I cant figure this out for the life of me, but it seems impossible to save an image using any browser.

I am very very new to linux, but I will try to provide any sort of helpful information I can.

This is what I see when I try an save an image to any file folder: enter image description here

There is no save button, as far as I can tell, and the only thing I can do is hit escape to get out of the save feature.

Any help would be great!

  • What happens when you right click the image and choose the option "save image as"

Try changing your theme to default and restart. This happened to me when messing around with a theme. (Btw: which theme is that?)

Try this command:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides "{'Gtk/DialogsUseHeader': <0>, 'Gtk/ShellShowsAppMenu': <0>, 'Gtk/DecorationLayout': <'close:menu,maximize'>}"

(from this question: Buttons are missing in the file chooser dialog. What should I do?)

  • Tried that and still nothing :( Also it is the theme is github.com/eti0/arc-grey-theme Commented Sep 11, 2017 at 20:26
  • Is everything up-to.date? Have you restarted? I updated, my answer, try that command.
