I only have one question, just in case:

I used the interal launcher to install your program suite on 2.8.1. If I ever wanted to uninstall KoboLauncher and all programs, how would I go about that? I am sorry if this was asked before. I searched far and wide but I wasn't able to find anything on this matter.

Thanks again!
Kobohobo,

I'll prepare the uninstall script and think about the way of it's execution in a few days. It will be enough to remove:

1. .kobo/KoboLauncher directory
2. launcher.png file

from your reader.

Thanks for the quick response! Your program suite has been running in a very stable fashion for me and I have yet to find a bug. So I don't think I will be needing to uninstall it anytime soon. It's good to know though that the removal procedure is just as easy as the installation.

I look forward to trying your uninstall script out when it's released. (Make no mistake, though. First thing I'm going to do afterwards is installing KoboLauncher again, haha).

Ok, great!

Another thing:
is it possible to set the Touch to "sleep mode" instead of "power off" with the command "/bin/busybox poweroff" as mentioned in this post?

Idea is to set the Touch in "sleep" state and awaking from "sleep" instead of "power off" to start quickly again.

Any suggestions ideas?

sunda, Links to kobo plugins and launcher sources is restored. I've also uploaded the kobo_qt_toolchain.tgz file that contains the new kobo toolchain + Qt 4.8.4 build for kobo.

SEE THE FIRST POST

To install it:

1. copy archive to the root directory ("/")
2. sudo tar zxvf /kobo_qt_toolchain.tgz
3. sudo rm kobo_qt_toolchain.tgz

2. I don't know anything about sleep mode on kobo...

Sergey, any chance we could get QtWeb (or another full-fledged web browser) running with this launcher?

http://code.google.com/p/qtweb/

http://qtweb.net/download.php


Edit: Even better! Let's get Firefox Mobile (Fennec) running on Kobo:

Hi, kenoi

I think that Qt web is a good idea. But I have not enough free time to implement it myself. Of cause, I can help if somebody starts this work. The most difficult place is vistual on-screen keyboard.

Not after only a minute but when I tried to use my Aura this morning, while it was in Koreader, there was no touch response. When I put it on a charger it restarted the Aura and showed 0% charge. Perhaps something with the 2.8.1 firmware can allow the frontlight to remain on at a low level, draining the battery overnight? Perhaps I should set the power saving options to power off after some time. Could be something related?

Luck;
Ken

Sergey,

I am using your screen plugin and I am very thankful for it. I found one strange thing. If I call a program with Rot0 (or if memory serves, anything else then Rot90/180/270) the top of the screen looks to West (as expected from Rot0) and the colors are inverted. It would be nice if we could somehow control this feature. I looked at your script, but I cannot figure out what is happening.

tshering, The new version of KoboLauncher and apps will be ready in a few days. The rotation/inversion is fixed in the improved screen plugin. So, please wait a few days. Possible on Monday.

Thank you Sergey. I am not in a hurry. Do you consider toggling inversion by a command line argument?

I think it can be plugin argument. Something like:
