    I am a past user of Nova Launcher (Motorola Razr) and recently upgraded to the S5. Tried using the stock launcher and finally am ready to return to Nova. I installed the launcher onto the phone and noticed that I have a thick black vertical line on the "outside" of the last home screen. The line remains no matter what settings I change (continuous scroll, moving screens around, etc.). I even restarted the phone but the problem remains. Any ideas?

    Sorry, I wasn't too clear :
    The black bars are on the outside borders of all the screens as I scroll through, not just on one particular screen. For example, I have 4 screens and the border is in front of screen one and after screen four, but it shows up as part of the screen under the visible icons

    Try setting the margins to NONE in your settings. It should be under Nova Settings > Desktop > Width margin/Height margin. Give that a try.

    OK, problem looks solved. I was looking on the xda-developers forums under a wallpaper problems thread and there was a suggestion to reapply the wallpaper in order for it to scale to the launcher. BINGO!!

    Thanks to everyone who replied.

    I always using Trebuschet launcher but i'm not sure if you can manually and succesfully install the apk file on TW :(
    I'm on AOSP KK 4.4.4

    Why don't get custom recovery and flash an AOSP KK ROM ? Or maybe soon a Android L Rom ?
