What doesn't work? Have you reinstalled FBReader after you upgraded?

No, I didn't know that I had to reinstall it. I'll give it a try.

It works for me now, thanks!

Hi Adam,

using Firmware 2.10, I've downloaded it today, it appears to install correctly, but I have no icon anywhere on my CF card to run it..?

The install Icon's text changes to say "FBReader Has been Installed" "Delete this directory and run from Programs" but there is no FBReader icon in my Programs dir.

Edit: created own loader and pointed it to installed files.

Works well here on 2.10!

Even remembered my font and margin settings.

Though not sure if I was supposed to I executed the uninstall script first.

You realize that you have to edit that er_whatsitsname.txt file to get
FBReader to start by selecting just the books representation in content
lister?

Gee... it helps reading the second page too...

An Update: I've found the bug that was preventing recent versions of FBReader from launching on the iLiad. You should be able to expect the newest version of FBReader (0.8.8) to be ported next week.

There have been a few changes since 0.8.4:
  • French translation of interface (by Pierre Senellart) has been added.
  • CHM support has been improved.
  • Ukrainian translation of interface has been added.
  • '0097' character bug has been fixed.
  • The *.epub files support has been added (table of contents building is not supported yet).
  • OEB metainfo support has been fixed.
  • Opening of the OEB/OpenReader file sppecified in the command line has been fixed.
  • Problem with JPEG images in mobipocket files has been fixed.
  • Line breaking bug has been fixed.
  • Default encoding option has been added.
  • Position indicator drawing and navigation problems have been fixed.
  • LZX decompression code has been completely rewritten.

I may have to push back the timeline of the FBReader release a bit.

I've found that the screen updates are much slower when using the hacked libX11. I manually call the page refresh when changing pages, but still use libX11 for the options and library screens.

When I use only internal refreshes, changing pages is much faster. With the previous version, it was a "one-and-two-and-three-an" count. Now, it's much similar to iPDF with a "one-and-two-a" count to refresh. I'll have to do a lot of digging though the code to make sure all the refreshes are in there and not interfering with each other. But I think it'll be worth the wait.

A status update: I have the latest version of FBReader compiled and working. Screen refreshes are quicker, still not PDF or Mobipocket speeds, but it's definitely useable.

Now I need to work on the hard part. Packaging it together and testing the installer. Expect a release early this week.

One thing that is in the newer versions is the automatic addition of MOBI ebooks to the library. I have found this a mixed blessing if you have many MOBI books, because startup is longer and the author names (if any) etcetera are whatever is in the MOBI file. It is possible to control this feature by editing FBReader's book path, and if you usually use the contentlister as your "library" view you should definitely make sure your FBReader path does not include any MOBI files. If you expect many books to be added to your library it might be worth saving a copy of your existing user state before upgrading.

W00t! I suppose there's not much point in giving you more MobileRead karma at this point, but I'd like to send you some of the Real Life kind.

Out of curiosity, is there a uninstaller for FBReader? Or does one need to reflash their iLiad to effect a removal?

-tnx,

Jeff

Yes. If FBReader (0.8.4) is /media/cf/Programs/FBReader then the uninstaller is /media/cf/Programs/Uninstall/FBReader

All it does is:
Code:
ipkg remove fbreader
I don't think FBReader is very intrusive if it is installed on the CF card. There are some softlinks from /usr/local to the CF card, but they are mostly harmless.
