After upgrading to 12.04 I discovered I had the OSE version of VirtualBox, rather than the Oracle version previously installed. I had to reinstall virtualbox it to get it working. Then, I re-enabled the Oracle repo and intalled virtualbox-1.4. However, while the OSE version came up in the dash, the Oracle version doesn't. It did when running under 11.10. Is this a bug? How can I make it appear in the dash?


Reinstalling virtualbox-4.1 resolved the issue. VirtualBox now appears in the dash and runs as expected.
