Ubuntu’s Unity interface greatly resembles that of MacOSX, and that includes T__he Global menu, AKA The Mac Menu, _which shows the _Application menu(File, View, Edit, e.t.c.)  in the top bar. 

Macbuntu, an Ubuntu to MacOSX Transformation pack, _which i was so tempted to try, didnt work too well for me, and thus I uninstalled it. Yet, it left the scars; in this case, by permanently messing up the _global menu. 

This is how i fixed it. (terminal):

sudo apt-get install appmenu-gtk appmenu-gtk3 appmenu-qt indicator-appmenu
