window border missing and every window gets maximized no matter how small its supposed to be

Asked by pritam ghanghas on 2009-05-24


I had installed netbook-remix* using apt-get install on my desktop. It didnt work out very well with my existing gnome setup so I removed it. But now I dont get border around any of the gnome applications. Moreover every window gets maximized no matter how small it is supposed to be. Even the small dialogs comes maximized. Now I think it would have been a good idea to take backup of gconf before installing remix. I tried to look at keys in the remix package but with no success they all seem to be reverted to normal values unless I missed something.

Please help me out its really irritating

Cheers !!!

I am coverting this bug to a question because it not really a bug. My bad. I just now saw that I have a application named "maximus" in startup applications and its the cause of all the problems that I was facing. Probably this got installed when I installed ubuntu-netbook* as a dependency and was not removed when I removed ubuntu-netbook*. Sorry for few extra mails going to a lot of people. I should pay more attention when using apt-get rather than blindly saying "yes".

Cheers !!!!


as per the above msg problem has been solved by removing the culprit package "maximus"
