    Sorry to post a "me too" but I see exactly the same.

    Going to the terminal and typing unity --update-icons may work for some, but it locks up here. There are a lot of things installed on our machines, but hardly any of it is accessible!

    I got this result after installing the Unity/Gnome desktop option in Kubuntu to try it out. KDE works basically fine. Unity keeps it's secrets for now...

    Try to reset the icons

    Code:
    unity --reset-icons
    and if not to reset Unity

    Code:
    unity --reset
    If the problem continues try to reset Compiz

    Code:
    gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1
    unity --reset

    unity --reset-icons
    >
    glib.glib-gobject <unknown>:0 invalid cast from BamfWindow to BamfApplication

    WARN unity.dash.filesystems.cpp:199 Unable to enumerate child processes in directory usr/share/unity/lenses

    Then lock-up

    Restart...

    unity --reset
    >
    Same result, except exiting terminal is possible.

    gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/compiz-1
    unity --reset
    >
    Same result.

    Possibly a file missing in usr/share/unity/lenses ?
    I'll have a search for "BamfApplication" now.

    Thanks for help,
    Rob.

    Go to synaptic (if you don't have it install it through Ubuntu Software Center) and search for the packages Unity-lens. There are 3 of them (applications-files-music) and with right click choose to reinstall them.

    Thanks BBoa,

    The 3 "lens" applications from Ubuntu s/ware centre solved it for me at least!

    Hope it works for the original thread poster.

    Re: Need help to fix Unity Dash Home Icons

    Sorry, none of the stated methods work on me..

    Here is the process how i got that bugs.
    1. reduce font size using text scaling factor.
    2. then suddenly the icons on dash home cut into half (almost half actually)

    the rest part of the lenses is ok, except the main launcher.

    Unity should have a setting to reduce the icons, imo.

    off topic: the heck? i didn't receive email notifications for this thread even though I've subscribed it.

    Just check the Unity plugin in CompizConfig, if it's selected.

    And the ultimate solution

    Reinstall the Unity

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-desktop
    I hope this last one to work
