I used

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends ubuntu-desktop

but dash home didn't show anything. I reinstalled, and the same result.

What should I install to get it to work?

I only got a small icon home at the bottom center.

Same here. Installed Ubuntu Server 12.10 in VMWare Player 5.0.1, then installed GUI with

sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends ubuntu-desktop

and now i can't open any apps, dash is empty, no panels, etc

I was able to resolve it by clicking the software center icon and installing unity-lens-applications and unity-lens-files. I also figured out CtrlAltT opens a terminal after installing those two packages through the software center. I issued the command unity --reset from the terminal.
