[chirp_users] SOLVED: Problems under Ubuntu 11.10?

This is my last thread butchery for the day, promise!

I found out what the "problem" is, if there really is one.  Its more 
like user error, certainly not a problem with Chirp its self.

The "problem" is the Unity interface under Ubuntu.  The menu bar is 
taken away from the app window, and stuck up at the top of the screen 
but kept invisible until mouseover.  When Chirp starts up, it is not 
full screen and has nothing to display.  However, if the user moves the 
mouse to the top of the screen, the menu bar appears and the app is 
quite useable.  The most intuitive way around this is simply to maximise 
Chirp - the top of its window then sits below the menu bar and 
everything feels reasonably good!  Chirp seems to be programming my 
UV-3R very nicely indeed - I'm over the moon that I can have the same 
memories in my 3R and my VX-6 with ease!

Unity is pretty, but it does have its usability problems from time to 
time, hi!

Thanks and 73,

Dave M0MYA.
