Try --margin-top. Not sure if it's overriden by --header, try it and see.

OK, probably a really stupid question, but just want to make sure.

It's not possible to convert from within the GUI (libprs500.exe)?

So I have to use the command prompt (with the various separate converters individually) to convert files to lrf?

- Again, sorry for the (probably dumb) question. I just ordered my PRS500 from the US (can't get it in shops here in europe) and need to convert hundreds & hundreds of ebooks in various formats all mixed together (I'm not very organized).

EDIT: As stated, very stupid question. Already found the answer on your website. Thanks for a great piece of software btw! (oh, and this means just ignore the rest of the post)

no the gui doesn't have an interface to the converters. Though that should change in the next few weeks ;-)

The driver doesn´t work for Windows 64 Bit. Should be no problem to compile it for 64 Bit Windows (it is open source, isn´t it). Will check that out ...

You don't have to do it in command line. I have found in WinXP that drag and drop works, with the output placed in:

C:\Documents and Settings\your_user_name_here

At the risk of asking a stupid question again, is there any way to batch-convert files? I've tried using wildcards (eg. lit2lrf X:\SomeDir\*.lit or lit2lrf *.lit) but it doesn't work.

-----------------

Actually, I'm not even able to convert a single file in the same directory as libprs500 (renamed the .lit in the example below to remove spaces, etc.):

C:\Program Files\libprs500>lit2lrf Blah.lit

You have to write a script to do batch conversions. As for that failing lit file, it's convertlit that's failing. You should contact that programs author. Most probably that lit file is either DRM'ed or corrupt.

That's strange. I have a separate instance of convertlit 1.8, and it can convert the .lit file from the test above with no problems whatsoever to HTML.

lit2lrf is on your PATH you dont need to run it from the libprs500 directory. Try it from elsewhere.

Put this line in a batch file named, say batch.bat:
Code:
for %%f in (*.lit) do lit2lrf --blank-after-para "%%f"
Then, run it in a directory where you want the contents converted. It is not recursive and will only work in one directory. I didn't need it to go to any directories below the main one, but if you want to figure out how to do that, go right ahead

Also, if you're finding that the stuff in your libprs500 directory isn't in your path when you open cmd, make sure you're not using Microsoft's "Command Line Here" power toy. I've noticed that for some reason, it doesn't use the path. Just go to start>run>cmd then hit enter. You'll have to navigate to the directory you want to convert lit files in, but if you make it a sub folder off your C:\ drive, there shouldn't be any problems.

I'm getting a strange error any time I upload a book to my prs500:

Unable to send book.lrf to device
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "main.py", line 348, in upload_books
File "libprs500\devices\prs500\driver.pyo", line 168, in run_session
File "libprs500\devices\prs500\driver.pyo", line 929, in add_book
File "libprs500\devices\prs500\books.pyo", line 282, in add_book
KeyError: 'tags'

The book shows up fine, but I'm afraid there might be some issue that pops up later. Can I safely ignore this message?

I've uninstalled the Connect drivers & rebooted before installing libprs500, and the reader is on the latest firmware from initially hooking it up to the Connect software.

Yeah that's a side effect of some changes i made in the driver for the new beta gui. You can ignore it. It will be fixed in the next release.

Just attempted to convert another LIT file to LRF and get this error:

X:\eBooks\>lit2lrf --blank-after-para book.Lit
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "convert_from.py", line 94, in <module>
File "convert_from.py", line 89, in main
File "convert_from.py", line 48, in process_file
AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'verbose'

I'll add this to the bugtracker.
