Hi Mark,

Adding a book to the "Digital Editions/Thumbnails" caused the book to not show up. That was easy

One thing I notice, however, is that browse folders doesn't show the proper title / author of these books unless I open them once.

Wow, that I call a quick response!

If you are comfortable with using a beta-pack (see here) you can add this code-snipped
Code:
	// setup custom ignoreDirs 
	//PARAMS.bootLog("ignoreDirs" + FskCache.diskSupport.ignoreDirs);
	var result, lines, i;
	try {
		if (FileSystem.getFileInfo(PARAMS.Core.config.userDontScanPath)) {
			result = PARAMS.getFileContent(PARAMS.Core.config.userDontScanPath);
			lines = result.split("\r\n");
			if (lines) {
				for (i=0; i<lines.length; i++) {
					if ((lines[i].indexOf("#")) === -1 && (lines[i].length)) {
						FskCache.diskSupport.ignoreDir(lines[i]);
					}
				}	
			
			}
		}
	}
	catch (ee) {
		PARAMS.bootLog("error applying ignoreDirs " + ee);
	};
in 300_bootstrap.js and place the configuration file "dontscan.cfg" into /database/system/PRSPlus/

I will neverless add the code to 300_Bootstrap.js with my next push.
(Sunday should be rainy here south of Vienna, so maybe its up tomorrow night)

That is to be expected, as the files meta-data isn't pre-scanned and added to the database (which is also used by BrowseFolders)

1) I suggest to use a proper file-name.

2) after opening, the book will also show up in regualr book-node, until the next restart or USB-connnect/disconnect cycle.

Ok, that shouldn't be too bad with a good filename.

Even better, the books don't show up in the regular book-node after opening them. They do show in the file history which suits me just perfectly.

I will eagerly await your build as I'll be more comfortable with an "official" build.

Thanks

Question to the developers:

Is there any information/progress for the flashcard-application?

The option to disable page-flashing would be nice to have. Sadly I have no glue where and how to search for such option. Any ideas?

Hi Analogus,

We don't want to add any more applications until we can get rid of the instability problem. Consequently, nothing has been done regarding a flashcard app.

As for page-flashing, it seems the trigger for this is deeply embedded in a system file. If it had been purely handled by javascript code we might have been able to stop it. But as it is, short of patching, nothing can be done about this either, sorry!

Sincerely,
Ben.

The excellent "Anki" app works if you need flash cards. I use it almost on a daily basis.

But this will not work - SONY PRS X50 line doesn't use ANDROID.
It uses a proprietary operating system on LINUX basis. It is not possible simple 'installing' apps or whatever else. That's the big disadvantage of SONY readers prior the T1.

Hi,

This is my first post on this forum, I am a very happy owner of a PRS-650 and have successfully installed PRS+ on it a week ago (2.1 alpha). The PRS-650 is beautifully finished hardware, the PRS+ completes it through all its finetuning options and extra actions and makes it a perfectly personalized device which in my opinion can compete well with the new PRS-T2 (From the video reviews it seems to me that Linux-based PRS+ is faster than the Android T1 and T2). I think all PRS+ contributors deserve great credit for its development, and I hope PRS+ will continue to evolve over a long time. I am not a Linux specialist but I hope I can contribute by giving feedback on the PRS+ applications.

Regarding this I have two suggestions for the Calendar function:

1. The keyboard that pops up when specifying a task. I feel that the very small keys (probably because their number is very large since apart from alphabetic characters symbol keys are included as well) make it very difficult to enter a text which contains most of the characters intended, in many cases I mistype or do not get the characters in at all. Would it be possible to use the standard sony-style keyboard here (or a close equivalent) with the large square keys (= maximum touch area per key)? That one I can use to type at very high speeds. I think it is sufficient to have only the standard alphabet keys on the main layout. The type speeds counts particlularly for a calender function since one is generally in a rush at the end of a meeting when the data has to be entered.

2. Would it be possible to add a task for a selectable number of days in a row? That would be a very useful addition to me.

Best regards,
Jurjen

@bunjibear

I do not have this problem on my 350 (latest ZORK). I presume this could be releated to specific books.

Suggestions:

1) Do you have the latest version of PRS+ or/and ZORK? If not, upgrade!

2) Did you test it with other books? Try it if not.

3) HOW do you delete the book? WITHIN the book or OUTSIDE the book? Try deleting books from outside (over file explorer or collections)

Yes, I have latest versions installed and have tried it with other books. I normally delete within book (last page of book). Will try outside book as you recommend. Thanks

Hi: It was recommended I ask the question here from http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...30#post2214430

I ended up running the flasher from the internal drive and then external drive on the Sony PRS600.

Now the problem is:
The flasher runme says.

....connecting
....checking recovery system
...error 601
...press any key to continue
which then just boots out

on the ereader: it says
updating firmware now
but it is just hung...how long should it take?

the computer recognizes drive I: the internal drive but does not recognize SD drives.
I cannot copy anything onto to drive I. It says"please insert a disk into removable disk (I"

Please help
Thanks
