Manually mod of fmon links

Can someone tell me how to modify/add/restore links to use fmon.
I have tried to change the png for koreader and now nickel only open the picture but not the program, or worst not show the png in library at all.

Have you deleted the .png file using nickel, so that it is properly removed from the database and the library? Then added the .png file to the directory before .kobo, the directory that has .kobo in it. Then properly eject the device from your PC and disconnect the USB cable. You should then see your device processing the media, if not then restart Nickel. Now you should have the PNG image as an icon on Nickel's home page. Selecting that icon should bring up a full page image. Then you return to Nickel's home page. Now connect the USB cable again and copy the KoboRoot.tgz, from the Koreader download zip, into your device's .kobo directory. When you then eject and disconnect the USB cable, you should see the "updating" message on your device.

Luck;
Ken

Is there no way without installing KoboRoot.tgz again?

The KoboRoot.tgz in the Koreader download package is only there to install the fmon connection to the .png. In this case we are redoing the complete process that makes it so Koreader is working with fmon.

One of the advantages to using another launcher for Koreader, like Tshering's great "Kobo Start Menu" (KSM) is that you can do without using fmon, to start Koreader, and the koreader.png and KoboRoot.tgz are not used.

By the way, why are you worried about installing KoboRoot.tgz again?

Ken

By the way, I'm experimenting with scripts to learn how all are working.

Well, the Kobo devices are an excellent example of the advantages of scripting over a commitment to compiled code only. You should become acquainted with the GitHub repository. The Koreader project would be a good place to start.
