Only thing i noticed was that if you have the ebooks a few folders deep on the gdrive/mini the covers didnt show in sleep mode. show up fine in the library.

I just followed this guide https://github.com/softapalvelin/kob...c/wiki/install
thanks for the update - last time I tried, it did not work, will try this tonight if I manage!

ok, I tried it, but while this time it seems to work (in the sense that it created the needed directories in Gdrive), it seems to be screwing up the syncing of books - and in addition, I cannot logout from the ereader. Is this a know issue? Also, the auth.txt file has disappeared after the first connection, is this normal?

It's not a known issues at least for me. I have to test it with my reader.

It's normal. Grive doesn't anymore need it after successful synchronization.

Thanks spmatti - I had to uninstall it, as after a good hour it was still not syncing my books, and many of them had simply disappeared

That is for an epub on the SD card with the path:

Code:
/Bagley, Desmond/Spoilers - Desmond Bagley.epub
The image size should be 600*800. But, if you don't want to stretch the cover, you can maintain the covers aspect ratio and size to either the width or height.

No go unfortunately, still shows the cover in the Library view but not in sleep mode.

No real problem though as it's more for emergency book downloads.

Hi !

Thanks for the script.
I'm encountering a problem while installing it on a Kobo Glo : it seems it can't reach the google authentification server.

The README is generated without the auth codes, and the last-grive-sync states ping: bad address 'www.google.com' and then usr/local/grive-sync/sync.sh: Synchronization error.

Am I missing something in the installation process ?

which firmware version you are using? I just tried today with 2.5.2 and 2.6.1 and in version 2.6.1 I also didn't get the auth code in README.txt. Only with version 2.5.2 I got it.
After an update to 2.6.1 I get also sync error and it isn't working at all - even if I do the update after the succesful setup process. Fortunately I do not get 2.6.1 automaticly so I was able to try it with both versions.

I'm on 2.6.1 (Bought the Kobo yesterday, let it download every update he wanted before I started using it)

Is there a way to downgrade it to 2.5 (and is it wise or is 2.6 really useful) ?

I haven't tried but I guess it would be like a normal manual upgrade but with a lower software version.
Mine also bought just 2 days before yours came with 2.5 and when I do a factory reset will go back to this version.
If you search for kobo firmware you will find also older versions.

If you search, this has been discussed. Generally you can. But, it is recommended that you do a factory reset and connect to the PC for the setup. This will copy the latest firmware to the device. When that is finished, remove the firmware files and replace them with firmware you want to use. I have done this a couple of time without issue and have never heard of a problem doing this.

In this special case, namely downgrading form 2.6.1, you should definitely factory reset in order to avoid problems. I think the problems are somehow related to the bin and sbin directories.

Thank you everyone for your help, I dowgraded to 2.5.2 and installed this plugin and it works flawlessly.
I just miss the lack of book title in 2.6.1...

I just can't seem to prevent my Kobo Glo from updating to 2.6.1 It just automaticly updates after installing 5.2 firmware..

How to prevent updating so I can use kobo-grive-sync?
