FBReader Registry installer for 2.11

Because of problems with porting the latest version of FBReader to 2.11, I've decided to go ahead and release the registry installer.

What this will do, is allow you to open supported files directly from the contentlister without having to use FBReader's library functions.

You will need to have firmware 2.11 and my latest port of FBReader installed for this to work.

File Extensions Supported:
  • chm
  • rtf
  • oeb
  • opf
  • epub
  • fb2
  • tcr
Attached Files
File Type: zip fbreader_registry.zip (6.8 KB, 1572 views)

Thanks, this was what I needed to upgrade to 2.11!

It unpacks for me as well.

Is anyone else having problems? Has anyone installed it? Comments or suggestions?

It works for me. The only problem I had was that some of my .fb2 files are in zip archives (.fb2.zip). These work in the content lister providing I unzip them first.

In the case of FB2 files, FBReader will automatically add them to its library (even if zipped) if they are in its search path.

I updated the ILiad_FBReader wiki page for the latest install method. I also added a few Usage Notes.

Unzipping, no problem.
Installed FBreader registry (I had fun with the beta for 2.10.2). Thanks Adam as always. And good luck with the porting issue!

I'll try downloading again. It said 7kb, so I assumed I had the whole file, but there might have been an error somewhere in the process.

Hi Adam:
I wonder if anyone else has had this problem. I followed the Standalone Install instructions for FBReader when I was running iLiad firmware 2.09 and 2.10 and have never been able to run FBReader. I tried once again today after updating to 2.11 and updating Shell access. I first ran the Registry hack and rebooted and the ContentLister showed FBReader Registry Hack has been installed. I then ran Install FBReader; lots of flashing green light activity for a minute or so. Rebooted and ContentLister again shows Install FBReader. No evidence of the program. Except for the the Registry Hack install step, this replicates my experience each time I have tried to install it with earlier firmware versions.
ConvertLit works great but I can't open any of the converted files without FBReader. Any thoughts.
Thanks for your help.

Are you installing on an external card? What version of FBReader are you installing? Does it show "FBReader has been installed" after you run the installer?

I'm trying to install it on my external CF card. I'm trying to install the version linked to your 10-05-2007, 04:30 PM posting which is the first posting in this thread; 0.8.4 I think.
After I run the installer I see in contentlister "Install FBReader".

Sounds like it's not running correctly. Make sure it's not in any folders with spaces, and that your CF card doesn't have any corruption.

I updated the wiki page to be more explicit about the steps required, see: ILiad FBReader. However, this is pretty much what you did already.

My memory (from two weeks ago) is poor, but I think the following is what I did: a) copy the unziped directory to the base directory of the CF card, b) reboot after selecting the installer. You should then have FBReader in directory Programs and another directory _local for files internal to FBReader.

Well I hate to do it but throwing in the towel is starting to look pretty appealing. I tried the install on a usb stick and it worked like a charm so that boosted my confidence. I then re-formatted the CF card, put a fresh unzipped fbreaderinst folder on the drive and tried an install. Same problem; after reboot i'm still getting the Install FBReader listing in contentlister.

Is it possible to install FBReader on the Iliad's internal memory, in my attempts so far it seems to do really weird stuff when you restart the Iliad after installing it.. I've had to reflash.. but for the sake of battery life I would like to have it on the internal memory..
