Default Go Launcher EX guide

i posted this in a thread in the ascend section but figured everyone could use it....


first time intensively using the full post option, so bear with me.

the x's next to setting indicate that i have them checked. if there are multiple settings available i will put the first three letters such as (tra) for the transparent dock setting. screenshot below if you like them use these settings.


this is a short over view of the controls and menu options for GO LAUNCHER. there will also be links for useful apps and items.


Go Launcher (GL) Preferences.
yes, the menu tells you what these do, but i'm also going to give tips and try to clarify a few things.

Screen display

Display Settings

Status bar- check on to show the status bar at the top of your phone, uncheck to hide it. this only hides the status bar while in home screen view if something occurs the stat bar will show back up. it will also remain visible while using certain apps and when in menus.


xScreens scroll circularly- if you swipe left on the first screen you go to the last and vice verce. i only use two screens so its nice being able to swipe either direction to get to my common apps. (see screenshots below)


xWallpaper scrolling- check to have the wall paper move in unison to your home screen swipes. if you are running stock rom and have choppy transition try turning this off.

App icon labels- shows or hides app names on the home screen.

(5x5)Grid size- adjusts the number of rows and columns available for apps and widgets. the first number indicates rows the second, columns.

Home Screen Transition

(f/s)Transition- changes the screen change animation to-

Default- no effect the screen just slides left or right.

Bounce- apps and widgets bounce, like a kid making a paper doll walk /\/\/\ like so.

Bulldoze- peels the apps and widgets, imagine you are scraping them off with a bulldozer.

Cube (inside)- moves apps to look like yo are in a room and looking from wall to wall. best with four or more screens

Cube(outside)- now you are turning a cube in your hands, again, best with four screens

Flip(simple)- your apps and widgets flip over as if on pages.

Flip (with wallpaper)- flips as though the wallpaper is also on a card. you may want to disable wallpaper scrolling for a nicer transition.

Roll- imagine your apps and widgets are on a wheel. you may want to bring down your fling speed for this one and the next two.

Wave- apps and widgets move like waves are under them.

Windmill- apps move as if the top is attached to the hub of a wind mill. best with four or more screens.

(100)Fling speed-how fast your home screen transition occurs. if you are having choppy transitions turn this down.

(100)Elasticity-controls how far your screen overshoots during fast transitions.

Screen indicator-

[B]Screen indicator-/B] shows a small line of dots indicating your screen.

xAuto hide screen indicator- the afore mentioned dots will disappear after a short period of time. only active if the previous box is checked.

dock icons can also be set by long holding any icon and tapping choose icon

(2)Dock row-changes how many available docks there are. change docks by sliding left or right on the dock.

grid size- set how many apps show at a time by controlling number of rows/columns.

xApp icon labels- shows or hides app names.

Hide app icons- you can choose to hide apps from your drawer from here. check the apps you want to hide and press the back button on the phone to save.

(alp)Icon sorting-choose how your icons are sorted, alphabetically, chronologically from newest to oldest or vice verce.

(win)Show effect-adds an effect to the app drawer appearing.

Running tab

Operation settings

ITA with NoNameFace, but if you don't want to download a new app for whatever reason, you can do it the more time-consuming way. ;-)

You can go into Settings-Applications-Manage Applications and click on whichever home is currently your default one and tap on it. Near the bottom of the page is the option 'launch by default'. You can tap clear defaults and then hit your home button. You should then have the option to open by any of the homes you have installed onto your device and there is a check mark underneath to 'use by default for this action.' Just remember to click in the box so the checkmark appears before tapping on 'Go Launcher Ex'. It'll then be your default home launcher. Good luck!


Thanks Tokenpoke for your wonderful guide. I can't find the transparent dock style on the market, but have since simply replaced all but the middle icon with separate transparent icons. Is this a style on the market?

If by transparent dock, you mean it looks like there is no dock behind your icons, just go under your dock options and choose 'hide dock'. Works for me:


If that's not what you mean, well then I dunno, you'll have to be more specific

it makes it less likely to be killed off when you get low on memory. Ive never had a problem with it, so I've never had to use that setting, though.

Does anyone know how to make the menu button become a search shortcut when held down for a long period? The stock TW launcher on my Galaxy S2 would go to search after holding it down but in Go Launcher EX it does nothing and I cannot find any options to change this?

Thanks

Can somebody tell me if it is possible and how it is done to change icon for an app in the app draw for apps that are not covered with a Icon pack?
I have a Icon pack installed but half of apps don't have their themed icons and I would like to assign them other icons that were not applyed automatically....

Is it possible????

Its not possible as far as I can tell. Most themes will however put a blank icon around it, to ar least make it the same shape. I'm usibg the Suave HD theme, which makes all icons iPhone style.

I'm also using the Signa icon pack for my desktops which looks gorgeous

Odd. Using Go Launcher on Galaxy S, and long press of menu button still opens up search for me.

Nice post. Is there anyway to hide the dock and make its space available? I love the full screen look this gave me in ADW.

I want to change the wallpaper in my app drawer, as well as do a custom dock background, but the settings don't appear to be the same as listed in the original post. Did they change where these settings are in the latest versions of Go Launcher?

Yep it changed. But not really difficult to look for if you just explore. Wallpapers for Desktop, Dock and App drawer are in "Theme Settings".

Default Good, but it's got to go...

GO Launcher EX is indeed a pretty app, as are the other GO apps I've installed.

...B'ut... they run like sleepy dogs on my ageing HTC Hero and I want to uninstall them. Can't find the Launcher app anywhere on my machine (rooted, CM7-modded) and the original 'Which launcher as default?' message can't be found to swap back to the default.

Can any GO Launcher users tell me how to wipe this/these app(s), please?

I think if you uninstall it, you will get back the basic launcher.

Is there any way to move the dock to the bottom of the screen in horizontal mode? Or is there any launcher which supports it? Thanks!

Default Icons

Hi
So this may not be possible, or it may be really simple and because I'm so new just don't have a clue. I have an icon pack (youeye zorsha design) that I love, but it's an mtz file for miui. Is there any way to convert it for Go Launcher Ex?

They have changed the font settings and now most of the font packs I have don't show up anymore. It says to put 3rd party fonts in the /GOLauncher EX/fonts folder, how do you do this? I can't find where the third party fonts are, I've looked using both my pc and ASTRO. Can fonts that are phone only even be moved? I emailed the developer, no response. I have the HTC Droid Incredible running Gingerbread 2.3.4

I used Astro to do this, but you could do it with your phone mounted as a disk drive to your computer too.

Copy and paste any fonts you want to use in GoLauncher into SDcard/GOLauncherEX/fonts folder (on your sd card). Then from your homescreen on your phone (if you are mounted as a disk drive, unmount first) do Menu > Preferences > Visual Settings > Font > Scan Font. This takes a minute. After it's done, hit Select Font and scroll to find the font you want. It changes the font of all text associated with GoLauncher (icon labels, menus, etc...)

Hope this helps.

Is there a way to reorder the icons in a folder? I've tried, and haven't found a way. Now they are in the order they were added, and I want to order them alphabetically, or perhaps a custom order. I can't find any documentation on the Go Launcher site.

Open your app drawer, then

Menu > Sorting > Alphabetical

Quick question...Under Screen Settings/Dock Settings it doesn't give me the "Select Style" option. It just shows Dock Row and Loop Mode. I have a Nook Tablet rooted and it was there before when I first rooted it but after the OTA update I got the root back finally but now I can't make the Dock bar transparent like before. Any suggestions?

If you are using the latest version of Go Launcher, dock backgrounds are in menu>preferences>visual settings>backgrounds

Here's a few more to add:

Screen settings
Desktop settings
Grid size - the numbers refer to rows first and columns second, the opposite of what you would expect.
4x4, 5x4, 5x5, and custom grids all stay the same when in landscape mode. For example, if you set it to 5 rows and 4 columns, it will have 5 rows and 4 columns in both portrait and landscape. This is pretty obnoxious because it squishes the icons together when I switch to landscape.

App Drawer settings
App drawer tab - the tab at the top of the app screen that shows "all", "recent", or "running"

Grid size - the numbers refer to rows first and columns second, the opposite of what you would expect.
4x4, 4x5, 5x4 switch to 3 rows and 6 columns when in landscape mode
5x5 switches to 4 rows and 6 columns when in landscape mode
Custom grids stay the same when in landscape mode. For example, if you set it to 5 rows and 4 columns, it will have 5 rows and 4 columns in both portrait and landscape.

Effects
App Drawer
Enter transition - this is the transition when entering or exiting the app drawer.

Operation Settings
Screen Orientation
Keep vertical (disable keyboard) - this keeps the home screen and app screen from rotating when you slide out a physical keyboard. It doesn't affect any other screens and it doesn't actually disable the keyboard.

Notes
Here's an important note. With the stock launcher, you press the "contacts" icon from the home screen and it takes you to the contacts, where the contacts menu is at the top ("Contacts", "Groups", "History", and "Activities"). Using Go Launcher EX, you hit the contacts icon from the home screen and it takes you to the screen but without this menu. If you hit "back", the menu appears. I almost uninstalled this software because I couldn't figure out how to get to my groups!

In the app screen, when you hit the menu key, "settings" takes you to Go Launcher EX settings. In the home screen, when you hit the menu key, "preferences" takes you to Go Launcher EX settings. "Settings" takes you to phone settings. I must have hit the wrong key 50 times.

The question was referring to sorting apps in folders, not the app drawer, which to my knowledge cannot be done yet.

Default Changing Fonts In GO Launcher

I found a great pack of 75 free fonts that you can use in GO Launcher.

It's called Font SMS (Pro) by Starrlite.

See it here on the Android Market:

market.android.com/details?id=trendboards.fontsms.pro

Hope this helps the people who couldn't find any fonts before.

I don't have "theme settings". Running v 2.75 which is the latest on a Samsung 10.1 tab. Also, for the life of me, I cannot get the dock to rotate into landscape. There is nothing at all that controls this that I can find. THis would make the launcher useless, and I've used it on my phones for years. The one thing I will say, is it makes the tab much less Tab-like, and more phone like compared to ADW which has more of a true Tab version.

They changed it again. Its now under "visual settings>backgrounds".

Anyway, the dock doesn't really rotate into landscape. It stays there but the icons rotate.

One thing I can say, the developers really read your suggestions. I suggest asking for a "tablet optimized" version for the dock. There was one time when I asked help for a specific bug for a certain Go app (note that there were no complaints about the bug in the market) and a week later they had a new update which addressed it. So I would suggest using the feedback option in the preferences menu. Personally, after handling my friend's new tablet, I prefer holding them in portrait, but that's relative.

What do you want to change, the system fonts? You don't just slap on fonts like that. They have to be installed into the system. You need an app for that.

I really need some help, trying to turn on the popup quick menu, because right now I just get the options to replace/rename/delete with a long press. I can't find the quick popup menu tab to enable it. It is supposed to be under the "operations" tab/folder, but I can't locate "operations" tab anywhere.

Under preferences, the gesture settings are their own tab and not under operations. It's driving me crazy? What am I doing wrong??

It only seems works with apps on your home screen, not in the app drawer.

If you still don't see it, make sure that you are on the latest version of Go Launcher.

This guide is very old, and truthfully not useful anymore since the menu isn't structured that way anymore.

Now you were looking for these features right?
Quote:
xPopup quick menu-check to enable the popup menu when you long press an icon/widget. the menu lets you change icons, their displayed names, remove them from home screen, uninstall apps, and delete or resize widgets.
That popup you are getting with replace/rename/delete IS the quick popup menu.

1. Change icons: long press icon>replace. This will open another popup asking if you want to replace the icon with the default icon, a theme icon or a custom icon.
2. Change displayed names: long press icon>rename
3. Remove from homescreen: long press icon>delete
4. Uninstall apps: On latest GO Launcher version, long press icon>uninstall
5. Resize widgets: long press a widget>resize
6. Remove a widget: long press a widget>delete

The menu in preferences became redundant if they leave it there, because you can just long press everything and they have they're own quick pop up menu. Basically, you're already seeing the quick popup menu, but for some reason, I don't know why you did not understand that.

I am having a problem with one of the go lock screens. I am using the one where you can slide to open texts. But it opens the stock messaging app. I don't use that. I use go sms. Does anyone know how to make it open the go sms app instead?

Assuming you are using the default browser:
open a website>menu button>add bookmark>choose whatever selections you want for it>ok

Then go to homescreen>longpress empty space>select shortcuts on the menu>bookmarks>choose the bookmark you want to put on homescreen.

This works on ALL launchers.
