Trebuchet as default launcher

Hello Bliss is really cool, but i want to use trebuchet as the default launcher
how can i do it?


I tried to install Trebuchet Lauchner as well. The new versions failed, but older ones worked for me. You may download it e.g. here: Trebuchet APKs - APKMirror
In Settings > Apps > Standard-Apps> you got to change the start-app to Trebuchet. In the same way you may go back to bliss again.

but /e/ has trebuched

Yes, I think Bliss includes Trebuchet. Maybe that’s why the new versions do not work.

eeeeh, but i don’t want to use bliss

I just tried the version for Android 9+ on my S7 with unofficial /e/OS (Pie), and it doesn’t work (repetitive crash).

When I had a S2 running CyonogenMOD, I was using Trebuchet and since then I have never found a better launcher.

Maybe Bliss is based on it, but at that time it was so different.

you should try Lineage

try lawnchair from f-droid v11

Indeed that’s the one I use, the best I have found.

yeah but then i would have 3 launchers installed on my phone
my idea was to remove bliss and only use trebuchet

Hi, Try Omega Launcher. It works.

Omega Launcher is the fork of Lawnchair

Even installing and using another one, you cannot uninstall BlissLauncher

uninstall bliss = dead os

It seems really nice, thanks!

Not if you install another launcher (e.g OpenLauncher, Lawnchair, Omega) before you uninstall Bliss. See this post for details of how to uninstall Bliss (or any other system app)

Trebuchet is already present in /e/OS (as a system app), but cannot be started in the UI. But you can try uninstalling trebuchet as described in that post (its id is, then install it as a user app.

Good luck


This is Trebuchet version in /e/OS:

In the Settings I can choose which start app to use. I didn’t remove Bliss Launcher so I could go back if I would like to.

There are much more good launchers, for example ZIM-Launcher from F-Droid etc. It’s a matter of taste. You may try different ones and then choose the one you like the most.

I think it’s no problem to have more than one launcher installed. They only use about 2-5 MB of storage each.

i think its a problem to have an app that i wont use at all
not the fact the it only uses 2 BM

Extremely late but im gonna say this anyways as a FYI for anyone who stumbles apon this. The trebuchet launcher does still exist in /e/os today. You just can’t select it as the default launcher nor open it normally. It’s hidden like the file manager usually is on stock android
