Any suggestions for getting a Kindle 5th generation (w/o touch) running? I just want a simple reader where I can do wifi to send files.

The network is connected enough to do an auto update with koreader, but even still, the network info says "gateway ping failed" and calibre never connects. Plus, I can't enter the calibre address manually, since every time i finish entering the ip, I can't get the keyboard to work again for the port number, so I end up cancelling the dialog. Incidentally, the ssh-server on koreader works, as I was able to log into the kindle from the same machine running the calibre server. Also, if I tell koreader to connect calibre with auto wireless settings, it always asks me if I want to turn on wifi, even when wifi is already on.
No idea about the network stuff on the Kindle. If the network works fine (as your SSH connection shows) might be the code that checks that you're currently connected the thing that fails.

About Non-Touch issues. Yeah. Some widgets don't work. Since modern eink devices are all touch nobody is trying to fix that as far as I know. Patches welcome.

You can edit settings.reader.lua from SSH and add something like:

Code:
["calibre_wireless_url"] = {
    ["address"] = "192.168.1.1",
    ["port"] = 9090,
},
The same with the password

Code:
["calibre_wireless_password"] = "mySuperSecretPassword",
and with the path to download

Code:
["inbox_dir"] = "/mnt/us/documents/wewewe",

Thanks for the suggestions. I can certainly do the edits via ssh.

I guess that I'll have to look in the dhcp files to see why the gateway isn't happening...

K4 Silver w/Koreader best solution

After some experimentation, I discovered the best solution to the glitches. I can use SCP to copy documents over from my windows laptop via WIFI and then easily view them in Koreader, so Calibre wasn't the only way to send files. The windows interface on the SCP is good enough to make practical. At least now there is no more a need to plug and unplug the kindle just to put a file on it. That was the main goal!

Hey!

I've just installed the 2021.03 on my KOA3.
Everything works fine except for the screen rotation.

When I rotate it clockwise, it inverts the text around ~135 degrees (90+45), correctly.
However, when I rotate it counter clockwise, the same thing happens after only ~45 degrees. This means it's impossible to read it while lying on your left side.

Did anybody else experience this with the new version? This might be a KOA3 specific issue.

Edit: Everything works fine with the stock reader, this is not a hardware issue.

What exactly do you mean by rotating it clockwise? Cf. https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/7429 though I think the current icons are fairly clear (regardless if they're intuitive).

I meant when I'm rotating the device physically. With clockwise rotation it takes ~135 degrees for the text to turn upside down, with counter clockwise it only takes ~45 degree.
This is the clean install, I didn't change the rotation settings or mess with the rotation buttons at all. I also confirmed that the accelerometer is working correctly with the stock reader. Since I'm new to e-readers in general, this might be a misunderstanding on my part, but I expected the reader to rotate symmetrically to both directions like the stock one.

I wanted to know if this was an issue specific to KOA3 before I post an issue on github or try to debug it myself, since support for it just got added.

This matches what was mentioned in https://www.mobileread.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=338306

The gyro probably sends more/different events or something.

The KOA3 support is currently just assuming it's a KOA2, so, yeah, stuff is going to break in fun and interesting ways, as I don't have the device to test it myself .

Thanks! This suggests that this is KOA3 specific.
I've did some debugging and found the correct orientation codes.
Opened an issue.

Those of you with a KO3 can get a donation going to get @NiLuJe a KO3 so he can have a go at fixing the KO3 problems.

I remember we did this for @Kovid to get him a Sony Reader so he could code Calibre for it. We didn't mind donating for the cause.

Touch feedback on kindle

Hello everyone,
Thank you for working on koreader.

Just wondering if it's possible to add touch feedback whenever selecting menus/buttons for the kindle build.

As compared to the Android port, objects would temporarily invert color as a feedback for touches. Tried doing a fresh install on the kindle but it looks like the kindle build does not have that feature enabled?

Are you guys experiencing this as well?
