Hello!

For those who can not remove the Search Bar from the Home Screen, I found a way to do it.

This is for CyanogenMod 11, KitKat 4.4.3 Build 14/06/2014:

On the Home Screen, you press and hold the screen, untill the "wallpapers/widgets/themes" options come out.
When that happens, press the three dots that look like an arrow, it will open another menu with lots of options to change.
There, the first option you can change is the Search Bar, turn it off. Press the three dots again to minimize the menu, hit back and that's it.

Hope this helped.

This is actually pretty helpful. As I never knew there was extra features like these on the new Trebuchet launcher.

Nice find!

You are welcome!
Yes, I found it by mistake, and didn't know how to get to that place again... But once I did, I wanted to share this with everyone.
Now we don't need to change the Trebuchet launcher to get rid of that. Even though it's bugged... When getting the "trebuchet has stopped" error (when adding a widget on the home screen), I just reboot the phone, and it's working again. Although even this sucks...

But at least I'm happy I found how to get rid of that annoying search bar.

I'm having the same issue. I just installed Cyanogenmod on my phone and when I was customizing the home screen, I saw exactly what the OP shows in his screenshots. However, after installing Google Apps, that screen has changed. It only shows the Wallpapers, Widgets and Settings buttons, and no button to expand settings. Pressing the menu button doesn't do anything either. In both cases I was using the default Android theme.

Cyanogenmod version 12.1. Android version 5.1.1
