Haven't tried an epub but the viewer was good for a pdf.
Now to get the keys remapped :-)

Hi Ged, i launched qindle as you suggested and i find it an interesting piece of sw but as you pointed, there is almost no support for keys.

Have you already done any remapping that you'd like to share?

thanks in advance

I was hoping there was a config file with key mappings but I couldn't find anything that straight forward, unfortunately I expect it would need some changes in the source and recompiling.

Does anyone know of any existing open-source dashboard apps for embedded devices, especially anything using Qt?
Well as this demonstrates you just need to write a Linux-program.
(The Kindle uses Linux as its base OS so you write a linux program that uses the display (which might be shown in the qindle source) and you have yourself a new 'something')
