Quick vote of encouragement: KPW2 running 5.4.2.1 installed duokan latest version and it works - install stalled with update error 4 but after restart installed to completion and ran, registered on website and installed update - all working so far. Using kindlets & kual menu to switch in and out.

Trick to changing language is: press the home button at the bottom left, then press gear button bottom right. Select middle button at top (is the system menu) and change to page 2 and the first drop down is the language button: choose english. Then press the home button and all the menus should change... booting back to kindle is by way of the switch drop down on page one of the same (central) menu block (item 2)

Hope that helps some one...

1 One reason why I installed duokan was the support for directories. In the kindle3 that I have the directory structure is flat so contents of subdirectories are treated as elements of the parent directory. It seems that this is also true of duokan. So, I have a directory for the books by Peter Abrahams (called Abrahams, Peter) and in that directory I have a subdirectory called Echo Falls (the name of a series of books that he wrote). When I sort by directories I see an entry for Echo Falls but it shows 0 files. The files I put in the Echo Falls subdirectory show up later in the directory listing for Abrahams, Peter. This is not what I want. I am on the 2014 release of duokan. Have I missed something?

2 People talk about weekly (or some similar regularities) updates to duokan and even about downloading them over the duokan wireless link. Where do I get them from?

1 Solved it. It seems that duokan creates a directory for each book. I don't know what it contains but I made the mistake of putting that in the subdirectory without also putting the book in! Naturally I assumed the book was in this directory (duh!).

Thank you for that information.

Does duokan index files the way Kindle did?

html tags in stardict dictionary with Duokan [SOLVED]

So I spent the best part of 5 hours this afternoon going mad trying to get rid of the html tags a French stardict dictionary for my girlfriend. I don't know if this will work for everyone but no harm in trying. I'm not an active member here so please feel free to repost this elsewhere if there are other people with the same problem. Love!

1. Download StarDictPortableEditor here :https://code.google.com/p/stardict-3....paf.exe&can=2

2. Install and run: StarDictEditorPortable.exe

3. Click the Decompile/Verify tab and browse to your stardict dictionary's .ifo file. Click decompile.

4. Download pyglossary here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pygl...atest/download

(you may need to install this too to get the GUI to work: http://www.pygtk.org/downloads.html)

5. Download and install Python 2 (https://www.python.org/ftp/python/2....thon-2.7.8.msi)

6. Extract pyglossary, navigate to the \scr directory and double click pyglossary.pyw.

7. in Pyglossary go to the "Preferences" tab and make sure "Remove tags after loading" is checked

8. Return to the "Convert" tab and browse to the .txt document that you decompiled from your dictionary earlier.

9. Hit load (and pray)

10. In the field "Write to format" select "StarDict (ifo)" and click convert (keeping an eye on where the output is going)

11. Copy and paste the output files into the appropriate Duokan directory


Please forgive and interrogate me if there are errors in what I've written. Right now I'm exhausted and I'll come back and try to help if anyone responds. In the immediate, rest assured: it is possible!

After all of that, when you wake, consider getting a different girlfriend.
