Ubuntu :: 10.04, Java 6 Update 24 Has Removed Windows Title Bars From Most Windows In Desktop

Mar 25, 2011

I am a ubuntu novice. I am running 10.04 LTS on a Lenova laptop. Runs fine. Yesterday upgraded firefox and upgraded Java 6 from update 20 to update 24 so that I could use the Zotero bibiliographic program in FF. After the upgrade and restart, the windows title bar that includes minimize, maximize and close buttons has disappeared from all windows that I open except google chrome. If I open and app, or FF, or the dvd player, title bar is gone. I have noticed that Java updates have caused similar problems before but none of the prescribed steps seems to have changed my system

Ubuntu :: Cannot Move Windows By Dragging Their Title Bars - Cannot See Close "X" Button In The Title Bar

Feb 8, 2010

Everything worked 100% great untill I change color depth to 16 bits.I do not want 24 Bits, I want 16 Bits. I have good reasons. Never had this problem in Gutsy 7.10 ...I deeply regret in upgrading to 9.10 ...

My video card:

Gforce 7950 GX2

Changes to xorg.conf file: Firstly, I saved it at 16 color depth with the sudo nvidia-settings and by clicking on the save to xorg.conf file Button. Rebooted computer....... It worked, saved file, and I got the following bugs:

*Cannot move windows by dragging their title bars.
*Cannot see close "X" Button in the title bar.
*Cannot see Minimize Button in the title bar.
*Cannot see Maximize Button in the title bar.

Went back to 24 bits and problem got resolved. Then i tryed: I did sudo gedit xorg.conf I changed all the 24's with 16's ... Rebooted computer....... It works GOOD... BUT: I got the same bugs from before. I will retype them below

*Cannot move windows by dragging their title bars.
*Cannot see close "X" Button in the title bar.
*Cannot see Minimize Button in the title bar.
*Cannot see Maximize Button in the title bar.

My xorg.conf file:

# nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
# nvidia-settings: version 1.0 (buildd@palmer) Sun Feb 1 20:21:04 UTC 2009

Ubuntu :: Windows Manager Not Working, No Title Bars, No Window Buttons?

Dec 12, 2010

Today upon booting my Xubuntu 9.04, I see that all new windows I open have their title bar missing and on top of my pannel menu. If I try to run windows manager from the menu, nothing shows up on the screen. Therefore I think my windows manager is not running at all. I have no graphic effects and dont want any. I noticed that nothing shows up on the task bar (bottom bar) when I have anything opened up in the desktop. Can't minimize, can't click close button, ...How do I fix this ? I followed a thread to install Compiz and emerald just so I could get it to work but I do not like this option. I do not want any special effects. The more effects/options I have the more possible problems I may get. By the way I also have this problem on my office Ubuntu 10.04. Both started having this problem recently. I suspect it is an update that was done that is causing this.

OpenSUSE :: Gnome Do - Compiz Causes All Windows Title Bars To Disappear

Mar 25, 2009

So I've been testing Gnome Do and I now want to activate docky. To do that I have to activate the desktop effects, so I installed drivers for my graphics card which work fine. But I have an infamous issue with my compiz which causes all title bars of windows to disappear. Is there a solution in which I can activate docky and still have my title bars?

Ubuntu :: Missing Title Bars After Update In Xubuntu

Mar 23, 2011

The title bars / window decorations are missing since the last update done about two days ago. I have AMD64 / nvidia 6600 / 2GB / compiz. Latest driver is installed for nvidia and it was working without any problems since 9.04. Now I find that desktop visual effects are selected as 'None' and I am unable to make it 'extra'. Earlier it was set as custom and I had no problems. I have searched the forums and tried many solutions without any success. Now I am running metacity (metacity --replace)with no visual effects, 'compiz --replace' brings back the problem . Is there any way of enabling visual effects // compiz now? Or do I have to re-instal the whole thing

Ubuntu :: Title Bars Gone And Now Nothing Showing?

May 13, 2011

'm running Windows 7 and Ubuntu 11.04 dual-boot. After installing Ubuntu, I installed CompizConfig. So, here's my problem. I tried to enable the 3d workspace seitcher and when I did the title bars for all the windows disappeared. And I couldn't disable the 3d switcher. Not knowing what else to do, I restarted the computer. Now when I log in, it goes to my wallpaper but nothing works. All can do is shut down/restart by pressing ctrl alt delete. Is there anything I can do other than reinstalling?

Ubuntu :: Too Thick Title Bars In Eclipse

Jul 20, 2010

Eclipse has too thick title bars (see attachment), even when changing the default font size from 10 to 8 the font changes, but the borders remain the same.Tested with Eclipse 3.6 in Ubuntu 10.04, Kubuntu 10.04 and Fedora 13.In Windows XP the title bars are thinner (in Eclipse 3.5 and 3.6), and also remain the same when changing the default font size from 8 to 10.

So the default font size differs in those two OS'es.It looks like the title bars under Linux are designed for 10px fonts, whereas in Windows for 8px.What are your experiences with Eclipse?

Ubuntu :: Moving Window Title Bars To Top Panel Like UNR

Jan 13, 2010

I just moved from the netbook remix of Ubuntu to the normal version... I really didn't like the desktop layout of UNR. One feature I did like, though, was that every time a window was maximized, the title bar was integrated into part of the top panel... which saved a lot of space on this tiny little screen. Is there a nice way to get that feature on the normal version of Ubuntu?

Ubuntu :: Title Bars Disappeared And Other Window Manager Breakage?

May 23, 2011

I came into work this morning to find XFCE's window manager completely broken: no title bars, unable to move windows around, and unable to focus on a window to type in it (terminal, browser address bar, etc.). I tried going into the preferences then window manager settings, but just got a blank panel. Deleting .config/xfce4 didn't solve the problem.

I'm thinking of just doing a clean install of Xubuntu, or more likely another Xfce-based distro, since my current setup (regular Ubuntu with Xubuntu also installed) is quite messed up (same startup applications being used for Gnome and Xfce, and various other issues). I can't remember whether I did any updates last Friday that might have broken it.

Interestingly I used to have similar issues with Xmonad when I used it - some features didn't work properly and I had to restart the WM to fix them. Never did find a proper solution.

Ubuntu :: Windows Without Scroll Bars In UNR?

Jun 4, 2010

I am having a problem with Ubuntu Netbook Remix. I couldn't stand the new UI with the huge icons taking up my screen, and the maximize/minimize/close buttons displaced, so I enabled the normal Gnome desktop on my netbook. However, with my tiny screen I am seeing that some windows have lost all of the information, and no scrollbar is present.

For instance, when attempting to change account settings in Mozilla Thunderbird, some of the options would extend beyond the bottom of the windows where "cancel" and "ok" are found, but the window ends and no option to scroll down to the missing information exists. A similar problem happens when I try to make adjustments to some items in system administration.

Ubuntu :: 11.04 Missing Min / Max Bars On Windows

Apr 29, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 11.04 (gnome flavor ) on my notebook.Everything installed fine except that I'm seeing three problems I'm hoping someone can help me with (or point me in the right direction).

1. When I open any window (gcalc or Firefox for example), the 3 little buttons which are used to maximize, close, etc...) are missing. So basically in order to exit any app, I have to do it through the application rather than clicking the close button. If you go to Themes, you can see what I'm talking about. For example, the theme 'ClearLook' show's the buttons. If I choose this, these buttons are not there.Any ideas why this is happening or how I can fix it?

2. When I open any application, it positions itself in the upper left hand corner of my screen. The menu of the application is tucked under the Gnome menu bar, so basically to use any application requires me to move it first.so I can get to the app menu.

3. When I open any application, I'm unable to position the mouse such that I can resize the window. Its like the mouse cursor can't find the the fine line where it changes so that I can grab the screen to increase or decrease it.

Fedora :: See The Text On Dropdown Menus And Title Bars

owners out there they released the KindleforPC program today. As expected it's only Windows and (soon) Mac, BUT it WILL run on Linux under Wine with only a couple of oddities. (Such as not being able to see the text on dropdown menus and title bars. If you click into a book it'll load for reading, you just can't see any of the menuing.

Ubuntu :: Keep Losing Title Bar From Windows?

Oct 17, 2010

Every now and then (that is two or three times a day) the title bar (the one with the exit/minimise/maximise icons on it) disappears from all open windows and any I subsequently open.

The only way to get it back is to reboot.

Not critical, but a nuisance.

Ubuntu 10.10 Fresh install, nVidia drivers activated.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Killed Windows Title Bar

May 3, 2011

I created a 2nd login that I set up with Gnome instead of Unity. Unity has a few things that drive me nuts like no notification area among other things. I want to still be able to access Unity to try to get used to it, but will probably use gnome mainly.Anyway, I like using the compiz desktop cube effect (also something I could not do in Unity). When I activated it, all my title bars (the top bar in most all windows) vanished. I have seen this before, but the normal fixes aren't working.

This is one thing that still bugs me about Linux/Ubuntu. A couple clicks and you just hose your desktop/ computer. It is not that easy to screw up a windows machine. It isn't even as if I clicked on something wrong.Is there a something about 11.04 that causes a bigger problem with compiz?

Ubuntu :: Startup Without Windows' Borders - Shadows And Title Bar?

Nov 25, 2010

I have searched around but did not find anything similar, so I make a new post. I have installed Mac4Lin icons, theme and font, and I am using Emerald (with "emerald --replace" command in the window manager of compiz) and everythin is fine.

Some few times (every 4~5 days), when I start the system, it opens up as the title, like Emerald is not starting or something. If I logoff and then logon again, it is fine. Not that is a serious problem... just annoying in case you want to demonstrate the "power of the system" in an important meeting and it shows up like that.

Software :: Remove Title Bar From Maximized Windows?

Dec 8, 2010

I wish to remove title bar from maximized windows. It's mostly empty and takes screenspace, and now there's this Panel Buttons application, allowing me to have Close, Minimize and Maximize in the panel instead.

The program Maximus does the job, but there's a bug in it, sometimes making the panel invisible when closing windows. Compiz has a function disabling Emerald in maximized windows, but it requires having the ability of activating visual effects - which my graphic card drivers won't allow. The window manager OpenBox has a similar function but it's not permanent and besides I wasn't satisfied with it for different other reasons.

how to remove the title bar? Aternatives to Maximus? Configuring Metacity or instructions how to modify a Metacity theme to remove the title bar from the maxed windows?

Ubuntu :: New Windows Title Bar Initially Buried By Unity's Top Menu

Jun 25, 2011

Starting and application or opening new windows on my machine takes two hands. Once hand with the mouse and one with the alt-key, before I can have normal control over the window. In normal control, I mean the ability to move, minimize and exit the window. That's because every time I start a new application or open a new application window it opens to the top left of the screen.The title bar of the window is buried below Unity's top menu bar. That means I can't grab the window by the title bar to move it or minimize it. I have to hold down the alt-key then grab with the mouse to position the window in a location where I can properly view it (closer to the center of the monitor on my right).I might be missing something if there is an option I can set so the new window locations can remember the position and size from last closed.This is very annoying, whereas I open and lost lots of windows during the course of working. Even browsing this forum, I click on the new posts option and right click on topics from the list to read from a new window. After finishing with that topic I close the window. Often I might open up two or three windows in that topic to type replies or review references mentioned in that topic. Then I close all the windows and open up a new window with the next topic of interest.

It's bad enough that the OS doesn't remember the preferred size and position of the window. But if it were possible to just drive and the window to the position and resist only using the mouse, it would be great, since my hand is already on the mouse. But because the title menu is buried under Unity's Top Menu, I have to hold down the alt-key with my left hand while dragging the mouse with my right hand.If no one has a fix or suggestion and this is affecting everyone, I guess it'll be off to the bug/feature forum to inform the developers of the problem.

Ubuntu :: Disable Menu Bars In Windows And Force Global Appmenu?

May 26, 2011

I'm using Filezilla in Natty and it keeps bringing up its own menu bar in its own window.

Obviously I want all my applications to only use the top new Global Appmenu Bar. It currently makes Filezilla look ugly and take up additional unwanted screen space.

Libreoffice fixes are all I can find. Does anyone know how to stop an application from using its own menu bar, and force it to only use the Global App Menu?

Debian Multimedia :: Title Bar And Menu Of Windows In Gnome Are Gone?

Dec 21, 2010

I don`t know what kind of combination of keys I pressed, but the title bar of all windows in my Gnome vanished. Trying to fix it, I unmarked the option "show menu bar" in one of my windows. Then, I realised I couldn`t put it back either. It`s kind of frustating be stuck in such a small problem, but Gnome isn`t offering me any easy way to put these things back in place. maybe with a keyboard combination of keys that recovers all of this?

I did it, it recovered Gnome windows default, but the menus are still gone. It just erased my customizations (colors, window color, bar size, etc.)

Sometimes when I start up linux the buttons to close, maximize, and minimize windows and the Application title bar disappear. Restarting usually fixes the problem.

Do you have any ideas why this would happen? Is there a command that will restart gnome without having to restart the computer?
