Re: [Vala] Why is my menubar not showing up?



Hello,

This is a cross post from the vala-list. I am working with vala and
gtk2 and have a sort of strange behaviour concerning Gtk.MenuBar.

As someone on the list suggested this might be a gtk issue and not a
vala issue, I thought it's a good idea to also ask here.

Please read the mailtrail, starting all the way down.

Thank you for any advise

Greetz,
Fred
