If I rememmebr right:
there exists a setting or an application (for gnome) that should hide menubars from apps and make them accessible through an applet.

I tried it out a while ago, but it did not work with wxWidgets menu from C::B.

I do not remember the exact name and place where it was, but it might cause your problems.

Thanks for replying.
I think, i never installed such kind of app.
Could compiz be a problem, though this problem is only specific to codeblocks.
I even tried reinstalling it.

i tried searching for "ubuntu menu bar" but results are of no use as almost all of them talking about missing top gnome panel.
my panels are alright. its just that menu bar is missing in codeblocks (bar with option like File Edit View etc.)

Do you have installed something that tries to mimic the OSX style menus?
Also turn of compiz or any other compositing software.
Also try to remove ~/.* (probably try with different user).

No i haven't installed any OSX style menu.
All theme related apps i have are - emarald manager, compiz-fusion, docky

tuning off compiz didn't help
won't "remove ~/*" delete all file/ folders in home folder. I think it contains user setting for various apps and my files also.
BTW once i also tried removing .codeblocks folder from home folder incase user setting for codeblocks were corrupted but even that didn't help.
Some where online i found that this [export UBUNTU_MENUPROXY=0] might help in temporarily unhiding the menu bar in affected application.
But even that didn't help.

Could this be due to some faulty plugin?

Read carefully. I've said remove ~/.* not ~/* or use another clean user...

btw: Docky sounds pretty apple-ish...  :P

I have found a very weird solution to this problem but it works.

If i disable any plugin from manage plugins menu, menu bar appears. But will have to repeat steps every time codeblocks is opened.
