Default System menu bug

Hello,


I think I might have found a bug in Ubuntu 11.04 with and without Unity. Whenever I try to bring up any window's system menu (with alt+space or by clicking on the app's window icon), the window manager (please correct me if I'm wrong) crashes. All titlebars from all applications dissapear, and windows become unmovable.



Does anyone know if there is a workaround for this?


Thank you!

I can't replicate on my system (Unity or Ubuntu Classic). I wonder if
it's a Compiz issue... I have the 'Ubuntu Unity Plugin' disabled in
compiz so that I can properly rotate my windows etc.

Thank you, NoOp for replying.


Thing is that if I rightclick the titlebar of any window, the system menu does appear and the wm doesn't crash.


Anyway -- and excuse me for being offtopic here, but I installed Natty because Ubuntu 10.04 had no drivers for my chipset, I was unable to use my network card. Had no time (I usually do this OS installing business at night) and to be honest do not know how to install these drivers. I am sure that if I could install the kernel version that 11.04 is using, I could run 10.04 without problems.


Mobo name is Asus p8p67.


Anyone could point me to some steps on getting this kernel on 10.04? Is compiling the only option?


Regards,

If you're using a proprietary video driver it might wreck automatic
updating of it. That would become a concern. What kernel is installed on
11.04? Just type uname -r in a terminal window.

I'm in your corner, 10.4 is a nice safe place to be right now, IMHO. I
installed 10.10 on our office machine and it seems nice and safe as
well. But, at home, I'm a coward and prefer the LTS release, installing
it several months after release to be sure it's shaken out well. Fedora
cured me from stepping any where near the "cutting edge". Ric
