LauncherPro over old widgets
I've been running LP+ for a while, but I recently read that there could be a performance hit if you didn't clear your original Blur screens of all running widgets. I'm pretty sure I didn't. Is there a way I can temporarily disable LP so that I can go back and clear out my blur screens?

Install another launcher from the market like ADW. After you install it, hit the home button, you'll get the opportunity to switch launchers. Goto the default launcher and clear the widgets. Hit home again, and choose LP as your default again. Uninstall ADW (unless you want to keep it)

I can think of all kinds of ways to do this without backing up and uninstalling or downloading ADW.
Just get homeswitcher. I just did it to make sure mine was all clean (often when you create a shortcut to your homescreen through an app, it creates it on both home screens).
you can go to launcher pro in your manage applications options and clear defaults, then hit home and it will prompt you to pick a launcher. pick home without clicking "always ask" and then just do your thing.
no reason to make it difficult.

Question: With 2.2 and LP+, there was no fancy landscape "ribbon" viewing of photographs stored on the X, as is now the case with 2.2. Also, I couldn't access the photo folders. It was just a static bunch of thumbnails.
And, unfortunately, most of the Moto widgets (particularly contact shortcuts) still didn't work properly with LP+. BUT I loved that dock! And the flexibility of screens.
Is there something I missed in the install or settings? Anyone else having similar problems or is it something I did (or didn't) do right.Always learning ...

Hmmmm. I just did a Factory Reset on the X so maybe now the LP+ will work better than it did before on my 2.2
And, yeah, I dl the home switcher and it worked just fine. Someone must have had a problem and alerted them.Always learning ...
