Fri, 30 Sep 2016 15:54:03 GMTIs there any possibility of development of a similar workaround for Kobos, like KindleLazy, a remote control page turn system? To be precise, a KoboLazy? ;):D http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3399123&postcount=1

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 15:31:36 GMTWhen adding books to calibre (dragging from folder to calibre) the author sort is fine Last name, First name. But the author(s) field alway says First name, Last name. Is there a way so my author(s) field will be Last name, First name?

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 13:53:23 GMTOsgood Bradbury: Born ??: died 1931 Excerpt A number of women, of various ages, were arranged on benches, and some three or four lingered about the door as if they had not been able to find room inside for their accommodation. On the countenances of these was an anxious, loving look; and whenever a genteel person passed by, and chanced to turn his face towards them their eyes shone with momentary pleasure, only to be clouded again with that 'hope deferred which maketh the heart sick'.

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 07:52:49 GMTIs there a way to create a virtual library consisting of an arbitrary subset of books? I want to be able to create a virtual library for each project I'm working on, and assign relevant books to it. Currently I'm doing this by using tags, but a virtual library would be a more elegant (and more convenient) solution.
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 06:31:37 GMTI am running calibre-server from /etc/init/calibre-server.conf so it should start when the server starts. It was working but now it doesn't. I get no error message. ---Quote--- description "Calibre (ebook manager) content server" start on runlevel  stop on runlevel [^2345] respawn script exec /usr/bin/calibre-server --with-library "/home/cts/calibre-library" --max-cover "300x400" --port "8035" end script ---End Quote--- I can run exec /usr/bin/calibre-server --with-library "/home/cts/calibre-library" from a command prompt and it works. Any ideas what to check for? I am pretty new to Linux and running the latest version of Ubuntu. It was working fine for a while but now it is broken. Thanks, Paul
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 06:09:02 GMTI have been working my way through the article "Kobo Shelves and Collections". Being tired of my data being collected by all and sundry, I attempted the fix to prevent my collections being synced to Kobo each time I get an update. First I deleted all book files on Kobo using Calibre. Then in Win8.1, I tried... 1. Finding directory.kobo\kobo directory\Kobo eReader.conf 2. Opened this file in notepad 3. Found [ApplicationPreferences] 4. Next line added SyncShelves=false 5. Saved and exited I then synced to Kobo. Out of curiosity - as there were books mentioned in that Kobo eReader.conf file that had not been on my ereader for yonks - I rechecked this file. The line I added - SyncShelves=false - was gone ...... and the book lines were still there e.g. lastLibraryReadingStatusFilter_shelf_filterByBookshelf%28Foreigner%20Short%20Stories%29=removeReadingStatusFilter() How do I make this SynShelves=false, permanent - and how do I clear all memory of what books have previously been synced?
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 04:10:22 GMTI have a Kobo Touch (N905B). I recently installed Calibre 2.68 and after using it with my Kobo I noticed that the ebook database was wiped. I mean that all books just show up as unread (no books are marked read, no books show progress %, all notes gone, etc). Is there any way to restore?
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 02:37:43 GMTI'm putting an ebook into this company called Book Funnel. So they want an epub and a mobi. But they have this check box about KF8. Well, I make my mobi from Kindlegen and those are KF8s so I would need to check the box, right? And although the html cover file has been removed to avoid the "double cover" the cover is still embedded. So all I need to do is take the mobi from KDP, upload it and check the box, right? Thanks.
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 02:34:07 GMTI am trying to add some files that were originally compressed into zip files for easier download. I have unzipped them to a different folder on the computer, and tried to add them as usual. However, the program loads the original .zip files with a prompt to "click here to open". When I click there, I see the unzipped file (usually .html format) in a pop-up window. How do I add the unzipped file to calibre so that I can convert to EPUB format for my Nook? Any suggestions would be welcome.
Fri, 30 Sep 2016 02:29:32 GMTI'm not big on introducing myself anywhere. In short: I am male, middle-aged, moderately computer savvy, and have a deep commitment to fantasy/sci-fi novels, especially those of Alan Dean Foster and Anne MacCaffrey. I have a Nook HD+ that I LOVE, and am currently sorting and editing my e-book collection (in excess of 1300 titles) to put on a micro-SD card for easier reading selection. If anything else is wondered about, feel free to ask. I cannot, however promise to reply to anything that I feel might be too personal.
