Anbox apps listed in the launch screen - mark1250 - 03-17-2021

Is there a way to stop the apps that are installed in anbox from showing up in the app launcher screen? I've deleted the .desktop files from /home/mobian/.local/share/applications/anbox directory, but they are eventually recreated.

It's confusing to have 2 Settings apps.

Thanks.

Mark

you could use the purism anbox fork which has a patch to disable it, or just use their patch on the debian version. both involve recompiling anbox.

or if you want to trust a stranger on the internet, heres a deb or the debian version with that patch applied https://tvall43.ddns.net/stuffs/anbox_0.0~git20210106-2_arm64.deb
