    Gnome gui issue

    Slightly annoying problem. Gnome top menu is missing. Right now I'm missing Ubuntu GUI for all my needs, but would prefer Gnome.

    Not sure how to trouble shoot this issue as I'm a new Linux user.

    Re: Gnome gui issue

    I'm not sure what you mean by your question; what menu exactly are you not seeing?

    The new ubuntu gnome GUI does not use a standard menu by default; it has an overview of applications installed if you click on the 9-dot icon bottom-left of the screen, or is that what's missing?
    I think there is also a menu extension that can be enabled, perhaps after installing it first, using ubuntu-tweak but I do not use Ubuntu, preferring Xubuntu's classic GUI so I could be wrong about that.

    Re: Gnome gui issue

    when i installed ubuntu gamepack 16.04, it had two different gui's one which was called ubuntu..the one your talking about, probbaly a version of gnome, but the os also had a straight up gnome gui, two menu bars, one on top and one on the bottom, i installed gnome twitch, and then restarted. when ht desktop came back up. the top menu was gone. i could access everything through terminal code commands, but the gui interface is basicly disabled. right now im using the ubuntu gnome gui, which is pretty and conveniant, but the regular gnome gui has a couple features which i kinda like and cause of that, i am hoping to get that gui working again

    Re: Gnome gui issue

    Ubuntu game pack is an operating based on Ubuntu, so may not have the same GUI options as official Ubuntu. Not sure if they can legally use the Ubuntu name without official flavor status.

    Re: Gnome gui issue

    its on this page https://ualinux.com/en/ubuntu-gamepack ...anyways. all that is besides the point. look i had two menus, one on top and one on the bottom, the discription is all over the net. im not talking about the gui with the pretty toolbar on the left..im talking about a different gui

    https://www.gnome-look.org/p/1080260/

    this is the gui im talking about. when i log off, and go to log back on, i have an option to pick this gui or this one

    sighs, the frustrating thing is i explained all this. the topic was to help me get my tool bar back, not discuss who made what linux distro and whether or not is legal

    edit - - just looked at my original post and i did say missing by accident, ment to say i've been using a different gui till i get my problem fixed. anyways, my second post explains my problem a lot better

    Re: Gnome gui issue

    I am using gnome-panel, but it may be bungie or Mate.
    https://askubuntu.com/questions/6508...-are-available

    https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GnomeFlashback

    Or, if you're running either Ubuntu or Ubuntu GNOME you can install 'gnome-panel' which will provide GNOME Flashback session(s). The Flashback w/Metacity session is fairly comparable to MATE w/Marco in resource usage.

    I have always run gnome-panel/fallback/flashback even though name has changed. Originally somewhat like Mint as based on gnome3, but updated to gnome3 with old gnome2 top & bottom panels.

    If you have multiple desktops installed, you choose which to use when logging in. There is a small gear/star icon which when clicked will show what other sessions you have available.

    What they refer to as Ubuntu OEM of which game-pack is based on does offer Gnome Flashback which is what I think you may have seen. As I wrote they do offer different GUI options than Ubuntu. To find out what session is in use use the following command.
    Code:
    echo $XDG_CURRENT_DESKTOP

    We offer distributions Ubuntu*Pack with various embodiments of user interfaces:

    Unity - universal interface from the company Canonical, optimized for computers and tablets
    Flashback - classical view desktop style in GNOME 2 to GNOME 3 libraries
    GNOME - universal interface for computers and tablets. His other names - GNOME 3 and GNOME Shell
    GNOME 3 Classic - version of the classic representation of the GNOME 2 desktop in the GNOME 3 style
    Cinnamon - close to the style of the interface Windows uses GNOME 3
    MATE - further development of the classic GNOME 2 interface, works well on low-end PCs

    Re: Gnome gui issue

    using that code, the desktop im having issues with is:
    GNOME-Flashback:Unity

    because of the top menu bar being disabled for some odd reason, or missing. im using a desktop that shows up as "Unity" when entering that code.

    i cant even log out unless i use the terminal

    Re: Gnome gui issue

    Do you have have access to the screen-shot tool ? If so upload a screenshot using the paper clip attachment tool above the reply box . In the mean time I'll look for info on resetting the flashback session.

    This a terminal command used to reset the panel in the flashback session.

    Code:
    dconf reset -f /org/gnome/gnome-panel
