I think I already posted this before: When I acidentally tip on a footnote that's placed on the margin (almost invisible, too light grey, cold be bolder) and get directed to the footnote page, I have trouble finding the right footnote (which also would have been better if it were in bold) to get back to my original page. And in the example shown below, the screen sensitivity isn't very precise, so often instead of getting back to my page, I only get the previous footnote page. Any ideas?

Updated mod for Lighttoggle+Shutdown buttons

I don't know where is the best thread for post that but like the last update was here... In any case feel free to move to a better thread/forum.

I know about the gesture plugin for toggle on/off touching bottom-left corner, but I haven't it active and like a button solution. About the shutdown button, it really poweroff the device using KSM poweroff.sh like the original mod (easy to change for other options, I think). At least there isn't any problem in my daily use, so I hope you also.

The original mod was created by xor_ (I remember Alan_S also did a little update to KSM8).

serdar0020; Have you tried a left to right swipe, starting on the left side? Or using the menu options, for this?

Luck;
Ken

I can swipe left to right and go to the previous page. Which menu option did you mean?

First tab of the top menu > Links, there's a couple of gestures there, one of which is for "back to prev loc" (plus, a "back to prev loc" menu entry in the toplevel menu, as Ken mentioned).

thanks guys, I finally got it: just activate in the links section "swipe to get back" and "swipe to jump to latest bookmark" - then no more accidental tapping on footnotes

@NiLuJe

I don't know if you've heard about the backlight issue on the Clara yet, (probably not as I don't think anybody else has got KOReader running on that?) but I got the following error message, which might interest you:

the names don't match:
koreader wants led1a. led1b
the filesystem has leda, ledb

led controls orange and white (values 0 - 100) (if you change the value, it will turn off white and only do orange)
leda controls orange (values 0 - 255)
ledb controls white (values 0 - 255)
mxc_msp430.0 controls orange (values 0 - 100) (if you change the value, it will turn off white and only do orange)

'led' sets a value between 0% and 100% of the chosen value of 'leda' and 'ledb' (so if you set 'ledb' at 128(~50%), and 'led' at 50(~50%), the screen will output ~25% total brightness (in theory. apparently it can also set it higher, so maybe the scale of 0 - 100, has 0 - 50 = dim 0% - 100%, and 50 - 100 = brighten 0% - 100%?

i tried some things, using:

echo $value > /sys/devices/platform/ntx_bl/backlight/mxc_msp430.0/brightness
echo $value > /sys/class/backlight/lm3630a_led/brightness
echo $value > /sys/class/backlight/lm3630a_leda/brightness
echo $value > /sys/class/backlight/lm3630a_ledb/brightness

'led' can turn down, and off 'leda' and 'ledb'
'led' can turn on 'leda' (not 'ledb')
'mxc_msp430.0' can turn down, on and off 'leda'
'leda' can turn down, on and off 'leda'
'ledb' can turn down, on and off 'ledb'

then i found 'color'

echo (0 - 10) > /sys/class/backlight/lm3630a_led/color
0 = orange, 10 = white. all inbetween, is inbetween.

so for colour tone, use /sys/class/backlight/lm3630a_led/color
for dimming, use 'leda' and 'ledb'

I hope this gives you an idea of how the backlight works?

Yeah, that might be helpful .

Someone had provided us with different settings, but there was an issue with *one* of the led, which is made apparent by your information, so I'll tweak that a bit and *hope* the rest of the backend will deal with it properly .

I don't have *any* device with that kind of HW to test, so I can't be of much more help, unfortunately .

You might want to check how a current nightly behaves, and, after that, if this commit breaks it or not .

nightly works, the light and warmth sliders work correctly as well.

and that patch doesn't seem to have negative effects

looking at the physical hardware, it seems that the red and white LEDs are separate from eachother, and I don't think there are any green LEDs in this device.

To make sure of this, someone will have to take the front cover off the device, and then the black tape covering the LEDs. (but that's a bit too much, if you ask me.)
