Hey. No changes to init.py or lits_page.py or anything really in stock “launcher” directory. All I needed to modify outside the launcher’s own folder was ~/.bashrc
Mylauncher is standalone and can be completely separate to the launcher, so I’d say you’re good to go with applying your modifications.
What connects the two for me mostly is that I use launcher’s menu folders to link them in mylauncher, so I rely on launcher’s content, but it’s up to you how you use having separation. You can even fully replace original launcher with my launcher, just copy your stuff over instead of linking anything from launcher.
If it comes to update, this just calls git pull and makes hard reset on mylauncher folder, so you need to check out the folder first for this option to even appear for you.
Generic options work exactly as they used to, funny enough if you follow my advice on populating the folders, you’ll end up with an option to update launcher from my launcher, so no changes there either.
So the update mechanism is neither removed nor reimplemented. Mylauncher currently just uses git for updates. For now.
The biggest advantage of “mylauncher” is separation of user menus. I’d say give it a go, it looks that it should be safe for your setup.
Making a backup is always advisable though!
On your last question, this sounds interesting and I want to hear more, but not here and not now as it’s past 3AM over here. Will be back here tomorrow, surely!
But yeah, why not. Make sure to QA it well first!
And yes, I had different link, but these are the same icons.
P. P. S
I’m so rude. Thank you for a very nice feedback!

Back after a good sleep Sure, can confirm again, feel free to use whatever you need from my launcher. I hope you find my improvements worthy. Keep me updated on this one please. Thanks!
