Hi. Great patch. I do not understand why thinks like this are not the components of SailfishOS itself. Anyway, it stopped working with the last  SailfishX upgrade. The solution greatly appreticiated. Hope that it would not be much complicate. Thanks!

Всего Вам самого светлого, вы не думали добавить опцию *empty folder name* как в патче MoreFoldersIcon ? Патчи между собой не совместимы...посоветуйте что нибудь.

After update and applying the patch the homescreen and launcher are empty and no ap is shown. I can still see the events from and the ambience switcher. I connected via SSH. How can I remove the patch? Please help!

I also have problems applying the patch with latest SFOS update. Do you know the cause? Release notes from Jolla mention some launcher related fixes, so that's most probably an issue? Would be nice if ca figure it out. Thanks in advance.

coderus's picture

It's EZ, but i have no time for that right now. Not a problem for you to open folder icon and revert to default icons for now.

naytsyrhc's picture

No, no problem at all. Take your time. Your effort is really appreciated. Thanks for looking/confirming. Looking forward to a patch soon.
