Library search

Dear Koreader users and developers, I started using Koreader about a year ago, when I got myself a Likebook Ares. Initially, I had some problems adjusting to the way Koreader deals with my fairly large library, but finally I found a way to use it to my satisfaction, with a combination of search using calibre metadata and tags defined with calibre before sending to the device. This stopped working some days ago, and since the device had a system update, I used this opportunity to upgrade the ...

Destination Design: Amalfi Coast + Capri

One of the things I miss about traveling is all the design inspiration I gather when I go someplace cool. I’m starting a new monthly series blending destinations with design inspiration. I love when the hotels and accommodations of a destination reflect the culture and history of the area and resist the temptation to blend into the sea of sameness. I visited Italy a few times in my twenties but haven’t been back for a long time. I loved its architecture, history, food, and vistas and I was dream...

PDF output (and print) garbled

With a lot of books, when I convert to PDF or print to PDF, the output is almost totally garbled -- looks like a ton of overprinting. I am attaching a screenshot of the garbled conversion as viewed in a PDF reader. It looks like this in all PDF readers, including Kindle. I am able to make a good PDF from it by converting to mobi, importing into Kindle for PC, and then using EPubor Ultimate. But this still feels like a Calibre problem to solve. Thanks!

Folk music matriarch Ellen Harper of Claremont finds there’s ‘Always a Song’

Folk music is meant to bring ordinary people together, and so when Ellen Harper was writing her memoir, she assumed a publicity tour would kick off at her family’s store, the Folk Music Center in Claremont. She could read from her book, take questions, perform a few songs. Instead her tour is being done remotely from the store, including an interview with NPR’s Terry Gross for “Fresh Air.” To pull that off the 73-year-old had to buy a new smartphone that would accommodate the required app. Durin...

K3 Menu disabled???

Hello, I bought a broken Kindle Keyboard Wifi. Managed to bring it back to life, did a factory reset. Everything works, did the system diags, tested all the keyboard, conencted to wifi etc. The only two things that are unusual are: 1) when I press Menu button, nothing happens. I cannot access the menu. 2) when I add books via calibre, they do not show on in the reader. Have you seen this before? Is that something that can be undone in the debug options? Thank you for reading!

Clara HD Magnet for sleep/wake feature ?

Hi to All, I am attempting to transform a cover for my Kobo Clara HD which does not have the sleep/wake feature by adding a magnet to the cover. I wonder if someone could indicate where I might be able to buy an appropriate flat magnet ? I'm thinking of using nano tape to fix it to the inside of the cover and to add a sheet of felt to protect the screen. Thanks for any advice! Rojofo.

How to create easy hoop row covers in the garden

After setting up the row cover, I had no issues whatsoever with my next batch of cole crops. I even saw the pesky cabbage moths flying around. You can buy premade hoops, but they can be expensive.

K3 how to check the serial number when there is no menu?

Hello, I like fixing broken devices. Recently came across a broken Kindle Keyboard (D00901). After replacing the battery, few restarts and a factory reset, the device boots. IT does not read any of the books it has in the memory (I've added new ones via calibre after the factory reset). When I press the @[email protected] button, nothing happens. All other buttons work just fine. I noticed that the entire "system" directory is missing. This makes me wonder if the device is not a victim of a fail...
