? The only thing that I would to be done using multitouch is the font size zooming... for what I know you have a font size setting menu in KOReader as for Kobo reader

Currently KOReader input system understands only the multitouch protocol (that is different from the one used by single-touch hardware, even if a single finger is interacting with the hardware). If you're saying that we're capable of doing everything a gesture would do by using a menu, well that's right, but that also holds true for keyboard-based devices vs touch, no one really needed it! :P

(italian translation of my previous post): No Giorgio, sto dicendo che mi piacerebbe avere la possibilita' di zoomare il testo con due dita, e se KOReader potesse fare questo. Altrimenti non vedo l'utilita' di attivare il multitouch. Scusa ma il mio inglese fa schifo

secondo me si era capito - ma se ho ben capito il problema e' che koreader solo capisce multi touch, per cui bisogna "imbrogliarlo" per fargli credere che l'input kobo sia multitouch.

esatto back to english please!

the thing is, the closer we stay to the original codebase of koreader, the better chance we have to get official support in mainline.

I've proposed my changes to be included. The changes are related to the screen painting, we still have problems with the input part.

I've got a kernel module which is a modified version of the touchscreen driver that should output multitouch events; it loads without problems but gives no output, probably because it is clashing with the driver that is already present. I need some more work on this.

The first step is done:
https://github.com/koreader/koreader...f30d51ed489d1e

Support for painting the screen on kobos is in mainline koreader-base

About the kernel module to support multitouch, I really think what I have should work, but it doesn't. I'm a bit demoralized :P

I am beginning to think that we'd need a custom kernel to support multitouch, no luck with a single module. It should be fairly easy but I think it would not be optimal. I don't know if xor_ already has some code to add single touch support to koreader, but I'm going to tackle it in the next days.

Easier than I thought
I've got basic single-touch support. I still don't understand if swipes are correct or inverted. Once I get those sorted out, I'll try to get into mainline everything that is still missing.

Hi guys, again thank you for this great pdf-viewer! Now it's nearly the same pleasure to read a pdf as it is reading an ebook.

However, I'm wondering if there still exists an option to scroll within a pdf file, lets say from page 1 to page 500 without having to change the page 500 times in between?

When there is such an option, please would you be so kind to tell me where it is? I simply can't find it...

Keep this great work on!

It's still missing as a feature. Hopefully someone will implement it sooner or later!

Hi

What is the "plugin interface" ? I want to try this out but I ado not know how or where to install this plugin interface thing.

thanks

Code:
KPV=Plugin::executeSystemCmd("/mnt/onboard/.kobo/kindlepdfviewer/kpdf.sh /mnt/onboard")
- reboot the reader;
- Launch KPV from the plugin interface.

I've adjusted it in order to reboot if the power slider is used. The light still has to be already on when KPV is launched.

You'll have to use the last version I just uploaded!
