I did a quick basic test and (un?)fortunately I couldn't find any trouble (link). I'm not really sure where to start looking for answers. Maybe something about how a particular OS deals with the FAT32 filesystem?

Thank you so much! Finally Koreader autoloads. I have some more questions:
1. Can I change the setting of "ksmAutoselectafter" manually? Say, change to 5sec?
2. How to make Koreader open the last documents when it starts?
3. How to change default settings on Koreader? I set the fronlight to 49, but when I open Koreader next time, the frontlight is off...

The link (post) you have provided does not work.
Thank you.

1. Yes, in KSM.
2. This is a setting in KOReader, version 2015.11-1152 has a number of new menu options, including a new "Start with:" option that gives you a page with three options:

Start with file browser

Start with history

Start with last file

You would select the last one, and it would get a checkmark. Then the Start with menu option will be "Start with: last file >"

3. There is a "KOBO_LIGHT_ON_START" "Advanced setting" but you may want to open: /.adds/koreader/defaults.lua (using Notepad++) where there are green comments that explain the available settings.

-- Light parameter for Kobo
KOBO_LIGHT_ON_START = -2 -- -1, -2 or 0-100. -1 leaves light as it
-- is, -2 uses 'Kobo eReader.conf', other
-- sets light on start/wake up

KOBO_SYNC_BRIGHTNESS_WITH_NICKEL = true -- Save brightness set in KOreader
-- with nickel's 'Kobo eReader.conf'


Luck;
Ken

I set KOBO_LIGHT_ON_START to 49. Frontlight works, but after sleep mode (through sliding) frontlight turns off. Could you help?

Done some further testing. I've tried some Russian EPUB's, rtf's and pdf's and they all work as they should. The problem is in the DjVu files, though I'm not sure why that would make a difference?

The DjVu's files suffer no abnormalities whatsoever, anything except pure Latin script will make them unreadable and crash KOReader. That means rare punctuation, Cyrillic letters, expanded Latin letters (like ž, š, etc), perhaps more. Once I rename them, on the PC or internally, they instantly become readable.

Hope this info helps!

You could try turning on the "Frontlight gesture controller" and using the tap at the bottom left of the screen to turn the light on and off.

Possibly, there is https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/542 and I've been able to reproduce the crash. Now the only problem is that I know next to nothing about djvulibre.

Thanks. But is there some way to make it work as it should? It does not make sense if I manually turn on the frontlight each time... Is there any FAQ here?
Frankly speaking, I had no problem (almost) with an old version (2years old). The only reason why I have upgraded, was that Koreader crashed every time I tried to open one book (Ulysses). Otherwise it was perfect. I am not complaining, but the old version was easier to set up, I did not except that it would take me several days, till I make the latest version work as the old one used to.... Sorry.

I'm on version 1152 and if I suspend/sleep the device, with the light on, it will, of course go off while it is sleeping but it will turn back on as it returns from the suspend. I take it that is not how it is working for you?

If you mean that you think that the light should come on automatically when it starts, even if it was not on before, then many would not see that as "working as it should", there is always a concern for power consumption with battery powered devices.

Ken

It will not turn back on as it returns from the suspend. This is the problem. When I power off the device, with the light on (actually when I read the book I never turn the light off), it will turn back on as I open Koreader. If I suspend, with the light on, it will not turn back on as it returns from suspend.
In short, If device is on, I need the frontlight to be turned on. Always. I think I made it clear.
On the old version I did not have such problem.

@Name28 It should work the way you like if you set the following in persistent.defaults.lua
Code:
KOBO_LIGHT_ON_START=49
Thanks to poire-z for the hint as I don't really use the frontlight https://github.com/koreader/koreader...ment-325771657

This is very strange, as koreader works totally opposite for me from what you describe. Like we use two different piece of software. Or, maybe it is something in settings (the most probable thing).

When I opened "persistent" one, it was already written KOBO_LIGHT_ON_START=49. Anyway, both in "defaults" and "persistent" I set 49. Problem remains. Any other ideas?

I downloaded from official link. I also think, that it is setting problem, but could not find solution yet.

Sorry, I misunderstood and transmitted the message exactly the wrong way around.
