    Not sure if this has been answered or not. I did see someone mention it in another forum, but didnt see an answer.

    When other launchers are installed (launcher pro, ADW, GO, etc), I cannot go back to the "Home Launcher" (Blur). The only way I can switch back is by using Home Switcher. But even so, I cant make Blur my default launcher. When I clear defaults for a launcher and I press the home button, only the launchers I installed come up.

    Anyone else experiencing this??

    Yes, I ended up just removing both LP and Go. My Blur setup is great - I use Folder Organizer.

    Have you tried "home switcher" app in the market?

    Yea, I mentioned that the only way for me to go back to Blur was through Home Switcher. However I cant make Blur my default launcher. Once I press the home button, it goes back to the default launcher.

    Install Moto Home Fix from the Android Market, and you can select a default, or pick which one you want when pressing the home button.

    the ?? is how is launcher pro working on the DB.. I had it on my OG droid and just wanted something different for awhile.. So i have not tried it on my new DB.

    It works fine. I have been using LauncherPro primarily since I got the device.

    I am currently using Launcher Pro on my Bionic. Works just fine.

    Just a heads up. I found out the hard way that Moto Home Fix breaks the home key function when using the Blur launcher as your default. It will no longer snap back to the main screen, nor the flyout feature that shows all the home screens when you press home from the primary screen. If you uninstall it, the function returns.

    Not sure this would happen to everybody, but it certainly did for me.

    Yep, happened to me as well. Decided to uninstall LP+ for now so I can give Blur a fair trial. There are some things I like about it (am I the only one who actually likes the transitions?) but I sure do miss my LP+ widgets.

    Right there with ya. I'm doing the same thing right now. And I kind of like the transitions, too.
