Since the release of the new OS X Lion it has been downloaded by millions of users and just like any new software even this brand new OS is also showing some bugs. Recently users worldwide complained that once after installing any new App it does not appear in the LaunchPad. Well, this is comparatively a small bug and can be easily fixed by tweaking .db file using the Terminal.
The following tweak needs some basic understanding of how to use Terminal. We have complied these steps in the most easiest manner we could so we hope there wont be any problem. For any issues do comment below.
1. Start the Terminal from Spotlight, or you can directly use Finder to go to the address”Applications / Utilities / Terminal”.
2. Type the command cd ~ / Library / Application Support / Dock and press Enter key.
3. Type the command console, to open the Finders Windows Path.
4. Drag the file extension .db to Trash.
5. Retstart the Dock by entering the following command: sudo killall Dock and press Enter Key.
6. When prompted enter the Administrator Password.
As we have deleted the .db file when we restart the Launchpad the OS will recreate the file. While recreating it will include the list of all the newly installed Apps. That’s it, you are done with the tweak.
