. I installed extra-cmake-modules but I still have problems. It's the same as kokonxn.

Kubuntu 18.04; Plasma 5.12.7; Frameworks 5.47.0; QT 5.9.5

Would not I be able to group your 3 apps into a single one, as was Active Window Control? It would make the installation and configuration process much easier.
Congratulations on the job.

How do I uninstall and remove the settings? The application settings are retained even if it is not active on the panel.

I installed this and it is working as expected for everything except Firefox. Is this a packaging issue with my distro? (KaOS Linux)

this is a general issue for Firefox and plasma global menus. It is not related to this applet. If you search the internet "plasma kde how to show global menu" you will find out what is going on. In Tumbleweed it does not work even for me but in ubuntu derivative distros it should work.

you are missing some packages from your distro that must be installed in your system, you should request for help from your distro packagers or users

I have the same problem. I'm trying to install at one time but unfortunately I could not. It should provide a more convenient way to install.
