Possible Duplicate:
Unity Lenses Missing (files/folders, applications)

I know how to add icons for applications to the launcher; but the icon lost is for "More Apps". I don't know what is the application responsible for "More Apps". Could someone provide help?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Make sure you have the package unity-place-applications installed and that the file /usr/share/unity/places/ exists.

@htorque: Thanks for your reply. I can confirm that the package unity-place-applications existed before the "More Apps" icon disappeared. However, it happened that the icon returned after a reboot of the system. Further observations reveals that the "More Apps" icon disappeared every time after I made changes to compiz effects; but on reboot the icon returned.
