My brother did something and now the music lens doesn't work. Now there's no filter and no search results. Yesterday, everything worked.

How do I reinstall this lens?

Open a terminal and execute the following command.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall unity-lens-music

This should reinstall the music lens.
