Tools menu is missing from my canvas

hi Folks,

I was trying to follow the example on: … g-fitpanel

I simply copied and pasted:

TH1F *h1 = new TH1F(“h1”, “h1”, 200, -5,5);
TF1 *f1 = new TF1(“f1”, “[2]*TMath::Gaus(x,[0],[1])”);

this created a canvas almost identical to the one shown on the web page, BUT the main menu shows:

File Edit View Options Inspect Classes Help

instead of

File Edit View Options Tools Help

My guess is that I missed something during install, but what? I have not been able to find.

I run ubuntu 10.04 and I installed everything root related I saw on synaptic.




I’m not able to reproduce the problem. Could you tell us whitch version of ROOT you are using?

Cheers, Bertrand.

Hi there,

sorry, I mentioned ubuntu 10.04 and forgot to say:

  • Version 5.18/00b 10 March 2008 *

this is the one that is available with ubuntu 10.04. I suspect you will tell me to download the newest from the website. I will wait until you tell me to do it :slight_smile:



Hi Antonio,

Well, this is not a bug, but the interface (menu) has slightly changed between 5.18 and the current svn trunk, and a few new features have been added… Now, up to you to decide to use a newer version (but we encourage you to do it anyway)

Cheers, Bertrand.

In your case this has nothing to do with math and stats. Post it to “Root Support”
