    Many Times, Titlebar is missing...

    Hey guys,

    I am on ubuntu 10.10 (aka Maverick Meerkat) . My problem is many times when I log in into ubuntu.. My window's Titlebar is missing.. it won't come even if I change themes or anything else. If I'm going for restart, it will come back... It happens too often and I hate this.. Please advice.

    Have you toyed around with Emerald for windows decoration? It sounds like a problem with that.

    What happens if you hit Alt-F2 and when the dialog pops up you type --metacity replace (enter)?

    Try pressing Alt+F2 then put in gtk-window-decorator --replace

    Yes sir, I have installed "Compiz". & I would like to keep it if it's possible...
    In another settings of compiz, "Select Window Decorator" is set to "GTK Window Decorator" (by default)..

    BlazeFire,
    Thank you for that tip.. By typing that, My titlebar came back instantly.. But does that mean that i will have to type that whenever this happens?

    For emerald:
    To install them, go to: System > Preferences > Emerald Theme Manager and click the "Import" button and select the themes you want. To make your windows use Emerald, go to System > Preferences > CompizConfig Settings Manager and enable "Window Decoration", then click it and under "Command", enter:
    emerald --replace
    Then to run it for the first time, press Alt + F2 and type:
    emerald --replace
    For GTK:
    CompizConfig Settings Manager and enable "Window Decoration", then click it and under "Command", enter:
    /usr/bin/compiz-decorator

    Try going to System -> Preferences -> Startup Applications then click on "Add". Type it in the command and name it whatever you want.

    Question Re: Many Times, Titlebar is missing...

    any other suggestions?

    I've tried all of the above and nothing restores the window decorations while running compiz.
