I installed codeblocks but the gui is not displaying well. There is no File, Edit, View, Search, Project etc but everything else is there. I am running 9.10.

Do you get any additional information when you run the GUI from the command line (debug output, warnings, etc)? – Marco Ceppi Aug 18 '10 at 17:56
No it loads well but is incomplete. – Vaolter Aug 18 '10 at 18:43
Is this still a problem? – Oli Dec 12 '11 at 15:49
Hi, I had the same problem, I solved by installing the last stable from here, sudo add-apt-repository ppa:damien-moore/codeblocks-stable, sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get install codeblocks – elect May 5 at 8:40

What version of CodeBlocks are you using ? The one in the Ubuntu repositories, or the latest release (CodeBlocks 10.05) ?

If you're using the 10.05, you need to install the corresponding wxWidget libraries (see the CodeBlocks site), because the wxWidgets in the Ubuntu repositories are not up to date for the latest CodeBlocks.

Sounds like your config file is messed up and the menu is being hidden.

Try removing ~/.codeblocks/default.conf
