[Linux] Note format reader and convertor

Hi,

I have made a tiny open source software called PRS Note Reader which could read the .note format (both of text and drawing) used in Sony PRS reader , and it also can convert the file to svg or text file. Now it run on Debian or Ubuntu Linux. As it use Python and QT as the platform (just like Calibre) , should be portable to Mac and Windows.

Screenshot:



Project Site:
http://launchpad.net/prsnotereader

Packages:
prsnotereader_0.2-1_all.deb

Installation:

You may download the .deb file from the site above , or add the following source repository to your APT.

Code:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/benlau/ppa/ubuntu jaunty main
Then run
Code:
sudo apt-get install prsnotereader
Enjoy it.

I am going to port the software to Windows and Mac for ver 0.2. Hopefully the works for Windows will finish within this week.

In fact, I want to port to Mac first. But it was failed to build qt in macports. I am waiting for the maintainer of qt-mac to solve the problem....

I am bumping up this old thread, but I downloaded source code, and it does not work (under debian lenny). Has anyone else tried to get this to work?

Indeed this would be a good idea, especially since "packages" link in the original post seems to be dead.

In the meanwhile, if you are using Linux, you can install bzr package, and then just type:
Code:
bzr branch lp:prsnotereader
This will download the source code to local directory.

Hi,

Sorry that the link to PPA is broken for long time. I have resubmitted the package to PPA , and updated the link in the first post.

Actually I have noticed one issue. If I convert more than one file and save them in the same directory then I need to click on the first file which was created in order to view them in ristretto image viewer, also trying to open them on a mobile proved impossibe. I'm not sure if this is a bug in my linux (Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS - ubuntu studio precise) or maybe embedded code in the file. I can still open it in gimp, i guess because it doesn't load all images in the directory at once.
