probably not, as I my eyes are not adapted to the highlight tone of Aura HD as well. Maybe it is just me who am a bit fastidious about it!

Ever since updating my KA1 to one of the more recent firmwares (4.4.9298), when I press on a word to look it up in a dictionary in KOreader, it no longer works. It simply gives me a message about there being no definition for that entry, even when I know that there most definitely is.

Had hoped that the most recent Kobo FW would right that wrong. Unfortunately, not.

I have tried various nightly builds of KOreader. Have tried reinstalling KOreader. Have tried reinstalling the dictionaries... All to no avail.

When I press dictionary settings, the names of the dictionaries show up. So they are there, but non-functional for some reason.

The exact same dictionaries work just perfectly on my original 6" Aura running FW 3.19.5761. They also used to work on my KA1 when I was running older firmware with the old homescreen.

Not sure what has changed or if anything can be done about it. I would like to keep the new firmware on my KA1 because of the better accuracy it provides when running Nickel which I need to do for reading in Japanese. But I miss the lookup capabilities of KOreader when it comes to Chinese.

Can't help you, but here is my little story:

Same thing happened to me a week ago with my KA1, when I decided to update nickel (I believe it was 4.6.9960) but made a mistake and pressed "install update" instead of "install partial update". So I had to reinstall KSM8. After that I had this dictionary issue.

To cut a long story short, I finally made a factory reset. Nickel version 4.5.9587 was installed automatically. And then I reinstalled KSM8 and KOReader. Now the dictionaries work.

I posted an sdcv binary here that's been reported to work: https://github.com/koreader/koreader...ment-336899689

I'm still having some trouble properly wrapping that up, so it can't be made part of the official nightlies quite yet.

Thanks. Much appreciated. However, not quite sure what to do with the file.

Where does the extracted file go?

Thanks.

Okay, figured it out. Looked inside the KOreader folder and replaced the existing sdvc file with the new one.

Seems to be working fine. Once again, many thanks!!

Thanks for your input. Was very nearly tempted to downgrade and follow your example, but then I saw that Frenzie's fix had worked for others and thought I might try it.

Worked a treat on my KA1, once I discovered where to put the sdcv file that is. Not all that tech savvy, I'm afraid. But it worked, and now I don't have to reinstall everything.

Is it possible to have different screensavers between sleep mode and when turning off the device?
I've mimicked the kobo off and sleep screens, but as koreader doesn't seem to differentiate between turning off (long press power button) or sleep mode (short press power button), it always shows one at random.

EDIT:
is there somewhere in the code a variable specified between suspend or poweroff mode?

I plan to modify screensaver.lua to look for a specific filename if suspend, and another if poweroff.

Code:
        if screensaver_path then
            local mode = lfs.attributes(screensaver_path, "mode")
            if mode ~= nil then
                if mode == "directory" then
                    self.left_msg = createWidgetFromFile(screensaver_path/$screensavertype".png")
                else
                    self.left_msg = createWidgetFromFile(screensaver_path)
                end
            end
i want to use the (hopefully already) defined suspend or poweroff where i have $screensavertype now.

For people with slow start-up/slow first dictionary access: I had the same problem. It seems it was due to a dictionary containing thousands of small images. I simply deleted the images from the dictionary and now everything is fine (I don’t know what would happen if I tried to access an entry which uses one of those images, I didn’t encounter that situation yet).

The dictionary display in KOReader doesn't support images for the moment, so presumably nothing whatsoever. Thanks for the report!

Exclamation It has been a while

Hi there!

I have a Kobo H20 and a friend installed Koreader for me ... so now i haven't picked that thing up in a long time and yesturday when I did it wanted a Update. so i did the update and now I can't get back into KSM
my software version is 4.6.9995 now

also all the png files in nickel don't work anymore.

Now there's me trying to make sense of alle the postings here and github and koreader wiki
(already very proud about me )

BUT I still need coz all the "code" stuff is sorta chinese for me (looks pretty but it's an own language)

is there a dummy-version anywhere?
1. connect your device with usb cable
2. open "xyz" folder...
3....

etc. ?!?

I don't now if it's a bug coz of the update, or if i did something i shouldn't have. Just how can i fix this?

@G.I.R
KOReader is probably fine, just unreachable. You'll need to re-apply the KSM installation instructions written down here. On a new firmware like that, you'll also need this patch (mentioned in the KSM post; read it carefully).

For additional reference: https://github.com/koreader/koreader...n-Kobo-devices

THNX, next Problem:

KSM is upside down when I exit from nickel
But i guess it's a bug quite a few 1.Generation Kobo H20 users are having. And it has nothing to do with Wifi on or off, happens on both occasions.

but at least I can use koreader again so I'm sorta happy in my upside world

I think the patch is supposed to take care of that?
