I upgrade from Lucid via update-manager -d and the upgrade went fine. However, I didn't get Unity's global menu. Windows stil have their indivual menu bars.

This happens for all applications.

Does this typically occur? Can this be fixed with a configuration setting?

@fossfreedom was on the right track. On my system, the package indicator-appmenu (and ubuntu-desktop) was missing. Installing this package + restart solved the issue.

  • ubuntu-desktop is just a metapackage which you don't need. Jul 20, 2013 at 12:22
