Device: Kindle Keyboard 3g
Before I ask my question I would like it to be known I worked very hard on this problem, searched the board, and google, and was still unable to resolve my issue.

I have a Kindle Keyboard 3g with the following installed and working:
jailbreak: kindle-jailbreak-0.10.N.zip
screensaver hack: kindle-ss-0.25.N.zip
usbnetwork: kindle-usbnetwork-0.35.N.zip
launchpad: lpad-pkg-001c.zip

I attempted to install CoolReader3 from both the links supplied in post #1. I did the keyboard shortcut Shift + C + R, and nothing happend... So next I sshed into my Kindle and tried to launch it from there or see if it was one of the running processes (which it wasn't). When I tried to launch it manually I recieve the following error:

[root@kindle cr3]# ./cr3
./cr3: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I checked to make sure that file (libjpeg.so.8) was present and it was, I even tried copying it into the directory right next to the cr3 executable, but to no avail. If anyone has any tips or suggestions or has expirience with this problem I would greatly appreciate any advice. Thank you.

**Update**
Of course right after I make this post I figured out the problem, although I find it strange that nothing was mentioned in the installation instructions. I copied the files from /cr3/lib/ to /qtkindle/lib/. Maybe someone should update the installation instructions for people who might encounter the same problem.
