Hello! I am the owner of PocketBook Touch HD 2. I unpacked the last firmware 5.17 and looked at its contents. Especially for new devices able to change the temperature of the backlight appeared 2 new functions: GetFrontlightColor and SetFrontlightColor. They are similar to features and GetFrontlightState SetFrontlightState which change the brightness of the backlight. It would be cool if the new version of Coolreader has support for these functions. For example, scrolling on the right side would change the brightness of the backlight, and scrolling on the left side of the backlight temperature. Or at least support for increasing and decreasing the temperature of the backlight using tap zones.

Hello, everyone. I am recompiled latest CoolReader for support of change of temperature of the backlight. It is relevant only to users of PocketBook Touch HD 2 (631 Plus in Russia) and Inkpad 3 (740 in Russia).
The principle is as follows. If you swipe up and down on the right half of the screen, the backlight brightness changes. If you swipe up down on the left side of the screen the backlight temperature changes.
I also changed the extensions.cfg default CoolReader needs to open the files, fb2 and epub. He also replaced the skin for Pocket Book 631 with the skin from dizone (4pda.ru).
https://yadi.sk/d/NP0ahbGi3SFD2V

Who CoolReader is already installed you can just change the file \system\share\cr3\bin\cr3-pb.app in the book to a file with the same location from the archive.

Cool
You still need to update the SDK. You need a file libinkview.so from the latest firmware?

If you can, sure, please post the library.

I've made CR3 dynamically load the functions from libinkview only if they're available though. So, in theory, I wouldn't need it. I still need some feedback on this as my Touch Lux 3 doesn't have the firmware or hardware to test.
Also, @zelenukhin, if you want you can make pull requests in GITHUB. This way you could get your changes in the OTA updates.

So... If anyone wants to help and test the DEV build, please get it from HERE or OTA update from the dev branch and let me know if vertically swiping on the left side of the screen changes the color of the front light.

I assumed the color functions work like the brightness ones (values between 0 and 100). Having no concrete documentation or inkview header... things might crash.

Changes in this build:
- vertically swiping on the left side of the screen changes front light color
- updated the pb631 skin
- minor changes to the pb626 skin

Please let me know if it works.
Thanks.

Unhappy CSS-problem in CR3

Hi there

I have a little problem with CR3 on PB TL3. If I load an epub with e.g.

.dropcap {
float: left;
font-size: 3.9em;
line-height: 0.9em;
margin-right: 5pt;
margin-bottom: -0.1em;
font-style: normal;
font-family: "Dearest_outline.ttf";
font-weight: lighter;
color: #000000;
}

in the stylesheet, it shows already the initial in the specified font and size, but it doesn't flow left; instead it places the initial correct but just in the first line, second line is placed under the initial with a slightly bigger bottom gap.

In Sigil the above constrution works pretty well as it should - initial flows left of the first three lines and 4th line is placed under initial...
Same on installed AdobeReader on the PB TL3

Could anyone help to save this issue please?

I've updated the SDK @ github to FW5.17.
Unfortunately it seems like it's not backwards compatible with FW5.14 so I'll continue building CR3 with an older version of the SDK.

I've compiled CR3 with the new SDK and it crashed with:
PHP Code:
/mnt/ext1/system/share/cr3/bin/cr3-pb.appsymbol lookup error: /mnt/ext1/system/share/cr3/bin/cr3-pb.appundefined symbol_device_keyboard 
Which is an issue from the system headers/libs.


To keep things simple for everyone, I've created 2 branches in github:
- 5.12 - which I'll continue using
- 5.17 - which is currently synced with master

The CR3 renderer probably doesn't properly handle that particular CSS code. Unfortunately I don't intend to go into that.



EDIT: I've also added support for SDK 5.17 to the CR3 source code. There are some renamed defines which screw things up. For the moment this can be found in the dev branch only.


EDIT 2: Video showing how the vertical swiping looks (brightness + color): youtube
I kind of want that reader now ) Looks pretty good.

These are already requested features that I doubt I'll work on. At least not too soon. Sorry.
