To prevent users from unintentionally destroying core functionalities of their phone, I guess.
This has nothing to do with the App.
/e/'s default launcher Bliss considers the Widget important, apparently. The Android way of showing your disapproval of this is to simply install a different launcher which handles things the way you want. Just search the forum for “launcher”.
First of all, thanks for your answer: it was very helpful to me.
I understand what you mean, but I do not completely agree with this point: select an application from the list of installed ones and tap “uninstall” button: this is not subjective, this is certainly easy
Thank you very much. I was able to do all the steps.
Yes, this is very reasonable. Doubt remains about non-core applications, such as weather feature.
I do not disapprove of anything. I am always sincerely grateful for the work done by all free software developers. I asked the question to see if there are any reasons that aren’t entirely obvious at first glance. And for now I remain with my doubt
Are the default widgets hardcoded into the Bliss launcher? (I removed the weather app but the widget is still there …)
It did not work after downloading and extracting the zip file. I then searched for “ADB Linux platform-tools” (I use LinuxMint) and found the following:
In the terminal: sudo apt-get install android-tools-adb adb start-server
Hi, and thanks so much for your detailed and very helpful instructions AnotherElk!
I’m quite new to all of this, so I wasn’t able to get behind the following issue: I closely followed your steps (Android debugging, connecting my phone to my computer via USB, downloaded the Android SDK platform tools, navigated to the download folder), but when I entered “adb devices”, the reaction was “command not found”. I tried to find a solution for it online, but got lost. So I thought mabye some of you guys can help me
(I usw a Fairphone 3+ and a Macbook in case that’s relevant)
The downloaded file is a ZIP archive. You need to extract (= unzip) the contents first, and in the folder to where you do that you will then find (and need to execute) the adb command.
I don’t have a Mac, so I don’t know the standard procedure for extracting a ZIP file on macOS, but as every OS tends to offer something to do this job by default I believe macOS shouldn’t be any different.
I had a hard time to find the words to describe you my problem, as I didn’t undestand it myself haha. But I managed to find a solution online.
So in case someone else also just gets command not found over and over again: this did it for me.
I want to uninstall exposure notifications but I don’t know how. Because in /e/ store we can’t uninstall apps. I have listed with adb all packages and I didn’t find the exposure notification package name
