I upgraded from 14.04 LTS to 16.04 LTS and somehow the application menu in any window, was not showing anymore.

I tried changing the settings in the appearance config but with no luck (location menu bar vs window title bar and always visibe).

There is a similar issue here but it involved a fresh install and none of the answers worked for me.

How can I get my application menu back?


After some digging around I found this thread describing the same issue (but for 14.04).

The solution is simply:

sudo apt-get install indicator-appmenu

Don't ask me why it was missing..
