Have you considered to have something like X11 interface? - http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=170436

OK, will try.

And what about having more user friendly interface like X11?

KPV started on the K3, where there's no X11. So much for the history - and I might add to that that I don't particularly like X11 as an API, find it somewhat over-designed especially for the context of low-resource embedded devices (as the Kindles are).

Yes, I'm a bit opinionated about that.

That bit about being over-designed is even more true for Qt, which is used by the reading app mentioned. I just don't trust it enough. That's where my like for C shines through, and my dislike for C++ (especially for the wrangled C++ of Qt).

All of this is personal opinion, however, not necessarily shared by all developers. But KOReader fills a niche, I think.

PS/Addendum: X11 isn't user-friendly at all. You're probably talking about Qt, but that's a resource hog. There's nothing stopping KOReader from getting more user-friendly with its current UI scheme.

I'm talking about X11 in Hacked Up Reader. Same interface was in Hanlin Coolreader, in my opinion it has all what is needed. And you are right, Qt is just a crap.

Oh dang, thanks for the correction. I see what you mean. Yes, a possibility, but then you could just use HackedUpReader :-) But when you look at our Widget infrastructure, you'll see that we can do a lot, too. And there's my strong like towards Lua as the language to do it... Plus, in the end I'd like to have keyboard support and extend support to all Kindles - including those without X11. Which are still many - given that the K4 doesn't have it.

I don't necessarily go into absolute statements, programmers tend to be opinionated and there's no exception with me. So, Qt lovers, don't feel offended ;-)

Thumbs up

Thank you for doing this, I have the latest build running now.
Some questions, if you don't mind.

Does the reader need some time to index, or should I see all books straight away?
I have about 500 azw and mobi, a handful of epub and pdf, nearly all drm stripped.

Is it possible to:

Set a default font that applies each time I open a book (epub or mobi or doc) At present it resets to a sans serif font each time I close the application and restart, selecting last read.

Change the font size?

Change the margins?

Is there any integration with collections manager? Not a major problem, I will be using the reader mainly for pdfs, and only have a few.

Oh, and next time I get lost in the file manager what is the path to the documents please?

Click at the bottom some options there... Font weight, Size, Gamma, Boldness

Unsure about the font permanence etc... EDIT: Hmm yeah looks like they are currently not "stored", oddly

I didn't see a margin thingy.

docs are /mnt/us/documents

../ should take you "up"

Thanks twobob

Just wanted to announce that our gettext integration is working right now:
https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/koreader/

Thomass has added Turkish translation to koreader. We also have Chinese translation. If you would like to help adding more tranlations, feel free to send a request in transifex so we can add you as coordinator

For that matter I decommissioned a desktop box running X that had less memory and disk space than the Kindle Paperwhite in only 2009.

I installed KOReader with KPV Booklet (maybe this is the one that puts the epubs at documents in the home screen). I think it is extremelly fantastic! Thanks a lot, developers!

I would only like to know if there's a way to open a PDF with the Kindle PW native reader instead of with KOReader, because sometimes I need to highlight.

Thanks!

Yeah, but Kindles are also running Java program permanently (which is, obviously, hungry to memory and CPU resources ). Did you have the same experience on your old desktop box?
