The problem was solved by installing TK-Gapps micro on top of the pico that were installed. A day later it stopped working again. If I use the google now launcher instead of trebuchet it does work.
Not for the GMail app (on non root). If you are willing to use online, you may be able to use some sort of widget that links to the search query (just search it up and copy & paste).
The same thing happened to me and here's what worked: Go to Application Manager and keep rolling right until you get to the "Turned Off" header. My Google Search was there. I simply had to turn it back on and then it appeared back in the widget options and I was able to pick it up from there and move it to the home screen.
