The menu bar is missing in Ubuntu 17.04 as described in ticket #1419. The command is started via '--start=' when starting xpra. Also the Ubuntu is freshly installed just for testing this.

It's possible that Ubuntu has changed the environment variables that control the menu. Or maybe we aren't setting the environment variables properly. Can you post the output of "env" running within an xpra session? Please also specify an application I can use for testing.

Try starting the session as a different user, one that does not have an existing GUI session.
Warning: running as root
Never run the client as root. Maybe this causes problems somehow.
Not heard back, closing.
