Somehow the Google Chrome entry in the applications menu disappeared in Ubuntu.
Is there a simple way of getting it back?

To edit the menu, right click on it and go to 'Edit Menus'. Find Chrome, and double click to bring up the properties window. Press its picture to select a new icon. Mine was in
/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps, and yours might be around there somewhere. if not, you can always download a new icon yourself.
1- Create a desktop file (e.g. chrome.desktop) on your Desktop and insert the following content into that file:
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Type=Application Terminal=false Exec=/usr/bin/google-chrome Name=Google Chrome Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/48x48/apps/google-chrome.png
2- Make it executable by running this command:
chmod +x ~/Desktop/chrome.desktop
3- Add it to the launcher:
cp ~/Desktop/chrome.desktop ~/.local/share/applications/
