[edit] FBReader on Debian with XFCE

Installing under Debian is quite simple:

# apt-get install fbreader

After that it will appear in XFCE menu (if you use XFCE of course).

[edit] Simple hack to fit the screen

Launching program causes it to exceed Neo screen, making it will useless to read books. That's because packing layout of toolbar that is too long. To fix this, we can disable some unnecessary buttons. Save current configuration of your toolbar, then edit:

# cp /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml.orig
# vi /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml

My suggestion is to edit configuration file like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<toolbar>
 <menuButton id="showLibrary"/>
 <button id="addBook"/>
 <separator/>
 <button id="toc"/>
 <separator/>
 <button id="search"/>
 <button id="findPrevious"/>
 <button id="findNext"/>
 <separator/>
 <button id="preferences"/>
 <button id="rotate"/>
</toolbar>

After that FBReader should fit the screen.

FBReader on debian with XFCE

Installing under debian is quite simple:

# apt-get install fbreader

After that it will appear in XFCE menu (if you use XFCE, of course).

Simple hack to fit on screen

Launching programme causes it to fit the window more, than screen. So, it will be useless to read books. It is proceed because packing layout of toolbar, that too long. To fix this problem, we can disable some unnecessary buttons. First, copy old configuration of your toolbar, then edit:

# cp /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml.orig
# vi /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml

My suggestion is to edit the file like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<toolbar>
       <button id="showLibrary"/>
       <button id="addBook"/>
       <separator/>
       <button id="toc"/>
       <separator/>
       <button id="search"/>
       <button id="findPrevious"/>
       <button id="findNext"/>
       <separator/>
       <button id="preferences"/>
       <button id="rotate"/>
</toolbar>

After that, FBReader will fit on screen.
