    Exclamation Application Launcher disappeared

    All of a sudden I got an error from Gnome (don't know what it was) and the Application Launcher button (not sure how to call it - my desktop is in French - but I mean the bottom left button from where to launch applications) disappeared.
    Restarting the computer didn't make it back.

    How can I restore it ?

    Default Re: Application Launcher disappeared

    I can see that right-clicking on desktop allows me to Create a launcher. But I don't want to create a new one, just to get back the original one.

    Right-Click on the panel >> Add to the panel
    I can see:
    - Custom application launcher (Create a new launcher)
    - Application launcher (Copy a launcher from application menu)

    If I select the second, and click on Add, I'm offered a list of application groups to select... So it seems it's for creating a new application launcher again.

    Is there another way to get the original Launcher back ?

    Got it back ! - Phew (felt like naked without it, even with the great rescue help of Alt-F2)

    It was not an Application Launcher I had to restore, but to add "Main Menu" to the panel (bottom in the list).

    Right-click on Panel >> Add to the panel >> Main menu
