USB Not working correctly

I have a Kobo Glo with plato 0.5.1, run from ksm.

When I connect a USB cable, it detects that it was plugged in, prompts me if I want to connect, and when I do it goes to the "Mounted" screen as expected, but USB does not fully connect.

USB works correctly in nickel and ksm, but after this happens I will need to restart to have it work in either of those again.

My crash.log is:
Code:
Plato is running on a Kobo Glo.
The framebuffer resolution is 758 by 1024.
umount: can't umount /mnt/onboard: Device or resource busy
insmod: can't insert '/drivers/mx50-ntx/usb/gadget/arcotg_udc.ko': unknown symbol in module or invalid parameter
insmod: can't insert '/drivers/mx50-ntx/usb/gadget/g_file_storage.ko': unknown symbol in module or invalid parameter
Can't load metadata: Can't open file.
plato: Can't save metadata.
plato: Can't create data file.
plato: No such file or directory (os error 2)
thread '<unnamed>' panicked at 'called `Result::unwrap()` on an `Err` value: "SendError(..)"', libcore/result.rs:945:5
note: Run with `RUST_BACKTRACE=1` for a backtrace
Running it without plugging is usb creates an info.log with just the first two lines.

Thanks

Plato 0.5.1 Frontlight

  • Bring up the main menu by tapping the main menu icon?
The Settings.toml from 0.5.0 has frontlight = true, the Settings.toml from 0.5.1 has frontlight = false, don't know why.

Why is there a settings for this at all?

Ok, thanks to @jcn363 I got Plato running with KSM. It's nice but I prefer Nickel. However Plato could be better for PDF / Comics!?

I just tried your updated usb-enable.sh. I get still the same result as dnh. The problem is

Code:
insmod "$GADGETS"/arcotg_udc.ko $MODULE_PARAMETERS
It should be only
Code:

This worked for me, thanks!

I had one other slight annoyance, how difficult would it be to allow the physical light button toggle the light? There are other ways to do it, but it would be a nice to have. Thanks.

I didn't succeed to load PDF books. With Koreader is no problem. What do I have to regard to read PDF with Plato?

I've released 0.5.2.
  • Storage sharing should work on every device.
  • The physical buttons LIGHT and HOME are bound.
  • A notification will appear when the battery capacity goes below battery.warn % and the device will power itself off if it goes below battery.power_off %.

Hello Guys,

I need some basic guide for plato to install on my Kobo Glo HD.

On this page https://github.com/baskerville/plato...r/doc/GUIDE.md

it says:

And extract the relevant archive:

unzip plato-launcher-fmon-VERSION.zip -d SD_ROOT

But i don't understand that. Where can i find the plato-launcher-fmon.zip ???

Do you have any package to install on the kobo Glo HD? Do i need to install fmon first and how can i do that, via KSM menu?

(i have KSM9 already installed)

Note: Make sure that you have installed the latest update for KSM 9 (KSM09_update002.zip), and also StartMenu_09_plato_4.1.zip.

You can then simply copy the folder "plato" (which you can find in plato-0.5.2.zip) into the folder ".adds". There will then (you might have to reboot) appear a menu entry "start plato" at the first page of KSM.

This is very very perfect instruction thank you for that. I have now installed plato successfully in 20 minute with updates..

In plato where can i change the refresh page? I see now on every next page a shadow from that previous page and therefore reading the books is not so pretty fine. (i see that with night mode enabled in Plato)

@anki: That's a side-effect of night mode (on every device under the sun, except the Oasis 2, because it has specific hardware/software quirks to make it less terrible), it's not specific to Plato.

You can trade ghosting for eye-searingly blinding flashes by enforcing flashing refreshes on every page turn (which IIRC you can tweak in Plato's settings), but it won't necessarily feel better to use.
