Menubar of KStars in Ubuntu 18.04 / Bionic #51147
I'm feeling quite silly to ask, but how can I get back the menubar of KStars 3.4.2?

I didn't find any hint so I hope you guys can point me the direction.

Perhaps Google yourself for "ubuntu 18.04 kde application menu bar" and you'll find, among other hits, this one

Thanks for your hint, but I'm not using KUbuntu. I installed the default Ubuntu 18.04 with Gnome. According the latest news, the developer decided to remove the old style application menu bar and replace it with the "pulldown" menu you can see in my screenshot at the right side of the [Applications] button*. As far as I know, the application menu should appear there! There are indeed several application working this way.

There is an deprecated gnome extension, that brings back the "old-style" menu, but the devs advised against installing this!

So what to do now?

Ahh sorry, I wasn’t aware that this was decided in Gnome. I think most of us use the MATE desktop (Gnome 2 rebranded) which doesn’t have this behaviour.

I didn't think much about the desktop manager, I simply updated my Ubuntu 16.04 an I've got Bionic Beaver with Gnome3.

Perhaps I should move to "Mate"?
What are the differences between "Mate" and Gnome3?
Or will KStars be updated to support the "new" application menu of Gnome3?

Whether you should switch to MATE or not is entirely up to you. MATE is much less resource heavy and has the familiar menu structure that Gnome used to have in version 2.

I cannot comment on your other question as I am not a KStars developer.
