I have the same problem with my UPS. I swore off sending anything that requires signature to the house because the failure rate to ring the bell is close to a 100%.

My new laptop arrived and is all set up. I now have a dual-boot Debian 8 / Windows 7 setup, so I will be able to test things on an actual Windows system instead of just in Wine.

I've attached an updated patch_kobo_4039084.zip that includes the missing libnickel.so.1.0.0 patches from 4.3.8966, an updated `Force user line spacing in KePubs` patch that should work with more books, and an updated 4.3.9084.sh script which should give a more useful error message if the downloaded firmware is missing or corrupt.

Thank you Oren for doing the rest of the patches. I'll start a thread sometime soon and try to explain how I update those patches which make changes to function calls, such as `Freedom to advanced fonts control`.

Here are the missing/updated patches for those who want to update libnickel.so.1.0.0 via copy/paste instead of downloading the zip:

#  0.7 0.725 0.75 0.775 0.8 0.825 0.85 0.875 0.9 0.925 0.95 0.975 1.0 1.025 ...

`ePub fixed/adjustable top/bottom margins`
Spoiler:
Code:
<Patch>
patch_name = `ePub fixed/adjustable top/bottom margins`
patch_enable = `no`
# patch_group = `ePub padding-bottom alternatives`
#
## This patch sets the @page margin sizes in epubs, overriding any @page margin
## set in the book's CSS stylesheet (but not in the XPGT stylesheet, see below).
##
## By default the top and bottom margins are set to be adjustable, their size
## similar to the left/right margin size set by the adjustment slider. There
## are options to set the top and/or bottom margin to a fixed size instead.
##
## Note that @page margins are seperate from (and overlap) both the body margins
## set in the book and the left/right margins set from the adjustment slider,
## and are added to any page margins set in the Adobe XPGT stylesheet if the
## book has one (e.g. page-template.xpgt). For this reason you might want to
## consider using the Modify ePub Calibre plugin to remove any body margins and
## XPGT stylesheet margins before sideloading the book, or perhaps enabling the
## `Ignore ePub Adobe XPGT stylesheet (page-template.xpgt)` patch.
##
## Also note that a side-effect of this patch is that the body padding-bottom is
## removed from the built-in stylesheet, which means that there will no longer
## be a blank line added automatically at the end of chapters.
##
## See at the bottom of the patch for replacement values that can be used to
## tune the size of the margins to suit different devices and reading modes.

Yay thanks Geoff. Now I can update when I go back home in about a week.

Thanks also to oren, only reason I held off updating was the missing patches. Still appreciate the effort you put in

The reason I put off updating was because I was on vacation.

I want to give oren a big thank you for stepping in.
