    This is not working for me. The girl posted this code to use:



    cd /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/stylesheets
    vi launcher.css

    comment out the following background lines by adding /* to the beginning and */ to the end of the line

    Under .root {

    background: url(../images/scrim.png)

    Under .launcher_fade_bottom {

    background: url(../images/launcher-page-fade-bottom.png)

    Under .launcher_fade_top {

    background: url(../images/launcher-page-fade-top.png)



    When i put the code in, i scroll to the bottom it says 100% complete . I type in reboot. and it does nothing. I tried turning my phone off myself and turned it back on, and nothing changed. Can someone please help me?

    To make this easier just do the following:

    1.) Download the pictures attached to my Post.

    2.) Put your Pre in disk drive and make a folder called 'backups'.

    3.) Put the pics in that folder.

    4.) Take the Pre out of disk mode and root into your Pre.

    5.) Copy-Paste the following code into the terminal.

    rootfs_open -t
    cp /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images/scrim.png /media/internal
    cp /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images/launcher-page-fade-top.png /media/internal/backups/launcher-page-fade-top(2).png
    cp /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images/launcher-page-fade-bottom.png /media/internal/backups/launcher-page-fade-bottom(2).png
    cp /media/internal/launcher-page-fade-bottom.png /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images
    cp /media/internal/launcher-page-fade-top.png /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images
    cp /media/internal/launcher-page-fade-scrim.png /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images


    To revert back to the original copy-paste the following:

    rootfs_open -t
    cp /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images/scrim.png /media/internal
    cp /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images/launcher-page-fade-top.png /media/internal/backups/launcher-page-fade-top(2).png
    cp /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images/launcher-page-fade-bottom.png /media/internal/backups/launcher-page-fade-bottom(2).png
    cp /media/internal/launcher-page-fade-bottom.png /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images
    cp /media/internal/launcher-page-fade-top.png /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images
    cp /media/internal/launcher-page-fade-scrim.png /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/images

    When using the user account you created you do not have any root privlages. Only root (user account) can make changes. However, you can not connect via SSH with the root account.

    ok the manual way to do this by "vi" is as follows (i only use putty so for all other ways it will be different)

    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /
    cd /usr/lib/luna/system/luna-applauncher/stylesheets
    cp launcher.css launcher.css.bak
    vi launcher.css
    now if you know how to use vi go to each location mentioned

    this
    Code:
    .root {
            position:relative;
            overflow:hidden;
            left:0px;
            top:0px;
            width:320px;
            height: 480px;
            background-image:url(../images/scrim.png);
    should look like this
    Code:
    .root {
            position:relative;
            overflow:hidden;
            left:0px;
            top:0px;
            width:320px;
            height: 480px;
    //      background-image:url(../images/scrim.png);
    and this
    Code:
    .launcher_fade_bottom {
            position: absolute;
            bottom: 0px;
            background: url(../images/launcher-page-fade-bottom.png) center center n
            z-index:20;
            left:0px;
            width:320px;
            height:30px;
            -webkit-palm-mouse-target: ignore;
    should look like this
    Code:
    .launcher_fade_bottom {
            position: absolute;
            bottom: 0px;
    //      background: url(../images/launcher-page-fade-bottom.png) center center n
            z-index:20;
            left:0px;
            width:320px;
            height:30px;
            -webkit-palm-mouse-target: ignore;
    and finally this
    Code:
    .launcher_fade_top {
            position:absolute;
            background: url(../images/launcher-page-fade-top.png) center center no-r
            z-index:20;
            left:0px;
            top:0px;
            width:320px;
            height:30px;
            -webkit-palm-mouse-target: ignore;
    should look like this
    Code:
    .launcher_fade_top {
            position:absolute;
    //      background: url(../images/launcher-page-fade-top.png) center center no-r
            z-index:20;
            left:0px;
            top:0px;
            width:320px;
            height:30px;
            -webkit-palm-mouse-target: ignore;
    then save and exit outta "vi" and

    Code:
    mount -o remount,ro /
    stop LunaSysMgr && start LunaSysMgr
    and voila invisible launcher background

    if you need help usuing "vi" follow that link

    when you vi launcher.css

    type "i" then use the arrows to scroll down to each section i listed then jus put "//" in front of the lines.

    then after your done press the "esc" key then press the "shift" and ":" key's together at the same time then typ in wq and hit enter, den just do the ending code

    if anything use rennat's codes to revert 1st then to install

    I can honestly say this is one of the easiest and coolest modifications to WebOS you can do. You can leave the launcher open on your screen and lock it and it sort of resembles an Android layout. Follow johnsavage006s' advice, just comment out the background lines, it's much easier and safer.

    The only problem arises when you open the launcher over an app or open cards. I opted for a black overlay instead of a gray and love it.

    Oh well, i give up. I dont know how to do it, i have tried over and over. All the rest of the codes i have done, they have worked, i had no problem, but this one. I simply dont understand it. Thank you all for giving me the information. I really appreciate it..
  12. #12  
    Have you tried my fixed code? I messed up and tried to rename the backuped file an invalid name. You sound be able to just copy-paste it in and it will reboot and should work.

    It might be better if you just paste line by line in. It may differ between my computer and yours.
