Unhappy gedit has no menubar


Hi: this my first post.
In gedit (3.18.3) I see the tool/title bar but no menu bar. I tried
Ctrl+m as suggested in another thread but it makes no difference. I'm
using KDE on Fedora 23. Apper says my system is up to date.

I haven't used any GNOME app under KDE, but, I can tell you long ago the GNOME team decided that menubars were outdated.

They integrated everything into a title/tool bar. What makes this worse is that there's no consistency. Applications like gedit follow this new "design" while GNOME-terminal does not. Go figure.

In the title/tool bar at the top of the window there is an "Open", "New Tab" buttons to the left and "Save" button to the right? To the right of the "Save" button will be your Android-esque menu button (three horizontal bars).

Does the menubar still exist?

Some of the gedit documentation mentions a menu bar, but I still can't find it. GNOME also
decided that good documentation is outdated. My toolbar doesn't even have `new tab' button.
The `menu' button gives some options but not all that are in traditional menu bars. For
example, there is no setting to control hide/show tool bars.

Yep, that is the only menu available. No traditional menu. No ability to show/hide tool bars (hint: besides the top bar, there are none).

Wink Solved

I guess I have to mark this solved. The solution is to _not_ use gedit. Too bad, it (in) previous versions) was my favorite editor. It appears GN0ME doesn't want me as a user.

Sorry. I tried this and doesn't work. I'm using KDE and this suggestion probably only works on unity.
