Running Okular under Ubuntu 11.04 (w/ Unity): Okular doesn't have menus anymore (file, settings etc.) unless I maximise its window.

"Okular doesn't have menus anymore (file, settings etc.) unless I maximise its window."

Yes it does. The menu is in the bar at the top of your screen just hidden until you put the mouse on it. (Silly I know, but that's the way the cookie crumbles).

Yes, you're correct that it works that way when it's maximised, but when it's not maximised I have no menus. – emacsomancer May 11 '11 at 3:06
@BeSlayed: Are you trying what I suggested? When the window is not maximized the menu is still at the top of the screen. – RolandiXor May 11 '11 at 15:51
Ah, I see. That's very odd behaviour. Most of the applications don't seem to work like that. – emacsomancer May 11 '11 at 19:31
@BeSlayed: unity works like that. btw you can mark the question solved by clicking the arrow on my answer. – RolandiXor May 11 '11 at 23:12
