For future reference, you just hold down on an empty space, hit launcher actions, then tap app drawer and it will generate the shortcut then you just drop it onto your dock.

That's not how Trebuchet works. When you long press on empty space, you only get Wallpaper options. This is something that technically qualifies as a bug and should be reported so that it can be resolved more easily than clearing settings for Trebuchet.

the only way to bring it back that worked, was clearing all data for trebuchet :

  • menu button > manage apps > trebuchet > clear data

however (!) when you do so, everything you have on your screens will disappear, and you will have to customize your screens again and recreate all shortcuts, widgets and folders.

I wonder why it happened and if there is way to fix it without loosing your customization.

I didn't run titanium backup after latest ROM flash, thus I didn't have a backup for trebuchet, but if you have it, try to restore data for trebuchet. I'm sure it would be easiest solution

I just made this account to say THANK YOU for making me solve this problem! The solutions are always so simple, but sometimes even us tech-savvys just never get there, until we find an easy 10-second solution we have spent hours googling for. Thanks!

This seems to be a problem with cm 10.1 as I've had it on a few devices now. I believe clearing the cache in recovery helps

Clearing cache or dalvik cache in recovery did not help. Had to clear data

Thumbs up
you're welcome everyone
I'm glad my solution actually helped somebody. It was def. worth creating an account just to post this solution

btw, if anyone tried restoring trebuchet data from backup - let us know how it went.

Deleting app data is not a solution. It's a workaround.

After searching for a long time I consider this to be a big ups in the Trebuchet design.

I use 3 panels in the quick launch for apps (botton) and I can't create duplicated app drawer buttons for the alternative panels... Not nice.

+1
It should be possible to have duplicate app drawer icons/buttons

multiple app drawers
I have spent two days trying to find a solution for those who want a second app drawer... I really miss the simple options of long pressing and choosing launcher options....
