It's a rather simple problem, but I can't find the solution:

The menu bar in Kate (File, Edit, ...) has disappeared, and I tried looking up in the katerc file. How can I restore it?


Had the same problem... and CTRL+M also solved it for me. I never actively hide my menus, so arriving at this solution was not intuitive. No idea what (bug?) caused the sudden disappearance of the menu.


I solved the problem by:

  • looking for katerc with find * | grep katerc, and deleted it
  • sudo apt purge kate
  • sudo apt install kate
