I didn't like how the LauncherPro People widget had the name covering up the picture so I changed around the grid to fix it. Hopefully the developer will fix this in future releases, and modders can possibly include this simple fix in their versions.

signedLauncherPro.apk is the release candidate version with only the People widget changed.

signedcom.fede.launcher-1.apk is signal23's CLEAR version (white text / clear bg) - Full screen size as seen here- http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=783427

DIRECTIONS FOR ADDING THIS FIX TO YOUR MOD

You basically need to decompile your LauncherPro apk, change lpwidget_contact_item.xml and then recompile it. It's pretty simple if you know the basics of Android apps. You need APK Manager. Here's the detailed instructions.

1. Send your launcherpro apk from your phone to your computer. You can browse to data/app in root explorer and it should be there. I usually send it via dropbox.
2. Put the APK in the put-apk-here-for-modding folder in APK Manager.
3. Load script.bat. Select launcherpro using (22). Decompile (9)
4. Browse to the Projects folder and browse to com.fede.launcher-1.apk\res\layout
5. Edit lpwidget_contact_item.xml in notepad to the following


Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<FrameLayout android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="130.0dip"
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<ImageView android:id="@id/imagey" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="100.0dip" android:scaleType="centerCrop" android:layout_gravity="top|center" />
<TextView android:textSize="13.0sp" android:textColor="#ffffffff" android:ellipsize="marquee" android:layout_gravity="bottom|center" android:id="@id/texty" android:background="#aa000000" android:padding="5.0dip" android:fadingEdge="horizontal" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content" android:singleLine="true" />
</FrameLayout>
6. Save it.
7. Back in APK manager, compile (11). Compile it as a System App. It will ask you if you want to copy over original files, do that (y). It will prompt you to go to the new "keep" folder and delete any files that you are modifying in the new apk. Delete resources.arsc in the root folder and then delete lpwidget_contact_item.xml from the layout folder. Go back to APK Manager and hit enter.
8. It will compile the rest of it for you. Sign it using (12).
9. You now have a signed version of the APK in your place-apk-here-for-modding folder. Transfer that to your phone. Uninstall your current version of LP and install the new one. Restore your old settings.

THANK YOU!!!! That issue was bugging the crap out of me too, but I didn't know how to fix it. I'm so glad you figured it, and your instructions are so clear and easy to use. I hate when people give instructions and skip steps, so noobs like me would get lost. But your instructions worked step by step!! Thanks again man!

I used your apk yesterday and I love it, only problem I have is my bookmarks popup is now light grey.
Not a huge deal as I hardly use it, but thought I'd let you know.

Thanks.

No it's not possible.
You need LauncherPro Plus.

Any chance this could be updated to the latest version of LauncherPro?

Many thanks in advance

Edit: Never mind. I was able to do it using your instructions. Thanks again, this is GREAT!

This would be awesome if we could use LPP People widget and the Bookmark widget as stand alone .apk's, it's one of the biggest reasons why I use LPP. I HATE there docking system.
