The files are renamed libprs500_id when transferred to either main memory or the storage card. What do you mean by they lose meta-information?

I dont have any ebooks in chm format, so I don't care about chm2lrf, but I'm sure there are other chm2html converter that can be easily combined with html2lrf.

You can look at a quick guide to converting convert from CHM to HTML at Wikipedia.

Yes just run the command line programs just as you would in any other OS. You have to run the GUI once first.

Hi, I like the concept behind libprs500... Unfortunately, I can't get it to work at all. When I add a book to the library, either with the button or by dragging and dropping, the file doesn't show up in the library. I briefly see some metadata displayed below the file list, but the file never shows up. Any ideas?

Best wait a few weeks, there's a whole new GUI on the way.

I've just emailed you a bug report that happens converting a LIT file. Might have to do with drop caps. I've attached the file in question.

This is my first jump into using the command line, but i'm trying to expand my horizons I'm on Mac OS 10.4.10 and i've run the GUI. when i open up the terminal i get into the application directory where i placed the program then this happens:

[quote]
Dragon:~/applications zomalloch$ lit2lrf --help Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/Applications/libprs500.app/Contents/Resources/lit2lrf.py", line 8, in <module>
from libprs500.ebooks.lrf.lit.convert_from import main
File "/Applications/libprs500.app/Contents/Resources/libprs500.py", line 8, in <module>
from libprs500.gui.main import main
ImportError: No module named gui.main
[quote]

It's probably pure newbie error, but can anyone point me in the right direction?

Interestingly it was a negative font size specification that was causing the problem. Will be fixed in next release.

I tried going up a few directories, but still same error. DId you mean move the program out of the app directory?

Hmm odd. Try deleting and redownloading. Then run the GUI and then try lit2lrf.
