Before testing KOReader I found it helpfull to enable telnet, enable wireless and open the extra internet browser to make sure the Aura is connected to the local network with an IP adres.
When KOReader hangs, you can still telnet into the device, and give commands like kill and reboot. ___No_need_to_do_a_factory_reset!!___

For those that have a problem with nonworking pictograms after changing shell codes, perform the changes through a linux command shell. The easiest way is via putty, a windows program that gives you access to the Aura's command shell via telnet.
(One of the reasons for not working could be that the EndOfLine symbol is different between linux and windows. In Notepad++ the EOLmarker for windows is represented as CRLF, in Unix as LF.)

WOW... Are the stars aligned or something!

I finally get some sleep and you all fix not only the problem I had in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...1&postcount=61 but really advance the whole alternative reader approach, by quite a ways.

Bravo and Kudos to you all.

Now to figure out how to incorporate all this into one upgrade.

Luck;
Ken

I knew I should have used/setup the Usbnet feature.

OT: one of the first C programs I wrote while in the Army was to change the
EOL from a Unix generated report stream into one compatible with Signals equipment based on a Windows/DOS OS.

cgm999, your fixed version is awesome and makes this pretty usable: thank you!

Question about the custom command: where is the bug icon? I can't figure out what to press.

I'm trying to get it to run a script that toggles crengine.display.inverse between 0 and 1 to get a nightmode toggle working. I tried that manually, and it works but does require exiting the book and entering it again, which is a reasonable compromise for me.

The script, for what it's worth is:

Code:
#!/bin/sh

sed -e'/crengine.display.inverse/ y/01/10/' -i /mnt/onboard/.kobo/koreader/data/cr3.ini
echo "toggled inverse flag"
Cheers!

cgm999 thanks!

Anyone knows why KOReader is less responsive to touch input than Kobo's pdfviewer? For example I have to try and press the X for 10-20 times before it reboots. I have to work at it to display the top menu and the bottom one. (I keep getting highlighted lines, instead of the menu's.)

Is there a trick to it?

I wonder if it might be that the active spots are too close to the edge of the screen, and therefor harder to reach with the higher resolution of the AuraHD. Just a guess.

Or due to screen size the area to touch is too small.

I would tend to think the control is just small. I have a hard time hitting it from the Glo. I figure it will be harder from the Aura.

I use the reboot button from my previous koreader version. It's big and easy to hit. It's an additional icon in the reader menu. The one on the right (inverted home button).

From the attached zip:

readermenu.lua goes into koreader/frontend/ui/reader/
(backup the original version if you want to revert)

appbar.reboot.png goes into koreader/resources/icons/

Has anyone worked out the proper order to install and apply the mods and hacks?

Going from a "stock" Kobo to one running KoReader with all compatible mods and hacks upto and including "xor_"'s bigger button.

Luck;

The order is mostly flexible, but I suggest the following order.

(Optional:
Kobo Touch Hacks for telnet, ftp, and user script on startup.
Followed by the inverse mod. The inverse mod MUST come after enabling telnet, ftp, and the user script since it modifies the startup script automatically.
)

KoboLauncher first, since it facilitates testing.
Ensure KoboLauncher works.
koreader next, since it must be installed before it's files are modified.
Now for muness' KoboLauncher.sh modifications.
Verify that the launcher icon loads koreader.
Now for the cgm mod.
Verify that the cgm mod works.
Now for the xor mod.
Verify that the xor mod works.
Finally, apply trekk's configuration.
Verify that trekk's configuration works.

I'm not up on all of the other mods.

Great, That gives me a little more confidence to jump back into it and hope to get it right this time.

Thanks.

muness : can you make a screenshot on how your Kobo looks like after adding my changes? (and you have the bottom menu activated). My guess is that is something with res , aurahd have 1080x1440 We could ajust the mod based on device_model


As for changing data/cr3.ini I would guess that koreader needs some restart after thats replaced (and you can do that if you do a killall reader.lua and from koreader_kobo.sh you have a while loop like this:


while :; do
LD_PRELOAD=/root/screenInv.so ./reader.lua /mnt/onboard
# ./reader.lua /mnt/onboard
sleep 1
done



notice: I use /root/screenInv.so , so if I echo t into /tmp/invertScreen then that will switch the nightmode
BTW here is my koreader-debug_cmd.sh:

#!/bin/sh

echo requested debug command $1

if test :$1 == :w_on ; then
/mnt/onboard/.kobo/KoboLauncher/usbnet/start-wireless.sh
elif test :$1 == :reboot ; then
reboot
elif test :$1 == :w_off ; then
/mnt/onboard/.kobo/KoboLauncher/usbnet/stop-wireless.sh
elif test :$1 == :inv ; then
echo t > /tmp/invertScreen
fi

and in ./frontend/ui/data/koptoptions.lua (relevant lines toggle and args) :

{
icon = "resources/info-bug.png",
options = {
{
name = "debug_cmd",
name_text = "debug cmd",
toggle = {"test","w_on","w_off","other_cmd",},
args = {"test","w_on","w_off","other_cmd",},
current_func = function() return "xxxxx" end,
default_arg = "a",
event = "debug_cmd",
}

},
},


so for reboot I use the debug_cmd from this menu .

Sorry guys, for the non techies of us who are in a fog, could you confirm if the following, which did not work in the first koreader version, work in the current one:
1. menus accessible from landscape mode;
2. dictionary;
3. notes.

Thanks!
