[Device Plugin] PocketBook Improved Driver

Calibre Device Driver For PocketBook Devices

This is an improved device driver for PocketBook devices. I have developed it for my PocketBook Touch HD 3 but it will probably work with other PocketBook devices as well.
Please let me know if this driver works with your device and I will greatly appreciate to add it to the list of supported devices.

Improvements

Read Status
The PocketBook supports to mark a book as read. To synchronize this status with Calibre, create a user defined column of type Yes/No and set its lookup name in the driver settings.
This is a two-way sync, no matter where you mark a book as read (on the device or in Calibre), the read status is synchronized on both platforms.

Database Cleanup
The corresponding database entries on the device are not deleted when you delete a book on the device, leaving lots of abandoned database entries over time. Of course, theses entries doesn't hurt, but to keep the database in a clean and consistent state, a database cleanup is performed on every device connect.

Book Deletion
When deleting a book on the device not all of the corresponding database entries are deleted. Uploading the same book again leads to the effect that the book is not displayed in the library, making it impossible to open it again.

This is fixed in this device driver, deleting a book on the device from Calibre cleans up the database.

Metadata of PDF Files
The PocketBook does not handle the metadata of PDF files correctly, mainly the title and author fields are messed up. This device driver cleans the metadata fields on device connect.

Installation
Download the `pocketbook632.zip` file. Open Calibre, go to Preferences, Advanced, Plugins and choose Load Plugin from file. Choose the `pocketbook632.zip` file. Restart Calibre.

Configure the plugin
Set the lookup name of your custom Yes/No column in the plugin's configuration dialog (default is '#read')


This plugin is currently under active development. Please report any issues with the Github Bug Tracker.

Question

Hi,
and thank you for this useful plugin!

When connect my pb700 (the new Pocketbook Era) with your driver activated, calibre is blocked for "hours".
It says "analyse books" and is very slow doing this.
Is there anything I can do to bring the speed a bit up?

I don't have access to a pb700 device.
Any chance for you to start Calibre in debug mode and post the log here?

Yes I did. That's one of the reasons why I use your plugin.

Just a short add-on:
It doesn't matter if I activate or deactivate the user defined column, the behaviour stays the same.
Maybe it's because of the pocketbook firmware?
I'm on 6.7.775.

I just have the same problem: I know it worked when i installed the driver, but due to other problem with calibre i uninstalled all plugins and reinstalled them again with configuring all by hand.
So now after about 2 weeks i wanted to sync my Inkpad X and didnt have any success.
Starting calibre in debug-mode i found out that your driver isnt used anymore!
I dont have any reference to pocketbook632 in the debug:

I tried deactivating the internal pocketbook-plugins: The Pocketbook701 driver is being used. When i deactivate this driver, no inkpad is being recognized.
Via gui i can setup the pocketbook "Gerät konfigurieren" doesnt have any entry for my #read.
I can configure the plugin directly in extensions -> #read is set.
Now i am gettig out of ideas... What has changed in the meanwhile on my system? What can i do to get it working again?
osx 11.6.x, calibre 6.x

Device-info got from my mac:

PocketBook1040:

Produkt-ID: 0x0001
Hersteller-ID: 0x18d1 (Google Inc.)
Version: 1.01
Seriennummer: 20080411
Geschwindigkeit: Bis zu 480 MBit/s
Hersteller: Obreey

Standort-ID: 0x14300000 / 12
Verfügbare Stromstärke (mA): 500
Erforderliche Stromstärke (mA): 500
Zusätzlicher Betriebsstrom (mA): 0

Edit: I changed the vendor-ID in device.py, zipped the files again, installed and now it syncs.
After thinking around i remember that when i played a lot with howto upload the boos to my (new) PB, i noticed that after deleting books from PB and installing them newly, on the PB the reading-status was like before deleting my books. So it never worked before. I'm so sorry for saying "It works" in previous message #9.

The only thing what is strange after reinstalling the changed plugin:
Code:
DEBUG:   33.6 POCKETBOOK632:  ['Walter Isaacson']

Is it an error?

The read status is two-way sync. No matter where you mark a book as read, it is synced both on the device and in Calibre. You cannot mark a book as unread (you already read it).

So to delete all read statuses you need to delete the read column from calibre too and recreate it.
