Hi all and Thanks lunohod for your work!

I'd like to try out fbreader, if I got it right there are two options: installing the modified firmware or adding the fbreader files as explained in lunohod's post

Could someone please provide detailed step by step instructions on how to perform this (specially on how to link /usr/lib/libfb2.so to /home/lib/libfb2.so)?

I have also a terminology question: Does hotswapping mean that you can choose which reader to use just by copying the pertinent libfb2.so to the /home/lib/libfb2.so directory?

The second option would be to install the modified firmware.

In that case: Is it still necessary with the latest lunohod FW versions to create a lib directory in the internal flash and copy the libfb2.so into it -as described in lunohod's first post? or are this modifications already coded into the modified firmware?

Thanks all for your help

Eventually I figured it out by myself. I installed the newer FW posted in this thread and lunohod's scripts. Now switching between coolreader and fbreader works like a charm.

(this is the modification of the recent original lbook fw)
* create a directory in the internal flash named 'lib'
* copy this file into lib directory: libfb2.so

After that, fb2 and fb2.zip files will be opened with the fbreader plugin. Other formats supported by fbreader can also be viewed, but you need to zip them first and rename the resulting archive to *.fb2.zip.

You can also change some settings in the .FBReader/ui.xml file in the internal flash, here is my sample config: ui.xml


There is a possibility to hot-swap the fb2 plugin with just swapping the libfb2.so file in the lib directory. Here are the plugin from the original lbook fw: libfb2.so and the new beta version of the same plugin: libfb2.so
Dear Lunohod:

I am interested in finding out more about porting FBReader into a Hanlin V3 and about porting FB Reader into a whole new line of eBook Readers. I also am hoping you have some experience in porting eReader.

If you can, can you leave me a private message with your email address and I then can give you mine!

Could you please give me some pointers where to start to manipulate existing Hanlin firmwares to enable new feature like the addition of fbreader as you did.

I have, I really like the feature being able to format the screen output dynamically(get rid of the damn hyphen!). However, I would like to be able to checkout DRM ebooks from my local library as well.

When the Live version 0.2> is stable enough I would give it a try again.
