Bug Description

Hi,

Ubuntu 18.04 with Unity.

Where the name of application is expected in global menu ( or locally integrated menu )

Unknown Application Name

shows instead.

It happened 2-3 first times I opened Nautilus.

It seems permanently « broken » with LibreOffice writer, draw and base but looks ok with calc, math or impress…

If launched from terminal writer has *sometimes* its correct name in global menu.

coeurnoir-1804@ASGARD:~$ libreoffice --writer
javaldx: Could not find a Java Runtime Environment!
Please ensure that a JVM and the package libreoffice-java-common
is installed.
If it is already installed then try removing ~/.libreoffice/3/user/config/javasettings_Linux_*.xml
Warning: failed to read path from javaldx
coeurnoir-1804@ASGARD:~$

I did the recommended installations ( JVM + libreoffice-java-common ) and removed ~/.libreoffice/4/user/config/javasettings_Linux_*.xml which did not change anything.

Completed LibreOffice installation with its metapackage, still…

If launched from the general « libreoffice » launcher ( libreoffice-startcenter ) then any subsequent windows has LibreOffice as its name ( but not LO-writer or LO-calc or… just LibreOffice ).

…ok. Sounds like an LO bug, that's it ?

It's a LO bug. LO is exporting both traditional titlebar and gnome-shell vertical appmenu (causing unknown application).

Gnome-shell appmenu should not be exported by unity-gtk3-module under Unity.
