Well there is hope. From your description "filechooser" is setup right, in relation to this issue, while the History widget is doing something different that results in the problem. The guys that know how to fix it read these posts, that is assuming it is something that can be fixed. They seldom need corporate approval to work on it. If it just needs a small change to a script, the pool of those who can find and fix the issue gets much larger.

Glad to hear they seldom need corporate approval to modify the device. I hope they never need that approval. After a purchase is made, I think a consumer have the right to use the device for his own purposes not intended by the seller as long as he/she is not selling modified hardware. Kobo wants people to buy their ebooks but also somehow keep their device open - not quite though. After all, books are commodities. Kobo interface and emails with promotions, recommendations, syncing your "reading stats" with Kobo website every time you download something, the increasing social media connections, are just as aggressive as most other companies. I don't see why anyone would want their reading life framed by the corporate world or anyone other than themselves.

I really appreciate the efforts developers/enthusiasts put here in their spare time. You are the noble revolutionaries, to me at least. Thank you for helping set the reader free.

As for the problem: That's probably just the font used for the history display. It doesn't have the needed glyphs for the characters in question, I guess. Arguably, we should use just the same as for the normal filename display.

I see, so x and y are swapped on newer touch models. We should find out a way to distinguish between the two models...

In the worst case, we need a "tap upper right corner" dialog for first startup...

Looking at one of the Kobo scripts I see
Code:
kobo_config.sh
#!/bin/sh
PCB=`ntx_hwconfig -s -p /dev/mmcblk0 PCB`
case $PCB in
        E60610D*) echo trilogy;;
        E606B*) echo kraken;;
        E5061*) echo pixie;;
        E606C*) echo dragon;;
        E606F*) echo phoenix;;
        *) echo trilogy;;
esac
I wonder if the full version of PCB might reveal more, or even since trilogy (aka Touch) is the default, what other hardware config variants might there be.

On my type C Touch, the PCB string is exactly "E60610D".

Just in case. That is what still happens if you launch Koreader from Sergey's Kobolauncher Menu. Are you launching Koreader using Sergey's fmon that the updates to Giorgio's Koreader port provide the "koreader.png" for.

I installed the latest koreader today and I really like it. I would even more like it, if one could exit it without rebouting. One problem is, that after koreader the screen is turned by 270 degree. Therefore, I thought a first step to a solution might be restoring the original frame buffer settings after running koreader.

Before running koreader, fbset -s gives
Code:
mode "800x600-0"
	# D: 0.033 MHz, H: 0.034 kHz, V: 0.055 Hz
	geometry 800 600 800 1280 16
	timings 30000000 8 164 4 18 4 1
	accel false
	rgba 5/11,6/5,5/0,0/0
endmode
After running koreader, fbset -s givers
Code:
mode "600x800-0"
	# D: 0.033 MHz, H: 0.043 kHz, V: 0.052 Hz
	geometry 600 800 608 1792 8
	timings 30000000 8 164 4 18 4 1
	accel false
	rgba 8/0,8/0,8/0,0/0
endmode
I try to set
Code:
fbset -g 800 600 800 1280 16 -rgba 5/11,6/5,5/0,0/0 -t 30000000 8 164 4 18 4 1
and fbset -s shows

Code:
mode "600x800-0"
	# D: 0.033 MHz, H: 0.043 kHz, V: 0.052 Hz
	geometry 600 800 608 1792 16
	timings 30000000 8 164 4 18 4 1
	accel false
	rgba 5/11,6/5,5/0,0/0
endmode
As you see, of the geometry set only the -depth value (8 to 16 bits per pixel) has changed, the resolution is unchanged. Was this to be expected? I also tried setting each of the 5 geometry values individually, but with the same result. Is it an error in busybox? Is my approach totaly hopeless? Any ideas?

I think we should not reset the framebuffer upon starting, so that would get done with the problem. We don't use fbset in koreader but are using the Kernel API directly. But I have a modification in the works that would allow Koreader to handle the 16bpp framebuffer directly (in addition to 8bpp and 4bpp framebuffers, even RGB24/32 framebuffers will be possible). I guess it needs about a week to get polished.
