View Full Version : [kubuntu] Kubuntu Netbook Remix (lucid) no window borders

May 3rd, 2010, 05:05 PM
After upgrading from Karmic to Lucid on Kubuntu Netbook Remix, the window borders and titlebars have all disappeared. Using the Alt-Click trick allows me to see them on a per-window basis, but I wish to restore the old behaviour.

Maximus is not installed or running and there appears to be a bug when using Microsoft Office 2007 in CrossOver Office as the drop down menu of KDE blanks out the top half of the ribbon interface.

Does anyone know how to turn off this maximising windows nonsense on Kubuntu?

OK at least have the proper maximise behaviour now.

Do an Alt-F3, click on Configure Window Behaviour and under Advanced change the positioning to Smart.

The drop-down menu's issue with Wine programs still persists though (it's like it is owning the Xorg expose region, even when it is not visible).

Hi there! I manage to fix this problem by doing the following:

Edit the file


in the [Windows] section change the




and the logout and login.

I hope it will work for you too!
