    Item missing from Menu Bar

    The settings/shut down button has disappeared from Ubuntu 13.10.

    Don't know what I did, or how to retrieve it

    There are issues with the indicators. Most notably is that the date-time indicator is sometimes not shown, but it also happens that other indicators are not properly initialized. It will reappear on reboot, or probably already upon logging out/logging in. That problem is know, and the fix should land soon in our system.

    Thank you vanadium. The time is showing, but not close down button. I'll wait for the fix. Thanks again

    +1.

    to restore the settings gear use this from a terminal.

    Code:
    setsid unity

    Yes. All was fine last night, but when I turned my computer on for the first time today, (about 3 hours ago), there is NO Menu Bar, and I cannot get Launcher bar to appear.

    After much tinkering, I found how to get settings box to appear, and was able to change Appearance - Behaviour box to disable Auto-hide the Launcher, but still, nother appears. I was able to enter the Terminal box via Ctrl + alt + T, and nothing has changed, and still no laucher bar and no menu bar.

    What can I do. I am typing this on another computer.

    I just closed down my computer (only I can by turning power off), still no Meno Bar, and no Launcher bar, so I don't have access to any programs, or the web. I got back into terminal, and again re-entered

    It ran through all the normal entry lines. I notice the last line of data entry says comiz (core) - error; Plugin 'composite' not loaded.



    Any ideas?

    Thanks Philinux!
    Yeah! Now I can see the clock! No more approximating the suns angle for this guy!

    Still having similar issues in Gnome, thou. Code::Blocks wont appear on my favourites bar (its still there, but no icon, just a blank slate) and my battery icon has disappeared from the screen (again, just a blank slate in the upper right conner of the screen. I can still open the tab if I move the cursor over it). Tried rebooting and even reloading Gnome via terminal but nothing happened.

    Any thoughts? Some one
