This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

You can set the environment variable UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 before you log in. If you only want to deactivate it or enable it for a single application, then you can do things like UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 gcalctool. Use 1 instead of 0 to enable.
