Appmenu in 14.04 doesn't seem to be working for GTK2 apps like Pidgin or Meld 1.3, whereas it worked fine in 13.10.

Is there a way to fix this?

  • Perhaps you're missing the GTK package for the menus? try this sudo apt-get install unity-gtk2-module Apr 30 '14 at 2:47

You may be missing the package unity-gtk2-module

sudo apt-get install unity-gtk2-module

Or it may be installed wrong

sudo apt-get install --reinstall unity-gtk2-module

Also make sure you restart or logout in order to make sure everything works right you may not have to do this, you may simply need to restart the program.

    That is actually a screenshot of Meld 3 which uses GTK3, but thanks, your advice worked! Apr 30 '14 at 3:18
