Posted October 25, 2010 at 06:00 pm by orb3000
XDA member ClassicalGas presents a great tutorial to use scrolling wall paper with 6 home screens for Launcher Pro on your Android device. Now, you can jump between home screens using LPP Shortcuts creating a different way to manage your device. The developer included a full how to guide including: Tutorial Files, Launcher Pro shortcuts, simple template, scrolling wallpapers, .psd files and SMS unread mod for mention some features.
Working for 800*480 resolution devices.

Scrolling Wallpaper Dock
This is a repost from here as it is not HTC Desire specific. Everything should work on any phone with 800*480 resolution.
I have been experimenting with what I believe to be a unique use for the scrolling wallpaper. If using LP with 6 homescreens your wallpaper scrolls exactly one dock icon (1/5th of the screen).
I started playing around with using this as a screen indicator and dock icons to jump between homescreens using LPP Shortcuts. Shortcuts to all 6 screens are attached. I found you could effectively use the scrolling effect of the wallpaper in place of a screen indicator (although it goes the wrong way).
It takes a bit of playing around with the wallpaper to get it 100%. I’ve included a .PSD of one of my files, however the others aren’t really in an up-loadable state. I’ve included all the scrollable wallpapers I’ve made as well.
I hope you get some fun out of this – If you do make something interesting and unique please post here to share it with everyone else!
