on ubuntu 14.04, as per standard distribution repositories. Opening any document, all of the basic text formatting menus are missing... cannot add bullets or bold, set font, etc... there is just blank space where the menus should be. example:

Any idea how to reset whatever option this is to defaults? or bring the normal menus back?

Is it possible that the menus are on the dark top bar above the window? It would show only when you place your mouse over there.

mouse over makes no difference, there are no menus there.

Maybe with F10 you can get access to it.
