@tshering - hat page was helpful - thank you.

I managed to compile QT for the Ubuntu desktop and then use qtcreator to build the app and test it on the desktop.

However, I now wanted to compile QT using the toolchain in the linked document and the compiler complains about cc1plus being missing.

I have setup my enironment PATH correctly (which g++ shows the right binary) and the ./configure command includes the right paths. So all should work, but it doesn't.

Code:
export PATH=~/kobo/gcc-linaro-arm-linux-gnueabihf-4.8-2013.04-20130417_linux/arm-linux-gnueabihf/bin:$PATH

./configure -embedded arm -prefix /usr/local/qt4kobo -no-static -shared -opensource -webkit -nomake examples -nomake demos -release -confirm-license

Any ideas for where I need to look?

I upload the fix. Extract KoboRoot.tgz from the zip-archive, and copy it to .kobo.
Select "handle update" > "KR install uncontrolled"

Thank you again for reporting.

I take it the touch screen for H2O2 is not fixed in this version?

This is correct. When you run nickel, and return to KSM, the screen will rotate.

You are welcome! It is strange. Almost a year went by since I broke the script (by stupidity), but nobody complained. I also did not note it.

I'm not completely sure, but I think it happens when I open plato from KSM (can't do that directly from nickel), quit plato to go back to KSM, and then start nickel. It does not happen when I make a detour to koreader before starting nickel.

Could you check with the webinterface which images are associated with fmon.
While nickel is running, press "ps" and look in the output for something like

Looks essentially the same (apart from an additional entry for plato.png).

Of course, as long as usbnet is enabled I don't see the problem with fmon. As soon as it is disabled, nickel starts (from time to time) again without fmon (or at least exit_nickel or toggle_nightmode don't work anymore).

This is strange? Would you like to try with the old fmon? Since the pngs are corrrectly registered in the database (at least I guess they are), there seems to be no danger in doing so.

Found out, how to reproduce it. Plato was a red herring. It's the "normal" usb connection in nickel that somehow disables fmon (of course, as long as usbnet is enabled, this problem is never triggered because you can't connect as mass storage device). I didn't notice it in KSM 08, so maybe this is something new?

Edit: And I can trigger it with simulate_usb_connection. I'll check with the old fmon.
