can I uninstall the app “Weather”? If not so, how can I remove the widget “WEATHER” in the left pane (below “APP SUGGESTIONS”, I dont know how to call this view correctly)? I have no need for the app, much less the widget.
No the widget can’t be removed, it’s hardcoded into Bliss. I’ve creates a version without it here pass bliss. The weather app can be uninstalled using this command:
pm uninstall -k --user 0 foundation.e.weather Or you can do it using TWRP and delete it.
Thank you for your fast and especially precise answer.
I will play it slowly and take some time to fully digest it. I understood that there is “Bliss” that is responsible for what I see when I switch on the phone, including the widget on the left view.
pm-call returned with an hard error. But before dig into that, I need to do some basics.
The app “Terminal” is not an option for a shell. I can neither go back within the line, nor go to previous command by typing arrow up. I guess what I need is a way to log into my phone from my linux desktop or, alternatively, install a reasonable terminal app.
O yes, you need to do
adb root and
adb shell first, then the pm command.
You can reset it by removing the location permission of BlissLauncher and clear cache of BlissLauncher.
It will look like this :
On my Galaxy S7 “herolte” I’ve removed the e.foundation Weather App as follows.
I’m using these Android SDK platform tools “ADB and Fastboot” on my Wind°ws host machine.
With the command prompt or Powershell (as administrator) I call ADB:
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]

Android Debug Bridge version 1.0.41
Installed as C:\ADB\adb.exe
daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
daemon started successfully

When this message is displayed, a confirmation must be made on your phone. Then again …
List of devices attached
Now there is a connection between the host machine and the Android phone
Now enter the following ADB commands:
pm list packages|grep -i weather
The result should be:
Now uninstall these four applications for user 0 (owner):
pm uninstall -k --user 0 org.lineageos.openweathermapprovider pm uninstall -k --user 0 foundation.e.weather pm uninstall -k --user 0 org.cyanogenmod.weatherservice pm uninstall -k --user 0 org.cyanogenmod.weather.provider
Now the /e/ weather app and icon is removed.
If the icon is still visible, you can→ clear BlissLauncher cache.
For further information only → disable apps
Thank you all. I understand that order to maintain the android device I need the tool
adb installed on my pc and thats the way to do cmdline maintenance of the android device. So I have familiarize myself with
Meanwhile I installed “termux” on my android device, I am pleased with that, but it is apparently not the mean to install or uninstall apps. It rather seems to provide and give access to some sort of linux subsystem on the device.
I go into
adb but not today. I come back to your answers soon.
After a little reading I could connect to the phone via usb and adb and follow your instructions. Everything went fine and now there is no weather app nor widget.
For some reason, the
pm uninstall did not work on first trial. I reconnected and then second try, this time stating with
foundation.e.weather, was successful. I couldn’t figure it out but I guess I did something wrong with the first trial.
The placeholder “WEATHER” is still there even though I cleared storage data and cache of “Bliss Launcher” and rebooted. But that’s ok. Tanks again, this was good start with adb.
Does the weather app get reinstalled during an OS update?
No, Apps uninstalled in this way will not be reinstalled by OS updates.
I tried this on my Galaxy S5, but there was no ‘pm’ command available so of course it didn’t work. I wouldn’t mind having the weather if it was accurate, but I suspect that OpenWeather is based in Europe and has that focus. Here in Western North America the forecasts it gives are pretty much useless.
When I click the link I get an error “This site can’t be reached”. Is the other version of Bliss still available?
I am just now trying to install this new launcher. Where are the instructions for installing it? I looked all over this forum and can’t find them.
