Thank you for your answers!

Which language?

It may be as simple as just selecting it. The Kindles are localized.

You might want to follow the discussion here:

Which seems to be a similar problem report.

Thanks both of you the answers! I did not know, that these ss hack just for non-special offer users, maybe my bad that not read it!
Actually this offers don't care to much..the first priority for me to make somehow hungarian language

You just have to reverse the process of renaming (mv to new name) after deleting the new link you created.

The process is indexed in our index system but I will save you the clicks (may bill you for them anyway of course):

So I have a K2i but wanted to replace the main font with the latest-and-greatest 5.40 generation from the k3+ updates.

Steps: Installed font hack.

Copied in fonts using these naming conventions.
(old) Helvetica* -> Sans*
(new) Caecilia_LT (not Cond) -> Serif*
(old) Kindle_Blackbox* -> Mono*

Restart. Success, I'm now on the latest version. Not that I can tell any real difference.

Hello!

K4 is not localized to Hungarian as I know. If you have any question, would be easier for you in my Hungarian blog.

After installing Kindle 3.4 (more than a week ago), my Kindle has become very sluggish. There is sometimes big lag between pushing a page turn button and the actual page turn, and even moving the cursor takes much more time. I do not have more than 50 books on my device, and I have verified indexing. After installing 3.4 I updated NiLuJe's jailbreak and font and screensaver hacks. I can't imagine that those things could have any affect on processor speed. I do have a launchpad and kindlepdfviewer installed. Also, I don't see how these could slow anything down.

I'm not the only one who has noticed this. I found it on the Amazon.com Kindle blog. I'm just checking to see if any of the hacks here could affect the new firmware.

Sometimes stuff is slow for me, but that only happened when i replaced all the menu fonts and some book fonts with SourceSans Pro. Have you changed the fonts in linkfonts/fonts ?

Take them all out, then report back on if it made a difference.
If it did, put them back in, one at a time (with never changing the books on the kindle).

Yes. I have Georgia 2 fonts. I really like them!

Yeah, I guess I should do that. Thanks. I'll do it this evening and report back.

@montalex: Theoretically, yes, the fonts hack might be causing some slowdowns (as well as possibly some speedups, it goes both ways ).

Try using another font, and/or switching to one of the FT overrides if it's not already the case (bci & bci_new being the one closer to the default FW 3.x rendering).

FWIW, I'm not seeing anything overly awful on my own device (and it's sitting at > 1k2 items, with at least a third of that being collections), but then I'm mostly using my Touch these days, so YMMV .

You might also want to take a look at top/htop over SSH, see if something's not stuck on a loop in the background.

Hey, I put the font hack on my K4, but I want it to use the font Dyslexie, just in the book-reading part (at the least and most importantly there)
How do I make it so the device will use it? I have this font and use it on my computer a lot. Sorry if dumb.

Well, the slowness has nothing to do with any hacks or fonts. I uninstalled and reinstalled everything, including launchpad and kindlepdfreader. No change. Still a bit laggy.

Really, it is minor. I can live with it to get to read AZW3 with page numbers, etc.
