BOOX calibre APP proposal

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 22:39:54 GMT

I bought a Max Carta last week. Everything is great except it didn't fit well with my reading habit. I use Calibre to send weekly Magazine and daily News to my kindle over email. I read it from there. I'm a native Chinese speaker but use BOOX in English locale. To my surprise, there is a similar send-to-kindle feature in Chinese locale. But it requires you a WeChat account and you must know Chinese. I don't use WeChat and I don't want to the big brother spy on me. So I refuse to use it. In addition, it is not a automate process. You have to login to their account and click button here and there. Android 4.0 already sucks. The user experiences of running Android app on a single core e-ink tablet irritates me so much that I want to smash this $650 gadget. In any case, I figure out a way to automate sending process. I have ownCloud server up and running at home. So I share my Calibre library to ownCloud. The hard part is to write a ownCloud client in Android 4.0 that pull eBook periodically from ownCloud server. I have tested ownCloud Android library and its Android app on BOOX. I can download files from ownCloud server to BOOX without problem in Android 4.0. So I create a github project in my github: If you have any suggestion or want to contribute, please share with me. Thanks!

Mystery and Crime Rymer, James Malcolm: The Black Monk (Illustrated). v1. 22 Jul 2017.

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 21:20:44 GMT

Summary: Mysterious lights, ghosts, and deaths plague the Castle of Brandon in the early years of the 13th century. With Sir Rupert Brandon off to the crusades, The Black Monk has plans to overthrow him with the aid of Agatha and Eldred Weare. Will he succeed? And who is the maniacal Wizard of the Red Cavern? And the crusaders who keep their faces hid with velvet masks? A Note on the Text: The text is that of the first and only known edition published by Edward Lloyd in 52 numbers between March/April 1843 and March 1844 in the classic 8-page per number style, authored anonymously, but generally assumed to be by James Malcolm Rymer, and found in the British Library and online at Nineteenth Century Collections Online. The OCR, editing, and proofreading were performed by myself and reflects as exact as possible the original publication with no modernization of spelling or punctuation.

Talking about myself

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 19:54:39 GMT

I'm new to forums, as I said. 73 years old. Retired. Free lancer writer. I've just entered the e-books world. As obvious, i'm slow to fast technologies, where young people jump and fly over easily ahead. I decided to avoid printed books and carry my library everywhere in my backpack. My main difficulties are related to navigating the software Moon+Reader PRO, since there is no HOW TO USE manual for it, a shame, in short. The site doesn't offer that, nor a chat, besides a very short list of hints, but useless. I tried Google Play as well, but they instructed me to insist after the manufacturer. So, I came here to ask for help. I beg your patience, but want to be responsive in return. Thanks.

Moon+Reader PRO

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 19:20:46 GMT

Hello everybody, I'm new to the forums, I hope not goofing too much. I use a lenovo Yoga Tablet for e-books. My first reader, I've just bought is Moon+Reader PRO. I'm facing too many difficulties with navigation throughout the software. I've searched at the web and found nothing like a "HOW TO USE" for this app. The manufacturer site has no information or instructions either. So far is a matter of guessing and fooling around. Does anybody have instructions for it? I'd appreciate very much. Bitenpaulo.

New IPhone 7 plus

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 16:53:05 GMT

My IPhone 5$ was getting to be a lot of trouble so I made the decision to upgrade and finally decided on the 7 plus. While being a man and carry it in my pockets I find the 7 plus to be very big and heavy with the otterbox case, I am finding it to be great to read ebooks on. Which I guess in the long run means I can travel lighter by not carrying my Kindle every where.

It is possible to avoid the copy into the Calibre's folder?

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 15:19:12 GMT

I have some book but I have not sufficient space to duplicate every file. There is a solution?

Aura H2O Need factory image for unbricking unrecoverable device

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 13:20:03 GMT

Hi to all, I'm following this forum since...well...years for tutorials and support, but now I need to ask by myself because I was not able to find a solution in the forum already. :( One night, without apparent reason, the reader lighted up and started an unwanted updated process which has never finished (white light flashing, black screen, no way to reboot). It was not the first time it was going to happen, I must say, but in this case all the usual ways to reset I tried to before (soft reset, hard reset, corner tapping) have failed. I think the last hope is to open the device and reflash the SD card with a factory image or something. I'm also going to replace the SD with a bigger one, since we're here. The question is: how to flash the (new) card and what I have to put in into (I've not a backup of my system, unfortunately)? tnx allot for your support and have a nice weekend!:help:

calibredb cli needs admin rights (sudo)

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 13:12:23 GMT

Hi, I have problems using calibredb. When I run it without sudo it fails silently (not returning any results), only when I use sudo it succeeds: Code: --------- sudo calibredb list --fields="title,author_sort,tags,cover" --for-machine --------- I tried to repair the rights to my database-file as well as the executables, but that didn’t change anything. Any idea how to fix this? I’m on macOS 10.12 Sierra.

Delete 'phantom' default Library

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 09:15:52 GMT

Ref: Background to my issue is in post titled 'File not empty error' posted July 20, 2017 (Caution: it's wordy. Read only if completely confused with this post.). In short, when installing Calibre in new computer, it created the default-folder "Calibre Library". I created a new folder in order to import my books called "Calibre-Library" (with a dash). Transfer went perfectly. Now, due to some latent OCD tendencies, I want my current (new) folder to be named 'Calibre Library' like the original default. And to delete the original folder. So what I figured I would do is as follows: 1. Rename default folder from 'Calibre Library' to Junky Library 2. Rename NEW folder from 'Calibre-Library' to 'Calibre Library' 3. Delete Junky Library Simple and logical - except that I can't do it. While Calibre is obviously recognizing that I have the two libraries (I have the rename option), it only allows me to 'see' the new library (Calibre-Library) in the options. It looks like as far as Calibre is concerned, the original default-folder-library doesn't exist. Except, thanks to @BetterRed's comments, I know it does since the option to 'rename' does exist (evidently option not present with a single library). So my question... can I rename the default-folder through File Explorer so that I can properly rename new-folder through Calibre? And then delete default-folder through Explorer again. Would I be messing something up in Calibre by doing that? (Yeah... I'm sorry about this post. This has all the makings of an Abbott & Costello routine :( I honestly tried to figure it out on my own. )

Are WAFs/Mesquite dead?

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 05:18:21 GMT

I'm trying to make WebLaunch work on KT3, but I'm having really trouble finding resources about wafs/mesquite, has it got superseeded/outdated on newer firmwares? I've gone through the entire master index, and looks like I'm standing on new grounds.

Nook 7" Tablet Book Not Showing

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 04:27:47 GMT

I can never seem to get consistent results with this device. If I copy an epub to the device it puts it in a folder called Books. If I'm lucky the book will now show up in the Nook library on this device. However, I have no idea what causes this to happen. I fight with it every time trying to get the book in the library. I now have added another book and I see it in the Books folder on the device but it will not show up in my library. What is the proper way to get this file into the library?

Confused Newcomer

Sat, 22 Jul 2017 04:05:45 GMT

This is my first post, and I have spent about 20minutes getting here. But please understand, I'm 86 years old and the registration confirmation email went into my junk mail box. So, here I am..tired but eager. My ambition is to create a library, but I have limited storage space within my computer. "Calibre library" currently sits in my "documents" folder which is a sub-directory of my C: drive, which is where the Calibre program sits in the "Programs 86" folder. Can I set up my "Calibre library" on an external portable hard drive and If so how can I set up the Calibre program to access it there?
