Post Removed percent from book progress bar K2 K3 K4 K5 PW1

Tested on a K2, K3, K4, K5 and PW.

This little utility will overwrite the somewhat annoying "Progress Indicator" at the bottom of the page.

it's an evolution from
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=207020
and
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=139049

until a better solution is found.

Hope it helps.

The UGLY Donkey work:

PHP Code:
#!/bin/sh

PLATFORM="$(cat /sys/devices/platform/mxc_epdc_fb/graphics/fb0/modes)"

echo $PLATFORM

if [ -"$PLATFORM"  ]; then
    
# it's probably something ancient

    
if [ ! -/proc/fiveway_wake   ] ; then

    
echo "k2 or something detected"

        
echo "" > /var/log/messagestail -/var/log/messages 2>/dev/null | \
        
awk '/.*PageAction*./ || /.*acxmgrd*./ || /.*NextPage*./ || /.*Reader*./ {system("/mnt/us/extensions/hideProgressBar/bin/wiperk2.sh &")}  '
        
exit 0

        
else
    echo 
"k3 or k4 or something detected"

        
echo "" > /var/log/messagestail -/var/log/messages 2>/dev/null | \
        
awk '/.*PageAction*./ || /.*acxmgrd*./ || /.*NextPage*./ || /.*Reader*./ {system("/mnt/us/extensions/hideProgressBar/bin/wiperk4.sh &")}  '
        
exit 0
    fi
fi

if [ -"$PLATFORM"  ]; then
    
if [ "$PLATFORM!= "${PLATFORM/758/}]; then

    
echo "PW detected"

    
echo "" > /var/log/messagestail -/var/log/messages 2>/dev/null exec /usr/bin/parselog | \
    
awk '/.*PageTurnAction*./ || /.*JunoExecutionManager*./  {system("eips -d l=FFF,w=758,h=48 -x 0 -y 977")}  '

    
else
    
# it's something else, probably older

    
echo "Non-PW detected"

    
echo "" > /var/log/messagestail -/var/log/messages 2>/dev/null exec /usr/bin/parselog | \
    
awk '/.*PageAction*./ || /.*acxmgrd*./ {system("eips -d l=FFF,w=600,h=40 -x 0 -y 760 ")}  '

    
fi
fi 


Feel free to improve on that.

Question

When I activate the script it works as described, but after a while (~10 changed pages) it stops working. Tested on my K4 NT. Any idea what happens here?

Hi !

Just wanted to say thank you for this extenstion. It really saved me, as I was driving crazy with this useless percentage while reading (my attention kept focusing on it !).

THANK YOU !
