I don't think you have to resize pictures. I don't even know if it should be png-files. I'll try and see.

Anyway I'll document the steps taken and the files copied and drop it in a box.
I just kept to the dimensions and file type that Sergey used. I did change the color mode to grayscale as it is used in black&white devices. I am using the image and it is all working fine now. The changes, that I can see, with "fmon" added, are mostly to restore the original Launcher script.

So I'm a newbie to this whole "modified kobo" thing, but I am curious to give it a try and get some cool tweaks going.

I followed the steps to the letter in your OP, on firmware 2.8.1, however I am not sure where I am supposed to find Launcher.
Is it my fault or shall we blame the new fw?

The OP describes only the installation of the file monitor. I think you have to install the Kobo launcher first, and then the file monitor.

Edit: I just read your other post in the night mode thread. If it is only about triggering the night mode, you don't need the launcher. Look at the "on_start.sh example" of the OP and apply it to the night mode.

Thanks. I noticed in the OP that it referenced KoboLauncher, so I did try to install that as well. I followed the instructions for both posts but nothing showed up on my Kobo at all.

I will try to modify the on_start.sh to add the Night Mode, however its just the first of a few mods I would like to add.

It would be nice if there was a central location for procedures, directions and apps needed to add tweaks to the Kobos (besides the Sticky) for a new modder.

new version of fmon

Hi!

The new version of kobo file monitor is available.

The main improvement is that on_start.sh script now scans and executes all the *.sh files in the .kobo/fmon directory. It helps to avoid conflicts in on_start.sh script (some people will make their's own launchers and publish them). And there is no need to edit on_start.sh each time.

2 The second main improvement - now we have "all in one" KoboRoot.tgz.

Manual and download link are updated (see the first post).

Great work.

Step 6 & 7 of the instructions have us plugging the USB back in, is that still necessary?

Also, any recommendations on updating an existing fmon installation?

Luck;
Ken

Ken, I don't see the launcher icon on the bookshelf without steps 6 and 7. These steps update kobo library index.

I want to find out another way of library index update. Probably some script...

2. No special recomendations. Just install fmon (or new version of kobo launcher that also includes fmon). You also need to move your commands from on_start.sh into the separate sh-files in the fmon directory.

You don't need to uninstall anything before installation. The new installation overwrites old files.

Not sure if this will be any help or if it even works anymore, but there was an article a while back about triggering the usb connect/disconnect when copying files using ftp. See
http://a3nm.net/blog/fnacbook_kobo_more_hacking.html for how the re-index eas triggered. When I played with this, I got the Connect/Cancel dialogue, hit Connect and then it disconnected and went into the processing screen a few seconds later.

Regards,
David

Hi

first of all Thank you for your work, I tried Kobo files monitor to launch night mode.
I simply installed KoboRoot.tgz then copied a nightmode.png and created in the fmon folder a nightmode.sh file:

Quote:
$root/.kobo/fmon/fmon $root/nighmode.png $root/.kobo/nightmode.sh >> $root/.kobo/fmon/fmon.log.txt 2>&1 &
after a reboot tapping the icon in home toggles nightmode as expected, my question is:
It is normal that a few seconds after the tap kobo also opens the png?

I attach the nightmode.png to the message if someone likes it.

eXistenZ,

1. Thanks for png
2. It is absolutely normal. I can't make nickel to not open png. I can just monitor that png was opened.

Actually, I think it gives the process a little extra visual effect. The image is not there for very long.

Many thanks!

Don't make the file in windows! You would get the wrong end-of-line codes.

Content reboot.sh:
#!/bin/sh
reboot

I've attached the file.
