    Can see the nautilus menu in Desktop when using Gnome Shell

    Hi, when I update my system several weeks ago, I started to see the nautilus menu in my desktop! I saw this because I had a transparent Gnome Shell panel.

    Today I re installed Ubuntu and things seems to be ok. Then I installed a shell extension which will hide the top menu... When its hidden, I can again see the menu! Anyone know how to get rid of it?

    Check the attached image... Its a gnome shell environment in Ubuntu. The top panel is hidden!

    Run this command; then relogin:
    Code:
    echo '[ "$DESKTOP_SESSION" != "ubuntu" ] && [ "$DESKTOP_SESSION" != "ubuntu-2d" ] && unset UBUNTU_MENUPROXY' | sudo tee /etc/X11/Xsession.d/81ubuntu-menu-proxy
    Regards.

    Krytarik, I recognise your snippet above as a slightly modified version of something I have posted about here and elsewhere. Apart from ubuntu (Unity), your version fixes it for ubuntu-2d which I must admit I forgot about. Given that, a slightly neater solution is:

    Code:
    echo '[ ${DESKTOP_SESSION#ubuntu} = $DESKTOP_SESSION ] && unset UBUNTU_MENUPROXY' | sudo tee /etc/X11/Xsession.d/81ubuntu-menu-proxy

    Yeah, exactly, I've modified your command to exclude Unity 2D as well. And I'll test your new, more streamlined version later. Thanks!

    It is depressing that this trivial bug has not been fixed officially though.

    Is it only appearing when using Gnome Shell or does Unity get that menu? (I didn't checked )

    If its only in Gnome Shell, then Ubuntu really hates it

    Actually it appears when using 'Cinnamon Desktop' also.

    However we can make it disappear temporarily if we TURN OFF "Have file manager handle desktop" with "Advanced Settings (gnome-tweak-tool)"..., but this is not an essential solution.

    This will disable the desktop icons Can you please try markbl's solution and tell us the results?

    Okay, I'll try it tomorrow and tell you the results, because it is the time to go to bed in Japan...
    See you later!
