It keeps saying, 'updating collections...'. I'd give it half a hour, then go back and see if it works. Most of the time, it does, but some times I need to rebuild the json file via calibre before it works.

So, I just want to know what's everyone's general experience? A few minutes? Ten minutes?
Missing or incorrect installation of Python.
Re-install Python from the package in NiLuJe's snapshots thread:
https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=225030

Quoted from the first post of this thread (the release post):
Quote:
What is needed.

LibrarianSync comes as a KUAL menu entry. As such, it requires: a jailbroken PW2, MKK, KUAL, and python (snapshot > 0.10N-r10867).

For more information, see the README file on github.

Quoted from the first post of this thread (the release post):
Hi, I've reinstalled the python (and even librarriansync reinstalled.). Still the same issue. It builds the collection but it won't tell me it's finished. Basically, I let it build for half an hour, then return back to the homepage to see if it's updated. So it works just doesn't have the indication at the bottom of the screen that says 'finished/completed/?' just eternally 'updating'.

So I'm fine with it at the moment, just wondering if it's a bug? Thanks for the help.

e-ink will display whatever was last written to it for years, perhaps forever.
so unless something gets written to that area of the screen, it will show what was last written.

The Kindle hardware can do 'zone updates' of the screen.
Does the message disappear when you open a book?
That would have to clear the area that 'updating' was last written to.

Does the message come back when you close the book?

No. If I close librariansync, click the KUAL arrow buttons it will be gone or click on the **** (which will in turn say 'noop'), it will disappear.

So it doesn't 'burn' so to speak. Just doesn't fade away automatically or indicate a collection is done.

So it really did complete its job, just failed to update the screen.

The add-in may be mis-identifing the KT-2 as some other device (some other screen resolution) and clearing the wrong screen area.
or
It may just not be writing the message.

= = = =

At least it isn't actually still running, it quit, it just did not say so.

It is a Python script, anybody who knows Python is welcome to fix it and post the change here.
Similar to what was recently done for the screen saver add-in.

Just bought a new PW. Would that make it a PW3? I don't see anywhere on Amazon where that is explained.

The first post mentioned LS had been tested on a PW2 and FW 5.3. Has anyone else gone any further? Should I be optimistic that I can install LS on my new PW? I'll be using it in conjunction with CM and Calibre.

Thank you.

Look at the date of the first post.
You are quoting from a three year old post, the PW-3 did not even exist then.

This librarian sync thread is different from our 'standard' format.

You will find the most recent information in the most recent posts instead of having the first post maintained to always quote the most recent information.
So start at your own post and scroll up, there is at least 300 posts with more recent 'news' that you might be interested in.
