Seasonal distractions

A screenshot from a facebook post (don’t click on the +3) Usually, at this time of year, my social feeds are filled with cries of “Too soon!, too soon!” Not this month. Instead, I am seeing houses getting decked out for Christmas before Thanksgiving is past and inquiries about where to get live potted trees. People are embracing the season before it even begins. Why? Because it’s a way to bring light and color into our domestic environments at a time when we can’t bring people or go where peo...

Minding the Garden: Book Review

M y favorite gardening books to read in winter make me pause and think about what I just read, or bring back memories of my own garden with their vivid descriptions, or trace the development of the author’s garden, complete with maps. Minding the Garden: Lilactree Farm by Brian Bixley does all three, with a dash of wit thrown in for good measure. Garden books that focus on the writing—as opposed to the pictures—are getting harder to find. In the past, they were often collections of e...

Clara HD Kobo Clara HD "whining noise" in silent environment

Hi folks, I recently acquired a Kobo Clara HD, running it with the latest firmware 4.25.15875. As mentioned in this post from early 2019 [1], I can confirm that there is an audible "whining noise" when in a silent environment. After noticing this I had the device replaced once but it did not help. Specifically, I can hear the noise when there is load (like a new page is rendered). When using Koreader or Plato, however, the noise is constant. (I assume because these alternative readers h...

Calibre question

I am trying to synchronize my Calibre and Kindle Oasis. If I find an error in a book in Calibre (e.g. misspelled title, wrong author, whatever), is there an easy way to synchronize the Calibre library on my computer and the Kindle Oasis? The only way I have found is to delete books manually off of Kindle and then down load updated book. It would be nice if there was a command on Calibre that let it compare books in Kindle vs library on the computer and let me update easily (sort of like the way...

Hoping it's the good forum (first post) I don't find in Calibre documentation what is the command-line to code into a script to remote-add new books in a Calibre library running its server. My second question is to find the command-linre to start automayically calibre at a linux-mint boot under Raspberry3.. I knew it under Rasperry2 but dosn't run in Rasperry3.(new calibre version 3.39.1) Thanks if you can help me Philippe

Hi all,

I (Philippe, French) join this forum, especially to find answers about Calibre. I maintain 2 server under Win10 and LinuxMint, and I 'd like to automatize all functions (add, lists, etc..) by command-lines (Dos/Shell) inside bat files and script files.

Formatting in longtext columns

I noticed that the usual formatting shortcuts (Ctrl+I italics, Ctrl+B bold) don't work when typing something into a WYSIWYG longtext column. Is this intend? I believe one of the comments cleaner plugins has a markdown converter, so I can look into that.

KTerm for Kobo?

Hi guys, Coming from Amazon's Kindle world, I'm just starting to get warm with a Kobo Libra H20. Has anyone built a terminal app to run for the kobo? On the kindle I like KTerm (https://www.fabiszewski.net/kindle-terminal/) in combination with a 'screen' session. Just to run a terminal on a device that still works in a sunny environment. Any hints or posts that could guide me?

101 Reasons Why I Oppose Gun Safety & You Probably Do Too

101 Reasons Why I Oppose Gun Safety & You Probably Do Too New Jersey – -(AmmoLand.com)- Here are 101 reasons why I oppose the so-called “Gun Safety” thrown around by gun banners and politicians. When “Gun Safety” is used as Propaganda. When honest citizens are turned into criminals in the name of “Gun Safety.” When groups claiming to want “Gun Safety” provide no gun safety training programs that teach the actual safe use of guns. When the NRA – the #1 genuine Gun Safety organization – is att...

Login failure with userdb with content server

I'm using a headless content server on a Raspberry Pi, and want to segregate two virtual libraries (basically so my kid can see just his books). In the past, with calibre version 2, I had 2 content servers operating on different ports, each attached to a different virtual library. But as of version 3 of calibre, this is no longer possible. So now I've created 2 users, set their passwords, and associated them with a library via the --manage-users option. One of the users has username/password "m...

And apparently Amazon US didn't want to be left out of the "Spend $XX Get $YY Credit" fun either. As with the Amazon UK offer from a couple of days ago, this one showed up for me as a banner ad, but these offers have appeared before via email as well, so if you're interested, keep an eye out either for an ad, or for email. This one has the same nice feature that previous offers had of being retroactive to Nov 23, even if you activate later in the active period. Here are the details, from t...

Example plugin not working?

So I'm new to Python and the Calibre API (but not programming) and was trying to muddle my way through figuring both out by updating an old plugin for v5. Starting to think just redoing the pieces I need for now might be easier. To do this I was starting at the basics with the stuff at https://manual.calibre-ebook.com/creating_plugins.html but the very basic plugin that should update the publisher to "hello world" is not even working. It shows the plugin loaded but importing a new epub does not ...
