    The py27-apsw

    Hi,

    Iam trying to install calibre on freenas.
    Created the jail and on shell i did pkg install calibre but i had this info:

    The py27-apsw port currently does not have a maintainer. As a result, it is
    more likely to have unresolved issues, not be up-to-date, or even be removed in the future

    Also i have others error: "sysctl: unknown oid 'compat.linux.osrelease'
    linuxulator is not (kld)loaded, exiting
    pkg: PRE-INSTALL script failed "

    I cannot run calibre.

    Debian calibre 2.55 install fails

    https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugr...cgi?bug=827922

    I know - the problem probably lies elsewhere. For me, it does not affect debian systems in testing and sid. It does cause a seg fault for new installs in debian testing.

    I am looking forward to 2.60

     
    M3 and iTunes - duplicate eBooks renamed

    I am trying to download ebooks to M3 using the iTunes interface and noticed that some ebooks (imported into M3 yesterday) have different names (with a suffix) and so iTunes does not know there are duplicates.

    Screenshot attached.

    The books dated yesterday in the screenshot were imported using the Calibre server and all have a suffix added to the name. iTunes does not add a suffix and the names are the same as shown on the right of the screenshot taken from File Explorer.

    :help:

    Remove DRM from Kindle Fire without Kindle for PC?

    Is there a way to remove the DRM from Kindle Fire files without using Kindle for PC? For example, I have files that were sent to my kindle.com email address to be delivered to my Kindle. I want to remove the DRM from these files.

    Amazon does not allow you to send these books/files to Kindle for PC. I have the file on my computer in .prc file but it is not removing the DRM when I upload the file to Calibre. (I have the DeDRM plugin from Alf)

    Any ideas?

     
    2 differently formatted pdfs for the same book.

    I store a lot of research papers in Calibre.

    Most papers come in the standard 2-column layout, not optimal for reading on Kindle. I have found the k2pdfopt (http://www.willus.com/k2pdfopt/) convertor good for optimising djvu/pdfs for kindle and also smartphones.

    I would like to retain the original pdf along with the optimized one but calibre allows only one pdf to be stored for a book. Is there a way I can keep 2 differently formatted pdfs for the same book?

    Kobo Glod HD queries before buying

    I'm new here! I'm looking to replace my Sony PRS-T1 which keeps crashing when opening the dictionary.

    I have a few questions on Kobo Glo HD which I haven't found answers to in the several reviews I've read:
    • What dictionary does Glo HD use? Does it have more esoteric words, like H.P. Lovecraft likes to use (e.g. eldritch, charnel)?
    • What is the tint of the color of the backlight? Does it have a blue tint? Asking this as blue light messes with circadian rhythms, and I like reading before bed. Obviously I can use a normal reading light, but would be nice to know if comfortlight is suitable for bedside reading.
    • How reliable is the Glo HD, and Kobos in general? Obviously asking this as I need to replace the expensive Sony after only a few years of use because it's essentially useless due to hangs and crashes.
    • Is it really usable for reading multi-column .pdf files? I've seen The eBook Reader PDF demo on youtube, and it seems like it might be rather fiddly. Not a deal breaker, but would be for a friend who's also looking at Glo HD.

     
    Upgrade from 2.53 to 2.60 gives "Error Communicating with Device"

    I have been running Calibre for several years now. Just today I upgraded from version 2.53 to 2.60 and immediately started getting "Error Communicating with Device" whenever I plug in my eReader. Full error message is below. Is there something I can do to resolve this?

    Error communicating with device: Kobo Aura H20

    Hello,

    I already tried to install the beta plugin, sign out and in again on the Kobo, but I still have the error.

    calibre, version 2.60.0
    ERROR: Error: Error communicating with device

    Is there anything else I can try?

    Thanks in advance!

     
    Collocation Dictionary

    Hi folks!

    My question is that there is any chance to make collocation (thesaurus) dictionary to e-readers (i.e.: glo hd) or that is not possible.
    Thanks for answers!

     
    Problem with rendering of text.

    I have discovered some problems with the rendering of text when a paragraph with print in normal size is followed by a paragraph with smaller print. The small print actually gets larger than the normal print.

    Here are a few pictures that illustrate this.

    The first picture is a screenshot from Calibre's reader, this picture shows what it ought to look like:




    The next picture shows the rendering of Marvin 2, also ok.





    The next one shows the result using Marvin 3, the "small" print is actually larger than the normal print.




    And finally a picture using Marvin 3, but here there is chosen publisher layout, same problem

     
    Android 4.4, ? whats going on

    Hi,

    Does nyone know whats going on with the Kitkat developement.
    Since the first release in 2015 booxtor never posted anything new about kitkat.

    I already use it since the first day on my M96Plus, and i really love the advanteges of kitkat. It actually runs pretty smooth, with some Beta-bugs. But sure, this beta-tester-release is buggy, so it would be nice to get a official or at least less buggy version soon.

    Anyone some news on that ?

    greets

    Notger
