I am using Ubuntu 12.04 The Software Center has not been performing very well. Now I turned on the computer and the software center icon is missing. How do I get it back?

Asked by Steve on 2012-05-24

Can you help me get the software center back without a total reinstall?

Hmm I'm not sure what happened exactly but it sounds like you might be able to just use the terminal to re-install the Ubuntu software center. Something like this should do:

sudo apt-get remove software-center
sudo apt-get install software-center

Just be careful that it doesn't uninstall a bunch of other packages by mistake.

Can you help with this problem?
