I will connect with GoodReader folks as such. But, in the meantime assuming until they find the time or feel like doing it.

What could I do on my own as a community member to build some kind of add-on to your framework for GoodReader?

Would it be possible to patch together and have some minimal functions working without getting co-op from them?
If you want minimal functionality, you can drag PDFs from calibre to GoodReader's File Sharing in iTunes, or use GoodReader's WiFi features to add books.

The full range of file management features made available by the driver is only possible if the app adds support for the protocol.

If the developers are interested in supporting the protocol, have them contact me.

Perhaps I need to develop a little more accuracy in my posts. I *know* its not Real Soon Now... that why I capitalised. Perhaps I should have added a ;-). Its just an expression, Dale. Kris has now explained why it hasn't yet arrived, for which I thank him.

I dropped GoodReader guys an email with a link to this thread/ certain posts.

Let's see if they bite.

I decided to build a proof-of-concept sample driver using GoodReader as the target application. It will be included in the initial release of the driver as described here. It is a very basic implementation.

Brilliant! We should have a few more people write to them and bug them to support this

What say people? All those who are stuck with PDFs in some way.

Driver problem

Hi Kris,

I have completed all steps shown here : http://blog.marvinapp.com/post/53438...-native-driver

but, I can't connect my iPad to Calibre.

My iPad shows the message -
"Calibre Connector (Waiting for Calibre) with the Disconnect button" and doesn't connect to Calibre at all.

I use Mac OSX with iTunes installed and have updated Calibre to 0.9.35 too. I couldn't solve the problem and don't know what went wrong.

Please help.

@andy88. Try this sequence: close the calibre popup in Marvin, close calibre, disconnect USB cable, reconnect cable, reopen calibre and then open the calibre connector in Marvin?

Also, could you post support questions about the driver here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=215624

*Is 'Marvin' selected in the Preferred iOS reader application combo box in the configuration dialog?

*Is your iPad shown as a connected device in iTunes?

*Do you have 'Sync with this iPad over Wi-Fi' enabled in iTunes? If so, try turning it off

As Kris noted, please post followups in the Calibre Plugins forum.
