The EnableMenuItems event is not firing for our app in Ubuntu 11.04 (it does work on Windows and Mac versions). Any ideas?
Also the cursor can not seem to decide what it wants to be.
Should we be recommending our app for Ubuntu 11?
Thanks.

As you know Ubuntu 11 uses a new default menu proxy system (i.e. a global menubar per app). This causes some issues with RB apps since clicking on the Menubar now deactivates the app (which is something we've never anticipated). Our next release should handle this just fine, but as a workaround you can probably enable the menu items in the Window.Deactivate event. If you're the only one using your app you can also just disable this menu proxy feature by defining UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0 at the terminal and running your app, i.e.

> export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0
> ./MyApplication
