I use Unity on Ubuntu 14.04. In Dash, applications are not present.

Folders&files and plugins are there though.

I tried :

unity --reset
sudo apt-get purge unity-lens-applications unity-lens-files
sudo apt-get install unity-lens-applications unity-lens-files

and didn't worked.

How can I get the Dash working again?


It worked with unity --replace.
