Thread: Missing VLC menu bar

  1. #1

    Default Missing VLC menu bar

    I have a new 42.3 installation with packman. Most of vlc works however the menu bar
    has disappeared from the top of the vlc window. The right-click menu still appears.

    If I run vlc from the same user as the desktop is logged into then there is no menu bar.

    If I run vlc from a different user then the menu bar appears.

    In both cases I have deleted the ~/.config/vlc files and started from scratch.

    Is there something in the desktop configuration that tells vlc to not draw a menu bar?

    Yes, probably related to the global application menu...

    systemsettings5->Application Appearance->Widget Style->Fine Tuning->Show menu in...
    (or similar, it has been removed in Plasma 5.12 which I am using)
