FBReader is an e-book reader programme. It can display txt, fb2, html and various other formats (more details).

FBReader on debian with XFCE

Installing under debian is quite simple:

  1. 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:

  1. cp /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml /usr/share/FBReader/default/toolbar.xml.orig
  2. 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.
