Installed Fairphone Open 17.06.4 and only got a Home panel

Hi there,
after having technical problems with my Fairphone 2 my new (refurbished) phone arrived today…
As I was already using Fairphone Open in the past, I started this evening with installing the new Fairphone Open 17.06.4. The installation went well but now I’m kind of confused as I only got a Home panel - the two other panels for Recent Contacts and Recent Apps you could navigate to by swiping left or right are missing…
Searching the forum doesn’t bring me any results, so I just wanted to ask if anyone else got this problem or if this is just normal with the new Open OS?

Those were widgets exclusive to Fairphone OS Android 5.
You can get them back (community developed versions) from F-Droid; more info here:

To create a new home panel simply long tap on a free space (or the dots that indicate which screen you are on) and drag a widget to the right side of the screen.

…thanks a lot for the fast answers - so everything seems fine and I can continue with the installation of my new phone :slight_smile: - Great forum!
