Hmm, interesting. Anything in the console logs that indicates what might be happening? If so can you PM the log to me? Thanks

I realize how foolish this is making me look but.....

Could somebody (perhaps Ephemerality since he answered my last question)
tell me the exact location of xray file in ipad app.

First I did not have a acx folder in ipad and after a few frustrated tried I gave up. Re installing and restarting fixed the problem. I even generated a .acs file from the original site when plug-in didn't work out from me.
Where exactly should I put it ?

- Just drag and drop it in the acx folder directly like I did it ? [image link here:http://imgur.com/Rb7Bjeu. It was too damn big and did not want to inconvenience the other users who would have to scroll down to get to some other useful post]

or For examble: a .mobi file of ebook A game of thrones:-
- make a folder called your_book_name.sdr and put it in there ? or

- make a folder called A_game of_thrones.sdr and put it in there (A_game_of_thrones is the database name found under Header info->PDB header under title name as per Mobi Meta Editor) or

- make a folder called A Game of Thrones.sdr and put it there ? (A Game of Thrones is the 503|updated title in EXTH records as per Mobi Meta Editor)

- How to access the xray info on ipad kindle info on ipad app ? the below colored text was my original question but upon further searching after writing it, I m not too sure of anything anymore.

Quote:
- Also is the xray info available by pressing the second icon on top left corner called Go to -> Book Extras (in my casegreyed out with text saying not available for this title).

Yeah the problem I see in that pic at least is that you made the ACX folder within the Kindle.app.
It goes in the Kindle folder, but under Library. For example, on my iPhone, my book is located in Kindle/Library/eBooks/B00655KOZK_EBOK.mobi.
My X-Ray file is in Kindle/Library/ACX/XRAY.entities.B00655KOZK.asc.
When I'm in my book I tap to bring up the interface, there's a little book at the bottom to open the Go To menu and X-Ray is at the bottom as you mentioned if all goes right.

Smile yup that does it

It did the trick. I have checked it with 2 files sent to kindle. They do end up in ebook folder. And placed the files where you told me (previously you said to place them in kindle app folder and i thought it meant placing them in kindle.app folder).

Xray works now. In my ipad i access it by single tap on page -> And it is present on top right (3rd button from right besides the refresh and the View Options buttons). Dunno if it is working okay, in all terms and pages things, the description is a single line followed by - Wikipedia. Eg.

I mean should't there be some data from shelfari anyplace? But hell I ain't complaining and this will work (now to see if it is any use in non-fiction works), and

What is supposed to happen is that the plugin unpacks the content of the book into a directory, then goes and looks for the .rawml file in a subdirectory. It looks like this isn't being found in this case.

Is this a mobi8 file? I thought I added support for that but maybe it isn't working.

It's supposed to be!

It had complained when I tried importing an alias file I created for the cmd.

Is it (with the pipe):

John Smith|John,Johnny,J-Dog
I think that's right. Looking at the files I tested it on, I only had one alias after the pipe, so maybe that bit isn't working. Did you get an error, or did it just fail to generate?

Quote:
Otherwise, it is a dream. It might be good to put out "XRAY File Complete.", or something in the log. It ends with "Parsing book..." which makes it appear to still be working.
Good idea, thanks.

I don't see why not, if people would find that useful. (I think the original expectation was that people would have their Kindles plugged in and the Xray would be generated straight into the sdr folder, but if people are using it differently then no problem.)

I have the Kindle Paperwhite and created an X-Ray for Eragon without a problem but I get the "X-Ray is not available for this book" error message with the code of SX on the bottom.

I have tried providing only the bare minimum (Shelfari, ASIN, and GUID) but I get the same error. I don't know what I need to do to get it working.

Note: My mobi file did not have the ASIN attribute so I added it via the MobiMetaEditor. Will it work this way?

Are you using the app or the plugin? SX means the X-ray is invalid. It's possible there are some sort of invalid characters or something. Can you post the file?

I don't know what you mean by app or plugin. I'm using http://www.xunwang.me/xray/ and putting the file on my Kindle.

I wasn't sure how to attach a file so I opened it up in Notepad and copied it.

Biggest thing I see wrong is at the beginning.

There is a space in "terms".

Also, the website is the most basic of X-Ray files you can make. You can make proper x-rays with either the stand-alone application or the Calibre plugin.

I've finally started to get the Calibre plug in to work, but it seems like I'm going to need an alias file. Are there repositories for working xray files / alias files? I'm working on Song of Ice and Fire. I have a 100% working xray file from my purchase of book two today, if it would help to let you see the files...

Where can I see an example of a correct alias file in case I would have to make my own?

Also, I seem to run into this crash a lot:

XRAY generation failed...
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "calibre_plugins.xray_generator.xrayaction", line 209, in run
File "calibre_plugins.xray_generator.xrayaction", line 252, in _generate_xray
File "calibre_plugins.xray_generator.xrayaction", line 596, in rawml
IndexError: list index out of range

... but the unpack folder has the rawml file in it.
(I'm on MBP running Snow Lion with up to date Calibre)

When it does work (for example with Storm of Swords from Song of Ice and Fire) the X Ray is off by some characters, and the chapters don't seem to be separated (everything looks like its in the first few pages on the bar)... however the page numbers are rather accurate (again, the terms are off by a bit)

There are no x-ray or alias repositories so far. I kind of wanted to make one, but the x-ray info is sourced from Shelfari so it is already public, and the locations in the x-ray are extremely dependent on your own copy of the book and how/if it was processed by Calibre.
The aliases are something that could be saved and distributed I suppose.
Attached is an example, the aliases I used for Hitchhiker's Guide.

If you use a retail book on the Kindle, but create the x-ray using a version that has had the DRM removed, there will be an offset in the locations. The stand-alone app has an option to account for this, not sure about the plugin version.
If you use Calibre to process the book before running it through the x-ray generator the chapter locations should be accurate. If not, they have to be done manually using a .chapters files (example attached of my manually-created chapter file for Hitchhiker's Guide). Again, not sure if the Calibre plugin supports that or not, I'm just going off what mine supports.

Is there a way to generate the loc values for a given term without generating the whole x-ray? or adding your own terms to the x-ray generator's search? Shelfari isn't always perfect....

The programs could be modified to do those things.
Generally any time Shelfari has something omitted or inaccurate, I just update it myself until I'm satisfied.
