    Has anyone else experienced missing icons in Launchpad? Any idea how to fix this?

    Specifically, only Apple apps' icons are missing for me.

    This randomly happened to me as well. A reboot fixed it, but I would like to know what caused it.

    A reboot did noting for me.

    I contacted Support and they suggested I re-install Mavericks but I told them, I'd rather leave it as it's not a major issue for me.

    Then after a search online I discovered if you type the following in terminal, it 'resets' the Launchpad and it resolved my issue:
    rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db; killall Dock

    This happened to me as well. I suspect it was after doing a system clean up with CleanMyMac, which I notice you also have installed.

    CleanMyMac is not ready for 10.9 unless you have the Latest version.

    missing icons in launchpad

    Its just started happening to me too, and I'm not using any clean-up software.

    A health warning on the terminal command given above: it also removes any grouping of programs you may have done in the launchpad - and given how clumsy the apple grouping mechanism is, that can be a non-trivial drawback.
