I am using Nova Launcher as my home screen and with the April update to One UI 2.1 on my ATT Note 10+ I have lost the ability to scroll my home screen wallpaper. I know the default Samsung launcher could not scroll, but at least the 3rd party launchers worked before. Please fix and/or change whatever was done to prevent them from working too.

Re: Scrolling Wallpaper Broken in 3rd Party Launchers with One UI 2.1

 

Any updates from Samsung devs on this issue? or do we have to keep posting complaints.

I spent ages switching between launchers (nova and microsoft) resetting, clearing caches, restarting and looking for 3rd party apps to get this function back.... latest firmware updates etc.... only to find its a bug or a 'feature removal' from samsung.

 

i'm due an upgrade in september, i would like to keep my incremental samsung hardware updates going....but....its just the little things that always get me looking t competitors.

samsung stopped this feature, and disallowed 3rd theme apps like Nova launcher to have this feature on Galaxy phones.

Maybe you could install Nova and confirm for everyone else that scrolling works with One UI 2.0 and then you can check again once you get the update? Just to confirm what I have noticed, please.

Just got my VZ Note 10+ and straight away installed all the updates (nine in all) before I did anything else.  I gave One UI 2.1 a day, and while it really is a big improvent over Touchwiz (starting with the name), I still went back to Nova.  I'm glad to hear scrolling worked at one point, hopefully Samsung will fix it.

Not to insult your intelligence, but: have you checked to make sure the scroll setting is on in Nova?

Ha! No insult taken, I'm sure plenty of people won't check the setting. Yes I have checked. Also, same result in Action Launcher. Set the app for scrolling wallpaper, but no scrolling anymore.

I have the same issue - the wallpaper scrolling is not working though its checked in Nova (Prime).

 

And as mentioned below in another post, though not related to Nova or wallpaper, the fingerprint sensor is awful. Its only succesful maybe 20~25% of the time, and yesm I played with the screen sensitiovity setting and it makes no difference. As comnpared to an S7 which was 99% accurate, this is a real setback.

I just purchased a new Galaxy Note 10 + and was so dissapointed that my classic wallpaper won't scroll.  Please, Samsung, fix this as soon as possible.  I'm using the Nova Launcher too, so I guess I'll have to wait for them to do an update as well, unless you fix what you broke and it will automatically fix the issue in the other launchers.  I never expected something a standard as this to be nonfunctional.  Yeash.
