Questions reporting bugs are considered off-topic for our site (see the FAQ). This should be reported as a bug. You can make Apport collect and submit the necessary technical information--but still make sure to read the bug reporting documentation first, and describe the problem thoroughly in the bug report you write in the web browser (which will come up automatically after Apport sends the data). –  Eliah Kagan Apr 10 '13 at 3:13
    
If you're no longer experiencing this, don't bother filing a bug. But if you can still produce this crash, filing a bug will help the project. If devav2's answer does/did help, it would still be good for your to file a bug report. Either way, please indicate in the bug report whether or not appmenu-gtk was installed and, if not, what changes, if any, occurred once you installed it. (In particular, whether or not installing it stopped the crash.) –  Eliah Kagan Apr 10 '13 at 3:16

Problem is with appmenu-gtk.

Try installing the package, Open a terminal and type:

sudo apt-get install appmenu-gtk

Hope this helps.
