Mobipocket Font Switcher

This program switches the font in the Mobipocket viewer to Sans-Serif or Serif (the software default) depending on your choice. It's simple enough to use, you'll need shell access. Unzip, copy, and run.

Let me know if you have any problems or questions.

Note: This has only been tested on an English Language iLiad. I'm not sure what effect (if any) it will have on other languages. Install on others at your own risk.

Edit2: Another Attachment Update. 100% working version as posted by Wallcraft.

Doesn't seem to change anything for me. Should I see anything other than a screen flash after I click the icon to change to Serif?

Same here, and I even rebooted.

I've updated my first post.

I really need to start running dos2unix on my scripts before I upload them. I still have no idea why they always work on my iLiad.

Should the entry "Install Serif Font" be marked with that "cross" icon that denotes a file type the Iliad cannot cope with?

The X just means I didn't give it an icon.

Is the updated package still not working for you?

Nope. Same as last. Brief flicker after clicking the entry, then no change as far as I can see. With and without reboot. If I'm doing something wrong, I can't for the life of me think what it could be...

That's odd. Both scripts are in Unix format, it should work with and without a space in the path.

Have you requested shell access since you reflashed? Can you run any other apps?

Yup - playing Chess and using FBReader and Dillo quite successfully.

Works fine with me. Just the serif font thats on the iLiad really sucks.
How can we change fonts?

Same problem here. Clicking on the Install Serif icon doesn't seem to change anything. I tried without reboot and with reboot. I even tried to use a newly created mobipocket-file as I thought it might be possible, that it saves this somewhere in the fileassociation.

rm /home/intent/mobipocket.param

and try again.

What does this mean, what does it do, and is there an easy way for the non-Linux cognoscenti to do it?
