I'm using xpra 1.0.1 (also saw this on 1.0) on a Ubuntu 14.04.5 system. Most of the time I'm running it in loopback mode.
xpra start :10
xpra attach ssh:localhost:10
When I do this, however, I don't see the menu bars for my applications (gnome-terminal, gvim and eclipse being my most commonly used). All the menu bar at the top of the screen says is "attachXpra"
If I attach from my MacBook?, then I see menu bars. (The menu bars are in each window instead of at the top of the screen, and there's a generic Xpra menu at the top of the screen. That's fine by me.)
So it looks like the xpra server is aware of the menu bars, but the Ubuntu client isn't showing them.
In email (see the "No menu bar in Ubuntu" thread), Antoine pointed out that it could be a problem with how I'm starting the apps. I'm using
If I change to using:
xpra control :10 start gnome-terminal
then I see the menu bar on Ubuntu.
So it looks like there's something missing in the DISPLAY=:10 approach and Antoine asked for a ticket for further investigation.
Output of bug report tool.
ALWAYS start commands using one of the
--start= variants to ensure that the application's environment is correct.
I have added this to the FAQ: wiki/FAQ.
