I unfortunately disabled The Unity plugin from CompizConfig, now the launcher is vanished.

I cannot re-enable the Unity plugin now, because no way for me to load CompizConfig again without the launcher.

Please suggest any way to overcome this problem.

I am using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Right click & add a folder, click on the folder to open the File Manager, go to /usr/share/applications, from there you can start CompizConfig & enable the Unity plugin.

Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command below to run CCSM.

Once it comes up you can re-enable unity plugin
