I installed lotus notes 8.5.2 on 10.10 netbook using unity desktop. At first lotus notes showed its menu. Suddenly (not sure if I did something) the menu disappeared. When I start up using gnome desktop, the menu still is there. Unity shows only the file menu for notes with the only entry for closing notes.
This is a reported bug in how SWT applications (like Eclipse and Lotus Notes) handle the appmenu.
As a workaround, create this script:
#!/bin/bash export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 _path_to_downloaded_eclipse_/eclipse
If you installed eclipse with Software Centre, then use
which eclipse to determine the path.
Make that file executable and try running it. You can use "Main Menu" (search in the Dash) to create a launcher for it so it shows up in the Dash.
That should move the menus from the Unity top bar to the eclipse window. Once the bug is fixed, you will be able to run eclipse normally.
Another question has a much more thorough description of disabling appmenu for any application.
This is a bug and has been reported. You may follow it here: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=330563
I found this on launchpad. Could you try it, and tell us? (Write the commands exactly like this, because you can search and replace on vim by writing commands)
sudo apt-get install vim sudo vim /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/menuproxies/libappmenu.so
The vim will appear. Write this:
Then, replace the E of Eclipse with an X by writing this:
Finally, just save by writing this:
ZZ. In caps, so you should do SHIFT+Z SHIFT+Z!
The next step is maybe optional, I don't know:
