Hyphenation in French?

First of all, thank you and big karma to ixtab!! I nearly shed tears of joy when I first saw my Kindle displaying correct justification and hyphenation.

I have managed to get hyphenation working perfectly in English and Dutch books. Unfortunately, I haven't managed to get it working in French yet.

Has anyone managed to get French hyphenation working?

My books are in mobi6 format (not KF8), and I have double-checked to be sure the language is identified correctly (French - Standard).

In the JBPatch log file, I do see the following lines:

I: Loading Hyphenations for language ID 1036 (fr)
java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java.lang.Character: method valueOf(C)Ljava/lang/Character; not found

Sorry, my Java skills are non-existent... If anyone has a clue how to get this working, I would be very appreciative!

Argh... this is a bug in the patch, thanks for pointing it out. The problem is that the (hyphenation) source is backported from Java 5, and the Character.valueOf() method doesn't exist in Java 1.4.2 (but Eclipse wouldn't tell me so because I had it configured wrong ).

Anyway, this should be fixed with version 2012-08-02. Please re-download the patch and let me know if it fixes the problem.

Wow, you're fast, ixtab! Hyphenation now works in French too.

Can't tell you how happy you've made me!

Report: Portuguese is perfectly hyphenized now with the patch correction!

(I thought it not working was some of my fault, because in English it was ok...)

There is a duplicated string "This value determines the left margin for PDF files." instead of [correct] "This value determines the right margin for PDF files." in localizable resources of JBPatch (ixtab-patch-margins).

Version 2.1.2

This version fixes most of the issues that have piled up so far. There have been a few cosmetic changes and a few bugfixes, and I've fixed the localization issue that eureka mentioned, and added 3 additional words to be translated

This version includes the latest version of the hyphenation patch. Note that because of internal changes, the reverse is also true: the latest hyphenation patch requires version 2.1.2!

Download, as always, in the first post. Be sure to read the upgrade notes.

So... this is possible after all... it's even included in the stock firmware, it's just completely disabled.

@ixtab, one patch after another, so you're unstoppable, eh? Maybe it's worth to take a second look at idea of representing /mnt/us sub-directories as collections in Home screen? It's possible to group cc.db entries located directly at /mnt/us under a "virtual" collection (the same type as Dictionaries or Images collection) and then just filter entries from cc.db by /mnt/us/<currently selected subpath>/ and display found entries.

Yes, I probably could do it by myself. But you've took my POC patch for cover view and evolve it to usable state. So, I hope...

@eureka: It's basically already done, except for the mnt/us/documents/ only, and only for files which are actually recognized by the Kindle in the collections DB. Anything else has too much potential of seriously screwing things up.

See the Collections Manager thread...

Collections Manager is a bit excessive for the sole purpose of browsing of directory structure and it also requires explicit synchronizing of directory structure into collections structure with updating of cc.db (isn't it?).

I'm talking about dynamic showing of "virtual" collections structure without any changing of cc.db. I.e. File browser collection which is implemented in Java like Dictionaries or Images collection.

(A small correction of myself. When I've talked about /mnt/us, I've meant /mnt/us/documents. Also listing of only files from cc.db is OK.)

Well, I understand that Collections Manager was the answer to similar request, but reviving of cover view patch was for me like "He's out of ideas, maybe I could incept another one"

@ixtab: All version numbers (log, ui, device) after the updrade still show 2.1.1. Did the update not work, or did you forget to change them?

Good catch!

The version number is present in 4 different places... and I updated all of them, except for the most important one

You can see that it actually is 2.1.2 by long-clicking on the entry in the home screen to show the details. Anyway, I attached the fixed file now. Thanks for the hint!

Installed the fixed version. Had to do that before going to sleep.
Thank you as always.
