How to restore DashBoard?

Was having trouble with DashBoard and used the Terminal Command: sudo killall -9 DashboardClient to kill it. Now I want to restart it. Have tried rebooting and clicking the DashBoard App icon but DashBoard doesn't open. Is there a Terminal un-kill command?

1. What trouble, exactly, were you having with Dashboard?

2. Don't use -9 as a flag for killall. It's "overkill".

3. What log messages are being left when you try to launch Dashboard?

Here is what Console says when I double click on the DashBoard icon in Applications.
