Dashboard Widgets Mysteriously Disappeared

Ever try adding a new Dashboard widget like Stickies, only to find that all the widgets are gone?

Make sure the widgets exist in /Library/Widgets and/or ~/Library/Widgets and then try resetting Launchpad’s Database via Terminal:

$ rm ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db ; killall Dock

This worked for me on Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.2, however it should work on Lion/Mountain Lion also. Post a comment if it worked for you on a different version!
