I'm baffled trying to read html and pdf files outside of webOS's normal channels.
Right now my /media/internal partition is locked down read-only (for undeleting purposes), so I
download or copy files to more rooty places. It seems that reader-apps can't read files from most such locations; Web says 'no Internet connection', and Adobe Reader says 'an Error has occured'. Even text files may be unreadable, maybe because the text reader needs a scratch-file in /media/internal. Giving the files a mode of 777, or changing ownership to say, luna:luna or wterm:wterm (I have rooted wTerm) doesn't help.
I *can* read files (at least htmls and text) from the /opt directory, which is a loop-mounted filesystem, but
for some reason it has gone read-only, and resists remounting read-write (maybe it's tied to /media/internal?), so I can't put any more files there.
So, why do readers fail to read these files, and, how can you remount /opt read-write?
Also, I understand there are 'luna send' commands that might work; if so, could you give the full command-lines for 'Web: read my_html_file' and 'Adobe: read my_pdf_file'?
