    I updated to Lollipop a few days ago and this is the only thing that's driving me crazy. My Google calendar widgets disappeared so I thought at first that the message:
    "Unfortunately TouchWiz home has stopped" was only in adding calendar widgets but it's happening for all widgits.

    I don't know how to be a responsible adult without my calendar displayed on the home screen. Please help! :-)

    I'm more screwed than I thought. Besides widgets, I also can't drag any app to my home screen to create shortcuts. Please help?

    If you tap & hold on a blank spot in your homescreen a menu should pop up with different options. Have you tried to add widgets that way?

    Take a look at this thread. Some people managed to fix a similar problem.

    I can't hold down a blank space like I used to before the update. If I hold down any shortcut that's already on my desktop, I can't do anything because I get the same error message. I read a lot if threads on TouchWiz before posting and didn't see the same issue. I'll check this thread out. Is there something that can be uninstalled/reinstalled thst controls TouchWiz?

    I am having the same issue, updated this morning and now I cannot add widgets or apps to my screens. I can get into the section where you select the widget/app you want to drag and drop, but the minute you click and hold to drag I get a message saying "Unfortunately, TouchWiz home has stopped." I read through the thread suggested and had no luck with that. Anyone have any thoughts?

    SOLUTION - I found a solution in a thread after searching for a while and it may work for you. I had already tried all the other suggestions short of a factory reset. Here is the simple solution that worked for me: Go to settings –> my device –> Motions and Gestures, and turn off all gestures in that menu. After all the things I tried, I can't believe something that simple worked. Hopefully this works for others!

    Colld88 is so right! Thanks go to Donald for helping out where this pathetic little firm in Korea has no funds for a decent help desk. How long are we going to have to put up with is socalled "service"and the lack thereof? Or is Samsung going to donate 99% of its profits to charity?

    I've been working with one of our supporters (JRT Studio) who cannot find this setting on his SM-J200 device. After reviewing his device's manual, this setting has been removed. If anyone has any other advice on how to resolve this issue, it would be greatly appreciated.
