PbDbFixer

Motivation

Since Pocketbook has some problems with extracting metadata correctly from EPUB files, this program tries fix these issues. It tries to identify wrong database entries and fix it by reading the corresponding epub metadata.

Compatibility

This program is tested only on a PocketBook Touch HD 3 device (software version 6.1.900). It might work with other PocketBook devices/software versions. Please tell me, if it works for you (and do make a backup of the explorer-3.db file before trying!).

Installation and Usage

Just copy the executable file into the PocketBook's application directory. If you encounter duplicate authors in the PocketBook's library, open the applications screen and tap on the PbDbFixer icon.

Build

To be able to build PbDbFixer, you have to have the cross compiler for ARM CPUs installed. On Arch Linux, the AUR package arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc75-linaro-bin does the job. Don't forget to tell cargo which compiler/linker it has to invoke. In my case, I had to edit ~/.cargo/config:

[target.arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi]
linker = "arm-linux-gnueabi-gcc"

Now you can easily compile the stuff by invoking

cargo build --release --target=arm-unknown-linux-gnueabi
