    Hi,

    Most of the Motorola widgets are visually broken when using the five rows of icons with LP. I had to scrap the calendar, which I actually liked, to use the LP calendar widget instead. I don't like it as much. I also can't use the news widget. No matter what size I make the widget it gets visually broken.

    Does anyone have a solution that doesn't involve not using five rows? Is there an alternative news widget that won't break with LP?
    Well I'm guessing the reason you don't want to lose 5 rows is to have more icons on the screen, if you go back to 4 you won't have your issue and can then use "Multicon Widget" or similar (Multicon Widget - Android app on AppBrain). I haven't tried it but I will some day...

    LauncherPro and Android newbie here. I am running 2.2 on Dinc and really prefer this over the stock Sense. I am having a problem with unread text messages.

    I have all the options checked to show unread/missed counts for phone/gmail/messages. Everything works great with custom icons for missed calls and gmail count, but not messages. If I change the messages icon to default LP icon, the count shows. I can then choose a custom icon and count will show ok for awhile.

    Then after a restart of LP or reboot of phone, the unread count quits coming through. I change the icon again and it fixes it.

    Is there a way to get the unread messages count to always show without having to switch back to default LP icon? Is Sense running in background messing with count? If so, why does count show for default LP icons?

    I have scoured the internet but can't find anything specific to my issue.

    Thanks!!

    I'm running Launcher Pro on my Fascinate, unrooted. I also bought LPI so I have the freedom to change the icons in my dock but all have them that grayish, kind of transparent look. There are tons of dock options but I'm greedy and wish there were more. My favorite features about Launcher Pro include the HIDDEN APP feature, the unread gmail/messaging feature, and the dock at the bottom.

    Who has the best source of color custom icons? Everything I have found is just blah or iphone themed. No thanks.
    I've been playing with LP for the past couple of days, and really like the features and flexibility it provides. (the 'swipe gesture' from the dock icons is particularly slick!) however, it seems to be killing my battery life on my Droid X. With stock 'philblur', I would almost always get through a full day, even with fairly heavy use. Now I'm down to ~20% by 3:00 with very minimal use.

    Are there settings that I'm missing that could be eating the battery? Thoughts?
    I'd love the answer to these also.

    I have a question: when I open my task manager, Launcher Pro is usually yellow and is using a lot of CPU and RAM. Is this okay, or should I tweak something in the settings like under memory usage or something?

    I think it is normal. It is the same way on my fascinate. Reducing the memory allocated to LP in the settings would degrade performance I would think...

    I apologize if this has been asked. I tried launcherpro and in the dock where you would have the contacts icon. Everytime I hit it I would get an error saying it could not open that. I couldn't figure out how to fix it so had to uninstall.
    Any help on this? Thanka

    I just set mine up again. I had to long press the icon, and change shortcut to the Contacts app, then changed the icon to my custom one.

    Samsung uses a different Contacts app than the default app that LauncherPro links to.

    Simply remove the standard contacts link that comes with LP, then add the contacts from your apps on your samsung phone and choose the same LP icon and all will be fixed.

    Wow, I did a full reset on my droid 2 because I think one of my apps was creating some problems on it.

    I reinstalled LaunchPro and was adjusting some of my settings. I hit the home button, and now all I get is a force close and report. I can't get past it to make any changes or delete the darn thing.

    What a bummer.

    Alright, good to know, because I had an issue with Launcher Pro breaking one of my many android phones once. So I hope when I get 2.2, all goes well, with Launcher Pro on it.

    Is there a place to get the Droid X dock icons so they can be used in Launcher Pro plus?

    You can still use your stock icons on the dock.. It'll ask you if you want to use LP icons or custom icons after you select your app. Just press the back button and it'll leave the stock icon there instead.

    Im a noob here, converted from Blackberry Storm 2 weekes ago.

    This is my 1st post! I am trying to get the Developers attention.

    I bought Launcher Pro Plus on Thanksgiving morning more than 72 hours ago, love the program however my unlock code is not working & I have sent the developer messages as well as opened up a trouble ticket and have not recd 1 response from the developer.

    This is truly quite upsetting!

    Developer if you read this PLEASE give me a working unlock code or a refund immediately.........

    So I just installed LauncherPro last night. It was set to 3 homescreens, so I changed it to 7. Is there any way to re-arrange my screens to make my default on in the middle? Or do I have to totally delete everything off and move everything around?
