I edited the registry.xml file to have FBReader open up txt files. All's well except I'd like to be able to change how text is flowed by FBReader if I need to. Short of editing the source code as Adam mentioned above so I can get into the options menu, is there a setting I can change in an FBReader xml file to alter the text flow in txt files?

How do you edit registry.xml? I would like to add Plucker support, as it used to work.

Ok, it's not working for me because I want to be able to read the plucker files. How do I remove it?

You'll have to install mrxvt and type: "ipkg remove fbreader" (without quotes)

This was already in Uninstal/fbreader for 0.8.4, so I have copied this directory to the attached zip file. Invoking this directory in the contentlister (any filesystem) will run the ipkg command for you.

However, I think it is the case that you should also do the following:
Code:
cp /mnt/settings/registry.xml.orig /mnt/settings/registry/registry.xml
I have not put this in run.sh, because if it is wrong you will likely brick the iLiad (it will need reflashing). If you are brave enough to try it, I include this as run_registry.sh. Rename this run.sh before copying to the iLiad to completely uninstall fbreader and its registry entries. I have not tested this because I don't use FBReader via the registry.

Note that this will work for 0.8.4 with registry support added or with 0.8.14 with registry support built in.

When reading fb2 books I consistently run into one of the following problems:
1) Long press on pagebar sends iLiad's green light blinking and nothing happens.
2) Short press on pagebar gets treated as long presses after reading 200+ pages, I set timing for long presses to 2 sec, but it did not change anything.
3) Pressing pagebar to go back one page, and going forward two pages will get me over sticky page in most cases.
4) Sometimes pagebar will not get you past a certain page, even with trick 3). I have to tap stylys on the bottom of the page to get the next page. Stylys tap work always, fast and without green light ever blinking, so why pagebar is having these problems?

I did what Adam suggested and then I installed the stand-alone version. It seems to be working fine.
I have a /mnt/settings/registry.xml.orig and also a /mnt/settings/registry/registry.xml.old
I'm a little hesitant in using either, since the old FBReader reads the plucker files just fine.

Are you reading them using FBReader's own file manager? If so, it probably does not matter that registry.xml has references to a version of FBReader that is not there any more.

FBReader just keeps rebooting the Iliad, but will not get to main screen. It flashed white and then starts rebooting again.
Any help, or do I have to reflash?

Thanks Adam for another great app :-D

Unfortunately I have to make a bug report, but I don't know whether it is FBReader or Contentlister related. If I open a book with FBreader, close it by using one of the bottom hard keys and reopen it, the program cannot be closed anymore and leaves me with the book on the screen.

I guess it has something to do with the way the contentlister calls FBReader, and I further guess those problems cannot be solved unless iRex releases the Contentlister source code :-D

See FBReader - trap buttons?. The, not very elegant, fix for 0.8.4 is to add killall to run.sh (and then to exit using the Upper Left/Quit Button). FBReader is invoked by a shell script (fbreader.sh) in 8.1.14, so a similar approach may work here.

I want to be able to set the margins. I am not happy with the menu less version. Adam, can you please include the menu? It could be a separate program to configure FBreader. It does not need to be fbreaders own menu/options system.

not a page number, no.. but using the stylus to click on the page bar should get you away from page 1 fairly quickly
