Rootless Pixel Launcher - Without Search bar

F-Droid has the Rootless Pixel Launcher available for installation, but this version has the “Google Search Bar” appearing and no option to remove it. However, there was a user on Github who created a version without such thing, and I thought maybe F-Droid could include it? I for example wanted to remove the search bar, and had to go looking for it. Here is the link.

Actually just noticed that this is only the “Go” version, without widgets support. I meant to suggest this one:

Did they change appid? If not…not…

Hum… not sure what you mean, I suppose each app has a unique ID and those forks didn’t create a new one? So F-Droid can’t have two apps with the same ID? I am not sure if that’s what you mean, I am not used to Android development and so on.

You’ve guessed right, any fork needs its own unique separate ID.

I suppose not then.
Would that be a trivial thing to do or would involve too much added work for the developers?

Depends on the code itself, usually it’s pretty trivial.

Eg. They can add a flavour with a suffix

I was just now trying to find a way to contact the developer and couldn’t find any email. Given that I don’t currently have access to a Github account that would be the only way to contact the developer. I am forced to give this up. Anyway, how much update could a launcher need? :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks anyway for the help.
