    Actually looks like most do.
    I haven't tried this so I don't know if it works.
    WARNING: It may be used by beta testers or users of last resort. One thing it may do is completely wipe books, settings, fonts and put the Tolino as when it was first turned on. It may be something that's handy to keep in the toolbox.

    The website is in German and I used Chrome to translate. I also pasted it in Edge and it loaded correctly.

    Miklós Jósika (deutsch Baron Nicolaus Jósika; * 28. April 1794 in Turda, Siebenbürgen; † 27. Februar 1865 in Dresden) war ein ungarischer Romanschriftsteller … Neben politischen und belletristischen Beiträgen für Zeitungen und Sammelwerke hat Jósika dann bis zur Revolution von 1848 unter steigendem Beifall an die 60 Bände Romane veröffentlicht, die von einem tiefen Studium des ungarischen Charakters und Volkslebens zeugen und in lebendigem Stil geschrieben sind (aus Wikipedia). Nach Österreichisches Biographisches Lexikon unter demselben Stichwort (https://www.biographien.ac.at/oebl/o..._1794_1865.xml) lautet der richtige Name Jósika von Branyicska. Dort finden wir auch den Hinweis, dass er den historischen Roman in Ungarn einführte und zunächst nach englischen, dann nach französischen Vorbildern arbeitete. Irgendwo las ich die Bezeichnung als "ungarischer Walter Scott".
    Der Roman "Die Leichtsinnigen" (erschienen 1837, übersetzt von Herrmann – oder Hermann – Klein [1805–1889]) entspricht eher der zuletzt genannten Charakterisierung. Es handelt sich trotz der angekündigten psychologischen Studie um einen Abenteuerroman, in dem man – leider – nur wenig über den ungarischen Charakter und gar nichts über das Volksleben erfährt, da die Geschichte weitgehend in Kanada und England handelt. Dennoch ist sie spannend geschrieben, schreckt nicht vor grotesk anmutenden, gleichwohl nicht unrealistischen Szenen zurück und entbehrt nicht eines Versuchs der psychologischen Erklärung des Charaktermusters "Leichtsinn".

    Die Rechtschreibung wurde aktualisiert.

    Ein Weihnachtsgeschenk für einen in Ungarn lebenden Freund (weihnachtliche Grüße!).

    When I got the Mars I was excited to have a more general purposes e-ink tablet. Reviews were good with some noting the speed of them compared to others. And reviews and questions showed that it either did or did not work for Nook app depending on the responder.

    When I got it I found that current Nook app would not work but that an older version would. Now that no longer works either. While that older app wasn’t exactly wonderful, it worked well enough to use.

    After looking at some other android e-ink tablets I’ve given up. All are sluggish to some extent and I know that it is caused by most apps not accounting for the differences between how e-ink and lcd work. I can live with the sluggishness. I won’t live with not working for a fairly major e-book provider.

    There were several who asked for a plugin which can get and store the decimal rating of goodreads.
    I gave it a try, just because I like to tackle a problem. But I am not a very good programmer. So this is more or less for fun and there sure will be better/smarter ways to solve this.

    For this you need two plugins:

    1. Goodreads_rating
    You can find it here or download it within calibre->preferences->plugins.

    and
    2. F_rating

    At the main menu you see the option frating with an ugly icon and a menu.
    The menu has two options
    a. Set decimal rating.
    This function will first check if the column exists, if not it will be created ( and you have to restart Calibre - see dialog-info when this happens).
    If the column exists, the function will search for all the records with '#PrB.ratingt#' in the publisher field.
    It will split those publisher-fields into publisher and rating,
    The last item is placed in a custom column: gr_ratings
    The separator '#PrB.ratingt#' will be deleted
    In the publisher-field remains just the publisher's name.
    Direct clicking the ugly icon, starts also this function.

    b. Check and create custom column.
    There will be info with the results of the check.
    If the column is created you have to restart calibre.

    Custom column
    You can also create the custom column by the gui, use the next values.
    Only the text of the label can be of your own choise.•name: gr1
    •label: gr_ratings
    •type: decimal or float

    INSTALLATION (Thanks to arialvetica)

    1. Download both linked plugins (current version is always at the bottom of the original post).
    2. Install both linked plugins. To do this, click on "Preferences," then under the "Advanced" heading click on "Plugins." For each plugin, click on "Load plugin from file." Find the ZIP file you just downloaded, click "Open." Click "Yes" on the "Are you sure?" dialogue. Restart calibre after installing plugins.
    3. There will be a new icon (looks like an orange starburst) in the main menu, called Frating. It has a menu with two options:
    - Set decimal rating;
    - Check and create custum column;

    But you can also click the icon itself and it will run: set decimal rating;
    This will check if there is already a custom column for this.
    If not it wil create one and you have to restart calibre.
    If the check is true, it will go on with putting the decimal rating in the custom column.

    For creating the column you can also select the menu option: "Check and create custom column." (Optional: You can change the Column Heading through Preferences: Add Your Own Columns. Double-click on the #gr1 column, and type whatever you prefer in the "Column Heading" field. Do NOT change the lookup name.)


    USAGE


    To download ratings for an individual book (good for checking if you've done setup correctly.)
    1. Click on a book title in the main calibre window.
    2. Click on "Edit metadata individually".
    3. Next to "Download metadata," click on the Configure Download icon (looks like a "Preferences/Settings" icon, hover-text should read "Change how calibre downloads metadata.")
    4. Ensure "Goodreads_Rating" is the ONLY checked Source, then Apply changes.
    5. Click on "Download metadata".
    6. When the download is complete, click "OK" first for the metadata, then "OK" again for the cover.
    7. Click "OK" again to save changes and close the Edit Metadata window.
    8. Click on the "Run frating" icon (looks like an orange starburst).
    After this processes, you'll see a dialogue box either confirming whether it worked ("Finished extracting rating from publisherfield - for a total of X books") or not ("Finished extracting rating from publisherfield - for a total of 0 books"). Click OK to close the dialogue. Now, in the main calibre window, in this book's row and under the gr_ratings column, you should see a number ranging from 0.0 to 5.0.

    To download ratings in bulk
    1. Select a range of books in the main calibre window.
    2. Click on "Download metadata and covers".
    3. Click on "Configure Download".
    4. Ensure "Goodreads_Rating" is the ONLY checked Source, then Apply changes.
    5. Click on "Download only metadata".
    6. When the download is complete, click "Yes".
    7. Click "OK" again to save changes and close the Edit Metadata window.
    8. Click on the "Run F_rating" icon (looks like an orange starburst).
    9. Click on "Set decimal retings." After this processes, you'll see a dialogue box either confirming whether it worked ("Finished extracting rating from publisherfield - for a total of X books") or not ("Finished extracting rating from publisherfield - for a total of 0 books"). Click OK to close the dialogue. Now, in the main calibre window, in each book's row and under the gr_ratings column, you should see a number ranging from 0.0 to 5.0.

    !NOTE: When downloading metadata from your usual sources (to get book covers, tags, etc), you'll need to go back to the "Configure Download" window and select your preferred sources. When downloading Goodreads Decimal Ratings, you'll need to repeat the steps to download ONLY from Goodreads_Rating.

    I'm curious abut what strategies people use in a case like this.

    I was given a Google Nexus 7 tablet by a friend who has no use for it. It's the 2012 Grouper model, with an nVidia Tegra CPU, 1280x800 screen, 1GB RAM, 16GB storage, and running Lollipop 5.1.1. The chap who passed it along said "It's really slow. You'll want to downgrade the OS." I did a factory reset, rooted, and started configuring. My use case is eBook viewer, books stored on device, and online in a pinch.

    Yes, it's really slow. Used offline as eBook viewer, it's fast enough. Go online and things go downhill fast. (It rebooted last night trying to visit the Play Store for app updates.) Several different options exist for installing a different Android version, including KitKat, Marshmallow, and Nougat. It will be a time consuming process regardless of which I install, and I'll have to do a factory reset to do it.

    A big part of the time will be recreating the eBook collection on device. What I'd like to do would be to compile a list of what is currently there, in a form I can pass to Calibre and say "Add these books to device", then go do other things and come back when its done.

    When the device is plugged in, Calibre will inventory the content on device, and books on device will get a checkmark in a on device column in the master library list. I think what I'd like to do is create a new column as a boolean value to specifically record which books are on that device, and automatically insert a yes value to that column for any book that appears in the on device list. When I need to recreate the collection on device, I create a virtual library of the books in that column, and just add the whole virtual library.

    Is there a convenient way of doing that mapping of books on the plugged in device to a column meant to store that status? I have more than one device managed by Calibre, and I'd like to create normally hidden columns just to store a "what's on that device" list for reference when the device isn't plugged in.

    My fallback notion is "Copy all books off device to a temp directory, create a new empty Calibre Library, then add the books copied off the device it it, and use the new Calibre Library to add them back." That's doable, but it seems more involved than it really needs to be.

    Suggestions?

    For this you need two plugins:

    I changed the original plugin ( thanks to Kiwidude) just a little.

    Some of the epubs I've bought have .png images. I've been trying to convert and substitute them with their .jpeg equivalent (same file name, different format), but the only way I can seem to be doing so with no hassle is through Calibre Editor using the 'substitute image' option. However, that is quite slow as there's no batch option for doing that, and I have one particular epub that contains 200+ images.
    Is there a way I can substitute all of them in one go and still have a functioning epub at the end?

    Greetings,

    Have two Clara's they seem to both be stuck on sleeping frequently. I plug in and hold the power button to fix I think (it reboots). Could be that they're just getting enough juice and auto rebooting not sure. Thing is battery is like at 20% after reboot, not super low.

    Is this a known bug? Been happening a lot, didn't happen for first year or so. Definitely have to plug in to get it back up which is pretty annoying.

    On 4.18.13737. Searched forum but only found threads here and there. This is pretty consistent and obvious.

    I am setting up Calibre on a new Windows 10 PC. Calibre is in Dropbox. I have tried pointing Calibre to the existing library and I keep getting the message that the library is invalid. My library has over 6000 books and the metadata files are there.

    I've tried the Import/Export tool. The Switch Library tool and the Welcome Wizard. I have the same issues with all three. I've done this previously with multiple pcs so not sure exactly what the issue is. Can anyone guide me through this please?

    Thanks

    Been a user for several years with nary a problem till lately. I do the send to device in Cal and it downloads them to CC just fine, but the bookshelf view doesn't update no matter what. The database must hold them as I load them into me tablet reader fine.


    The only thing that changed is I now have 800 or so books in CC and while it holds them it won't recognize them. My reader app uses CC's database as a source so I can't delete a book in CC without loosing it in my reader.


    Please take a look and either fix it or offer a workaround.

    I bought a new tablet with a new sdcard, and now I can no longer use Moon Reader because I keep getting the message "choose root of ext sdcard to grant permission." Looking online was of no help. The only info is to enable documents in the app settings, but it is already enabled. I installed Cool Reader and it does not have the problem. Any suggestions?

    Looking for a solution, I found a single thread with the same problem. In there, it is suggested to change the name of the computer. But the issue doesn't seem exactly the same as mine....

    For details, I'm using Arch Linux and Calibre 4.5.0.

    Thank you in advance,
    Auriculares.
