Any RemoteInk users able to assist?

I have a PocketBook InkPad 3, which I'm hoping will be compatible with RemoteInk. Planning to run it off a Raspberry Pi 2.

I've downloaded the .zip from Github, however reading the installation instructions I'm already starting to get confused.

https://github.com/borzunov/remoteink

I have a little experience of using CLI, but if things get any more complicated than following a list of instructions, I start to despair.

What for example am i supposed to do about this?:

"Update: Since the version of Pocketbook Pro SDK by Sergei Vlasov is not available for download anymore, you may want to use the official Pocketbook Pro SDK. @calcreg has posted instructions on how to run the client inside an emulator from this version of the SDK on a Linux desktop."

Presumably I need both server and client installed for it to work?

If anyone can lend a helping hand, I'd be most grateful.

There is a link for downloading a pre-built version of the client remoteink.app application on the web page. Try that before building your own from the source code.

Ok, I get it now, thanks.

I've done everything up to where it says "Compiling the client from sources (optional)", and it all appeared to work.

I want to connect the readre via USB, but the instructions given don't work with the InkPad 3:

"On the reader open menu Settings -> Connectivity -> USB Mode and select Network over USB."

as I don't have a 'Connectivity' option in my Settings menu.

Any suggestions?

Support for Network over USB appeared a few years ago and then disappeared soon after. Most PocketBook devices don't support it. The easy solution is to use Network over WiFi.

I see. I'm electrosensitive, so won't be doing that. So, which model/s should I have bought?

It was a while ago that Networking over USB was offered, so I'm not sure if devices with that firmware version are even still for sale.

There is a recent thread in the Developer's forum about rooting recent devices and installing enhancements (including usbnet). I think your best hope is to try that out. Perhaps you can ask the author of the root kit if it would meet your needs.

I hadn't actually noticed the Developers' forum til you mentioned it.

Looks like an awful faff, but I suppose I'll have to give it a go.

Thank you.
