A lot of people has done this and posted the instructions
too. The problem is not getting those files to work, but the
lack of proper support from Kobo.

Have you ever seen what the current version on MS Windows is?

Qt is supposedly an architecture agnostic programming
framework (with minor tweaks here and there), but Kobo keeps
ignoring proper GNU/Linux updates.

For you see, GNU is not a hobbyist platform. It was even
publicized the gaming platform of 2013 by the very gaming
industry (PS3 is Linux based anyway). The burden of making
things work properly (i.e., 64bit support, etc.) is on the
side of Kobo, not ours (although I already offered my help
for free some time ago and had no response).

That's why we paid for this "open" device in the first
place: usability!.
