Hi,

I'm trying Compiz in my Ubuntu 8.04 and enjoying, but I lost the menu bar of the windows...

How can I restore it?

Sorry,

But this cannot help me...

I find for "menu" or "menu bar" in the URL, but no matches were found...

If you know how to restore the menu bar fo the windows, please, tell me how.

right click on one panel then: new panel, if you lost the entire task bar, or add to panel: Window list.

Sorry, but it doesn't work too...

I'm using Compiz, most of their effects, I'm enjoying, but every window in my system has no Menu Bar (File > Edit > whatever > ...)

How can I restore the Menu Bar for every window in my system?

that is strange indeed.
Did you try turning off effects?

This happens on my machine as well. I usually turn off Compiz because of this problem.

menu bars... i get it... ugly problem, happend to me too in mandriva, try:

metacity --replace

in terminal... what were you're last actions on the PC before the menu bar disappeared? Were you informed about the error? (by the PC of course)

You can try to download KDE:


sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude install kubuntu-desktop


uninstall gnome (i guess... "remove ubuntu-desktop) and reinstall it...
