can't get it to run

Hi there,

I try to get cool reader to run on my PB903 but it does not even start.

I have downloaded the Version for PRO and put

the .app into /mnt/ext1/system/bin

the cr3 folder into /mnt/ext1/system/share

and edited the config file to get cr3 into the pop up menu's.

But the app crashes with "Fehler beim Programmstart" (error while starting program) (I use German Pocketbook).

Hi Martin, what firmware are you running? I just tried it out in my PB903 and it does work - I am on the 2.1.1 beta version of the firmware.

The same thing happened to me on my PB360. I redownloaded the archive several times (http://bivsumy.narod2.ru/pocketbook_602_pro/cr3forpb/), uninstalled the previous versions, and now it's working fine.

Thanks pkbo! The fonts settings and display are much better in this version. Great work!

CR

Hi paola,

i was on 2.06 before - it did not work,

just updated to 2.1.1beta - does not work.

I really have no idea, what could go wrong on my device.

I have already installed other third-party apps, e.g. pbchess and zwadrax, poterm and get_root - I am no newbie. But in case of CR (i tried it several versions before - and it never worked).

I can not find any kind of log file to help me understand, what is wrong, just the message mentioned in last post and back to menu.

Hi Martin,
I am really no techie, and do not know what to suggest - it should work, so unless there is something silly like a typo, or an extra space or comma in the extensions.cfg file, I really cannot see why it wouldn't work - perhaps you could send a pm to pkbo (since I am not too sure how often he checks this forum)?

Hi pkbo,

great work so far

Unfortunately I've got a whole bunch of books from BEAN free library where I'm unable to change Font style or even size, sometimes I get a sufficient result , changing either one or the other, but most times nothing happens
And even if I succeed to have the font I want in the right size, latest after turning of the device it goes back to the previous setting.

My settings are: Droid Serif, size 19, normal, antialiasing on
Preformatted text: off, embedded styles: off, Font kerning (don't know what it is, never touched): on

Chapter headings and italics are shown right, but the normal text parts are shown in something like "Droid Mono" or "Droid Sans MTI Arabic"

I add the book I'm presently reading, so you can have a look at it (it's supposed to be shared, but not sold by BEAN Publishing)

Would be nice if you could fix this

Regards, Troll05

Looks like some configuration problem. Can you post here your extension.cfg file not all but the part containing association with coolreader? Besides if you have root privileges you may use telnet and try to run coolreader from command line /mnt/ext1/system/bin/cr3-pb.app path_to_sometestbook to check if it works for you in this way.

Do you mean 3x3 quick menu? The picture is wrong but the descriptions at the title of the menu window is correct? If it is what you meant this problem was from the beginning and I don't know how to fix it besides placing correct picture to the skin folder.

Dear pkbo,

Would it be possible to have Coolreader in 16 shades of gray instead of 4, now that we have the SDK for the Pro series ?

cr3

Hi pbko,

it really seems to be some configuration matter, but i can not figure it out.

Unfortunately "get_root.app" does not work any more with Firmware 2.1.1beta! It used to work in 2.0.6 - but PB seem to have closed the "hole".

But I was able to start cr3-pb.app from command line via an "nc.exe" / "rsh.app" - remote session.

I think, it is essential, that cr3-pb.app is followed by a path to a existing (ebook-)file. For simplicity I used the firmware's md5-checksum as a "book":

Code:
cr3-pb.app /mnt/ext1/md5sum.txt
That really worked (although the book's content was not really exiting )!

If I start up cr3-pb.app without a path parameter following, it throws a "segmentation fault".


But although cr3-pb appears as a choice in the pop up menu, I can not start any book (all drm-free epub/txt). It just returns to menu. My config is:

Code:
txt:@Text_file:1:fbreader.app,cr3-pb.app:ICON_TXT
fb2:@FB2_file:1:fbreader.app,cr3-pb.app:ICON_FB2

and my /mnt/system/bin/ looks like:

4 Datei(en), 4.289.449 Bytes

(I also placed "cr3-pb.app" to "/mnt/ext1/system/bin/applications" to be sure it can be found.)

My "/mnt/system/share/cr3/" is:

Verzeichnis von O:\system\share\cr3

13.06.2011 18:57 <DIR> .

13.06.2011 19:15 5.264 txt.css
8 Datei(en), 37.212 Bytes

I believe, that selecting "cr3-pb" from pop up menu somehow results in a wrong path-parameter while calling "cr3-pb.app".

Perhaps it is a hint, that "fbreader.app" and "AdobeViewer.app" can't be found in "/mnt/ext1/system/bin" nor in "/mnt/ext1/system/applications" ,
but in (root-) /bin or so, where i can't see/access them from USB but only with poterm or something like this.

Edit:

I have not changed anything, but suddenly it works. I can start books from the pop-up menu now.
But i really do not know the reason why!
