I don't know precisely how it works, but there's actually a "find a book in calibre catalog" option in the search menu of the file browser.

Precisely, I tried that and it didn't work.

Am I missing some KOReader configuration?

In doubt,

You have to have calibre put the books on your device and create a "metadata.calibre" file, that it maintains whenever it transfers files to your device.

It takes awhile for a large library, a few min., to bring up the first menu.

Luck;

Yes, that's one of the entry in the search tab of the FM.

EDIT: missed a new page, yay.

It was already there. Hmmm...

I see. Are there any screenshots of how the menu looks when the library is already loaded?

Define "didn't work". What happened, exactly?

I type part of the name that would match several books stored in the uSD card and the Calibre search says there are no books to match.

Would those book happen to be KePubs? Or stored in a hidden folder?

Nope, all of them are either regular epub or mobi ebooks.

Is it me or am I missing some KOReader configuration regarding the Calibre library file on the uSD card?

At a loss,

Ah, yes, that was going to be my next question, sorry I missed that if you mentioned it earlier (and you did ).

If you're pushing books both to the internal storage and the sd card, the default "find the calibre database automatically" behavior will basically return the first one it finds, and there's potentially no real way to say which one that'll be (but I'd say there's a higher chance it'll point to the internal one).

So, that leaves you with having to manually set this up. This is done via the defaults.lua system. I'll direct you to the wiki for more details on how to make this persistent across updates, but, for now, check the defaults.lua file, in particular the section about SEARCH_LIBRARY_PATH

If you actively use both storage locations with Calibre, you'll probably want to use something like

Code:
SEARCH_LIBRARY_PATH  = "/mnt/onboard"
SEARCH_LIBRARY_PATH2 = "/mnt/sd"
(To be tweaked if you use a more unconventional setup with the library in a specific subdirectory).

That should make things behave after a KOReader restart, and a single search will look at both "libraries" at once.

Hey, you guys are bearing with my inane questions that are very probably answered elsewhere so, why would I complain?

I'm very gratefull for your help, good sir

Thank you very much:clear instructions, easy to follow and to the point.

I've now edited said file on my Aura 2013 and will report on the results.

BTW: I truly don't know if your instructions are in fact duly posted on elsewhere on the KOReader proper documentation / this thread first post / other posting on KOReader. Hint-hint, wink-wink :-P

Very gratefully yours,

@Incanus: Good point, a quick search in the wiki yields nothing, I'll pass that on to our resident Wiki guru, Alan .

Ugh, I'm not sure what should I put there (and where exactly), I don't use calibre at all and also I don't use SD card, only internal memory (although on H2O internal memory is SD card)...

So, if you can post what should be placed in wiki, I can copy it there, but I know in such case I'm a bit redundant.

Sorry, but there's a lot of things I don't use and don't know how to use. Koreader today is such great (meaning also very big and complex) software, so it is hard to know everything it does. I try to enter info in wiki I know and understand, not to confuse people with wrong instructions.

If I well understood problem and solution, it would be something like this:

If you want to use calibre and have books both on internal and external memory, you need to set koreader to know how to access both places.

This is done via the defaults.lua system (or, persistent.defaults.lua, which survives manual updates, so best to use it instead defaults.lua). In particular the section about SEARCH_LIBRARY_PATH

If you actively use both storage locations with Calibre, you'll probably want to use something like

Code:
SEARCH_LIBRARY_PATH  = "/mnt/onboard"
SEARCH_LIBRARY_PATH2 = "/mnt/sd"

(make sure to use correct path)


I hope this is correct instructions?

@Alan: Yep, that'll do nicely, thank you very much .

As for a place to put it, I'm loathe to say the tips and tricks page, because it's already 5 million lines too long, so maybe a new page titled "Calibre interaction"? Stuff about the Calibre wireless driver might fit in there, too.
