My windows on my Xubuntu are not acting right. The minimize/maximize/close buttons are not there at the top right. I still have the "File Edit..." etc but I can't grab and move the window. Under the menu Settings -> Window Manager nothing happens which makes me think the Window Manager is dead or sick.
I reinstalled a scattershot of XFCE packages but the problem is still there. I didn't make any recent changes to anything close to these settings so....
What packages can I reinstall? or where can I look to see what controls my window behavior?
