Problems with buttons

11.04 of Ubuntu Studio is based on Ubuntu, which was Gnome based.
11.10 of Ubuntu Studio is based on Xubuntu, which is based on XFCE.

I don't know for certain this is the reason, (because I did not try to
upgrade from 11.04 to 11.10), but I wonder if there are either further
updates you need to do to be fully switched or if the different
desktop-base is the cause?

Wonder if running the following from the command line will help?  (Or did
you already try it?)

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get upgrade
