I recently upgraded my Google Cr-48 to Ubuntu 11.10 from Ubuntu 11.04. It appears as if there is something behind the title bar. Is this normal?

I also need to ask how I can take a screenshot to show this. I don't have a Print Screen key.

Try typing 'screenshot' in the dash for a screenshot-taking tool. – Mandy Oct 16 '11 at 2:08
@MisterCrazy8 Can you also provide more details as to what exactly you're seeing behind the title bar, especially if you don't have a screenshot? – Christopher Kyle Horton Oct 16 '11 at 2:50
This should be split up into two questions – Jorge Castro Oct 16 '11 at 14:40
Hey @MisterCrazy8 - can I ask how you upgraded your CR48 to 11.10? I tried, but don't have enough space to download the files... – BrianH Oct 18 '11 at 20:50

For a screen shot type "Screenshot" into the search bar. (Its the one with a camera ;) )

It's possible you are seeing some of Gnome panel (but without seeing I cannot say for sure.) This is because gnome panel runs underneath unity panel! So if you set the opacity of unity to 0, you'd be able to see gnome. Weird eh!

I think this is the answer to the questions it does look like the icons that the Gnome Panel displayed. – MisterCrazy8 Oct 16 '11 at 23:51
I feel confident that this is the answer. – MisterCrazy8 Oct 17 '11 at 0:00

you can reassign the screenshot shortcut in system settings under keyboard->shortcuts-> screenshot

It might be the Nautilus menu bar. When running in Classic mode with Nautilus on the desktop a Nautilus menu bar would be hidden behind the top panel, moving the panel out of the way would reveal it. So while it might be 'normal' it's certainly a bug.

@BrianH If you use the SD card slot as a extra disk you will have extra space.

For example, chromedisk is a 16 Gig SD card
