Some FBReader questions
Have started using FBReader. Such a great app ! Iñigo, I think you are a hero for all DR800 owners.
I had some questions relating to the use of FBReader.
1. FBReader doesn't open its own tab (yes, I'm using DR800+, another very commendable achievement !) like other apps do. Thus, if I want to say start StarDict for it to interact with FBReader, I'm forced to close FBReader (or rather it is automatically closed when I "Go back to Home"). Quite a pity. Is this by design? Is it a bug on my DR only? Is this fixable?
2. Is there any way to make FBReader the default reader when you open an ePub ? I guess not, since it'd probably require modifying the .uds...
Thanks in advance.

W.r.t. your questions:
1) This is still some point on which Iñigo and I need to align. There currently is a DR800 and a DR1000 version. The main difference is that the DR1000 version appears in a tab like the build-in applications do. You could try the DR1000 version, but I am not sure how 'compatible' both versions are w.r.t. storage of configuration settings.
2) The application that is involved to start the correct viewer (like uds or FBReader) is called ctb. The code of this application is published, it only has hardcoded settings for folders and shortcuts, all other filetypes are configurable via gconf. So it should be possible to remove/change the link between .epub and uds. Something like:
gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/er/sys/ctb/filetypes/doc-epub/viewer_cmd "/media/mmcblk0p1/Programs/_fbreader/bin/FBReader"
gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/er/sys/ctb/filetypes/doc-epub/viewer_cmd "uds"
