I'm running Ubuntu 11.10 and just did a software update (not sure what got updated) and now my context menus are gone. When I right click on things I see nothing, but can still click around in the dark and make things in the now invisible menu happen (copy, paste, etc). The same is true for the calendar (when I click the clock) or application menus (file, edit, etc). Even extensions in Chrome are no longer dropping down.


  • Does this happen with other themes?. – Uri Herrera Dec 8 '11 at 16:05
  • not sure. they came back for the moment. it seems that if I close all open windows they'll start working and then after while they cut out again. I'll test a different theme next time they're not working. – daniel Dec 8 '11 at 16:13
  • This question should instead be filed as a bug report, thanks! Instructions here. – Jorge Castro Feb 24 '12 at 4:01
