Are you saying that you have modified CoolReader to work on the e-ink screen?

I've been running CoolReader an the LCD screen almost since Buggins released the Android version.

Hi sunlifeng,

Congratulations, it works, great stuff !!!

As you said, there are some problems (for me they are related to the turning of pages) but the display on the e-ink side is full screen and perfect.

(I had to manually change the permissions of /dev/graphics/fb2 to R+W for everybody to make it work ...)

Would it be possible to do the same for a djvu reader like VuDroid or Orion Viewer ? This would be absolutely crucial for me as converting those files is a mess. Could you kindly provide instructions on what to do ?

(Something else further down on my wishlist would be to get the PDF viewer by javese working on the EE in order to use his full-screen PDFviewer).

I remember I had write root access code in it , but When I try on my EE there no. I will add it next time to avoid change permission .
I had notice turning problem .But CoolReader is a bit big program ,I need time to solve the problem .
I will try Orion Viewer or VuDriod next Friday. I did not have the broad band till then .

Runs on the PE, but does not 'work'

As a fan of CoolReader on my cellphone, I thought I'd give it a try on the PE, and while it did install and load up an epub, my results were not quite useful, but still very close

Please understand that this is just my observations, not complaints I didn't expect it to run at all, but I thought I might try and send in my results just in case it is useful for improving the program. If things cannot be fixed for the PE, I don't mind

The first problem was with the page size, in Page mode in portrait view, the page boundaries do not line up with the LCD screen, the left page is cut off on the right margin, the right page is cut off even more so on the left. I tried changing font sizes and page margins, but I'm guessing the app is fixed to the dimensions of the EE screen and so there is no way to adjust it for the smaller PE screen.

In landscape view, the view is not clipped, but the page mode only goes from the top of one page to the top of the next, it will not scroll down to show the remaining screen below the bottom of the viewport screen. In scroll mode however, documents can be read quite nicely.

I wasn't able to to figure out how to switch to the eink screen -- the program did ask me for root permissions which I granted (I am running Ermine) and it keeps repeating the message that it is granted root permissions, but I'm not sure how I would tell the program to use the eink side.

Since I rely on it on the LCD screen - I use both e-ink and LCD very often on the same manual but different pages, at the same time - I will have to forgo trying it because I can't loose the use of it on the LCD.

If you can get it to work with both screens and also allow notations to be made on the e-ink side then it becomes a useful tool.

If I change the package name, it can installed without touch origin coolreader.
What you want is what I want .

I was not able to so either at first, but from playing with javese's fbreader for e-ink and full-screen pdf, using send to e-ink
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=153653
the only way I could get something to show on the e-ink side was by first (using ghost commander) changing permissions of /dev/graphics/fb2 to r+w for everybody and then opening any pdf file on the e-ink side before trying starting coolreader for e-ink

For a newbie you are doing great, wish I was a newbie like that !

even if changing package names does not work to have both run in parallel (it did not seem to work for fbreader(J) by javese, or did it ?) there is indeed still the possibility to play between fb and coolreader.

to summarize, to have the best of both worlds:

for the PE you can have fbreader by javese for the e-ink
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...ghlight=javese
replacing fbreaderJ which you can get from obsessed2's sticky
and coolreader from the same post for the lcd side

for the EE, coolreader from this post for e-ink and fbreaderJ from obsessed2's post for lcd

Wow! That's the greatest news about full-sized EE since the release of Ermine! Finally some tweak that's not PE-only. So I'll have to root. What should I start with?

Not workign on EE on EInk

Hello I have the EE and it is rooted. I checked the dev/graphics/fb.. and they are rw. When installing the program I'm asked to grant root access and grant it. When loading the program it comes up on the lcd side only, and as others said the text is off the screen.

I want to comend you on your new programming skills, and let you know what I have found so far. Thank you.

But they are only rw for root and graphic not for others, what i did with ghost commnder in root and rw mode is to change all of them to allow everything for fb2 (this might be stupid though so no guarantee ) it did not work with root explorer and i needed several tries until all showed rwx, good luck!
