How to change the Launcher?

I am a new user to /e/ and I do not get the thinking behind Bliss simulating apple. It seems a little buggy and it has a bunch of apps I will never use but have to sift through for the 3 or 4 apps I need.

I’d like to go to something more like Trebuchet, Total or stock-looking Android where I can Remove apps. I have read the wiki but cannot find how to make changes to the Launcher screens other than Adding more stuff.

Is there a sequence to removing Bliss and installing another Launcher?

How would I do this?


To install another launcher;

Find your launcher of choice in the App/Aurora/F-Droid stores.
Install it, then press the home button.

This will open a dialogue where you can select your new launcher
Press home again and you can set it as default.

Bliss will remain but won’t be used.


Ahh, great thanks. I was wondering how to prevent them both trying to be the Launcher at the same time.

Omega launcher is kind of an improved version of Trebuchet and can be got from F-droid if you first add the IzzyOnDroid Repo to F-droid by scanning the QR code and open the link in F-droid.

Trebuchet can be had from XDA as an apk (mediafire download)

Thanks, but I only download from well known and trusted sources. I have never used Mediafire. If it was on F-Droid I’d be OK with it. Same for the “izzy” thing, but thanks anyway.

I’m at this pain point too. I can’t find “Trebuchet” or f-droid from either the Apps app or from Aurora. So far everything I’ve tried to do has turned into a series of recursive rabbit holes. If anyone sees fit to help… I’d definitely be grateful.

F-Droid can be downloaded and then installed from its website

Trebuchet is the default launcher of LineageOS, available here for installation on other Custom ROMs … … confirmed working on Android 10, too, according to

Thank you for taking the time to set me back on the path @AnotherElk!

This is an old post, but just wanted to inform that Simple Launcher (from F-Droid) works great for my usage.
