I have an intermittent problem accessing the top panel/menu bar using the mouse in Ubuntu 11.04. sometimes I can access it with the mouse right click (as per normal), other times it is completely unresponsive whether using an external mouse of the mouse-pad. As I am new to Linux, I don't know if there is anyway to create a debug report or some other dump for the status of this menu. Its very irritating, especially when having to connect to a wifi network when on business but can't just right click and select the network. I ended up downloading WICF to manage my connections in a pop-up window but this is buggy too. I have the same set up on my desktop and the top menu/panel is accessible 100%, never fails. Any suggestions pls?
I suspect that the default indicator settings need to be reset.
Please look at my answer here and reset the indicator settings to their default settings.
