Missing top menu bar Ubuntu 14.04
« on: August 09, 2017, 06:06:00 pm »
On Ubuntu 14.04 I started running out of space on a drive that I was downloading to. I stopped Qb and moved some goodies to free up space. I launched Qb 3.3.15 the same that I've been using for months. No menu bar? Just icons. So I completely un-installed Qb with "purge" option. I re-installed with "sudo apt install qbittorrent" Launched still no top menu bar. After hacking at it for a while and still no joy. I switched to root and launched from terminal..viola! The correct interface with top menu bar and all. But of course it all does not work right while running as root(launching downloads..etc)

Does anybody know how I can get my groove back? Why does it launch correctly as root and not as regular user? Strange all this happened just do to lack of storage..BUGGAH!

Help!!!

Maybe it's the user settings?
It can be found here: ~/.config/qBittorrent/

Rename the folder and check it.

Peter,
Thanks for replying. I stated I used the "purge" option but did not provide the complete syntax: "sudo apt-get purge --auto-remove qbittorrent" that will delete configuration and/or data files of qbittorrent and it's dependencies. So instead of renaming I had completely removed it...no joy. I did rename it as you suggested and watched Qb regenerate it..no joy.

Check out the pics I attached you can see how it looks launched as User and Root. Whats strange is I have made zero changes, Qb has been running/launching/receiving updates like a champ. I start to run out of storage and it borked...wtf?

Okay, another tip: Press ALT + V, and select Top Bar.
Or just press Alt once and you should find the option in there.

Let's see if this works...

Tried....no joy. I did learn I can close the app with alt-f4! After just randomly trying alt-whatever
what I'm not really getting is complete removing /purging...reinstall and its borked!!

I've really only found a handfull of things to try on the Net. Searching here..found nothing? Strange...
