BooKreader is a Linux KDE twin-panel text files reader/viewer specialized in reading e-books.
It supports multiple bookmarks, custom fonts, encoding selection.

The main feature is the reader has two-page style, so it looks like a real book.


Version 0.2
There are mostly performance improvements.
* Rendering speed is now more that 5 times higher.
* Fullscreen mode finally works well.

New version 0.1.1.
Background image resizing bug fixed. Thanks to Alexander Bodnarashik.

 Rudenko Bookreader?

 by maarizwan on: Jun 28 2007

Dear Atlanter,

I thank you for ebook reader. It's a good and much required application for Unix/Linux. Many thanks for creating and maintaining.

Have you seen Rudenko Bookreader, which is also very very nice bookreader, but it is a Windows Only App.

Please consider Rudenko Bookreader interface for betterment your bookreader.

I like your bookreader, and I have a few feature requests for your consideration:

1. Single Page Layout also (in options):
Reason is to have single view, because
two panels/pages distract while reading.

2. Page Background, Text foreground color selections in options.

3. Color Themes:
predefined color schemes which are comfortable and soothing for the eyes. You know that heavy reading could tire the eyes very much.

4. Unicode (utf-8) encoding as default:
utf-8 as default because, unicode supports all text encodings. Loading any document will be rendered properly. Let the user change encoding if required in the options.

5. Zoom in, Zoom out </p>

Thanks for your interest. Regarding your propositions:
1-3: they are planned features as you may see on http://kbookreader/about.
4: you can choose any default encoding you like in the preferences dialog. utf-8 is the greatest encoding but most russian text-books are encoded with cp1251 so choosing it as the default is very comfortably.
5: I suppose you can get the same effect by choosing larger/smaller font size in the preferences dialog.
http://www.rudenko.com/ebook.html - thanks, I'll look there.

 booKreader 0.2 - Eng

 by orbit on: Aug 8 2007

First up, I like what you are developing with BooKreader, well done :)

One thing though, how do you make BooKreader 0.2 display books correctly in English?

I have tried opening my .lit books with EVERY encoding option, and all I get is gibberish?

This happens even on utf-8 encoding.

Can someone suggest a fix.

I'm using Slackware12.

Hi Orbit. Thanks for your good words.
Google and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Reader say that .lit format is a proprietary Microsoft DRM-protected format for their MS Reader.
Unfortunately, BooKreader 0.2 doesn't support this format. Probably it will in further versions.
I suppose you'd better convert your .lit books into plain-text files using .lib->txt converters you may find.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
