I'm brand new to Linux and Ubunto 10.04.On the menu bar at the top of my desktop I seem to have attracted some kind of bug!The Log Out Symbol repeats itself across almost the entire menu bar and I cannot remove it. If I remove other buttons from the menu the space is immediately replaced by more Log Out Buttons.When I hover on the icon I get the message 'Log out of this session to log in as a different user' and when I right-cllick to click on 'Remove from Panel' or 'Move' nothing happens.It is not possible to right-click on another part of the menu bar to change the Menu Properties.

I can't seem to hide any items on the "Games" menu from "Main Menu" (System->Preferences->Main Menu). I can hide items on all of the other menus under the main one but the game links won't change. Is there another way to do this?
I tried the ubuntu 11.04, the desktop is different from the gnome,I want to customize the top menu, for example, adding a button to close it or auto hide it? In gnome I just need to right-click to get the preferences
I found this documentation on how to edit the menu source file:but I have no environment variable $XDG_DATA_HOME or $KDEDIR. I am running Ubuntu 9.04. Also, after I have edited the menu file, do I have to restart to see that it worked?Also, if there is an easier way to customize, I would like to know that as well.
just want to report "Right Mouse Click Freeze" on Ubuntu 10.10. When I click on anything with my right mouse button to open options menu it freezes and does not open menu. Sometimes when I shake my mouse left/right a bit it opens that menu, but this does not work always. It seems like xserver issue, but I'm not sure since I'm not expert in linux yet. It's very annoying issue that I would like to resolve asap.

In my top right corner I got all my Ubuntu appindicators that come with Ubuntu 11.04. I also have Dropbox, caffeine and screenlets. Problem is that I cant click on dropbox, caffeine, battery indicator, wlan or sound indicator until I first click on messages menu and slide over to appindicator that I need. When screenlets appindicator is not present there is no problem. Its the same when I had Jupiter installed.
upgrading to the latest kernel, which my Ubuntu 10.04 did automatically, I cannot shutdown, suspend, or restart from the main menu.In other words, I click ubuntu logo on the taskbar, click Shutown and select Shut Down or any of the remaining 2 options, but nothing happens. Just the menu window disappears.I had adjusted the power button of my notebook to shut down the computer and this works now.
I'm trying to make the Debian sub menu appear by clicking 'on' the Debian box in System -> Preferences -> Main Menu but when I exit the Debian sub menu doesn't appear. One post I found talked about ROOT owning the directories, but not sure if that is the case with me or not.
I last asked this four years ago and got a response with a very lengthy script that had to be run at boot time, in terminal mode.
The icons for the main menu are not appearing and the option that allowed them to be displayed under the main menu window is not there anymore. How do I get my icons back, it is looking quite bare and boring without them.
But i found one annoying thing, when we change background of the top panel, it does not change background of the menu (Applications Places etc).Actually I have shifted the top panel to left, It doesn't look good due to repeating background image vertically
i miss having a shutdown button in the gnome main menu (not the menu bar). if you right click on the icon for gnome main menu and click "Edit Menus", it opens up alacarte and you can add/edit/delete menu items.i want to add the shutdown menu item. so, i click "Add Item". my question is, what is the command to open the shutdown window? the application that asks you if you want to shutdown or restart?
After a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04 and having installed a bunch of apps, I wanted to adjust the main menu but have found that I can't actually launch the main menu from the System / Preferences menu. Nothing happens.ried typing the Main Menu command alacarte into terminal, and I get the following read out.
jvc@CF1:~$ alacarte Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 36, in <module>
I'm trying to set up my system(Ubuntu 10.04hat the main menu and its contents (application, places, system, etc) do not appear(or are hidden in such a way that the user cannot access it). This sounds counter-intuitive. I know. I tried deleting them by hand,but they reappear after every reboot. Is there a system file with preferences that I can edit or something else that can be done?
I want to reduce the thickness of a panel but it is restricted by the main menu with "places" and "system". Is there any thing I can do to reduce the thickness of main menu and hence the thickness of panel?
I'm trying to configure Ubuntu 10.04 for my personal tastes. I have already done a lot but I need help in continuing my endeavour., I come here, having Googled my query and receiving no help, to ask you lot.The icons on the main menu (the one that only has the black Ubuntu logo; not the default three menu one) looks simply vulgar so I want to remove them. I was able to do so in the past but now it eludes me. I think having the icons for everything looks unprofessional and cluttered. Is there a way I can remove those nasty icons from the menu?So it is clear, I'm talking about the Swiss Army knife, cards, and etc on the main menu and all the other icons on the sub-menus.
Alright so I recently started using Cardapio with the intent of replacing the panels with a single dock. The only thing left to do is to replace the docky icon with the cardapio menu. Apparently there is a key in the gconf-editor apps/docky-2/Docky/Items/DockyItem that can be used to change what the docky icon does. I am unable to find the folder DockyItems in the hierarchy. I added both the folder and the key but it makes no change. I'm using the latest Docky build and Ubuntu 10.10 so things may have changed since the write-ups on how to do this. Has anyone successfully added the menu functionality with the latest versions or at least figured out where the DockyItems went to? its the last thing I'm changing on my desktop... PS. Is there any way to add the notification area/user logout to the dock as well?
