Ubuntu :: Menu Bar Not Showing Have Disappeared In Ubuntu Desktop
May 4, 2011
I installed ubuntu desktop on a friends desktop a few weeks ago then they call me and say the menubar on the top is not showing up.how can i get it back and if it disappears what should i tell them to do to bring it back in the future ,i dont want to re install it if they are gonna have trouble.
I got Ubuntu 9.10 running very well. ever since this morning when i booted i have that weird Panel on the desktop towards the left. It is showing basically the Application menu. I dont know why? I know i did not change anything. Also since this morning my right klick on the desktop nothing happen either? i dont want that on the Desktop!
I've been using Ubuntu for about 5 years now. I just installed it on one of my neighbors computers.I tried deleting an applet from the top menu bar and the entire menu bar disappeared. I click on the add new menu bar and it just throws something up on the side. I'm using 10.04. I never had this problem before.
Our laptop all of a sudden will not connect with our usual wifi network connection which has disappeared & now mysteriously shows dd-wrt . It shows an internet connection has been establihed with dd-wrt but does not work.
I think this occurred after I used Update Manager, but the shutdown menu up the top right has disappeared! In its place is my name (like a repeat from the chat menu). I know I can restart with: sudo shutdown -r now But why has this error occurred?
I have been running a dual boot 9.04/xp setup without major problems for nearly a year now.(just an unresolved kyocera printer problem)
I have had issues with windows and recently needed to reinstall windows. To do this I created a slipstreamed SP3 disk. I switched to boot priority to CD and ran a repair install from there, trouble was this gave me two installs of windows at the boot menu but ubuntu disappeared from the menu at this point.
I successfully ran the repair install again from the original windows install.
I then deleted the second windows installation.
Now it boots straight to windows without the boot menu at all.
When I right-click somewhere and the pop-menu shows up with options like 'copy', 'paste' and so on it wasn't supposed to be icons in front of these items?Actually, a lot of applications like Firefox aren't showing icons on their menus
I was recently having problems with Me TV, and I had to kill it in a terminal window. When I killed it, it didn't release the DVB-T stick and when I launched Kaffeine, it told me that there was no device available. I re-booted rather than trying to figure out where the lock file was or whatever the problem might have been. Now, when I boot into my desktop, I am missing the menu bar and the task bar. Also, under Applications -> Settings -> XFCE Settings Manager, the Panel icon doesn't launch any settings dialog when clicked. How can I get my menu bar and task bar back?
I had to reload my XP partition and my grub menu disappeared. I followed direction from this web page [URL]. I followed Method 1. After I rebooted I got a command prompt with a notice stating Minimal BASH-like line editing is suppoerted. When I input the final command of sudo update-grub I get the unknown command error. I cannot get to either XP or Ubuntu is there anything I can do short of reloading my ubuntu?
Today I upgraded to the final release of Ubuntu 11.04. The upgrade completed successfully, but after restarting, the menu and all panels disappeared, even window borders. I tried to restart the PC, but same problem.
I'm an unexperiences Ubuntu user havning installed a dual boot with Windows XP and Ubuntu 9.10. However, when I'm booting my system now, the Windows option has disappeared from the menu, and the list only contains many different updates of my Ubuntu system. Can anyone try to explain me how I can retain my Windows option?I onlyuse Ubuntu for programming purposes, so skills regarding this topic is very poor
after a lot of testing and tweaking done in natty 64 bit while running as live usb, i decided to install it clean on my laptop. everything is working fine (courtesy the time i spent to get things work in live usb) i installed gnome shell too and now have an option of unity / gnome shell and classic.
today being the 2nd day, i got the following problems.
a) the global menu that was being displayed in unity is not working. its funny to note that firefox global menu is working but not for nautilus or any other apps.
b) conky is displayed in unity and classic desktop but not in gnome-shell. i also followed this link to get it working in start up = > [URL]
still not working. when i issue the top command, i can see that conky is listed in the processes but not displayed..
I just installed lubuntu.I don't see the possibility to share resources in my lan: there isn't the contextual menu item "share files or folders": why? is this normal on lubuntu? I have already installed samba
Today I installed a fresh copy of F12 and I noticed that I have no icons in any menu of any application - Desktop, Nautilus, Firefox, Pidgin, OpenOffice - nowhere.I only have them in the Main Gnome Menu and that's it.Does any body know what can cause this problem and how to fix it?BTW,I've been using Fedora starting from F6 and I can claim that F12 is indeed one of the most awful release that I've seen I used to successfully upgrade to each next major release up to F11, but F12 made me completely reinstall my OS, cause there were tones of bugs after the upgrade including not working WiFi
I installed Wine and several menu entries were created in my GNOME applications menu. However, when I went to change the menu items later, (Through [Edit Menus]), the Wine Menu folder was replaced with the 'Other' folder, and the layout of the Wine Menu was destroyed.
I recently made the switch to Ubuntu 10.10 desktop version, I have been running the OS smoothly for about 2 weeks now. However, when I turned on my laptop this morning my wallpaper is now plain white, my desktop items have disappeared and my top panel has been removed. (I replaced the panel at the bottom of the screen with a docky dock, which appears to be working fine).
I accidentally deleted a system directory so I had to reinstall. I reinstalled, and setup my users again in the same way. When I tried to copy my user files from a saved source, they now appear on the desktop in mass. What I expect is that only files in the Desktop directory show on the desktop, instead all files in the home directory show on the desktop, less the dot files. I can not figure out how the system controls what files show up on the desktop. Comparing the problem user to a working user failed to disclose the difference.
Recently I installed Debuan "jessie". I previously had Windows 8.1 and Xubuntu installed. After installation Debian installed it's own version of GRUB, with entries for Debian, Xubuntu and Windows. The problem is that after I selected Windows when booting, GRUB menu no longer appears. It boots straight into Windows.
It's lenovo Ideapad z510 laptop, with special button that allows me to select between 4 options before booting - one of them is "Boot menu".
I didn't use it before windows "removed" GRUB, but now there are 2 options: Windows boot loader and Ubuntu. When I select Ubuntu it loads my old boot menu (from before installing Debian).
I thought that when I use update-grub from Xubuntu I will at least eb able to boot into debian. After I did that Debian option appeared in the GRUB menu, but it didn't work - black screen.
How to get GRUB menu working again (and avoid replacing it by windows boot loader)?
I recently had a problem that was bugging me for several days. I figured that I should probably make a post on it in case anyone else ran across thesame problem. My gnome desktop was not showing up after reboot, and everytime I booted, I had to kill nautilus to get it to come back.
Code: killall nautilus After looking around for a while, I found this post: http://www.linuxquestions.org
right now am posting this from ubuntu safe mode, when i login normally what i get is just a plain space without desktop alt+f2 also not working there, only thing i can do from there is ctrl+alt+del and a window came without borders and i can restart or shutdown pc.
i had installed compiz configuration window and tried to enable cube desktop and it showed some conflict with other plugins and i had pressed disable this plugin and all tick mark in that configuration window gone after that this problem occurred
I must have accidentally hit something and as a result the panel at the bottom with the KDE menu and so on is gone. I can recreate widgets and panels but not as the default menu bar at the bottom of the screen. So, now everytime I push something in the background, I have no way to recover it. How do I restore the original default menu bar/panel?
