View Full Version : [SOLVED] Window borders on Unity

April 4th, 2012, 08:24 PM
I lost my window borders (and title bar and so the close button).

I don't know how that happened.

How can I get it back?

Anybody there?

I read somewhere, I should use something like:

metacity --replace

But I don't think it's for unity, maybe it's for Gnome classic.

Help please...

If you're using Unity 3D, looks like you messed up Compiz somehow. Try reseting the profile:

gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1
Or this if 11.04:

gconftool --recursive-unset /apps/compiz

CompizConfig Settings Manager
Once open, scroll down to the Effects section, where you will see Window Decoration is not enabled. Simply click the check box to the left of it, and you should see your window borders reappear.

if it isnít installed, just run sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager in a terminal.:popcorn:

Usually running in the terminal...

gtk-window-decorator --replace & disown
will bring them back.
