Hi Castern,

Thanks for the detailed reply, In Current Tizen images(ivi/common), 
elementary profile config(config/profile.cfg) set to 'standard', which 
is contrast to ELM_PROFILE environment, by changing this to 'mobile' 
profile using 'elementary_config' tool, fixed the dubs launcher issue.

By the way can you point the contact who can fix this configuration.
