Brand new to Ubuntu (12.04 LTS). While looking around I must have clicked something and now the launcher is empty and dash is empty. Any ideay where they went and more important how do I get them back? I guess I could do a complete reinstall.

Can you still SEE the launcher?
Is dash home up top still?

The launch bar is on the right, no icons. sometimes as i move the mouse up it, i see the tool tips pop up and if i click, i get the same as if i clicked on the icon.
The very top of the bar has a small grey edge, but I can not do anything with it.

Did you see it before?
And are you sure you clicked something, cause maybe it just crashed. Try restarting, if you haven't.
