Hello. What tools do I need to compile this on my own? Can I do it on a windows machine?

I have a UI question. Is there a gesture to ensure a PgDn / PgUp in a list of files longer than the height of screen? A click goes to a file; a swap gesture moves the viewing window one or two filenames lower. I do not know how to easily have PgDn / PgUp. Is this possible?

I try to compile kindle explorer on Ubuntu 12.10. I have installed gtk 2.0 and the CodeSourcery package. However, I do not seem to get all things right:

- I installed arm-2012.09-64-arm-none-linux-gnueabi.bin
- instead of arm-linux-gnueabi-g++ I have arm-none-linux-gnueabi-g++
- pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0 works fine
- I get warnings on cross-compile
- I get errors that all the -l libraries in linker are not found

Thank you for any help on this issue.

http://drpbox.knetconnect.com/KeK/ar...ux-gnu.tar.bz2 <-- Toolchain

Put the libs from your kindle in your toolchains include/libs folder?

BUT NOT THE LIBC ONE!!! IT WILL BREAK YOUR TOOLCHAIN!!!


Is not the 2012.09 Hardfloat by default? I forget. You need softfloat. Linky above

You appear to be trying to build against your system libs (not arm) that won't work for the kindle... REF: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=189372

2) Yes - although not a project for beginners.

The native cross-compile toolchain for windows is on the same server, filed right next to the Linux one that twobob gave you a link to above.

windows? Yikes. I have a play with doing that one windows again only the other day.
The gtk stuff is a nice simple bundle but the fiddling with paths and such is very non obvious on there.

Good luck!

I really like the ease of use of this explorer app. I can quickly view/edit files and start kterm. Thanks.

I start explorer from KUAL - the upcoming 0.5 provisional version. KUAL captures the standard error output of all the extensions it starts. This is what it captures for explorer (many times)
Code:
(explorer:2682): Gtk-CRITICAL **: gtk_list_store_set_sort_column_id: assertion `list_store->default_sort_func != NULL' failed
Just fyi.

Hello,

Just to report: I successfully modified and compiled Kindle Explorer to suit my needs. I hold my books in /mnt/us/books and needed Kindle Explorer ONLY to copy what I want to read to /mnt/us/documents.

I am looking now to modify the glade file(s) in order to have wider sliders with the file list window, since in the current design they are impossible to use by touch.

Thanks to @twobob for the support.

Welcome.

I am knee deep in trying to get decent support for the lower devices.

Good luck

I am trying to change MainWindow.glade in order to allow finger aim on scrollbars under Paperwhite. The only success I had was to introduce a border-width property with value 25 under GtkScrollWindow. It is satisfactory, but not great. Not even good. At least you can aim the scrollbar.

Is there a possibility to have actual buttons on the toolbar, with PgUp/PgDn functionality? This would be great. It allows you to actually see what you have there. When dragging the scrollbar you cannot read while dragging.

Report on PgUp and PgDn buttons: success.

Instead of playing with the scrollbars and make them touchable, the following idea works as expected:
- use two buttons in the taskbar, for PgUp and PgDn;
- link the buttons with new functions in FilesModel;
- these functions are responsible with working on the GtkAdjustment object coming from gtk_tree_view_get_vadjustment();
- circular loop implemented on PgUp and PgDn.

Everything works as expected. Very nice.

Sounds nice - are you planning to share your findings, please?

Personal variation of Kindle Explorer

I modified and compiled Kindle Explorer 1.50 to suit my needs, as follows:
- my books are in /mnt/us/books, set as startup folder
- implemented a function to copy the current file to /mnt/us/documents
- implemented PgUp and PgDn buttons with circular loop
- removed all graphics, to conserve space
- toolbar buttons: DirUp, Copy, About, Exit, PgUp, PgDn

I attach two archives: modified sources and installation archive.
Again: Thanks to twobob for the support in the compile tools setup phase.
