Thanks for reporting the problem Patrick.

I suppose you are using Ubuntu 10.10 Natty in which case the issue is very well known and will be fixed shortly.

All the pieces are now in place for the fix to be working. We are only missing a new release of libdee. And also until a new version of unity-2d is in Natty you probably want to use the daily ppa:

https://launchpad.net/~unity-2d-team/+archive/unity-2d-daily

added the daily ppa and updated and still does not work see attached screen shot for proof

this bug is marked "fixed" but not on my OS im quite sorry

same here, fully updated unity-2d ppa with natty but no icons in applications place, also after doing a search.

Thanks a lot zniavre and Lucazade for reporting this very important issue.
Can you please open a separate bug report to ease the tracking of what I believe is a technically different issue from the one in this bug report?

It doesn't happen always, just sometimes. When this happens, the icons for other lenses disappear as well. I'll attach some screenshots to show you what I mean
