    Hi, is there an option to disable power button (I don't want to suspend happen when power button is pressed)?
    Piotr Witosławski
    @Witos

    does it supports search the text inside of all the ebooks being added?
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    No, you can only search inside the currently opened document.

    @brightinnovator
    @NiLuJe I don't see any ebook has such feature...assume i have huge study materials in ebook format.....how to search quickly in all the books and wanted to go through the couple of occurences quickly. is there is any other way?
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    Kindle.
    brightinnovator
    @brightinnovator
    but the books should be available in kindle format..not all books can be added to the kindle device
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    Calibre.
    brightinnovator
    @brightinnovator
    Calibre doesn't search inside the imported books
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    No, but it can convert anything you throw at it in a format a Kindle can read.
    brightinnovator
    @brightinnovator
    but i don't have a kindle device..can we just install kindle device software in pc and do the search..will it allow?
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    No, I was just answering your question "is there a device that can do that?"
    brightinnovator
    @brightinnovator
    ok..what i understood is...kindle can search inside the contents..so we can convert any ebook as kindle format or save as kindle format using calibre...so if we buy kindle device all problems will be solved. is that right
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    Yup
    brightinnovator
    @brightinnovator
    but my problem is i want to do it in PC as well...as screen would be less in kindle
    does kindle supports HDMI to get connected with bigger screen monitor
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    No
    Unless the Fires kept the indexing feature, but I'm not familiar with the Fire ecosystem (at all)
    brightinnovator
    @brightinnovator
    so the only way i can get rid off this is to find a software which works in all devices and provides full text search supports to search
    PC, Tablet, Mobile
    i don't know whether any single software which has this capability

    brightinnovator (brightinnovator) I worked for egnyte.com for a while, a paid storage et al. service, and discover they index zip files contents by mime type, thiugh not recognizing epubs as such. So I am able to full text search my books based on that, though no navigation inside an epub is possible (edit: on browser version you can see a preview)
    However that's a paid service, though I am no longer affiliated ;)

    Any ideas why koxtoolchaing fails me on Ubuntu 20.04? https://gist.github.com/ptrm/2ec44faf2a86ac48d9427870a9e3d5a0
    Above is a part of config.log that seems relevant
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    Do you have CFLAGS & co set in your ENV?
    (I don't recall if the old branch of ct-ng autodetects that, the new one does and shouts at you)

    Hi guys, I'm looking to clean-install KOReader on my PW3, is it safe to backup 'book' or should I also backup a bookmarks file anywhere else?
    Also, is this the main real-time chat for KOReader?
    Piotrek Marciniak
    @ptrm:matrix.org
    [m]
    @NiLuJe no CFLAGS manually set, I assumed it's the gen-tc that takes care of that :D Will try branches then

    @Frenzie
    @vencd:matrix.org Not sure what you mean by 'book'. That sounds like a folder you made yourself?
    vencd
    @vencd:matrix.org
    [m]
    Sorry! Books as in, the main document folder for KOReader @Frenzie
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    There's no "main document folder for KOReader"
    We inherit the platform's
    @ptrm Actually, yeah, it should. I'd blame Ubuntu? ^^. FWIW, I built the mk7 TC from the new branch the other day without much trouble (besides make oldconfig crapping out for some reason)
    Also, having an idea of which configure is actually failing would be helpful ^^
    I assume it's ct-ng's? Because the env cleaning is done after that.
    As it's still a native build, you're not supposed to have cross flags in the env at that time. And getting rid of 'em too early would be potentially problematic (e.g., clang's --target).

    Yeah the logs are ct-ng's. I too assumed it won't need much config after having built android target successfully and easily (apart from accepting the licenses of one sdk, which was a tricky surprise -.- )

    If I clean install, will bookmarks be saved?
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    Depends what you mean by "clean install"
    But in any case, bookmarks are stored outside of KOReader's folder, in the book's sidecar folders
    As far as KOReader's folder is concerned, the list of settings is roughly
    KO_FILES="cache/calibre/libraries.lua cache/calibre/books.dat defaults.persistent.lua history.lua settings.reader.lua"
    KO_FOLDERS="clipboard history settings styletweaks"
    vencd
    @vencd:matrix.org
    [m]
    I mean the clean install option in KUAL
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    That will just delete the koreader folder, so, depends on what exactly you want to preserve. If it's only bookmarks, you're good, if not, see my previous answer.
    vencd

    Bookmarks and highlights I forgot to add.*

    Same thing
