    Question Window control buttons gone - can I reinstall them?

    After several reboots, it appears that my window buttons (for any program window) are permanently gone. If clarification is needed, I do mean that bar which contains the Minimize, Maximize, and Close buttons is no longer present as part of the windows for any program which I have been using. Apparently some corruption factor killed this part of Xubuntu or Xfce, and it is an unfortunate PIA because I spent a lot of time setting up this system just a few weeks ago. I suppose if corrupting factors (whatever they may be) took out my window buttons I may have lost something else too, but for now I'd prefer to take that chance because I really haven't time for another reinstall and system migration this month. Is the window button bar available somewhere so that I can reinstall just that?

    Window manager has crashed. Have a look at this thread for a resolution: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2134116

    Thanks, that did it. I did have to clear my cache, after that it starts normal.
