I just installed Youtube web app in Ubuntu using this command,

sudo apt-get install unity-webapps-youtube

but I cannot make it working or I do not find any Youtube icon on the dash.

Have you installed the webapps feature and added it'd PPA before that?

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webapps/preview sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install unity-webapps-preview

Try that and then logout and back in to see if it works!

Problem may be a re login! – Danial Jose Jan 10 '13 at 17:04
How do you mean? As in re-login is causing the problem or you can't re-login? – Merri Jan 10 '13 at 17:07
After installing Youtube web app I did not re login, may be that is the cause, but all other web apps like Gmail, are working, why? – Danial Jose Jan 10 '13 at 17:16
So have you re-logged at all since you've installed the Youtube lens? Also did you install Gmail, LastFM and other lenses at the same time as the youtube one or at an earlier date? – Merri Jan 10 '13 at 17:19
I was just re login and still only youtube web app is not working! – Danial Jose Jan 10 '13 at 17:24
