I can't begin to guess how you reached this state of affairs, but you
will need to uncomment a line in fstab to have your swap activated
automatically at boot time. Otherwise, you will have no swap until you
issue a swapon command. In all Ubuntu installs that I have done, swap
is handled and registered in fstab automatically.
If you fill your heart with regrets of yesterday and the worries
of tomorrow, you have no today to be thankful for.
