    It'd need to be a redirect, not a symlink
    otherwise you're downloading a file named "latest-nightly"
    or in any case it'd need HTTP header shenanigans :P

    Does the frontend actually care about the filename? (IIRC, zsync stuffs ends up in updated.tar or something)
    Frans de Jonge
    @Frenzie
    No, but I sure do! ;)
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    Getting the version from it maybe, if that bypasses the zsync file
    Frans de Jonge
    @Frenzie
    Hm, perhaps I phrased the PR a bit confusingly?
    It doesn't affect zsync
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    No, just thinking aloud ;)
    Frans de Jonge
    @Frenzie
    The parsing in front is about getting the version though, btw
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    Yeah, that was my train of thought too ^^
    So, yeha, no, looks good. What happened to the isAndroid branch for the tar stuff?
    (there was a -C .. in some platforms and not others, IIRC)
    Frans de Jonge
    @Frenzie
    Oh yeah, I'll add a link to the rationale, which was mostly hidden here: https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/4599#issuecomment-464364860
    wait, wrong link

    @NiLuJe

    @NiLuJe
    Oh, right, no need to create a local tarball if it's no longer using zsync, of course ;)

    The whole zsync idea is pretty cool but I just don't really see it working on Android, even setting aside that the OTA update would still have to be fixed. I got rid of the worst error mostly as a side effect, but it's still not working.

    But think of it:

    1. User downloads OTA update.
    2. Restart to update…
    3. Update says KOReader APK too old, download a new one…
    4. User: :grimacing: :grimacing: :grimacing:
    (not to mention a thing to manually have to update)

    @NiLuJe
    Yeah, tat definitely can't integrate properly on Android

    @Frenzie
    @NiLuJe Do you have any comments on the dummy in koreader/koreader-base#826 ?
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    XSCreenSaver should have a pretty stable API, so, yeah, that sounds sensible.
    I see Fedora is still on the helm of doing weird stuff to Linux :D
    Frans de Jonge
    @Frenzie
    I think it's pretty cool that they went for Wayland in theory.
    I'm more bothered by the Gnome "UX" :P

    Travis seems to be acting almost exceptionally slow atm.

    Can we get KOreader on Weblate?

    Normal PDF to Booklet PDF and vice versa

    I am looking for the following

    Normal Sequential Page PDF: Assume a PDF has 51 or 50 or 53 pages sequentially. Wanted to print in booklet format. Either in single or duplex - backtoback via duplex or non-duplex printer

    Booklet PDF: Assume a PDF is in booklet format. Now i want to print them sequentially page by page in each sheet.

    Which open source or commercial software which will be best suitable for the above?

    Thanks.

    @Frenzie
    I like pdfjam.
    prog20901
    @prog20901
    @Frenzie seems very hard with pdfjam..any good tool and user interface to be used in windows
    Frans de Jonge
    @Frenzie
    Iirc good old Acrobat Reader has pretty decent booklet printing options.

    @NiLuJe Something's going wrong with fbink in the build?
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    Yeah, it needs a bump, I force-pushed a submodule

    @prog20901: you can try pdfsam basic, it is free software too: https://pdfsam.org/

    Is this a known issue, that with -155, dpi is forced to 320? I use 200 on my forma, so it came clear to me immediately when hige UI kicked in ;)
    the checkbox does not even change after selecting any other predefined dpi
    NiLuJe
    @NiLuJe
    Doesn't ring a bell, but I've literally never touched that ;)
    Piotrek Marciniak
    @ptrm
    while ["screen_dpi"] = 200 is still there in the settings.reader.lua
    I mean, the merge happened yesterday ;)
    Piotrek Marciniak
    @ptrm
    Reverting this line manually seems to help only with displaying the checkbox properly beside custom 200 dpi setting, the actual screen dpi remains bigger, though
    Piotrek Marciniak
    @ptrm
    most of the above rant is in koreader/koreader#4726 ;)

    @NiLuJe Your 8-bit patch is causing some incorrect rotation on exit.
    Also I saw fbink painting on the screen in landscape.
