I made some edits to the Mobi2Mobi Mac Install page per some issues the goodbadDeb had. Namely:

Xcode Tools apparently isn't always on install Disk 2.

Also, there are some dependency prompts that come up when you install the Image::Size module. So, I just made sure to note that these need to be installed.

There was a report of success on the Amazon Forums on Sunday for your Mobi2Mobi Mac work.

I've noticed that although the mobi2mobi scripts seem to work fine in most cases on a Mac, I can‘t seem to change the author string on any .prc created by Stanza (it gives me an error message). I can change the title, but not the author.

I don't think Stanza plays nice.

Even though I use Windows, as an experiment, I took a one page text file and used Stanza to convert it to a .prc and .mobi file. I then tried to open the files in MP Reader, both showed as corrupted and wouldn't open.

I used the Mobi2Mobi GUI to open the .prc file and filled in the metadata. The conversion worked but I still can't open the file in MP Reader.

I opened the .mobi file and filled in the metadata and this one won't even convert.

Here's the really fun part. The .prc and .mobi files created in Stanza, won't open in Stanza. This was with the current version: 1.0.0-beta13 build #1:375.

I know nothing about scripts except for what I have been able to pic up the last couple of days and your wiki is sooo helpful. I am on a mac and have downloaded the scripts, python, x11, xcode, macports and have followed the directions for kindlepid but what I get is-

-bash: kindlepid: command not found

Can anyone clue me into what I am doing wrong?

Are you doing this immediately after the "sudo ln -s" command (in the same Terminal session)? If so, then under Linux (and I assume Mac OS) you would first need to issue the command:
Code:
rehash
to get the new command registered. Or just open a new Terminal, as in the Visual Guide.

Wow... no where near enough information.

What directory are you in. Did you create a link. What is your path? Did you have any problems when you followed the directions on setting this up?

Hi there. Like the previous poster, I too am having trouble with the instructions. I followed everything to the letter, but am having trouble with the very first command. This is what I get after entering the first command.

~ christina$ cd /usr/local/bin
-bash: cd: /usr/local/bin: No such file or directory

Is there something that I need other than the directions are stating. My husband added python because he didn't think my computer was running it, but that hasn't helped the situation. Please treat me like the clueless for whom you posted how to access the command line. I can take it

Thanks

Thanks

Actually I think Deb had this problem too. Apparently /usr/local/bin doesn't exsit be default.

instead do...

cd /usr/local

If that works do

sudo mkdir bin

Then do

cd /usr/local/bin

Make sure /usr/local/bin is in your path by going to /etc and edit the paths file...

You can do the following at the command line...

cd /etc
sudo pico paths

Here is what mine contains:

/usr/bin
/bin
/usr/sbin
/sbin
/usr/local/bin

Then continue on with creating the symbolic link.

Nope, that didn't work either.

christina$ cd /usr/local
-bash: cd: /usr/local: No such file or directory

I ended up going ahead with the scripts even though that first command didn't work. When I added "python" in front of the kindlepid command, I finally got the PID.

I am now attempting to kindlefix the sample book on the kindlefix wiki (The Natural) and am having similar problems.

~/downloads christina$ kindlefix Natural-583.prc F######Y
-bash: kindlefix: command not found

I can't get it to recognize the kindlefix command. Any tips on that topic?

Try:
Code:
python kindlefix.py Natural-583.prc 'F######*#Y'
The kindlefix.py script then needs to be in the downloads directory (with Natural-583.prc).

So you don't have a /usr/local either? Geeze. What version of OS x are you running?

You can type

python kindlefix Natural-583.prc F######Y

I'm using 10.4.11 and the above doesn't work either. Go figure.

Thanks. Tried that and got this
