I'm using Ubuntu 13.04. Suddenly Files manager is missing Window Frame/Global Menu. I have checked other Application such as Gedit, Firefox aren't having this problem. I've tried resetting unity by using these commands:

dconf reset -f /org/compiz
unity --reset-icons

But the problem still persists.

Check if you have installed any package recently before the global menu went missing. Sometimes, installing ubuntu-restricted-package causes the issue, so you may try to remove it and install it again.


Remove nautilus from compiz config's window decorator plugin exceptions.
