Could you document this a bit? I'm currently trying to write a replacement PDF reader based on mupdf and GLES and I'd like to use things like that directly

Like many of you I am pretty frustrated by the simple but necessary features missing from the WebOS PDF Reader. At the top of my list is the fact that it doesn't remember the last page you read.

I spent a bit of time working on this issue and attached a version of the IPK that solves this issue. The patched app also includes the awesome goto page patch written by knownboyofno (see this thread) and also the awesome zoom work done by sagipe as discussed here. I intend to make this part of the proposed uber patch being discussed here.

The database I created has support for bookmarks so that will be the next feature I will work on.

I approached this update in a way that makes it pretty easy to reverse, however, it required that I create a database to store the last viewed page for each book and the approach I took requires an ipk install.

Installation

1. Download the application from here
2. Install

Uninstall

1. Delete the directory "/media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.quickoffice.arconfiguration" and all of its contents
2. Delete the directory "/media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.quickoffice.ar/source/patches" and all of its contents
3. Modify the file "/media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/com.quickoffice.ar/source/depends.js"

Change:

"source/patches/PxxView.js", // Patches (modified)
"source/PxxService.js",
"source/patches/PxxArea.js", // Patches (modified)

To:

"source/PxxView.js",
"source/PxxService.js",
"source/PxxArea.js",

4. Reboot the TP

WARNING: I am not responsible for any damage caused by installing and using this patched version of this application. INSTALL AND USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!
So I have not installed an ipk file before, can someone walk me through it?

thanks in advance

When I click the link on my TP it runs preware. That is all you should have to do.

so I don't see any improvement. Darn. Rendering either stops or takes ages. You all must have magical tabs

So all,

I did the update and see no difference. Rendering is an issue and then stops all together. I would like to send a pdf to anyone who has their TP working just to see if it is mine.
