While I almost always prefer to grab a DjVu/PDF scan from Archive.org/DBNL/Gallica/etc. instead of an EPUB because it has a certain je ne sais quoi, I don't think a bad EPUB makes for a very meaningful comparison.

Anyway, if you set the DPI to something more appropriate in the bottom menu (third from the left) it should probably be fine in this case.

Yeah, that's a *terrible* way to handle unicode. It goes completely against the very nature of a reflowable format.

It's basically never really going to look good anywhere. You can fudge the DPI scaling like @Frenzie said, but, uggh.

I have recently installed koreader on a Forma. When trying to lookup a word or reflow a page in a .pdf I get the error message "No OCR results or no language data..." I did install the tesseract data files, but see the same error. Is it possible that the document's language setting affects this? In Book Information Language is N/A. Can I override it somewhere?

Hello,

I wonder if there is a way to run FTP server on Kobo Glo/HD? I try to explain how I use this method on my phone. On Android smartphone I run ftp server (I set username/pass beforehand), then on PC I add network location of the phone and connect to it. It is displayed the same as windows folders. Very convenient when I want to copy to/from my phone.
I tried to use SSH server on Kobo Glo, but couldn't connect via putty. Putty keep asking login name and pass, even when I set to connect without password... Access denied.
Also tried SendToEbook, it did not work with my phone, do not know why.

Could you please tell if there is an easy wireless way to connect reader from PC? I usually download fb2 on my PC end then copy it to device. Not very convenient to do it via cable, after found out the method with FTP server

Thank you for you work.

Yeah, the application SendToEbook doesn't work. I'm not sure if it worked sometime in the past. The app acts like a FTP server, while the plugin in KOReader acts as a FTP client. You can use another FTP server on your phone and retrieve contents using that plugin.

About ssh auth, setup shared keys or a new root password and you'll be able to use it. I would suggest WinSCP instead of Putty, but both should work fine.

I'm posting this here as well, see my other post at the one-click thread https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...&postcount=341 although one question is Nickel-related: I like to have my home screen blank except for the KoReader symbol. In my old reader I could get rid of the Kobo ads or recommendations by long press-remove. Not anymore.

Second question. I want to decrease the KoReader's menu fonts for new 7,8" Kobo Aura One ltd. ed. reader

You can set a lower DPI in settings (gear) → Screen → Screen DPI. The Aura One is at 300, so you're probably looking for some value in between 240 (80%) and 270 (90%).

As far as the first question, it's been a few years since the tile layout has come and gone in Nickel .

There's a patch to remove the bottom row, but there's no silver bullet to "pin" specific stuff on the homescreen.

In KOReader's case, the point is pretty much moot now, though, since you can have it in the Main menu via NickelMenu (bundled w/ the OCP), which I'd say is even better than a pinned book.

This new reader is perfect for my beloved pdf's from archive.org (cleaned up with ScanTailor). I've set the dpi to 240, much better now. So, NiLuJe, I guess I'll have to live with that ugly Kobo Shop publicity on my Nickel home screen

As I said, there's a patch to drop that row in the default kobopatch set.

Check out the Kobopatch thread dedicated to the latest firmware release in the Kobo dev forum.

I got rid of row 3 with the kobopatch.yaml version from the user DNSB https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...0&postcount=12 but not of the row above it with the recommendations

Enable parental control and you're good to go. You'll lose access to Kobo store and Pocket articles but you'll end with a empty home

Enabling parental control did the trick, thanks a lot. My reader is continually offline anyway. (all those Kobo patches were really of no use to me, they seem to be related to the nickel reader which I don't use)
