I've hacked my kobo with build 1, is it necessary to upgrade to build 4?

The 2nd build fixed this bug, the 4th moved the log to the flash partition.

restart the kobo and execute the test entry, mount the kobo, search for .kobo/mydebug.log and post here its contents?

@yoq: ok, let me know if I have understood: you are dynamically linking a C library to nickel bin. The library contains a class, which constructor is automatically invoked. The constructor creates the FIFO. Since this is done at startup, any echo will be directed to the FIFO? Right?

Thank you for the C for dummies lesson
Hi Lucas,

I did what you asked me.
The only change in the /etc/init.d/rcS file is at line 132.
When plugin is installed :
LD_PRELOAD=/mnt/onboard/.kobo/screenInv.so /usr/local/Kobo/nickel -qws &
After uninstall :
/usr/local/Kobo/nickel -qws &

I did this with screenInv_build4.zip version of the plugin.
I uninstalled with the uninstaller provided in this package.

I confirm the uninstaller doesn't remove any file in the .kobo directory. I deleted them manually.

The real bug is that serial informations (collection name and number prompt under the name of the book in the library) are no more updated when the plugin is installed.

For information :
Kobo firmware : 2.5.1
KoboTweaks plugin : Last version.
Calibre 0.9.29
Calibre plugin epub => kepub : 1.3.0 (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...=211135&page=7)

I'd find very useful if you add the ability to toggle night mode when you click the light button, since I use it only when the environment is dark. I think it can be done using acpid, but I don't know exactly how.

Mingyars problem with calibre turned out to be that when using usb, /mnt/onboard must not be used. To fix this, screenInv.so was moved to /root. I also changed the logging system to have no open files on the onboard sd. However I disabled logging for normal use, but you can still build a version that logs with "make debug".

+ New Feature, at the request of Lucas Malor:
Hold the Light-button for two seconds to toggle Night-Mode.
The same should happen when you press the HOME button on a Kobo Touch.

Upgrading is highly recommended, an old version + calibre could corrupt your database.

To upgrade, copy KoboRoot.tgz from old_uninstaller to your .kobo folder.
Reboot, the install the new version with KoboRoot.tgz from the installer folder.
Delete screenInv.so from your .kobo directory, it's no longer needed.

Man, you're my Night God

PS: I think it's better to move to /usr/local any other plugin too. There's a little probability to have Launcher or KOReader opened when you use the flash partition, but it's better to be cautious.

Yoq,

Thanks for the fix and the light switch integration.

Not to sound ungrateful, but is anyone else seeing remnants of the previous page of text showing through the black background?

Yes, I think this is the reason why eink devices doesn't have a night mode. Personally I don't care.

I can't see it on mine - though in the end if I am reading in bad light the "day" mode seems to be working better for me. With a lamp on, though, I get more contrast with the night mode - of course my Mini has no illumination of its own.

I can see them very well if I open/close drop-down menus on Home. The more the open/close, the more the ghosts. I can see them in "normal mode" too, but with night mode is more evident.

Uh, Oh, you can see ghosts! Watch out, Bruce Willis will be stopping by to check on you next... ;p

Well, not thrilled about the ghosting, but happy it's not just me. Mostly, because it usually is, for some reason. Oddly, even with refresh set to six, I never see ghosting in normal mode. I ain't ' fraid a no ghosts.
