f you are running 32 bit ubuntu then you will need to recompile from the source file as per the wiki entry.
Ahh, that may explain it. I'm using 32 bit ubuntu on the computer I tried this on. Yesterday, I tried it on a computer using 64 bit Mint, and it worked OK. I will try to recompile it on the 32 bit machine (although I was having problems compiling, which is why I tried the binary in the first place). Thanks for your help!

Sorry about the confusion. I don't post much here at mobile read any longer but when I upgraded to ubuntu 9.10 I had to tweak the source file for eb1150 just a little to get it to compile. Since it was different I figured that I would give the thread a quick update. Guess it was a little too quick

If you still have problems with it, post any questions and I will try to help you get it compiled and working.

Device: i have just ordered an Ebookwise 1150 on ebay and awaiting delivery
I just got delivery of my Ebookwise 1150 and have following queries to the experts:

I charged it for full two hours and again for some 30 mts more but i see the battery level as 10 hrs and 50 odd minutes with full charge display. Is this the normal duration battery would last (in some forums i read up to 15 hours charge)- in front of your given adaptor, i have used a 220 to 120 V convertor i had for a US made radio i use- hope this is ok.
I live in New Delhi and have analog home phone line on which a broadband modem is also connected through which i use my computer. when i connect the phone line to the reader, it starts dialing 1 858 678 8695 but is unsuccessful, what else i am supposed to prefix? is this a US number, in which case do i have to be able to dial international?
when i connect with USB wire and start to register the reader, it asks me DEVICE ID and am unable to locate it from the directions it gives me on the window display. on the reader, i only see "device no registered yet"
how to switch off the backlight when reading in day light? but that is at moment not important query, above are more important as i must register the device first.

not sure if this is the right forum/thread as i was unable to find a thread for starting help on this reader.

I think that's fine. I usually get only 10-11 hrs on a FULL charge myself using the 120 V provided adapter. The way you can lengthen that is by turning down the "brightness" of the background, however, if it's too dark then it may be harder to reader. The brightness/contract is "hidden" under the 'Rotated Book' icon at the top-right corner, just outside the LCD lit display.

Yes, the phone number the eBookwise unit calls using the telephone line option is a US (long-distance) number. It would be best to connect your unit to your computer (which has broadband internet access) using the USB cable, but only after you have installed the software USB driver from ETI available here. It's best that you read the New User (also called Newbie) post here which summarizes a lot of frequently asked questions and general tips.

You should read this post to find out how you can get your DEVICE ID by directly using your ebookwise connected to the internet and the ETI Servers. Try also reading their Quick Start Guide pdf which describes this process on page 6. In essence:
When you first connect the device to the server (by tapping "Bookstore" or "Online Bookshelf"), you should be prompted to go through registration. You should get an initial registration page offering you an option to create a new bookshelf or connect to an existing bookshelf. You should use the top option "create a new bookshelf" and proceed through registration.

Just read the above on how to lower your brightness and/or to completely switch it off. However, I have found it is very difficult to read that way, even in direct sunlight. You may be able to adapt to it, so give it a try, but don't accept the brightness off if the contrast setting makes the text 'invisible'. Consider this a friendly warning...

not sure if this is the right forum/thread as i was unable to find a thread for starting help on this reader.[/QUOTE]

The sticky post in this forum entitled "Attention: All eBookwise newbies!" is where the info you seek most resides.

Have fun exploring and reading!
