There’s been a few posts lately of launcher disappearing. Most likely everyone suffered from the same update which introduced a bug. When you boot your computer choose from the grub menu β€œAdvanced options for Ubuntu”. From the submenu select the next oldest kernel version that works.

After answer was accepted a comment was made how system worked in recovery mode. If that’s the case try the solution in this answer:

rm -rf ~/.config/compiz-1/compizconfig/*
sudo reboot

When rebooting select the most recent kernel rather than the older recovery option.
