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.

A bit of background knowledge about the above...

The infrastructure that supports dynamic libraries on Windows (*.dll) and Linux (*.so) is different.

The Windows system __will__ look in the same directory as the executable was loaded from before looking in system defined places.
So under Windows, the "copying it into the directory right next to the cr3 executable" would be expected to solve this "not found" error.

The Linux (any *nix) system looks in a list of locations (never including the locations that executables are kept for security reasons).
That list is maintained at the "end user" level (or by the installation application used by the "end user").

That list is /etc/ld.so.conf
Which in turn may "include" all the configuration files in a directory, typically /etc/ld.so.conf.d/*.conf

The developer's choices when installing a new dynamic library -
put it in one of the directories already listed in one of the config lists; or
add the directory where it was put to the config list(s).

The ld.so loader gets its information from a binary cache of the list information, so ...
After the above choice/action is taken - the cache must be updated.
run: ldconfig command as user 'root'.
You may have to make the trusted directories read/write (mntroot rw) for the ldconfig command to complete depending on the options it is run with.

Ref:
man ldconfig
or google: man ldconfig

These requirements of the dynamic library loader are usually taken care of by the appliction's installer.

I have a strange problem, my coolreader now displays books at 90 degrees to the kindle orientation! So if the kindle is in portrait mode and I start coolreader then it displays in landscape, and vise versa. The funny thing is that the menu and file browser all work correctly, it's just that once any book text is displayed the orientation is rotated. I tried to find if there is a display orientation option without success. Can anyone help?

New version with high contrast on K4NT

As you know, cr3 contrast on K4NT was very poor because of the old, K3 specific Qt graphics driver. It's no longer the case with the new driver that was provided today by andy wooden. Contrast on K4NT is on par with K3 now!

Download CR3 with fixed contrast (3.0.57-15).

interesting, thanks for sharing. is it the same version of cr3 and just an updated qtkindle, or is cr3 updated too? maybe the new qtkindle might benefit other apps on k4 too.

cr3 has the most recent crengine from the git master branch. The main difference is qtkindle graphics driver, other apps using it should benefit as well.
