Launcher Modular



  • @wgarcia Exept for flashing the bootloader, switching channels is very much like a 'full' install without wipe from the installer.



  • Have been using Launcher Modular for a few days now and it's great! Thank you for all the time and effort put into this launcher.

    As a newcomer to UT I'd like to be able to get a direct read out on the battery level (top bar is too small). uPower app is installed in my Launcher. Instead of having the Weather forecast tool (can't change the weather after all) I'd rather have the battery percentage/time left for my OPO 3T displayed (opposed to the weather I can change the battery level if needed 😉).

    Is there a simple way to accommodate?

    Thank you

    Maybe you can always send it to me, I'll watch.

    When i get it crashing while enabling image page, the LM log vanish... (using the log viewer from open store)

    As a workeround, you can add battery percentage in top bar with UT Tweak Tool.



  • @3T_Ed is not possible actualy but maybe later ...

    @Keneda open after crash logviewer and copy paste content, thank you very much

    I already tried this, but as i said above, after crashing, LM log is not longer available in logviewer.

    Curious ...



  • In order to get the News Homescreen working correctly the SimpelestRSS by Kazor is the easiest way. However the app no longer seems to be available in the Open Store. There is a direct link to the app (https://open-store.io/app/simplestrss.kazord) but when opening that it just shows one game appeared called 'Astroid' by Kazord. Would like an open store app to get the News Homescreen up and running. Any suggestions?



  • @3T_Ed
    The app is still in the Open Store.
    You can check on your desktop computer.

    I also checked on my phone, it's there too.
    You probably run a arm64 device and the arm64 version has not been generated yet.
    You can open an issue to the maintainer or try and build your arm64 click package...



  • @AppLee thank for the reply. And you're right, OnePlus 3T ARM64... Will notify dev. As a newbie to Ubuntu building my own click package is on my list to do in the foreseeable future, first I want to make preparations necessary to get the device into a daily driver device. Meanwhile I'm digging into the plethora of possibilities UT has to offer and getting acquainted with terminal command lines.



  • @3T_Ed I didn't see any direct notification, but my friends here tell it to me 🙂
    You should see the arm64 version in openstore now, i can't test it as I haven't any arm64 device yet, feel free to open issue if you have any trouble

    Didn't get to notify you. Thanks to you and this wonderful community the solution is ready. Your app makes it extremely easy to get RSS Feeds loaded in the Launcher Modular. Thank you for putting it up in the store in arm64!!

    As for testing: I will be using the app on a daily basis and will give you feedback if I notice bugs or will be contacting you for suggesting improvements to the app. For now, I noticed the keyboard does not appear (OPO 3T) when trying to enter the RSS link. Managed to do a copy/paste, direct input would be convenient though....



  • @kazord :

    Please ignore my comment regarding the keyboard not appearing. After reboot this feature was there.

    Hi,

    I installed launcher-modular on my phone. After setting it as the "default app" and replacing the standard dash, reverting these settings does nothing. I tried the default remove buttons as well as the link below the buttons.

    After uninstalling the app and restarting, I am no longer able to use the device. I am also unable to reinstall launcher-modular because the OpenStore is not on my Launcher hotbar and the Drawer cannot be opened.

    The following changes from default have been made in /usr/share/unity8/:

    $ diff -r unity8-notbroken/ unity8-broken/
    diff -r unity8-notbroken/Launcher/Launcher.qml unity8-broken/Launcher/Launcher.qml
    53a54,56
    > property bool launchermodular: true
    > readonly property string homeApp: "launchermodular.ubuntouchfr_launchermodular"
    > 
    186a190,195
    > shell.startApp(root.homeApp);
    > if(LauncherModel.search(root.homeApp) >= 0)
    > 	return;
    > else
    > 	root.launchermodular = false;
    > 
    375c384
    <         width: Math.min(root.width, units.gu(81))
    ---
    >         width: Math.min(root.width, units.gu(8))
    

    I had to reinstall Ubuntu Touch on my device to be able to use it again.

    Hi. Running OTA 12, and I am facing the same issue. I cannot revert back to standard dash. Any fixes?



  • What soft have you in your launch bar ?

    if you have terminal app : open it and do

    sudo mount -o remount,rw /
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install unity8 --reinstall -y
    

    if not
    open your webbrowser and visite open store reinstall launchermodular from
    https://open-store.io/app/launchermodular.ubuntouchfr

    and use the reinstall tool in LM "if you can not restore click here"

    --
    sorry for the inconvenience, i made some changes to avoid this but it didn't go to production yet 😞



  • @aviwad
    I guess switching to RC and back to stable channel will fix it.
    That's the easy blunt way 🙂



  • When booting my Oneplus 3T

    1. screen with fastboot/recovery options appears, then after < 5 sec ->
    2. Ubuntu boot screen (Ubuntu with horizontal dots underneath) loading ->
    3. showing blank scope with drawer on right side ->
    4. opens Launcher Modular

    There's no Ubuntu Circle with dots around it. Can't seem to get it in any way. The Circle app from the store does not function either.

    Does LM eliminate/overwrite the UT Circle lockscreen? If not, how to restore the UT lockscreen Circle without having to remove LM?



  • @3T_Ed said in Launcher Modular:

    No.



  • @3T_Ed I myself have a Oneplus 3T, and I only have this problem when the phone starts, the problem disappears right after ... your ubuntu installation should not be good if you still have the problem.



  • You may be right. After installation it said it was successful (and everything works fine except for known camera issue)but I doubt it. Now after customizing the phone and loading it with contents all over, I don't know where to begin to re-install and this is not the right thread for that. Thank you for your help.

    On my Nexus 5 I have to enable "Stats on welcome screen" in the "Security & Privacy" section to get the dotted circle.
