    Window Title Bar Disappears

    8.10 Ubuntu

    I wanted to see how the "extra" visual effects looked, because I had never enabled them, and I decided I didn't care for them. After setting visual effects back to normal, some window title bars will disappear/reappear with mouse movement over/around them.

    I just installed 8.10 tonight, and all I have done done the initial system-wide upgrade, and enable the restricted drivers for nvidia. This problem didn't happen until the switch of visual effects.

    What should I do to fix this?

    Try this.

    Copy and Paste into a Terminal:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir -p ~/.config/compiz/ && echo USE_EMERALD="no" >> ~/.config/compiz/compiz-manager

    Re: Window Title Bar Disappears

    I ended up finding another thread regarding this issue. It suggested changing the appearance>theme>cutomize>window border to glossy. This worked, so I didn't feel the need to do what you suggested.

    What exactly will the command(s) you suggested do? I hate feeling like my fresh install of Ubuntu is broken. Do you think it might be because I am using the nvidia restricted driver?
