I have just upgraded from 10.10 to 11.04

Using gnome I can no longer see the title bars of any windows or the minimise, restore and close buttons.

Example is shown here:

Can anybody help me with this?

Do you have compiz activated? If so, try:
compiz --replace
If don't, try:
metacity --replace

I'm thinking this is a problem between 10.10 and 11.04's implementations of Compiz. We've been seeing a lot of these, some more serious than others.

To the OP, try switching to Metacity as your Window Manager ( metacity --replace ) and reinstalling Compiz from the Software Center or Synaptic. Notice that the Compiz settings manager is now called compizconfig-settings-manager, and there may be some other package name chnages.
