View Full Version : Eclipse Main Menu not appearing

November 6th, 2009, 09:32 AM
I have just upgraded my Ubuntu to 9.10. I was having problem with global menu so I removed it and now I am not able to see main menu bar(file,edit,view,project) in eclipse. Is there any way to get the menu back in eclipse?

Thanks for help.
I tried all those hack but still my menu bar is not appearing. I deleted eclipse and downloaded new one still it does not show me any main menu toolbar on top of eclipse window. I had mac4lin theme which I just uninstalled (thought it might be affecting to main menu). Do you have any other idea why this is happening?

I am going to install ubuntu again and see whether I can solve it or not.

Ubuntu(9.10) re-installation solved the problem. I had upgraded ubuntu from 9.04 to 9.10 but it didn't work but now its working... :)
