Top four (or five) apps row

Tapping the launcher page triggers the top row of apps for only 0.5 second, which is ridiculously short. Any hack to increase this?

One second would be more comfortable, and short at the same time.

Sorry, I disagree, the current timing is just right for me.

I'm pretty certain someone patched this, but I cannot recall which patch/dev it was.

Okay, as I don't recall which dev patched this aspect of the launcher, I can tell you that if you navigate to /usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/layers/LauncherLayer.qml and scroll to the bottom of the page, you will see the following 2 lines;

hintHeight: Theme.iconSizeLauncher * 2 + (Screen.sizeCategory >= Screen.Large ? Theme.paddingLarge*4 : 0)

hintDuration: 600

First line: Change (play with) the figure after Theme.iconSizeLauncher to say 3.5 (this should show 2 rows instead of 1)

Second line: Change hintDuration to say 1000 (1 whole second!) or 3000 (3 seconds), your choice - save your changes and systemctl --user restart lipstick.service

Excellent with a big warning: if you have coderus' "Launcher combined" and/or fravaccaro's "No handle" patches (and maybe others), do not perform this hack.

If you do, those patches will be unapplied and will no longer be available for activation.

I made the mistake... Workaround: restore original LauncherLayer.qml then execute devel-su + pkcon install lipstick-jolla-home-qt5 --allow-reinstall

Then re-apply your favorite patches.
