So, it will probably be at least another week before the next release.
Just send me a note as usual.

Thanks. I manage to build the thing.

hi rkomar, this is a patch to fix autorotate issue when rotation is set to 180 potrait orientation. This should enable both autorotation and using 180 orientation. The use case is for left handed viewing

I did some experiment regarding the cover.

If you put a png image on following path (where 1 is internal storage, and very large number for sdcard, and yes there is typo on chache)

Code:
internal memory/InkPad 2/system/cover_chache/1/books/sample.cbz.png
and put the book on

Code:
internal memory/InkPad 2/books/sample.cbz
,
it will display the cover in library menu.

Here are the screenshot and the file I used for experiment.



Calibre didn't send/create that file if you send cbz to the device. I'm not sure how complex it is, if after opening up a cbz/cbr,or any recognisable file for pbimageviewer, the app resize the first image and save it as png on that directory. So far the cache on my folder has 614px height, although some are smaller.

Recent read and recent book cache is in different folder, they use:
Code:
internal memory/InkPad 2/system/cache/desktop/cache.dat
rb denote recent book opened, and t denote recent book added. I successfully copied a thumbnail and put it with 1.png to display that as the first recent book thumbnail on the home screen. However, when I select different book, the system regenerate rb thumbnail from 1-9. The file that I copied as 1.png got removed and not renamed to 2.png. So the app potentially could set the most recent book thumbnail image after opening up a book. But if another book is selected, that image will get lost.

If I have time I will try play around with the code to see whether it can be done from the app.

I uploaded a new version of the application to the first post in this thread. It has many small updates:

- the first image is copied to the default book cover file so that it gets displayed when the device is shut down (if the device is configured that way in the system settings)

- added a menu item for enabling/disabling touch navigation (panning and page turns). The other touch events (menus, zooming, quitting,...) still work all of the time. Dutch, Japanese, Polish and German translations for the new menu items have been provided by @dtanis and @freeshadow. I'll update the translations for other languages later as they arrive.

- added (+) and (-) symbols to the toggling menu items so that it is clear what will happen. (+) means the feature will be enabled, and (-) means that it will be disabled.

- truncate the old log file on start up to save space in the filesystem

- added @trewelu's fix for autorotation with right/left-handed devices. Some devices have next/prev buttons on one side of the device (Inkpad, 60X/90X, 360), and can be oriented for right- or left-handed use. If the default orientation is Portrait-180 (i.e. left-handed), then autorotation sets the orientation to that layout for portrait images. On devices with next/prev buttons at the bottom, portrait images are always autorotated to Portrait-0.

- added @brucelee's cmake files, so that the application can be built using his SDK. He has also included the extra libraries required to build the applicaiton in his SDK. That makes it easy for anyone else to build the application themselves now. Thanks to @brucelee for that!

- added a new tap zone in the top-middle for bringing up the light-level dialog if the device supports it. It looks like @holysmoer has returned his Inkpad, so hopefully someone else will find this feature useful.

Small bug: If first image or last viewed image is landscape, the application won't auto rotate it during book opening. Pressing next then prev will auto rotate it.

When I changed firmware from 4.4.1217 to 4.4.1772, applications like coolreader or imageviewer stoped working. Is there any idea how to fix it? When I returned fw 1217 everything is OK but I want to use latest fw and use applications.

I don't have access to the 614, so it's hard for me to say what is broken. If you're willing to do some debugging with a shell terminal (either remotely with utelnetd or on the device with pbterm if the latter still works), then we could find out what the problem is. PM me if you are willing to try that.

Solved..I tried to load CoolReader for 360 and for firmware version 5.x and it worked! I do not understand why because I have version 4.4.x and when I loaded version for fw 4 it did not work. So now I read on CoolReader for fw 5.x and it is OK. Next I will try to resolve Imgaviewer. Maybe it will work with version for fw 5, too.

Edit: Imageviewer for ver. 5.x is working with firmware 4.4.1772 on my PB 614.

So I tried changing the reading direction from left-to-right to right-to-left in the configuration, but it doesn't seem to be working.. I've tried changing it by holding down the back/forward buttons too, but that isn't working either. Maybe I'm missing something?

It looks to be okay to me on my Touch Lux 623. Maybe you misunderstand what it is supposed to do? The buttons don't change their function (i.e. Page Forward button stays Page Forward). What changes is the direction that the image pans or jumps between panels when you press Forward or Back.

In Right-to-Left mode, new pages should be aligned with the Top-Right corner fully in view. When you press the Page Forward button, the image should pan to the left until it reaches the left border of the image. The next Page Forward press should pan the image down and back to the right border again. This is repeated until you get to the Bottom-Left corner. Pressing Page Back moves you backwards through the same steps.

If that isn't what you see, can you tell me in more detail what isn't working for you?

Ah, I see. I thought it was supposed to switch the back/forward buttons around. It's no big deal though, I was just wondering why it didn't behave the way I thought it would. Thanks for your help.

Okay, thanks for clearing that up. The built-in help information is very concise because I was trying to make it all fit on one page and to minimize work for translators, so it's not very clear in some cases. I'm sure that you're not the first to misinterpret what that option is for.

Hello,

first of all, thank you for your great application. It's everything i wished for... except it has a few issues on the last pocketbook, which is understandable considering its very new.

The first one is that i can't change the reading mode (left to right / right to left). Considering i read manga, i want to be able to read from left to right, unfortunately switching the setting doesnt modify anything and the manga still follow traditional occidental book order (whether its with touchscreen or buttons). This is kind of a big issue for me unfortunately

Also, the configuration is a little bit unresponive. When i chose to remove the title bar for example, i have to reboot the app in order to see the modifications. I also don't have the option to chose 16 bits as color depth, which is the color depth of the new Inkpad 3 even though i specified it in a 740.cfg put at G:\system\share\pbiv. The file still seems to be recognized, as modifting some parameters of it results in changes on the app

Also, i don't know if it's related to the app or not, but i would love to have thumbnails, unfortunately the explorer only shows a simple text as cover of the book in the explorer. do you know how to show cover in cbz files ?

thank you very much
