    Default gimp menu bar disappeared

    Hi,

    for some reason, the gimp menu bar disappeared (is not the toolbox, is the horizontal menu in the top of the window).


    I have tried uninstall and install again, but didn't work

    suggestions?

    many thanks

    Is the menubar enabled? See: https://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-view-show-menubar.html

    See if it's a problem with the gimp settings, temporarily rename ~/.gimp-2.8 (assuming V2.8, otherwise substitute your version number).

    Try with a new user profile.

    So neither reverting to default gimp settings (by temporarily renaming ~/.gimp-2.8) or creating a new user profile, solves the problem.

    Is that the only application to have "lost" it's menubar? I'm at a loss as to suggest what else to try. Perhaps Google or another forum user will come to your rescue.

    Yesterday I unchecked the menubar boxes as indicated by tannington just to see if that was the problem. Opened an image, menubar still there.

    Today I restarted Gimp (it's usually always loaded, I've disabled the "Close" button in advanced window props) and the menubar was there, as usual.

    But, when opening an image, the menubar is gone. If I close the image but not gimp the menubar reappear over the empty image area. If opening an image from the context menu (regardless of gimp being loaded or not) the image opens without menubar.

    So I went to preferences and ticked the menubar checkboxes again, *and* restarted gimp. Now it's working as before.

    Note that this is still using oS 13.2, KDE 4.14 and Gimp 2.8.16 from repo. Gimp is set to use the fixed layout, not floating windows.

    I installed GIMP 2.9 version but the problem remained there.
