I began to search for a solution to this problem but didn't find an answer. Here is my problem:
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 lts, 64bit on a HP Pavilion dv6095ea and with the default unity environment setup.
For some strange reason I can't find a way to get the menu bar to show in many programs such as f. ex. the file explorer. This is often very annoying because many options are only accessible through the menu (I think).
Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Thank you for helping!
