    Last week, my dashboard icon in the dock disappeared in a puff of smoke. I've not been able to restore it back the way it was before (as an icon in the doc).

    I've tried to add it as a login app, but of course it opens up on login. When I run the app, I can't right click on the dock item and choose "keep in dock"

    So, how can I get it back??

    open your apps folder and drag it back on the dock.

    Does it launch when you tap the gray trackball of the connected Mighty Mouse? Or the equivalent trackpad motion? Can you find the Dashboard application with a Spotlight search? If the answer to all 3 is no, then you may have to actually reinstall the OS or use Pacifist to find the package Dashboard is bundled with to put it back on the computer.
