Missing Main Menu Bar in Eclipse based Applications

Some Ecipse based applications like XMind (Mind Mapping and Brainstorming program) show the menu neither in the main program window nor in the new global main menu panel introduced in Ubuntu 11.04. The workaround for now is to set the APPMENU_DISPLAY_BOTH to 1 like this:-
APPMENU_DISPLAY_BOTH=1 /usr/local/xmind/xmind
This allows the menu to display within the application like it did in the earlier version of Ubuntu.

  1. Thanks for the tip. Updated eclipse and poof the menu was gone. Added the line to my .bashrc file and everything is perfect.
