Menus disappear often from all apps in 14.04LTS

Asked by Jorge on 2014-07-17

I've been using 14.04 lts for many weeks but often, at any time the menus disappear from all apps running (browser, etc) and the desktop. Usually the apps continue to work but there is no way to do much anything. At the desktop I can only left click and create a new folder. I'm left with no option but to do a hard shut down.

Can you not press CTRL + ALT + T and bring up a terminal to logoff or reboot gracefully?
Hard reboots can and will physically damage your hardware.
Have you tried a non compoziting session like XFCE (sudo apt-get install xfce4) or LXDE (sudo apt-get install lxde)

You may find they are more stable

Can you help with this problem?
