I have two problems:
  1. When I quit the launcher, sometimes a random document is opened, sometimes it shows a broken home, sometimes I can't read epub books because it shows a blank screen instead, but it signals that the book is 99% read (?). All the times I have to restart the device. This is the content of the log file:
    Spoiler:

    KoboFb::setDirty(591, 11, 46, 736)
    KoboFb::setDirty(0, 0, 1024, 758)
  2. The text editor is very slow. It's a pity, I installed the launcher mainly for it.

I have a Kobo Glo firmware 2.4.0 with Kobo Tweaks installed.

Thanks! will be fixed soon.

This is because the eink display is slow itself. But you can type symbols AS FAST AS YOU CAN and don't wait while they appear on the screen

about bug: good I think the "random document" is opened because Nichel takes the touch performed to close the launcher.

about text editor: ok, but I'm not a typist, I usually read the nonsenses I write ^^

other things: Do you plan to insert also a bash, and more difficulty levels for gomoku?

For a future game, I want to suggest Pearl

PS: thank you for the free key

I am sure you are aware of it, but I mention it nevertheless. The fact that you can launch bash scripts and that you have a text editor gives you some nice opportunities.

? Is this a "write it yourself"? :-P

EDIT: or are you saying "you can write shell scripts, modify the kobotweaks.ini and voilà"? Unluckily you can't open files or change the output path with the editor.

The idea is to have
1) a text file, for instance "myscript.txt" in the notepad text files folder
2) a bash script file, for instance "runmyscript.sh" that copies the "myscript.txt" to any place (or to the same folder) with the new name "myscript.sh" and then executes it.
3) an new entry in the ini file of the kobo launcher to the effect that you can call runmyscript.sh (I guess you can also use kobotweaks.ini here, if you still have a free slot)

Next you would write some commands into the "myscript.txt" file, save it, close notepad, launch "runmyscript.sh" from the kobo launcher.

For those characters you are likely to use in your scripts, but are not accessible via the keyboard (I did not see ">", but maybe it is somewhere there) you could prepare the "myscript.txt" file on your pc and include the needed characters in as comments in order to copy and past in when needed. Another way would be to write some placeholder strings instead fo those characters and replace them by some commands in the "runmyscript.sh".

I know this is not very comforable, but it seems to me an acceptable way of dealing with the operating system for small tasks.

Workaorund: open another book (a kepub for example) and change the text size. If you open a epub it is readable now, even if ToC is broken (you can see it, but using it to jump to chapter shows a black page).

Yes, the notepad saves the text as txt-file on the user partition. You can copy it to your pc.

Thank you!
I apologize in advance if answers should be obvious, but:
the firmware on my kobo is 2.5. Does this matter?
Should I avoid sync and updates after installing launcher?
Are the instructions on link in first post all, or is there something to be done before-hand?
Will this erase my books and Adobe id?
If I make a mistake can I return kobo back to original state and try again?
If I pause game/notepad, then say, read a book, when I return to launcher will it remember where it was? Can I reopen and edit notes?

I cannot say with certainty, because I did not use the games, and only shortly tested notepad. But I guess you can.

I haven't try 2.5 firmware yet, but I guess that it will work.

I think you shouldn't. But if you use KoboLauncher with Kobo Tweaks, I can't guarantee that Kobo Tweaks will work with the future firmware versions. But first, we can start KoboLauncher without Kobo Tweaks and second, I think the Kobo Tweaks project will be adopted to the future firmware versions anyway because of a lot of people are interested in it.

For chess - yes. For notepad - you should save a note before exit. For the rest of games - no.

I've fixed this and updated installation.

Changed files: libKoboTS.so

Lucas, this fix should solve the issue but I'm waiting for your confirmation because I can reproduce this problem very rarely.

I have this issue too. I couldn't find the reason of this issue. The solution that works for me:

Just after device turning on and before KoboLauncher start just open any epub. After closing it you can open KoboLauncher.

Yes, launcher (if properly installed) is started when you open "launcher.png" file from the shelf.
