GeoffR,
Is there a way to patch the store add Sort by Price when browsing sub-categories in the store? Currently the only options are Bestsellers, Most popular, and what's new.

Something tells me that would depend on the website (and the API for access to it) supporting Sort by Price.

That is probably right, but even if the sorting was done on the device I don't know how to change it. (I wish I did, the first thing I would do would be to enable sorting the library by series like it did in firmware 2.3.x)

The kobo firmware has some undocumented or experimental features that are not active by default, but which can be enabled in the [FeatureSettings] section of the device's configuration file .kobo/Kobo/Kobo eReader.conf.

The configuration file is a plain ASCII file with unix line breaks. When editing it, it is important to use an editor that doesn't change the file type or line break style. Most Linux and Mac text editors should be okay, but don't use Notepad or Wordpad in Windows: use an editor such as Notepad++ instead.

(Enabling these features doesn't require patching at all, but some patches work in conjunction with undocumented features, so I've included this post here for reference.)

An example of an undocumented feature is FullScreenReading which, once enabled, adds the following option to the Reading settings menu:
Attachment 139063

To enable a feature, e.g. FullScreenReading, edit the configuration file and add the new feature to the [FeatureSettings] section. (If there is not already a [FeatureSettings] section, then add that too.) The result should look like:
Code:
[FeatureSettings]
FullScreenReading=true
Additions to [FeatureSettings] will remain in place after a firmware update. If you want to disable the feature you can edit the configuration file again and change its setting from true to false.
\I can not find the kobo directory. Can you help me?

That directory name starts with a dot. It is".kobo". If you are using a Mac or Linux machine to access the device, the directory will probably be hidden (that's what the dot means). You will need to do whatever is needed in your OS to see hidden directories.

Hi,

Is there a way to uninstall/delete some default fonts on Kobo Glo? I hate to see OpenDyslexic and Gothic on my device list. Just a matter of personal choice. I have learned that all the default fonts can be disabled through Metazoa patches, but I'd like to keep some of them on device.
Sorry for my bad English.

There is a patch to not show system fonts, but it also stops showing some side loaded fonts as well. So I don't recommend it.

Basically the answer is no, you cannot remove just some system fonts.

Oh.. it's a pity . Anyway, thanks JSWolf, for the information. However, one more question, I do not find any .ttf or .otf files anywhere on the device for the pre-loaded fonts. Could you please inform where are they stored and in what form?

They are located on the system partition, /usr/local/Trolltech/QtEmbedded-4.6.2-arm/lib/fonts. You need access to the system partition in order to delete any files there. For one time use the simplest way is by setting udev rules, I guess. For an example of how to do this you can look at uninstall_qms.zip of this post, which deletes some files from the system partition. Do not try it if you do not feel comfortable with this.

There is a more simple way I guess: the fonts folder.
If you side download the fonts you need and put them in that folder, it will display it on the list.
Then use the system fonts patch to disable them all, with some luck the ones in the fonts folder are still there visible.
(in the root of your device create a folder named fonts, every font you put in there is useable.. )

Thanks, tshering and Nick_1964 for your valuable advise. I will try my luck with both the methods, and inform the outcome.

While that does get rid of the fonts that are wanted to be gotten rid of, the fonts that are not wanted to go also go. So I highly recommend staying away from that patch as it causes more trouble than it is worth.
