What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

Same for me.

A workaround is to turn off the global menu specifically for the editor by running it like this:
env UBUNTU_MENUPROXY= DartEditor

Operating system: Ubuntu 13.10 64-bit

I've tried Harald Glatt's ppa for Dart (https://launchpad.net/~hachre/+archive/dart) which has Dart Editor version 0.7.5_r27776 and Dart SDK version 0.7.5.3_r27776. It works but the latest release of Dart yet. Thanks for sharing your working around. I'm going to stick with the older release of Dart till an official fix is issued. Best.

Today Harald Glatt updated his Dart ppa with the latest release of Dart and surprisingly enough running Dart from his ppa does not break the global menu. However, the Dart package downloaded from dartlang.org still has the global menu inoperative.

I just noticed that my Eclipse 4.3 now has the exact same problem. The global menu appears with the correct entries (File, Edit, ...) but they can not be opened.

I am not sure the links above are relevant as they show how to enable the global menu (i.e. move menu from window to global panel). For me the menu is already global, but it doesn't work.

My guess is that this regression is caused by an updated lib in Ubuntu 13.10 that is not compatible with gwt.

The reason why the DartEditor in my PPA works is because I have put the UBUNTU_MENUPROXY workaround into place for 13.10 in the package ;)

Note that this is a known Eclipse/Ubuntu issue:

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=419830

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libdbusmenu/+bug/618587

We will track those bugs to see if it gets fixed at some point. Until then, the workaround described above is the approach to use.


Added Waiting label.

Bumping up in priority until we get this better documented.

Dan: as per our conversation, let's update the troubleshooting docs and add a big warning to the (linux) download page. Once we've done that we can drop this back to 'Waiting'.

I've added this to the Dart Editor troubleshooting page (https://www.dartlang.org/tools/editor/troubleshoot.html) via github dart-lang (dart-archive/www.dartlang.org@8972733), but waiting for that change to become live on the site.

Another user suggestion:

I edited the .desktop file as suggested but this just disables the desktop item.
I fixed it by installing cinnamon (disabling unity).
