IIRC, some renderers entirely bypass the Panose metadata. I can't remember which though (might be Kindle/M7, Kindle/KF8, might be Nickel/ADE, might be Nickel/kePub, and I don't think we care in KOReader either, because we're not using fontconfig).

Do note that I'm pretty sure this doesn't affect weight at all, it affects what the renderer *thinks* the weight of that font is. i.e., that specific bit in the WiKi is to fix Nickel 'missing' the Book/Medium weight, and instead falling back to bold, and as such rendering (mostly) everything with the bold style of the family.

Thank you all for your help. I have one more question in the actual file names scheme. The base name of the files have to match the internal font name. In the case given in the cited wiki, I have the following, in FontForge:

Element / Font Info / PS Names:
Fontname: AmazonEmber-Regular
Family Name: Amazon Ember
Name For Humans: Amazon Ember
Base Filename: Same as Fontname

Element / Font Info / TTF Names:
Family: Amazon Ember
Styles: Regular
Fullname: Amazon Ember

The file is saved as AmazonEmber-Regular.ttf, but the windows font viewer sees the font name as Amazon Ember. Question: I should rename the file to read Amazon Ember-Regular.ttf, even if it is saved as AmazonEmber-regular.ttf, right ?

Thank you.

@hfpop: Nope. The only thing you can safely drop is the 'Regular' suffix. Any sane font rendering engine *should* assume that no suffix means medium.

c.f., fontconfig:
Code:
fc-match "Deja Vu Sans Mono"
DejaVuSansMono.ttf: "DejaVu Sans Mono" "Book"
(It will match on the right font no matter the case & spacing).

But that's for fontconfig, so I digress a bit.

TL;DR: No, trust FontForge.

Wanted to thank you guys. Just got your latest nightly working through fmon on my clara HD and you have made my "probable return" into a "probable keep".

I wanted to use my Clara HD mainly for academic papers and most of those are in pdf and how should I put this... The PDF handling from kobo isn't really convincing. Being able to get this working has not only made my day but probably will save a couple of trees a month so once again,

thank you.

P.S:
The steps I used to get it working.
1. download pbchess
2. install according to instructions
3. Download latest nightly
4. Just add the Koreader to your desired location (.adds/.kobo)
5. edit the fmon_launcher.sh to redirect to koreader.sh

Why not just stick it in the default .adds/koreader?

Sure sorry for the typo, but firstly that doesn't matter, and secondly to create the .adds folder in windows (my current platform) you have to do it through cmd as it isn't possible to create .**** folders in windows explorer. As it really doesn't matter I thought I'd add .kobo as it's there and it works.

It might be a default location when using KMS or maybe even KFmon but it doesn't exist by default. At least not on the Clara HD.

Edit: And as far as I'm aware currently only the Fmon by vlasovsoft works at the moment on the Clara HD.

It does exist by default when using KSM, but I misunderstood.

It is possible, but you need to name directory with dot on both ends, for example .****. to use your example. After that, you're left with only first dot.

Also, just to mention, I'm going with KSM as it is very useful and powerful tool with many other advantages, one of them is that it enables me to completely avoid any need for nickel.

Alan_S,

great,

doesn't work with Clara HD yet.

News
  • Clara HD is currently not supported, please wait for update 3 (coming soon).
  • Until update 3 becomes available, please install the changed start script for Plato 4.1+
Point is that this method currently works on the Clara HD and as far as I know is currently the only method that works. I will gladly use the more convenient and elegant solutions when available but I have papers to write and I just need to read way too much to wait.

@Dondville: KFMon is pretty much hardware-agnostic (the only hardware-related stuff is the screen feedback via FBInk, and that's still in RC, and will just silently not do anything if unsupported... and it also supports the Clara anyway ).

That made it to the README a few weeks ago specifically because we knew the Clara was coming .

It's also specifically packaged in a way that hides away the hassle of dealing with subdirectories and dot-directories (i.e., unzip at root, fire & forget).

It started after a discussion on a 'one-click' installation method for KOReader, so I care about this kind of stuff .

----

In fact, that makes me realize that I should re-order the install instructions on the WiKi, thanks!

Awesome, I'll try it today.

I found your note at the bottom of the "What's it for" section and while it is clear I was quickly searching for a definitive list of supported devices with my trusty Ctrl+F and skimming the installation areas. As I was only seeing complaints about Clara HD support on other forum posts, I assumed it would be mentioned by name when the issue would be resolved (which in this case wasn't necessary). Not saying it's incorrect, just unclear.

Hope it'll do a nicer job of getting KoReader and other apps to work.

Anyway, thanks.

@Dondville: The Clara mention was actually also missing for that page until my previous answer .

It's often the little things like that that actually feel the most helpful to new users, so, yeah, thanks for jogging things up .

KSM works if you're okay with manually editing some stuff (check my comments in the KSM 09 chat*)

*I won't directly link to it, as non "tech-savvy" people might "brick" their ereaders somehow.

But yeah, i'm a happy KSM user on my Clara

Looks promising. At the moment I'm too swamped to edit more code than a simple file location at the moment and my current setup works amazingly. If I have a little more time I'll probably try it, but by that time it'll probably be properly implemented.

Just to express my love of the KoboReader: Love the highlight export feature. Literally has made quoting papers easier than ever. Unfortunately, the Evernote connection feature crashes the reader at the moment. And apart from that, sometimes my rather large pdf's full of highlights start to slow down the entire reader until it crashes. Happens after a couple of hours and generally, I'm able to quickly save before it gets too horrible so not too shabby for a nightly build.

I think you still could get info on memory usage in status bar (at the moment I'm not on latest nightly), so you can watch when things go south and make restart on time.
