Disable Global Menu AutoHide Behavior in Ubuntu 12.04 Precise

By Umair Saturday, July 07, 2012

The Unity Revamped PPA created by Isaac Joseph, which provides Unity with two patches: Dodge Windows and minimize/unmaximize on click for the Unity launcher, has been updated yesterday with some fixes which aren't yet available for the Unity package from the official Ubuntu 12.04 repositories as well as a new patch that brings a much requested feature: an option to disable the application menu (global menu) autohide behaviour.

The option that lets you disable menu autohide in Unity was supposed to be included by default in System Settings for Ubuntu 12.04, but it didn't make it for some reason. Hopefully, this option will make it into Ubuntu 12.10 by default, but until then, you can use the PPA below to get an option to disable the application menu autohide behaviour.

global menu

To do this, enter following commands in the Terminal:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ikarosdev/unity-revamped
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
after that logout and login back

Now install Compiz Config Manager, Enter following command to install:
sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager

global menu

Then open CompizConfig Settings Manager (CCSM), select "Ubuntu Unity Plugin" and on the "Experimental" tab, check the box next to "Menu Always Visible" (it's not checked by default).

To revert changes back, Enter following commands:
sudo apt-get install ppa-purge
sudo ppa-purge ppa:ikarosdev/unity-revamped
