Unfortunately, @paphonb has said there won't be a pixel launcher Port with gestures

He's working on this launcher at the moment and claims a pixel launcher Port with gestures is "too much effort"

You can read his comments in the thread below.

Edit

@garylawd

I know the launcher Ive linked is not the official "pixel 4" launcher Port, but right now it's as close to it as anyone is prepared to go.

If @paphonb won't do a Pixel 4 port and claims it's "too much effort" I'm pretty sure no one else will...........

Just something to bear in mind........

No that's an aosp quickstep port not pixel launcher port.....


Ok, I linked the AOSP port because @paphonb Isnt going to do a pixel 4 port.

Theres one problem with all these "Pixel launchers"
They're all the bloody same!!!!?

Here's the OFFICIAL PIXEL 4 launcher

https://9to5google.com/2019/09/27/download-updated-pixel-launcher-pixel-4/

(It will only work on PIXEL devices running android 10)

While we are on the subject of Pixel launchers, haven't you noticed that the Pixel 4 launcher looks no different to the AOSP one?
or looks no different to the quickstep launcher that's default on Nokia android one Devices?
OR looks no different to the launcher3 that's default on some other Nokia's and Motorola devices (which if you check are actually a renamed quickswitch launcher)
They all look identical to each other, so isn't it any wonder some people get confused with them.?......:eek:
@paphonb has already stated publically he's not prepared to do a pixel 4 port as it's "too much effort" so the AOSP one is the closest thing to a pixel 4 port anyone is going to get right now.
Rather than shoot me down in flames for linking the best alternative, just understand you are not going to get anything better than that right now......

So I have a LG G Flex 2 running Android Lollipop 5.0.1 is there a version for Android Lollipop 5.0.1?

Did you reaf the OP (first post) and the thread title??

Android 7.0 is a minimum requirement for this launcher to work it's says (app) (7.0) Rootless Pixel 2 launcher in the Thread title... :eek:

If you Google "pixel launcher for android lollipop" you might find something suitable, but I doubt it because most of the pixel launchers features won't work on pre (before) marshmallow, and many app development teams are not supporting lollipop any longer, but there is this launcher that supports lollipop on Google playstore, but I haven't used it or can confirm if it's any good or if it even works.

Hey any way to disable the white dock in the newest version? Love the launcher tho. Been using it for too long but just got the new version and wasn't fan of the dock personally. So any way to change it ?
Thanks.

There isn't a white dock on the latest version or the previous version to that.

Not being mean but are you sure you are using Paphonbs modded pixel launcher and not something else?

    FAQ
    Q: Notification badges is not working
    A: Read the instructions here. Only working on 8.0 and above for now.

    Q: It's crashing for me
    A: Attach a logcat when reporting issues or it will be ignored.

    Q: Weather/At A Glance not working
    A: Make sure your Google app is the latest version and installed as a system app then try this.

    Q: My icons are not rounded
    A: It's up to your ROM to decide which one is used.

    Q: It says "App not installed" when I try to change my wallpaper.
    A: Install Google's Wallpapers app from Play Store.

    Q: Does this launcher support icon packs?
    A: No. Neither this nor the original Pixel Launcher support icon packs. But if you're rooted, you can use Pixel Launcher Mods to change icons or apply an icon pack.

    Q: I got an error saying "App not installed" when I try to install this launcher
    A: This launcher has the same package name as Pixel Launcher. You need to uninstall other versions of Pixel Launcher first. If it is a system app, use the Magisk module to install this launcher. A variant of this mod with a new package name is now available.

    Q: I got an error saying "There was a problem parsing the package" when I try to install
    A: Starting from version 5 (based on P Pixel Launcher), this launcher only supports Android 7 and above.

    Q: The launcher crashes when launching some apps.
    A: This is probably a bug in a WIP feature in the launcher. A workaround is to change icon shape in launcher settings.
