Its ok, you don't need to use the launcher. If you install it again don't enable the root option. That option is to hide your navigation and notification bar

I just mentioned that with the launcher so that you shouldn't think that the launcher made the statusbar disappear.

A bug in launcher: I can't scroll in the apps list/icons so I am just seeing the first 6 apps.

Thought about it, but google killed the security feature now tgat you can expand your status bar. Best option is to enable your system security on your device settings. So when you unlock the ubuntu lockscreen you will need to put your pin, password, patter, etc.

That's pointless.... Then I have 2 lockscreens. CM Locker and C-Locker both have it implemented...

Did you expand the list? You have to click the title of the list so that you can ser all your apps.

No, didn't notice that.

Some apps are duplicate, see attached screenshot.
When I click on an app the launcher force closes.

Suggestion: when you long press, you should only be able to delete user apps, not system apps. (Launcher)

    **how to report a bug or error**

    just say what happened, how happened and what's your current settings. Include log cat and screenshot. Feel free to pm me if you don't want to post it here.

    if you want to translate to any new language or edit any language download this file: strings

    1. don't delete the lines that are between <!-- and -->
    <!-- sms count -->
    because this help me reading where it can have any error.

    2. only translate the value of the string
    <string name="app_name">ubuntu lockscreen</string>
    there you only have to edit what is between > and </string> in this example is ubuntu lockscreen.

    3. editing string-array is the same
    <string-array name="action_entries">
    <item>ubuntu stock</item>
    <item>ubuntu green</item>
    <item>ubuntu red</item>
    <item>ubuntu white</item>
    <item>ubuntu black</item>
    <item>ubuntu blue</item>
    <item>ubuntu random</item>

    only translate what is between <item> and </item>

    4. when you have finished translating email the translated file to: [email protected] the title for the mail will be: Ubuntu lockscreen translation. Also remember to include the language name.

    To: [email protected]
    from: [email protected]

    title: Ubuntu lockscreen
    message: Hello attached is the translation to spanish.

    5. also keep in mind that when i have added new strings i will be contacting you so you can translate the new strings.
