Search not working since update.

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 15:29:10 GMT

For some reason after updating to version 3 of calibre the search function no longer works correctly. At best it will only point me to the first book containing the term I am looking for. I hate this, I want it to show me ALL of the books that contain the search term. I've tried every thing to stop this annoyance, but nothing has worked. I want to roll back to a version 2. Anyone else? EDIT: I reverted back to an earlier version and the search function is now working properly. Mods delete this thread if needed. Thanks.

Other Fiction Racowitza, Helene von: Gräfin Vera V.1 [German] 25.02.2018

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 14:38:45 GMT

Helene von Dönniges, auch Helene von Döniges, verwitwete Helene von Racowitza, verh. Helene Friedmann, verh. Helene von Schewitsch, (* 21. März 1843 in Berlin; † 1. Oktober 1911) war eine deutsche Schriftstellerin und Theaterschauspielerin (aus Wikipedia). Der im Jahr 1882 erschienene Roman "Gräfin Vera" ist ein recht groß angelegter Liebesroman, der in russischen Adelskreisen spielt, deren Oberflächlichkeit und Luxusbesessenheit die Verfasserin zwar genüsslich persifliert, von deren Lebensstil sie aber anderseits offensichtlich selbst angetan ist. Ein schwer reicher Edelmann erlaubt sich, seine eigene Frau nicht nur zu lieben, sondern ihr auch ihre bedenklichen Eskapaden nachzusehen. Die schriftstellerische Qualität des Romans ist eher durchschnittlich; die Verfasserin muss aber bedeutende andere Vorzüge besessen haben, denn sie war es, derentwegen der Arbeiterführer Ferdinand Lassalle sich duellweise vorzeitig um seinen Revolutionärsruhm gebracht hat (wobei ich mich – als Bürgerlicher – frage, welche Eigenschaft ihm bei seinem Zivilstand eigentlich die Satisfaktionsfähigkeit verschafft hat). Die Rechtschreibung wurde aktualisiert.

Calibre Frozen After Disk Space Error

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 06:05:39 GMT

Calibre froze while queueing books for conversion, first notifying me there wasn't enough disk space. After, I freed space and hit okay it just sat there about an hour until I force-quit it in the Activity Monitor. I restarted and all seems to be good. None of the books were in the process of converting (that I could tell) so hopefully nothing was corrupted. Not unusual behavior but wanted to share the experience with the devs. Thanks for everything! -pcr

organizing books on Nook and Kindle

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 00:52:58 GMT

I have both a Kindle & a Nook. I have my Kindle books on my Nook (I prefer the Nook). What I want to know if once my books have had the Kindle file format changed and sent to my Nook. Will these books be organized like the Nook does - a separate folder (by author) instead of showing all the books on the Kindle's home screen. I have several Kindle large series that I would like to be organized like the Nooks. Can and how can I do this.

PRS-950 Hardshell Case

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 23:22:13 GMT

For maximum travel protection the linked Hermitshell case just fits the Sony PRS-950 reader in the non-illuminated factory folder style case. A snug fit so the 950 in the Sony folder case is not going to rattle around. The PRS-900 is a very slightly looser fit. The case is considerably thinner and smaller externally than the PRS-900 Case Logic clamshell case while slightly larger internally. Available in 5 colors including red, hot pink and orange for maximum visibility. Black and blue for conservatives.

Can someone get me up to speed with Kobo development?

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 23:22:02 GMT

Dear Community, Could someone get me up to speed with developing apps for Kobo (specifically Kobo Glo)? I bought one for cheaps, planning to just glue it to my wall and use it as a fancy calendar or something like that. Tiny setback is that I bricked the touchscreen while setting it up, but that's cool because I wasn't planning on using it anyways. I've poked around a little bit and found that it uses Qt, specifically Qt 5.2. Is there a tutorial on how to get set up with Qt for arm (embedded)? Just like a hello world kind of situation that I can tinker with? Also, how much of the default system can I delete? I mean I have a backup of anything, but is there a tutorial on how to just throw everything away (I don't need any of the default GUI stuff, I want it to boot right into my app). For the wifi: I found some references to wpa_supplicant, am I right in assuming that it's using that to connect to wifi? If so, I think I can probably just hardcode my wifi into the config, and in case it changes I can manually edit it, right? Cheers, xfbs!

Where To Buy eBooks?

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 22:31:54 GMT

For years I've been buying and reading Kindle books on my M92 utilizing the Apprentice Alf option with Calibre. But since Amazon pulled a dirty trick via an update for Kindle that can't be done any more. (Unless one reverts to a previous Kindle version.) Now I have a Max Carta as well, and wonder if the books available for Kindle are also available in formats that can without technical acrobacy be read on the Max Carta. I found this list: "Where To Buy eBooks" Can anyone advise me?

Multiple Narrators

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 22:18:00 GMT

I just started listening to Manhattan Beach by Jennifer Egan. It goes back and forth between a female and male narrator depending on the point of view in the story. I find it annoying, and it takes you out of the story every time it switches. Is this common to have multiple voices? Perhaps I've just never come across it before. Do others like or hate it? Maybe it depends on the story.

Kindle and Calibre

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 21:41:02 GMT

Hi everyone glad to meet you all. I have a problem with Calibre in that I went to the trouble of putting all my books into Collections only to find when I sent them to my Kindle 3 they didnt carry across so I have to do them all again but on my Kindle which is very time consuming as you have to do each one individually as far as I know. Would love some help if poss:help:

swap_around_comma and multiple authors

Sat, 24 Feb 2018 20:28:03 GMT

My library has all authors in LN, FN format (both authors and author_sort). The builtin swap_around_comma nicely handles the transformation of LN, FN to FN LN. But it is not capable to deal with multiple authors (e.g., LN1, FN1 & LN2, FN2). I assume this limitation is intentional. What would be the best way to transform a value with multiple authors?
