[Solved] Menu bar does not show up in Ubuntu 10

Postby bamim2 » 20. Jan 2011, 17:56

I have Ubuntu 10 running as a guest inside a Windows 7 Pro 64 bit host. When I start Ubuntu in full screen mode I can see the menu at the bottom of the screen, but after I've logged into Ubuntu, the menu bar is gone. I realize it's supposed to stay out of the way, so it goes away on its own, but no matter where I put the mouse I can't get the menu bar to show up.

I can press "Host F" to get out of Full Screen mode & everything else seems to work as it should. I originally installed Ubuntu 10 VM on another system & another version of VB. I saved the hard drive & set up a new Ubuntu session & just used the hard drive from the old session. As I said, everything else appears to be working fine.

Although I don't remember specifically that it worked originally, I'm "pretty sure" it did. I have 5 guests installed, including Windows 7 Pro (32 bit), Windows 2003 Server, Windows 2008 Server, Windows XP & Solaris 10 & the menu bar shows up on all of the others.

Does anyone have any idea why the bar doesn't show up or how I can get it to show up?

I'm afraid not, but if all else fails you can hit HOST+Home to get a popup menu at the mouse cursor with the bar's options.

I changed my host OS from a Windows 64 bit OS to Ubuntu 10 64 bit OS & now I don't have this problem any longer. How do I mark this as "Resolved"?
