After I made Nova Launcher the default launcher on his Samsung phone, my dad complains the 7-day Weather forecast is gone from his screen. The built-in Weather app and Weather Forecast Service (from Samsung) are still present in Settings->Apps, but the former does not show up as an installed app in the App Drawer in Nova Launcher, nor does either appear as available widget to Nova Launcher. This prompted me to look at my own phone, and it has the same problem, except I had not noticed it because I have several third-party weather apps in use. I suspect other built-in apps/widgets may be in the same boat. It seems some F-Droid apps also do not show up in Nova Launcher.I don't want to switch back to the vendor-supplied home screen/launcher app. Is there a fix for such issues with Nova Launcher?
Another issue with Nova Launcher my dad noticed is various app icons no longer get badged with a number when app status changes. Does this have to do with enabling "Adaptive icons (Use Orea styled icons)", or another setting such as "Normaliz icon size"?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
