I reapplied my patches and everything is working as it did before for me. Have you double-checked? You might have forgotten to activate the Spacer patch.

Thanks, but which one is the "spacer patch"?

'Reduce top/bottom page spacer'

Check if you enabled this patch.

Somewhere along the way the cygwin part of kobopatch.sh seems to moved into the Linux case statement, so when you run kobopatch.sh on cygwin nothing happens. Most annoying .

The following patch moves it back to where it should be.

gestions des séries avec le nouveau firmware

Bonjour,
j'ai installé le nouveau firmware sur ma kobo aura H2o. Visiblement l'affichage des séries ne fonctionne pas totalement.
J'aurai deux questions:
1 - quel utilitaire choisir pour explorer la base de données de la Kobo
2 - j'essaye de télécharger "seriesmeta" sur mon PC, mais Windows la rejette car elle contiendrait un virus.
Merci de vos réponses

Why not just use the .bat file under Windows proper?

Ok, sorry
Hello
I installed the new firmware on my kobo Aura H2O. Obviously the series display doesn't work totally.
I'll have two questions:
1 - which utility to choose to explore the Kobo database
2 - I try to download "seriesmeta" on my PC, but Windows rejects it because it would contain a virus.
Thank you for your answers

Yes, the series display does work totally. You do not need to explore the Kobo database. seriesmeta is no a virus. WHat AV are you using?

What to do is use Calibre with the current version of the Kobo Utilities plugin. Select all the eBooks on your H2O from the library. Then update the series metadata and that will get the series tab working with the book on your H2O.

Progress Bar

Fairly new to Kobo, got a Clara HD at Xmas. Have updated and patched and all works well. A quick question, is there anywhere in the patches to increase the size of the progress bar at the bottom, or maybe to add a percentage read figure at the end of it?

Not a biggy or desperately needed, just curious.

Cheers

I steadily apply the Kobo Patches, which really is a great thing, many thanks for it!
One of my favourite patches is the "Make full justification the default" in "KEPUB stylesheet additions" of libnickel.so.1.0.0.yaml. My setting is this:
Code:
    # Example 1: Make full justification the default:
  - ReplaceString: {Offset: 467, Find: "/******************************************/", Replace: "body{text-align:justify                    }", MustMatchLength: yes}
    #
and I receive this message:
Code:
 kobopatch.ReplaceString index=9 line=993
          |         ReplaceString(467, "/******************************************/", "body{text-align:justify                    }")
          |         could not apply patch "KePub stylesheet additions": line 993: inst 9: ReplaceString: could not find specified bytes
        --> could not apply patch "KePub stylesheet additions": line 993: inst 9: ReplaceString: could not find specified bytes
I checked what I could but could not find the error. Can someone, please, help?
All other patches work fine!

Edit: In earlier patches the offset was 0x023B. Does this matter?
Edit': Thje same error happens when I try to activate #Example 2
