Your problem can easily be fixed by proper folder structure. I can copy mine from Era Color and send it to you.

I'm happy you found a home for it. I was really worried you were going to throw it away.

Okay, I installed KoReader on my Touch HD 3. One thing that's very important is to be wary of is replacing your folders. I had several folders that I could have chosen to replace. Had I done that with the applications folder (at least), I would have had KoReader and no other application. So I used MERGE whenever I was asked if I wanted to replace, skip, etc. That might be what happened to Jim.

KoReader is much more ready "out of box" in my PocketBook than it was in my Nook Glowlight 3. One of the things I don't like though is, if I remove the status bar on the bottom (figured out how to do it), it still keeps the text space as if the status bar was still there. That lost space bothers me as the built-in reader does a good job of filling in the page.

I also haven't been able to figure out how go to a specific ePub page number. That's what I use to sync with my other readers. (It looks like it uses screens for page numbers by default, like a KePub. Is there a way to change that? I rarely use KePubs in my Kobos specifically because of this.) EDIT 2: It looks like I'm wrong about how KoReader numbers pages. They stay consistent no matter what font size (5947 pages on the book I'm reading). But all other ePub readers show 2302 pages for this book. Not sure if that can be adjusted or not.

If I decide to uninstall KoReader is there anything specific I should know?

At this point I still like the built-in reader(s) in PocketBook better. But I'm sure there are features that I haven't explored yet in KoReader. If I can't get standard ePub page numbers, though, I'll probably remove the application.

EDIT: On a positive note, one thing I definitely like is the contrast setting. Much better than font weight settings, which alter the shape of the font.

I have already installed Koreader on dozens of Pocketbook devices whit out problem.I don't know how it is in the case of OSX, but under Windows or Linux, when I unzip the two folders "application" & "system" on the Pocketbook device, the OS asks me if I want to replace the original folders, but after confirmation, the contents of the said folders are not deleted, but it happens only for the so-called fusion - merging of components. (which means that the contents of the folder are unchanged)

Okay. I didn't take a chance, I just merged folders. I use Linux. In apps it showed to the new application folder with one app and the old application folder with multiple folders. It looked to me that if I replaced instead of merged, I would have a folder with only application. (But I don't know anything about loading apps in the PocketBooks, so I guess my assumption was wrong ó not quite sure why, though.)

I've been reading a book in KoReader (that I don't need to be syncable (if that's a word) with other ePub readers, and it's starting to grow on me. I see that it can do a lot that I'll never use, but I really like the contrast setting.

If your ePub has built-in page numbers, you can use them via Reference Pages menu ó but it's only visible if you do have built-in page numbers.

Otherwise you can use your custom page numbers as I did in my user patch: https://github.com/koreader/koreader...ent-2033259217

Apparently I don't have the right kind of built-in page numbers, as (so far) I haven't been able to come up with the Reference Page menu at all. I'm curious as to how Kobo (non KePub), PocketBook's normal reading applications, the Nooks and Tolinos come up with the same page numbers? They must rely on something different than what KoReader requires.

That's probably beyond me at this point in my life. But I'll take a closer look at it. KoReader (even without "standard" page numbers) is starting to win me over because of the contrast setting. I thought the Constantia font looked really good before, but it looks even better with the contrast set up a couple notches. It also seems to (by default) find the perfect line spacing (at least to my taste). PocketBook's built-in readers now look either slightly too wide or too narrow depending on the setting. (They looked fine before.)
