I just install ReText using sudo apt-get install retexton my ubuntu 14.04 LTS. It doesn't have a menu bar. And i didn't find configuration file either.

Can anyone help me?


Enter the following command in a Terminal to get the name of your icon theme -

gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface icon-theme

and take note of it.

Now, edit the ReText.conf file -

nano ~/.config/ReText\ project/ReText.conf

Add the following line to the file -

> [General] > iconTheme=<input your Icon Theme name here>

Press Ctrl+X followed by Y and Enter to save.

Close and reopen ReText. The toolbar should now be visible.
