Code:
export QT_QWS_FONTDIR=`pwd`/qtKindle/lib/fonts
and replace it with
Code:
export QT_QWS_FONTDIR=/usr/java/lib/fonts
BTW, if we're discussing the goqt.sh ...
fbKindle/FBreader is capable of showing dialogs and menus in many native languages:
in goqt.sh find the line
Code:
./"$1" -qws
and replace it with
Code:
./"$1" -qws -lang <your_preferred_language_code>
langage code is a two-letter sequence representing the language.
Default is en which stands for English. Following interface languages are currently supported:
Code:
[root@kindle fbKindle]# ls share/FBReader/resources/
ar.xml  de.xml  es.xml  fr.xml  id.xml  lt.xml  ru.xml  uk.xml  zh.xml
cs.xml  en.xml  fi.xml  hu.xml  itxml  nl.xml  sv.xml  vi.xml
[root@kindle fbKindle]#
(uk stands for Ukrainian...)
this method for font by editing the goqt.sh script is great. For DX user, this solves the support of CJK (Chinese, Japanese and Korean) problem.
Thanks all.

BTW, is it possible one day the FbKindle support bookmark/annotation of epub reading?

I mean are those keys robust enough to press them so often (500 times in a book with 500 pages). I.e. is there a difference from a constructional point of view regarding the normal scroll keys or the other keys on the kindle keypad?

Hi Knorst,

I also wanted to use it in landscape mode.

Did you get to change the function of the space key? I wanted to assing it to Pageforward, but I couldn't.
I could do it for normal key, such as "Z" changing its assignment in keymap.xml file, but the "Space" assignment change doesnt work....

@rafa12321:
i got it working via the options menue. Go to "keys" and assign "scroll page forward" to the space key, by pressing it in the appropriate field.

Command line for browser

Has anyone been able to use the Kindle browser from links in books read with FBReader?

Code:
FBreader - Options 

Web Tab
 
* Open External Links in Browser
Command to Execute is by default mozilla %1 &
What would be the command to configure for invoking the Kindle Browser?

It's very sad, that there seems to be no further development, as fbkindle was the only reason i bought a kindle 3!!!

But nevermind! apart from a few things, like the interface and the library-view fbkindle works perfectly well for me!

greetings

I did this, changed the font to Caecilia...and everything is in italics now. What's going on? I tried turning off italics everywhere in options but it doesn't work.

Question Dictionary lookup?

@h1uke:
AFAIK, some FBReader ports have dictionary integration support (SlovoEd, StarDict etc.)
Any chance you could add StardDict/ColorDict support to fbKindle?

the original dictionary integration code has been retained as is in the fbKindle code.
But, unfortunately, lack of a pointing device on the Kindle complicates possible solution.

Based on my current situation at work, I'd say that there's almost no chances
for me to address this in the next two, or even three months.

One thing this needs is "go to page" option.

After I install the fbkindle, there is a problem.

When I set auto-rotation in Kindle DX original system, then launch fbkindle, it works all right except when I rotate the direction of screen, then fbkindle will disappear and back to offical home pages.

then I should relaunch it again.

Is it normal?
