Wink Bash shell has lost its window Menu items


Hi Everyone

My first time in this Forum. Excuse me if I do not follow correct protocol.
I have tried searching internet for my answer but no wins.
I have Linux Cindy (debian build) and find that my bash file Menu items on window have disappeared. The menu items I mean are [ File |Edit |etc ]
Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Are you using desktop or using a console?
Are you connected to the machine with SSH or using it firsthand?

Hi Basher52
Thanks for quick reply. I am trying to use console. The console window does not have the menu items File Edit etc
Not a SSH connection. Single user on a console without menu.

Hi Basher52

I realise when you asked console name we both understood it differently.

So really, I should have said desktop bash window, called up with ctrl-alt-T

What happens if you right click inside the terminal window?

Is there a popup menu and if so does it have an item to check/click to show menubar?

Ctrl+Alt+t opens a Konsole window on my desktop. Therein, the toggle for the menu bar is Ctrl+Shift+M -- although I only know that because my menu bar is on (shows), and I could read the shortcut on the Settings Menu. I'm not sure how one would figure that out otherwise.

Could Ctrl+Alt+t have gotten mapped to "konsole --hide-menubar"?

I accidentally mapped Ctrl-D to "open tab" one time. Took me forever to figure out why all the tabs were opening. :^)

$ konsole --hide-menubar
The program 'konsole' is currently not installed. To run 'konsole' please ask your administrator to install the package 'konsole'
konsole: command not found

This is gnu bash shell debian would konsole work?

Konsole is part of the K desktop environment (KDE), but since you're running LMDE 3 Cindy (which defaults to Cinnamon desktop environment), the application you have is probably GNOME Terminal (labelled as just "Terminal").
