Menu bar gone

GNOME - Oct 21 2010
Question:When I turn on Compiz Fusion my top menu bar disappears.

I am very new to this app.,



Hopefully I can help you with this.

I recommend that you install applications called fusion icon.
apt-get install fusion-icon

It will be visible on your applications menu -->system applications (between internet and office sections)

Start it and it will jump to your top panel. Once you right click it you will get a menu opening where you choose settings manager. There you find various options which include window decorations. Enable this and you should get your standard window look back as you want it.

I recommend that you create an autostart for fusion icon
System->settings-->startup applications
add an entry with info:
name: fusion-icon
command: fusion-icon

Hopefully this helps you. Have a nice day

Personally, I'd disagree with Zack's answer without knowing further information.

Firstly, the questions:

1) Which distro are you using - Ubuntu, Fedora, something else?

2) Which menu bar is missing? Is it the Gnome panel (the one with the main app launching menus), the window borders (the bit with the close/maximise/minimise buttons) or the application menus (File/Edit/Help)?

3) What graphics card do you have? And have you installed the proprietary drivers?

4) How did you enable Compiz? And which settings are you using?

Finally, the reason I disagree with Zack's answer is a) it won't necessarily help with your problem, it'll just make sure that the Compiz Fusion icon is in your tray, but the icon isn't necessary and b) according to the openSUSE crew then Fusion Icon has effectively been abandonned and hasn't been updated in ages, which is why they no longer bundle it for openSUSE 11.3.
