Ubuntu 11.10 - Status Bar Missing?


I am gradually getting to grips with Ubuntu 11.10.
One small problem!
All the programs I use open OK and work as I would expect. However, when I open GNU Cash, the Status Bar (the bar along the top of the screen - the one that brings up the drop-down menus - when the mouse hovers over it) appears, but is blank, i.e. it should show the Program Name etc. So, I can't access the drop-down menus?
The program works fine and all other programs open with the Status Bar in place?

Do you mean the menu bar? Can you access the menus using the Alt- key?

Occasionally I have a similar issue except the title bars in all of the open windows dissappear...
I just use compiz config to turn off window decoration and then turn it back on.

Hope this fixes your problem!

This problem only occurs with GNUCash. I didn't matter what I tried - Keyboard shortcuts (Alt F10). So, I have used another simple financial package (HomeBanK) - which works fine?

Thanks for your help!
