Since upgrading to 11.10, I have had issues with Unity. It seems as though every other time I reboot, the applications lens disappears. Sometimes it's there, other times it is not.
When it is not there, I obviously can't browse or launch applications.
I have tried re-installing unity, unity-lens-applications, and unity-place-applications using
apt-get install --reinstall, but no luck.
This is super frustrating.
I'd appreciate any help.
