I have just installed Ubuntu GNOME Remix 12.10.1 and I when I first booted I ran the software manager and then went to the software updater to install updates. After the reboot, I can no longer find the software manager. I can see the updater when I search software but no manager. How can I get it back?

I don't think you can make this question here, because Ubuntu GNOME Remix, is not a "real Ubuntu", at the project site you can read the following message in the bottom: "This project is not affiliated with, authorized by, sponsored by, or otherwise approved by Canonical and/or the GNOME Foundation." – Zignd Nov 18 '12 at 13:03
The question may be valid, hard to say. It's still Ubuntu underneath it all. I think not allowing the custom "remix" may be a lot like not allowing s3 questions, or questions that belong to people that have apt-get remove ubuntu-desktop – coteyr Nov 18 '12 at 13:09
@coteyr note that the project is not approved by Canonical and/or the GNOME Foundation, it means that it might have bugs. – Zignd Nov 18 '12 at 13:13 Seems to imply that the Gnome Remix is "The Ubuntu GNOME Remix is a mostly pure GNOME desktop experience built from the Ubuntu repositories." – coteyr Nov 18 '12 at 13:15
Let just flag and the mods earn their Rep :) – coteyr Nov 18 '12 at 13:18

The problem is when you first time run the system update, the software manager uninstalls.

To fix this run

sudo apt-get install gnome-packagekit

You should be able to get a gnome compatable update manager running again by installing update-manager

sudo apt-get install update-manager
