Question Dissapearing titlebars?!?!


I'm assuming this is a software prob anyways....

I'm running Fedora 6 on an Asus laptop (2x1.6GHz, 1024MB, 100Gb, NVidia 7300Go 512MB) and it's all been going great... up until this morning when I lost all my titlebars. This means I can't minimise, maximise etc and when something's set up to run fullscreen (Firefox) I can't reach the taskbar.

Any ideas on how to get them back?

Many thanks, Matt

Using Gnome. I've tried logging in as a different user on Gnome, and they have titlebars, and I've tried using KDE, and that has titlebars too...but I prefer using Gnome.

Ahah! Fixed... touch wood


I removed and then reinstalled gdm and xorg-x11-twm (Both window managers) Thinking about it now, I probably only needed to do gmd, 'cos KDE was already working. Meh, all's well that ends well!

Probably all that would be needed is the removal or rename of .gnome or .gnome2 in your home directory.

...like now

If anyone else is looking for a solution to this, the way I fixed it (ie, worked for me, may not for you) is the following:

1) Disable the Desktop Effects (System, Preferences, Desktop Effects)
2) Choose a new theme (and then go back to your favourite if you want)
3) Logout / Login
4) Enable Desktop Effects

Should be sorted then.

Matt
