Then after about 20 sec I get a message "Could not create temporary file in /tmp" and nothing is installed.

This does not depend whether exrernal card is present or not, or if PB is connected to PC or not. I suppose that by '/tmp' it means a temp directory on internal (not visible) drive with Linux OS.

Any idea what could be the issue ? Thx

This looks like a permissions problem. I can think of a few ways in which this can happen: 1) /tmp is a directory inside the read-only root filesystem, so can't be written to at all by anybody, 2) /tmp is a symlink to /var/tmp (as it should be), but the permissions on /var/tmp are wrong so that the user can't write to it, 3) /tmp is a broken symlink that points to a non-existent directory. I use the 2.0.3 NA firmware which supposedly doesn't have this problem, so I can't check it myself. Someone running the EUR or CIS firmware versions could run the "df", "ls -l /" and "ls -l /var" commands in the poterm application that LoneTech provided recently to see if any of these is the case. Without root capabilities you won't be able to fix the problem, but at least your curiosity might be satisfied while waiting for the new firmware .

I have a 902, and I'm not sure that the 2.0.4 firmware was meant for that device. The firmware is probably not on the English site because the 903 isn't available in our market yet. So, you'll have to rely on a Unix-savvy person in Europe to check out your firmware version.

I see, well being computer illiterate I have no idea whether the firmware for 903 would also go on the 902, maybe not, as I think the hardware is also different.
As for the oddity of not having the firmware on the English version of the page, well it is indeed strange as they sell all over Europe (the reason why they have a page in English), including the UK, not to mention the fact that they do intervene on this English speaking pocketbook forum, too

talking menu

Hello everybody,

i'v installed the Czech tts and it works fine. A just want to ask if there is any method how to make PocketBook to talk in menu? So he could read me what i have in library, entries in main menu, settings and so on.

Do you know if this is possible?

Thx

Lightbulb Finding TTS

My PB 903 FW 2.1.2 with the "fast graphic driver" did not find any TTS-File (pbi) automatically - not in /root, not in /applications.

The solution: Navigate to Fotos, go back to root, select and install.
In this folder is no limitation regarding the filetype.

Regards,
Uthruban
