Sorry for my bad english.
That's 4.3.8842. To add fonts, create a directory called fonts from the root of the Glo. Then copy the fonts to the directory. Then reboot the Glo and you will be good to go.

Thank's.
I have made but not working.
I had already added the fonts in my glo with previous FW.
Sorry for my bad English.

It is important that "fonts" is written exactly in this way, all lower case letters, and that it is located directly in the root (not inside of any other folder; not inside of ".kobo" for instance).

One other item is that you need to power cycle or pinhole reset your Kobo after adding the fonts directory and when adding any new fonts to the directory.

can koreader launch pdf's from Nickle

When I jailbroke my Kindle and installed Koreader, there was a hack to launch PDF's (and epubs) straight from the main interface using koreader to open the documents. Is there a way I can use Koreader on my Kobo (just for PFDs) without closing Nickle and navigating the directory structure.

Short answer: No. You could make a "hidden" directory for your PDFs and setup the Switch to Koreader option in KSM. With the PDF directory set as the browser's home directory, it would be easy to find a new PDF. KOReader's History would show your opened PDFs. If you already had a PDF open in KOReader, and you had KOReader set to open in last document, you would have that PDF when you switched from Nickel.

Luck;
Ken

Is there a place that lists all the software for/ports to Kobo? Koreader, Plato, Frotz, vlasofsoft - what else is out there?

Opening PDF's automatically with Koreader/kfmon

Hi,

I am trying to have my kobo open PDFs using Koreader automatically, as I did with my jb kindle and kvwallet.

I have installed kfmon (by unzipping it to the kobo /) and koreader (by unzipping it to .adds).

However, when I press on a PDF title, Nickle still launches the book.

Is what I am trying to do possible? I am using a Glo HD w/ latest firmware.

Thanks in advance.

@shoelesshunter: It is currently not possible, no.

(And possibly won't, ever, because KOReader happens to kill Nickel on Kobo, unlike on Kindle, where we simply try to hobble the main UI as best we can, which happens to be the source of an unending series of kludges. And even if we didn't kill Nickel, we happen to coax the device in a hardware state that is more efficient, but completely incompatible with Nickel).

TL;DR: Don't hold your breath. Even if it were technically possible, I wouldn't want to deal with the same kind of kludges KPVBooklet has to deal with on Kindle to make that possible.

Well, there is that plugin thing we were working on ... remember how it can handle custom mimetypes and extensions? Although, I'm not certain if it can override an existing mimetype without a patch.

@geek1011: Yep, which is why I expanded on the specific KOReader case ;o).

admittedly, this is pretty far out there, but I'll ask anyway. is there any way to do a screen capture on the Clara HD. maybe a hack or a patch I've missed?

several times since owning mine I've had a knee-jerk reflex to do a screen cap. just hoping. thanks.

There's an easy built in way, but it uses the power button which means if you enable it, you'll no longer be able to use it to turn it off or put it to sleep (or wake it up from sleep). However, that's not a problem if you use a sleep cover since the magnet can replace that functionality.
