Any chance of adding an option to flip the wifi disable switch in Nickel?

Hello,

I start KOReader with

menu_item :main :KOReader :cmd_spawn :/mnt/onboard/.adds/koreader/koreader.sh

and without kfmon installed. KOReader does not update to the last nightly via wifi. I need to do the standard update via manually unarchiving the files using a host computer.

Is this a temporary glitch with KOReader or a proof that I meesed with the setup of NickelMenu?

I use koreader now with nikelmenu without problems. No kfmon installed.
I update koreader to verify and update ok.

@gogu1904: You're quite probably not running a current nightly in the first place.

Otherwise, stuff may be subtly broken (inside OR outside of KOReader).

Well, it was v2020.04.1, but you may be right, it might have been dated April twenty-something, not May. Thank you!

NickelMenu v0.0.3

This release contains minor bugfixes and improvements.
  • Main menu items are now inserted above the `Settings` item rather than `Help`.
  • The separators between main menu items now have consistent coloring with the other items.
  • Additional whitespace around the quiet and timeout arguments for `cmd_spawn`/`cmd_output` is now normalized.
  • An example for starting Telnet/FTP has been added to the documentation.
See the release on GitHub for more details.

Patrick, why are dot files not visible? And it’s possible to fix it somehow, the matter is clearly not in the client, but in ftp on Kobo.

Great work, and the new menu looks very neat.

@Semwize: That appears to be a limitation of the ftpd applet from the stock busybox. It works just fine with a recent busybox build instead.

Thank you so much

I tried to run as /usr/local/BusyBox/busybox ftpd
And all folders are visible. Gorgeous now, thanks.

Great tool! Thanks @geek1011

I'm currently successfully running the following config:

Quote:
menu_item :main :KOReader :cmd_spawn :quiet:/mnt/onboard/.adds/koreader/koreader.sh
menu_item :main :Plato :cmd_spawn :quiet:/mnt/onboard/.adds/plato/plato.sh
menu_item :main :Web Browser :nickel_extras :web_browser
menu_item :main :Rescan Library :nickel_misc :rescan_books_full
menu_item :main :Reboot ower :reboot
I suspect syncthing could easily be launched like this too. Didn't try yet though.

Edit: Offtopic

It's actually the first custom stuff launcher I've tried. I wasn't too fond of trying the others.
So this was the first time I also tried CoolReader for kobo (vlasovsoft). Jesus, it's so so bad ) I'm almost tempted to port the PocketBook version I made to Kobo. If I just had the time...

How did you fix this exactly? Update the busybox installation on their Kobo, or maybe install a new version separately?
If you could point me in the right direction I'd really appreciate it.

@DevonHess: I ship a current busybox build in KoboStuff.

Busybox being a multicall binary, it can easily be unbundled from there with a bit of manual labor.

(Under absolutely no circumstances should you actually *replace* the stock busybox binary, though. Among other potential issues, a fairly immediate one is that I don't build the init applet ^^. And even if I did, it's a potentially terrible idea, don't do it.).

(Speaking of, I am currently working on making said packaging slightly less painful, because shipping 2 full python setups is a tiny bit insane).

I would also add that busybox build from NiLuJe solves the encoding issue. The stock applet did not display the Cyrillic.

@NiLuJe I installed and tweaked my nm config and now everything is working perfectly, thank you.
