I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 9.10 from 9.04 and I can't seem to find the Ubuntu Software Center. Is there a way I can get it to Show? In Synaptic it is installed, but can't find it anyware. I also tried to re-install it in Synaptic.

You need to create a new menu item entry with the following values:

  • Type: Application
  • Name: Ubuntu Software Center
  • Command: /usr/bin/software-center
  • Comment: Lets you choose from thousands of free applications available for Ubuntu
  • Icon: /usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/softwarecenter.png

For the icon, you must click on the icon (top left)

That way, the menu entry will be recreated.
