    Angry Gnome window bar vanished

    Nice one this.

    I got a message when I restarted that OITT-gnome whatever (didn't write down the name of it - didn't think it would matter) wasn't working - do you want to delete it. I clicked Yes.

    Now I have no buttons on the top of the windows, can't minimize, maximize or close the windows.

    Is there any way to fix this, or should I just trash it and start over with something else?

    Desktop is Gnome not KDE

    Hi
    Does it come back if you run;
    Code:
    /usr/bin/gtk-window-decorator --replace&
    exit
    Make sure you exit rather than just close the window

    Found this - works perfectly! Might help someone else.

    1. Open up a terminal and type su - (enter your password)
    2. Type gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    3. From the xorg.conf file, find the section called Section "Device" and just before EndSection, add the following and save the file:

    Option "AddARGBVisuals" "True"
    Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "True"
