Cloud Library & Libby Library to Kindle PW

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 20:13:06 GMT

Is there any way to sideload an ebook borrowed from the library to my Kindle PW? I don't want to remove DRM just to read whilst on loan. My library used to use overdrive but now uses Cloud Library. Thanks!

Native Inform - A Design System for Interactive Fiction!

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 13:46:52 GMT

*Background:* There have been a few ports here of interpreters for playing Interactive Fiction games of the z-code type: * frotz: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=186007 * gargoyle: https://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=223455 Such games can now be created directly on the Kindles! Inform is a command line compiler to create such z-code games. *Original Author:* Graham Nelson (1993) *Source:* * The executable and supporting files were extracted from the Debian Jessie repository(maintainer:Jan Christoph Nordholz - https://packages.debian.org/jessie/inform) and re-packaged for the Kindles. The armel version is needed to run on Kindles(https://packages.debian.org/jessie/armel/inform/download). * The frotz interpreter is a Kindle port by fvek (See 1st link above). *Version:* 6.31 *Website:* http://inform-fiction.org/ *Compatibility:* Should work on all jailbroken kindles from Kindle Touch onwards. *Tested ok on:* pw1, pw3, kt3 *Requires:* * jailbroken kindle * KUAL * kterm terminal emulator. * frotz interpreter (see the 1st link above), for running the compiled z-code games. This is included in the package here. *Installation and usage:* * Extract zip into /mnt/us/extensions/. * Select inform6 from the KUAL menu. This opens kterm in the folder /mnt/us/extensions/inform6/. * Create your own inform story file(a normal text file) with .inf extension and save in the inform6/src/ folder. You can use a command line editor like vi or nano. For help on creating story files, syntax, etc., see links below. * Compile by running script: ./inf.sh from the inform6/ folder. The compiled z-code file with .z5 extension is created in the inform6/ folder. * Run the compiled z-code game with the script ./frz.sh .z5. In the game, type q to quit and return to kterm. *Sample game source files:* There are several sample source files in the src/ folder. Try compiling and running them. Example: ./inf.sh advent. This creates the game file of the original adventure by Crowther and Woods. *Documentation:* Some readmes are in the doc/ folder. *Further reading:* * Inform Designer's Manual: http://inform-fiction.org/manual/download_dm4.html * Inform Beginner's Guide: http://inform-fiction.org/manual/about_ibg.html * IF Theory Reader: http://inform-fiction.org/manual/if_theory.html * A more advanced, "natural language" version: http://inform7.com/ (This still uses the inform6 compiler internally)



Onyx Boox Note 10.3 on Linux

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 13:15:35 GMT

Hi everyone, I just got my Onyx Boox Note and I am trying to connect it to Linux, most recent kernel with Debian/sid. Unfortunately mtp is not reacting, and the unit does not show up as device so I cannot mount it. The unit announces itself as Code: --------- usb 1-8: new high-speed USB device number 9 using xhci_hcd usb 1-8: New USB device found, idVendor=2207, idProduct=0001 usb 1-8: New USB device strings: Mfr=2, Product=3, SerialNumber=4 usb 1-8: Product: Note usb 1-8: Manufacturer: Onyx usb 1-8: SerialNumber: XXXXXXXX --------- but then lots of errors are registered: Code: --------- gvfsd[2037]: Device 0 (VID=2207 and PID=0001) is a Various Viewpia DR/bq Kepler. upowerd[1805]: unhandled action 'bind' on /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-8/1-8:1.0 gvfsd-metadata[2242]: g_udev_device_has_property: assertion 'G_UDEV_IS_DEVICE (device)' failed gvfsd-metadata[2242]: g_udev_device_has_property: assertion 'G_UDEV_IS_DEVICE (device)' failed kernel: usb 1-8: usbfs: process 21421 (DeviceManager) did not claim interface 0 before use upowerd[1805]: unhandled action 'unbind' on /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-8/1-8:1.0 kernel: usb 1-8: reset high-speed USB device number 9 using xhci_hcd gvfsd[2037]: PTP: reading event an error 0x05 occurred kernel: usb 1-8: usbfs: process 21421 (DeviceManager) did not claim interface 0 before use kernel: usb 1-8: usbfs: process 22497 (events) did not claim interface 0 before use kernel: usb 1-8: usbfs: process 22497 (events) did not claim interface 0 before use --------- It leaves me with no way to actually load books onto the unit :-( Any suggestions?



from N96 to Max2 - is it worth?

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 11:01:21 GMT

Hello everyone, I am happy owner for almost 2 years of a Onyx N96ML. I like it very much and I enjoyed the upgrades that came over the time. As I love to study taking notes, underlining and writing my own plane notes, I was thinking if it is a good idea to upgrade to the Max2. Do you think that for hand writing the upgrade will make a big difference? Moreover as I am reading very often before going to sleep do you think that using the Max 2 will be comfortable and not so much of a problem for its weight and size? I am asking because I will eventually sell my loved N96ML :) Thanks



A question about rooting the n96ml+

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 11:01:21 GMT

Has anyone successfully done this? I recently tried debian gnuroot (which does not require root), but my n96ml+ only has a 1gb data partition, so I need to root; but I dont feel confident as I read posts here about bricked n96ml's. If anyone has any advise that would be great. Many thanks.

Sony DD-1EX Electronic Book Player

Fri, 20 Apr 2018 01:46:20 GMT

The ‘Data Discman’ was launched in Japan in 1990, and released the following year in the United States. It was the world’s first electronic book reader (or ‘player’, as Sony called it). Its 3.15 inch miniature discs could store up to 100,000 pages of text, or 32,000 graphics.

InkPad 3 - which Calibre plugin?

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 15:23:58 GMT

Calibre comes with a bunch of plugins/drivers for Pocketbook devices, but none of them are specifically for the InkPad 3. Which of the available choices should I use so that Calibre interacts with the reader?



Forcing Book Updates

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 14:00:31 GMT

So I checked my contents and devices on the amazon website. There were several books (10+ if I recall) that had updates available. I have a Oasis 1 and Oasis 2 and both have my entire library loaded on them. I pressed the update button on the website for each book that said it had an update available. Both Kindles were awake and on wifi and soon enough books started updating on both devices. After awhile it all seemed to be finished. However, I noticed that a couple of the books that should have been updated did not show as "new" tag in my book list on the Oasis 2 even though many others did appear and had the "new" tag on them. I did not keep a list of the books that had updates unfortunately. I am assuming those books did not get the updates. Does anyone know how to force a kindle device to check for updates or if the amazon website tells you if a given device needs a book updated? I hope all that made sense. Thanks



kindle to kobo

Thu, 19 Apr 2018 04:26:00 GMT

Been a while since I visited this site --> You last visited: 09-18-2012 at 08:52 PM Having lurked for the last several weeks, I'm much appreciative of the information here. I was able to successfully download and convert nearly 100% of my mediocre Kindle library to epub this evening for use on my newly ordered KA1 (plus sleep cover). I have some Kobo specific questions I'll pop over there to ask, but wanted to post to the General Discussion forum to let everyone know *Thank You!*

Max 2 and Alternative Stylus

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 22:41:31 GMT

Saw this thread about Wacom pen use for Max 2: ---Quote--- http://bbs.onyx-international.com/t/wacom-pen-compatibility/118 ---End Quote--- For different purposes, got a Bamboo Tip and it turns out to almost work for the Max 2. Wasn't able to sketch in the Note app, but ordinary Android UI interactions appear ok (e.g. touching of buttons). Also had access to an old Galaxy Note 2 stylus which appears fully functional. IIUC, both of these are from Wacom. Anyone else tried other options?



Moon+ reader skipping remainder of paragraph after ellipsis points.

Wed, 18 Apr 2018 15:33:05 GMT

HI! I've been using text to speech in moon+ reader pro for years and love it! Recently, any time there are ellipsis points(...) TTS will skip the remainder of the paragraph. I primarily use epub files but I tried converting from epub to mobi in calibre to see if that helped but still skips anything in a paragraph after ellipsis points. I can use the natural reader app and it does not have that problem but moon reader is my app of choice due to functionality and how well it works with calibre companion. Has anyone else had this issue? Any suggestions? Device- Galaxy s9 Library manager - calibre reader program- moon+ reader pro
