EBView 0.3.6 for iLiad

It's a wonderful morning. I woke up and tried to build ebview again. Several months ago, I built it but failed to run it on iLiad. Today, I tried to compile with different combination of options and then... I succeeded.

This is EBView for iLiad. it's a EPWING format reader, mostly for dictionary. It's widely used in Japan (I suppose), but support many language, as long as you have proper dictionary. It's far more advanced, powerful, and complicated than mobi-reader. Besides, many large dictionary on CDROM can be converted to EPWING format with proper tools.

How to install:
1. unpack the attachment to "programs" dir in MMC/SD. There should be a "ebview" dir now.
2. grab needed libs from Midori or StarDict package that I released yesterday. To find which lib is missing, start mrxvt, execute "cd /media/card/programs/ebview" and "./run.sh", and it will show missing lib. Copy required lib file to "ebview/lib" dir
3. to install dictionary, put your EPWING format dictionary in any directory, goto "Tools" in menubar, then goto "Dictionary Groups", add dictionary path, set depth, and search dictionary.
4. xepdmgr contributed by Antartica is required.

If you don't understand what I am saying, try to install a ebview on a Linux desktop and learn its UI.

Another good job again!

謝謝,這又是一個傑作!
安裝完全沒問題,成功!
但是有小小的問題:
雖然可以安裝自己想要的字典,
在應用上,還是沒辦法像 mobipocket 的字典一樣,
可以長駐在頁面上,隨點隨查。
硬體按鍵沒有辦法使用來上下閱讀,
如果內文比較長的話,
還是要靠 wacom 筆來點,
算是美中不足了。
奇怪了,這麼好的一個東西,怎麼沒有人回應?
