    Missing search box in Software Center

    My Software Center is missing the search box in the top right: http://daviddoria.com/Uploads/SoftwareCenter.png

    Is there a way to get it to be displayed?

    Thanks,

    David

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall software-center
    I hope that will help you.

    all the best,
    Dont miss anything even it is small. one small pin is enough to bring down a man.

    I am having the same problem. I have tried the re-install and I tried uninstalling and reinstalling. The search bar is still missing though. I have also restarted my computer JIK but no dice. Any one else have ideas how to fix this?

    I'm using 11.10, logging in with gnome shell desktop, and the software center search has always been missing. When I go back to Ubuntu, it's there again. Just not with gnome shell.

    I have this problem on 12.10, but in my case at least, I found it was simply a layout bug with an easy workaround: Make the software center's window frame a bit wider ( ~ 800 pixels ) and the search field will appear again. If you close the window when it is wide enough to show the search field, then it will remember that width and show the search field correctly next time it is run.

    If a post is older than a year or so and hasn't had a new reply in that time, instead of replying to it, create a new thread. In the software world, a lot can change in a very short time, and doing things this way makes it more likely that you will find the best information. You may link to the original discussion in the new thread if you think it may be helpful.
