Elipsa crashing and corrupting notebooks

It happened to me twice that the Elipsa stopped responding to my input while I had a notebook open. After forcing a restart, I could not open that notebook anymore. Probably its file is corrupted. Has anyone experienced the same? It is very frustrating because I have already lost two important notebooks with tens of pages.

Always regularly export locally to docx or txt. It's called backup.

You can also diectly backup the nebo files via USB.

I know what backup is. It never happened to me with any other device that the device itself corrupted files this frequently. I wonder if my device is defective or this is to be expected with the Elipsa.

Sounds defective to me. I’ve not had this happen to my Elipsa notebooks. You should give Kobo CS a call.

In the meantime, here’s what I do to prevent Elipsa crashes (of which I have more than my fair share) from corrupting or losing my notebooks.

1) Plug your Elipsa into your computer, and select computer connectivity on the Elipsa.
2) Open the mounted Kobo drive.
3) Look for .nebo files. These are your notebooks.
4) Drag your .nebo files into a folder/directory on your computer.
5) Do this often.

Unlike the built in exporting options, you can drag these notebook files back to your Kobo in the event you have to factory reset and be back up and running right where you left off. The problem here is that while Kobo backs up annotations to the cloud, they don’t backup notebooks. It’s a serious shortcoming IMO.

Lastly, you might want to download the Nebo journaling app and open your corrupt notebooks into that software. The Nebo app is more robust than the barebones Nebo support on the Elipsa. I can’t guarantee anything, but it’s worth a shot to see if you can salvage something.

I'd like Nebo on Linux.

I have a Wacom tablet working on Linux Mint and my grandson has a Linux Laptop with Wacom screen, though it's an old Lenovo X201.

Those sound like great fits for Nebo. Have you tried installing Wine to run Nebo? I'm not sure Wine would support the digitizer properly, though.

I do have Word 2003 on WINE (occasional tests). Windows drivers do work on my Vbox VMs, even a Sony USB web cam that only works on older Windows. I'm sure both the serial and USB (Bamboo) Wacom tablets work via VM.

I'll not go the route of Nebo on Wine or on a VM.

Both models of Wacom work on The GIMP (and on Wacom on Lenovo X201 screen), but I don't do drawing on PC.

Nebo's predecessor, MyScript Stylus, used to work very well with my Wacom monitor on Linux through Wine, but I haven't managed to get Nebo to work with it. MyScript Stylus was a general-purpose handwriting entry program unlike Nebo, so it probably interacts with the digitizer in a very different way.

There are several native handwriting entry programs for Linux Mint in the Software Manager GUI. Really I only use WINE for a few things so ancient they don't work on Win7 or win 10 64 bit, and in the last couple of years not even them (old engineering tools with no new windows version, a couple of the programmers are dead).
