Miniclock works fine for me switching from left to right you just may need to advance a page or bring up the menu bar.

It also detects landscape and displays at the same x,y cords in the new rotation. This might be because I’m using a Forma which supports this natively and not through a patch. But it uses the TrueType font settings. Granted the x cord would need to be changed to display it in the same spot you want since you’re going to have a different layout in landscape.

I’m not sure if it’s something you can tie into miniclock but the static orientation modes are (as near as I can find in the dev settings) called inverted portrait and inverted landscape. This looks the device into the given orientation and just allows for flips from top to bottom.

Not sure how the patch adds the functionality to previous devices but it’s gotta be a setting file somewhere.

Of course that doesn’t mean miniclock can see it or differentiate the changes.

Last night I watched the Goodereader review of the Paperwhite 4 and they pointed out that one of the settings is a toggle switch to turn on an in book clock. (I forget at what point they show it. Sorry.)

I immediately thought of this thread.

@LucyOne: That may be a side-effect on the landscape patch on non-Forma device (well, not the patch itself, but, well, you get the idea).

Unless you have shell access to do a few tests to confirm things, assume things will *NOT* behave in landscape mode on devices other than a Forma.

(i.e., I *know* the Forma does rotation right, but I have no idea what happens on other devices. If it's a software rotation, you're screwed forever and ever because there'll be no way to detect it. If it's a broken hardware rotation, that'll be annoying but potentially fixable).

In any case, rotation handling is already a massive mess, I don't want to dive into this for a patch if there's a chance it'll hit mainstream FW, where it'll probably be implemented like on the Forma (one would hope).

TL;DR: Not a miniclock issue. It rightly assumes (0, 0) is the top-left of the screen, if it isn't, blame NTX and their crazy native rotations.

I don't have shell access.
I guess I'll try out some different values for the bitmap clock to get it to the bottom of the screen.

That shouldn't make a difference, it's just that the screen is (probably) inherently lying about where (0, 0) actually is, bitmap/ot won't change that fact .

So... there is this new, really practical patch for activating nightmode via a check box in the settings, but it does not use the settings in nightmode.ini to do this. I assume it uses the settings in Kobo eReader.conf.

That means that the miniclock stays black on white as in the normal screen and does not invert colours. @frostschutz: Would it be possible to refer the miniclock to the invertScreen settings in Kobo eReader.conf so that it checks the status there?

More about the patch here:

You can point miniclock to look at any file / setting / value for that reason... it should work if you tell it what to look for in the miniclock.cfg

You will need to edit the nightmode parameters in your miniclock.cfg file:
Code:
nightmode_file=/mnt/onboard/.kobo/Kobo/Kobo eReader.conf
nightmode_key=InvertScreen
nightmode_value=true

I put the tgz to .kobo. I mean the KoboRoot-MiniClock-20181105b.tgz. Must I rename it to KoboRoot.tgz? I was not sure. I rebootet the Clara. But because I saw no effect, I saw now Clock at the bottom, I rebooted the Clara again. Must be somthing went wrong. Now its on, and its frozen. What can I do? How can I wake it up? Perhaps there is something, I did misunderstand?

You must rename the file, otherwise nothing will be installed.

@LucyOne
OK. And it seems, that it works with Clara, not with Kobo Touch N905. Is that right?
And with my frozen Clara: Do I have to wait, until the battery is empty, or is any other way to wake it up?
