Ok, it is working . Do you get zoom controls? Take a view to man xpdf somewhere ; even if zoom can not be controled from the screen, we should be able to control it from the ssh console by launching in -remote mode.

Ahh, my machine is in the lot to be shipped tomorrow.

Nah, it just means you can brick your Iliad without the need to type weird command lines first.

what happens if you don't start it in -fullscreen mode?

and, second, did someone already do a "modprobe hid" and "modprobe keybdev" for usb keyboards?

This shell script should patch er_registry such that afterwards .sh scripts can be executed from the gui. As my Iliad is disconnected, I'd like someone to try it out. (Somebody who knows what he's doing! This may brick your Iliad! Double-check your gui doesn't break, or patch /home/root/start.sh so you can login without gui afterwards.)

Code:
#!/bin/sh

REGFILE=/mnt/settings/er_registry.txt
BACKUP=$REGFILE.backup

if /bin/grep -q 'SHELL' $REGFILE
then
  echo "Already patched -- doing nothing"
  exit 1
fi

cp -a $REGFILE $BACKUP
sed 's/\(^uaIDList=.*$\)/\1;SHELL/g' $BACKUP > $REGFILE
cat >>$REGFILE <<EOF
[SHELL]
category=viewer
arguments=<FILENAME>
exec=/bin/sh -c
xResourceName=moomoo
channel=77
extensions=SH;sh
EOF

The last version (pdflatex from antartica) appeared here
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=250

The first version of the pdf idea appears in post 201 of the thread, and then in posts 234-237-241-244 it is developed.

It will evolve more, I'd bet. I miss icons .

Note that ali has created a thread to post "release" versions for end users, named "Hacks for Users".
