  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Question Beginner Window Title Bar Missing


New member
Sep 4, 2020

In certain applications, the window title bar is missing - see below for an example with Android Studio:

The exact problem happens in applications such as discord and all the Libre office suite, while it doesn't happen in others like Chrome, Pop!_Shop, etc.

I have tried reinstalling Pop OS, but it has not worked. I do not have any tweaks installed and the problem persists with different themes.

I am running 20.04, GNOME 3.36.3, X11 windowing system.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you have "Show Window Titles" toggled off in the Pop-Shell extension?

Good catch. No, I did not have it toggled off. Which is strange because if that were the problem, I would expect there to be no window titles anywhere, not just in certain applications.

I ended up doing a fresh OS install last night and the problem has seemed to go away. I did some investigation and I believe it may have to do with the shell theming (...?). With this fresh install, I won't install any shell themes to see what happens.
