    Exclamation GUI Looses Its "X (Close)" "[] (Maximize)" and "- (Minimize)" Buttons.

    Okay Ive been using knoppix for about three years now and have been fighting with this problem all the way through. When ever i run knoppix off a USB stick or install it to a HDD after a while the Default GUI (i belive it is a modified KDE desktop called Knoppix GUI) looses its three buttons at the top right corner of every window (the "close", "maxamize" and "minimize" buttons). Also i cannot move windows around either. This has been very very annoying and if anyone could shed some light on the subject it would be greatly apprechiated.

    Hi and Welcome !

    Have you tried pressing Alt+Spacebar. Check if window Menu appear.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but I think that Knoppix uses metacity or Compiz. If you happen to have a terminal up and running when this occurs, try:
    metacity --replace

    compiz --replace

    Hopefully this helps.
