I installed the macbuntu theme, for Ubuntu 10.10, and the menus from the VMware application disappeared. The other applications are correctly showing the menus. Any idea how to get back the VMware menus (other them completely uninstalling macbuntu)?

Do you have appmenu-gtk package installed? – Salem Nov 27 '11 at 16:56
@Salem yes, I do. Maybe I should re-install it? – Tom Brito Nov 28 '11 at 15:34
well, you can try it. But probably it's a problem of VMWare (i found something similar, regarding globalmenu – Salem Nov 28 '11 at 22:27
@Salem In my case it don't even appear in the global menu bar. – Tom Brito Nov 29 '11 at 14:58
@Salem and reinstalling appmenu-gtk didn't make any change. – Tom Brito Nov 29 '11 at 15:08

After reinstall appmenu-gtk, and appmenu-qt and make a reboot, the mouse and keyboard were no more reponsive. I re-installed Ubuntu, and still had some trouble with macbuntu after formating, but now the system is ok (without macbuntu).

Looks like macbuntu is not much stable.
