Hi

Maemo (http://maemo.org) has just released beta of v2.0 SDK and
Internet Tablet OS 2006 edition. In case you are one of those brave
ones, you can install FBReader using new Application Manager. What you
need to do is:
* open the menu
* choose Tools
* choose Application Manager
* click on the title bar to open the menu
* select Tools
* select Application Catalogue
* press New
* in the Web Address field put 'http://only.mawhrin.net/fbreader'
(without apostrophes)
* click OK
* click Close
* click OK on the question "Refresh package list?"
* after selecting the connection and updating the list you will return
to the main screen of Application Manager
* click on "Install new applications"
* you should see fbreader-maemo2, double-click on it
* click "Ok"
* click "Ok" (of course, if you trust us enough to install the
software :))
* after some time (downloading and installing) you will see a dialog
"Select location", click on the button next to "Location:", select
location for FBReader, click "Ok", click "Ok"
* it says "fbreader-maemo2" successfully installed
* click "Ok"
* close Application Manager

Now you are an owner of FBReader on the new platform :)

Known limitations: icon is not exactly the application icon (I'm trying
to figure out what has changed, but...)

As usually, all feedback is very much welcome :)

To make it clean, the url to be put into 'Web Address' field should be
http://only.mawhrin.net/fbreader/maemo/, the previous address will work
for some time, but will be gone after the next release of FBReader.

Sorry for the inconveniences,

That is awesome Misha- I think you are the first one out with a new app
for ITOS'06.

I installed FBreader and am happily reading away. Its quite a
conincidence that the ONLY applicaton that made me hesitate for a few
moments before installing the beta was FBReader-- and you have it
PORTED WITH HOURS. Cool. Thanks a lot for your work.

Hello Misha,

Is there any way to download this package and install it in offline
mode?

I will need to work on that :( libenca package (which is required for
fbreader to run) was just re-compiled, and for offline installation it
needs to be modified. I will try to fix it later today and post updated
instructions here.

Try two packages:

*
http://only.mawhrin.net/fbreader/maemo/pool/user/e/enca/libenca0_1.9-2_armel.deb
*
http://only.mawhrin.net/fbreader/maemo/pool/user/f/fbreader-maemo2/fbreader-maemo2_0.7.4b1_armel.deb

You must install first package first and only then the second package.
I'd appreciate feedback if it was successful

Hi Element

Can you please describe a bit more verbosely what steps you performed?
What exactly you mean when you say "settings were not saved"?

Well, I did some changes like color of font and background,
scrolling...
After i close FBreader and reopen again, it came back to default.
Also, when i am opening reader, it always shows me default screen with
help text.

1. do your settings stay if do just this? (without opening another
book)
2. how do you close your application? (menu:close, or [x])
3. do you use the latest version? (just to make sure)
