This has happened a couple of times now, the unity menu (when you click on the Ubuntu logo) has all the categories there but when you click on say media apps it will be blank the same for the other options as well. searching for something will also draw a blank =/

any help?

Using Ubuntu 11.04 Beta 2 32bit

I had the same experience but I had upgraded from kubuntu to Unity. Was it a clean installation? – topless Apr 17 '11 at 9:32
Yep completely clean install of Beta 1 with all the updates – Carl Apr 17 '11 at 19:54

This seems like a bug. As this is not normal behavior. Please report bugs in launchpad. You can report bugs specifically on unity here.
