[Device Plugin] Kobo Touch Extended Driver

THIS PLUGIN IS BEING INTERMITTENTLY DEVELOPED! FEATURE REQUESTS AND BUG REPORTS MAY TAKE A FEW DAYS TO BE REPLIED TO.

This plugin enables some additional features for the Kobo Touch, Glo, Mini, Aura HD, and Aura. ePub books processed with this plugin will be rendered using Kobo's internal kepub renderer instead of the standard ePub renderer.

The main benefits of using the kepub renderer (which some may prefer not to have) are:
  • Page numbers show the number of page turns remaining in the current chapter instead of the estimated number of pages for the entire book.
    • If you don't want this, there is an option in the driver settings to force full-book page numbers.
  • Reading statistics (time left in this chapter, time for the next chapter, time to complete the book)
  • The book title is shown at the top of each page.
  • The chapter title, if any, is shown at the bottom of each page with the page numbers.

You are encouraged to install these two plugins as well, to ensure KePub metadata is correctly processed when sending to your Kobo device:
Usage

To use this plugin after installing:
  • Connect your Kobo Touch/Glo/Mini device and wait for it to be detected by calibre
  • Select the book(s) you want to send to your device.
  • Click the Send to device button.

Special Notes
  • This plugin requires calibre 1.3.0 or later.
  • It is recommended that you disable the built-in KoboTouch driver (but not the built-in Kobo driver) while this plugin is installed. On rare occasions, calibre may select the built-in KoboTouch driver instead of this plugin.
  • This device plugin enables access to Kobo features that are written with the expectation that only unmodified Kobo-purchased books will be used.
  • When configuring the plugin, it is not necessary to include the '.kepub' portion of the file name; the plugin will add that automatically.
  • Modified ePub books are not saved to your calibre library in their kepub form; the kepub is only sent to your device, your copy in calibre is never modified.

Installation Directions

Open Preferences -> Plugins -> Get new plugins and install the 'Kobo Touch Extended' plugin. You may also download the attached zip file and install the plugin manually, then restart calibre as described in the Introduction to Plugins thread.

Known Issues

Not everything works perfectly all the time. Here are some of the issues I know about that are likely to stick around for a while.

Spoiler:
  • When using Kobo firmware 2.9.0 or later, sideloaded KePub files do not display in-book statistics.
  • If you have previously installed this plugin in calibre 0.9.18 or earlier, then you upgrade to calibre 0.9.19 or later and can't update the plugin, you must manually remove the plugin ZIP file:
    • Open the calibre plugin directory.
      • Don't know where this is? Before you close calibre, open calibre's preferences, choose Miscellaneous, and click the Open calibre configuration directory button. The plugin directory is in there.
    • Delete the file named KoboTouchExtended.zip.

    Start calibre and re-install the plugin.
  • If you get an error similar to the following:

    Code:
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    
    File "site-packages\calibre\gui2\preferences\plugins.py", line 310, in add_plugin
    
    File "site-packages\calibre\customize\ui.py", line 361, in add_plugin
    
    File "site-packages\calibre\customize\ui.py", line 53, in load_plugin
    
    File "site-packages\calibre\customize\zipplugin.py", line 169, in load
    
    File "importlib__init__.py", line 37, in import_module
    
    File "site-packages\calibre\customize\zipplugin.py", line 147, in load_module
    
    File "calibre_plugins.kobotouch_extended.__init__", line 4
    
    ^
    
    SyntaxError: invalid syntax
    The solution is to read the README file from top to bottom
  • In some circumstances people have reported that while reading a book uploaded with this plugin they suddenly realize that a large amount of time (two hours or more) has passed without their awareness of the passage of time. The only known solution is to finish reading your current book. Voracious readers tend to report this issue more frequently. Please note, sleep is only a temporary resolution.



Contributing

Decided you want to contribute to the development of this plugin? Awesome! If you want to contribute to the development of this plugin, you have many options:
  • Contribute code, whether for existing bug reports, for new bugs that you found, or for new features that you really want to see implemented. To contribute code, you may fork the repository and send a GitHub pull request, or you may send me a PM here with a git patch file. A tutorial on creating a git patch can be found at http://ariejan.net/2009/10/26/how-to...atch-with-git/
  • Submit bug reports on Launchpad. Launchpad bug reports are my to-do list for this plugin; any requests anywhere else are likely to get missed and forgotten. Although I'm happy to discuss the plugin here, I may still ask you to create a bug report; this is so I actually remember to investigate your request!
  • Test pre-released code from GitHub. Between releases, new code is committed to the GitHub repository and may be installed using directions provided in the README file. Based on your testing, you may submit bug reports, provide feedback, think of new feature requests, or just generally enjoy early access (and not necessarily stable code!) to upcoming versions of the plugin.
  • Translate the plugin on the plugin's Launchpad Translations page.

Submitting Bugs

Found an issue? Have a new feature request? Great, I want to hear from you! Go to the Launchpad issue tracker and submit a new bug report or click the "This bug affects me" link on an existing bug report. To save us all time, please make sure to include the following details:
  • What version of calibre are you running? If this is not the latest version, you will likely be asked to upgrade and confirm that the bug still exists.
  • What version of the plugin are you using? If this is not the latest version, you will likely be asked to upgrade and confirm that the bug still exists.
  • What Kobo device you're using and what firmware version
    • To get the Kobo firmware version, from the Settings page choose Device Information and look for the line beginning with Software Version about two-thirds of the way down the page.
  • For issues processing books, whether or not you are able to send me a book that demonstrates the problem. Please be aware of the directions provided when submitting a new bug which detail how to include a book and what bug options to set.
  • The calibre debug log showing the issue, where applicable
    • To get the calibre debug log, select Preferences -> Restart in debug mode and reproduce the issue. The calibre debug log will be displayed shortly after closing calibre.

Although I'm generally perfectly happy to discuss possible issues here, any issues sent to me through any means other than the Launchpad bug tracker (including email, PM, etc.) may be silently ignored. This is not because I don't care! It's because I have a terrible memory, the Launchpad issue tracker is my "to-do list" for this plugin, and there's been instances where I've seen a post or PM here and promptly forgotten all about it until I happened to stumble across the post again later. If you aren't sure if you have an issue, feel free to post here and we can work together to decide if you need to make a new Launchpad issue or not. If you are sure you have an issue, or if you have an error or exception from calibre, post a new issue. It isn't necessary to post here when you make a new issue, I get notified of all new bugs and I check the list regularly. The worst that could possibly happen on Launchpad is the same that could happen here: I'll tell you that it's not a bug and you'll have the opportunity to convince me otherwise!

thanks. When using this plugin, is the title bar displayed when reading, as usual with kepubs but not with epubs?

The title bar is another kepub feature. I don't believe I can disable it.

So just out of curiosity, Calibre plugins are entirely python-based (just making sure I'm not missing anything)? If so I could definitely contribute code from time to time. Seems like container.py is the part Calibre talks to and driver.py does the heavy lifting?

The plugin is great; so far I've had no troubles with annotations or bookmarks, but that's probably just as likely to be luck of the draw with my .epub structures. Also, thanks for so quickly addressing the issue with car/cbz files.

Yes, so far as I'm aware, plugins are purely Python. For me, container.py is the interface to the unpacked ePub structure, and it's where I do most of the book modification work, and driver.py does the rest of the heavy lifting. There is some modification (hyphenation mostly) outside container.py but I plan to work on moving that around later.

How do I disable the main Kobo driver when I am installing this plugin?

Calibre tells me it cannot be disabled.

Am I selecting the correct one to disable?

Extended plugin question

Okay, so I've downloaded the kobo extended plugin. How do I use it? Will the resulting kepubs say kepub? Will I be able to use the kepub on my iPad/iPhone?

First, make sure you don't have your Kobo device plugged in while you're doing this.

Then, in calibre open Preferences -> Plugins and look under the Device Interface Plugins list for Kobo Reader Device Interface and KoboTouch. For each one, select it and click the Enable/Disable plugin button. As long as your device isn't plugged in, they should be disabled.

To use the plugin, you just send books to your Kobo device.

On the Kobo device, yes the modified books are identified as KOBO EPUB while unmodified ePub files are identified as EPUB. If you mean in calibre, then no they aren't identified in any way because the kepub version is never saved to your calibre library.

I don't know if you can use the generated kepubs on your iOS app. I don't see why not, but it's not something that I've tested. If you would like to try it and report back on how it worked, there may be other people who would also like to know.

Thanks! I disabled the other Kobo plugins. Now all I need is for my Aura to arrive and I'm ready to side load!

Sorry, you aren't ready. The drivers don't support the Aura HD yet. The next calibre release should include the changes needed.

This plugin explicitly only supports the Kobo Touch, Kobo Glo, and Kobo Mini. I don't have an Aura to test with so any updates to my plugin will have to be done by someone else with an Aura, or someone will have to send me an Aura.

EDIT: And by "explicitly only supports", I mean that this plugin will completely fail to recognize any other devices. Once the mainline Kobo driver includes Aura support, you will have to use the mainline driver and not my plugin to use calibre to send books over.

Thank you for these instructions. I have now got it to work.

I am very pleased that the problematic fonts (Nickel etc) are now working as they should and not showing italics as regular bold.

I am also pleased that my own installed fonts are showing their true weight instead of appearing anaemic and thin. The Advanced option is not available but it's no matter because my own fonts display their weight and I can still adjust font-size, line spaces and margins.

I'm not sure about the page numbers only showing number of pages left in a chapter but I can live with this because of the other advantages. I love that the title of the book is displayed in the header.

So one very happy customer here, Thank you.

Hello jgoguen,

Does the plugin work with the new kobo driver of Calibre 0.9.28 ?

What's new for 0.9.28 :
Kobo driver: Add support for the new Kobo Aura HD and firmware version 2.5.0

Thanks

Thank you for this. I see looking at Calibre, I have Kobo Reader Device Interface and KoboTouch plugins. Should I be disabling both of those?
