Missing File Menu bar

#1 Post by rabideau » 2010-11-26 19:29

Somehow I am unable to view or retrieve the File Menu bar. I am running 3.3.3 on ubuntu linux and the bar with File Edit etc. is gone. How do I reset?

I have deleted all hidden dirs and installed twice without success.

First, get the latest version. Can be downloaded from this homepage. If the problem persists, post a screenshot of your FileZilla, please.

Odd. I guess we must wait for botg... Does it appear when pressing <ALT>?

Unfortunately no... leider nein.

It seems simply to have disappeared...

Known issue, looks like a bug in either wxWidgets or GTK+. Changing your GTK+ theme and back again should fix it.

As it turns out it is a bug in wxWidgets, most likely triggered by changed behaviour of the GTK+ library.

I have committed a fix to the wxWidgets repository, see http://svn.wxwidgets.org/viewvc/wx?view ... sion=66344

Any idea when this might trickle down into an update?

I've just done an update that brought in some stuff from wx and the problem is still there.

Thanks,
matt

A quick solution is described here.
More explanations here.
i.e. just use this as shortcut to start filezilla:

Code: Select all

sh -c "export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0; filezilla"
I resolved it definitively by removing all appmenu apps :)

That's not the correct solution.

Instead, you may want to apply the following patch to wxWidgets: http://svn.wxwidgets.org/viewvc/wx?view ... sion=66344

Well I do not say it is the correct one, but the problem appeared right after i installed this appmenu indicator packages...
So for Ubuntu Maverick these packages break things... incl Audacity's menus etc...

As far as i am concerned... i do not need those appmenu things....
And applying a patch to wx sources and rebuilding them into debs... is far complicated for an ordinary user to do...
Perhaps a bug report should be added to launchpad... but i do not have that time...

BTW i registred and posted here this quick fix, just because i got here when googled for the problem...
So ...
Who needs this fixed... that is a solution that works currently in stock Ubuntu Maverick...
