A few weeks ago I upgraded ubuntu to Gutsy Gibbon – I was very impressed, the enhanced graphics which were not available to me in feisty now worked.

However somehow last week I lost my title bar, so no window title, no minimise or maximise button and the close button was gone. In addition the terminal window was now broken loading up a blank page.

After trawling through various forums and trying half a dozen fixes, with no success I finally tried turning off the special effects, and now have them back.

It’s a bit frustrating, I can only assume that one of the regular updates broke the driver that was working for me previously as no settings had been changed. Ah well – anyone with this problem, it’s really not worth the hassle just to have windows that wobble when moved and desktops that slide when changed 🙂
