I am running gnome classic on 11.10 and even though I have configured the gnome-terminal profile to hide the menu bar it shows it.

Even when I open the gnome-terminal --hide-menubar it shows the menu bar.

Any idea how to resolve that?

I even used gconf-editor to see if there is a problem with the profile but it has the parameter to show the menubar by default in false.

  • This doesn't solve your problem, but you could always use xterm if you don't like the menu. – bntser Oct 14 '11 at 20:22
  • thanks @bntser but I really like gnome-terminal, and if I were to use another terminal I'd use roxterm or eterm :) – feniix Oct 14 '11 at 22:54

    This is very annoying. I found a bug report for this issue here bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-terminal/+bug/875070 – Naveed Oct 16 '11 at 14:36

In my case it was related to Eliminate the top "mac-ish" file/edit/view/... menu after installing gnome?

When I moved my top bar away with Alt + Right click (for example to the right side of the screen) an extra menubar showed up on the top of the screen. It was probably hidden under the top bar I moved away.

After running sudo apt-get remove appmenu-gtk3 appmenu-gtk appmenu-qt and a reboot gnome-terminal --hide-menubar worked again :-)

  • Thanks, that's been hacking me off since I upgrade to gnome 3. – El Yobo Dec 1 '11 at 0:48
  • Just confirm it worked in cairo-dock session with gnome-panel loaded manually (from gnome-session-fallback) which doesn't have a menubar. – animaletdesequia Dec 15 '11 at 22:00
  • Excellent! Works on 11.10! – v2r Aug 11 '14 at 14:08
