Ubuntu 13 Maximized Window Problem

Asked by tecknomage on 2013-04-27

REF: Ubuntu 13.04 running GNOME Fallback (aka GNOME Classic) enviroment

After upgrade foung Ubuntu 13 has a problem with maximized windows in the GNOME enviroment.

Again, with ANY window *already* maximized, the [Close][Minimized][Maximize/Unmaximize] buttons at window corners do NOT work.

In GNOME Fallback I can use right-click the Task-Bar and use the functions in the context menu.

By the way, reporting a bug is still MUCH TO COMPLEX. Selecting [Report a Bug] should take users DIRECTLY to the applicable form, NOT a overly long document.

Have you tried to re-install gnome-panel ?

    sudo apt-get install --reinstall gnome-panel

Sorry but I don't understand this. What you mean "after sudo" ?

Your "sudo" suggestion of 2013-04-27.

This affects me as well. If an application starts maximized then the title bar of the application is completely unresponsive. None of the buttons in the window corners work, and double clicking on the title bar to unmaximize the application also does nothing. Furthermore, if an application is open and the title bar of that applicaiton is behind that of the maximized window, then the buttons for that window "will" respond. This bug used to happen with the gtk-window-decorator, but had been fixed. It seems to have resurfaced. I have no clue what the old bug number was.

I believe this bug is a duplicate of bug #1158267.

Can you help with this problem?
