Testing Unity Session in 19.04

Hi @khurshid-alam and all Ubuntu Unity7 developers, I ran command line

sudo apt-get install unity-session

on Ubuntu Disco and it works very well. Unity desktop looks great, dash menu works very well, HUD also works, and like you said, transparent dash looks really unique now. I can confirm Unity7 performs quick (and I can feel it quicker than the built-in GNOME 3.32) on Disco Dingo at least on my hardware (Intel Pentium 4GB). It’s awesome, man. You all did good job. Thank you.

In 19.04, I’m getting menus duplicated in the upper bar of Libreoffice, no matter if I attach the menus to the application or to the upper panel. I’m getting this in two installations. I don’t know if this is specific to Unity, I looked around and could not see any report from other desktops, so it should be.Screenshot from 2019-05-15 18-11-05

Edit: I found some bug reports on this:


Are you getting the global menu but duplicated ? It doesn’t look like a xdg_current_desktop bug (like before) which was fixed in 1.6.2 and 1.6.2 works fine. Issue is happening with more recent versions.

Please file a bug on launchpad too ( if not already there) and may be ping @osomon

Yes, I’m getting global menu, but duplicated. If I ask to show the menus in the application they are also duplicated. As I said, this seems to be a common problem in the latest version of LO. Here is the main bug report with a link to the upstream bug:

Not sure that the “global” menu is accurate, really just the default LO menu view.
If you disable global menus then the menu is still duplicated in the window deco…

I’d be tempted to place the duped menu issue with LO going to gtk3. If you were to remove libreoffice-gtk3 & install libreoffice-gtk2 then you’d get the expected menu.

Yes, it is a known issue, it happens in different distributions and desktops. There is an open upstream bug that I mentioned above.

Happens as well on MySQL Workbench.

Any solution to this problem? We have the same issue.

The upstream bug is still opened and not a lot of action despite it affects different desktops:

MySQL workbench has the same problem.

Just for the record, the LO problem with the menus has been fixed and the global menu looks OK again in Unity.
