This question already has an answer here:
I have installed Ask Ubuntu Lens on my 12.04 desktop some time back and I could see it in my installed applications from Ubuntu Software Center. But I cannot find it on the dash. How I can launch it ? I installed Alacarte hoping that I can see it there, but could not find it there either.
Note: I reviewed the question on installing lens here, but could not find answer to my specific question.
