Problem with August version
#1  fbrzvnrnd 08-10-2019, 06:05 AM
HI,

I downloaded and installed the August version. I set the 100 value for touch interval. After the change, I have big problems using pop up and top menu.
I touch and nothing happens, or - with pop up window - I'm not able to select a button (the window moves and the button is not pressed).

Do you mean the hold interval? 100 is very low — the default is 500, after all — but on most devices tapping quickly should still work. If not on the Iliad then perhaps we should consider a device-specific minimum of 200.

If you can't manage to reach the relevant menu then you can always delete or adjust the relevant setting from settings.reader.lua:

Code
 ["ges_hold_interval"] = 100000,
Be sure to keep a backup of the file just in case.

Actually I set 100 the hold interval to highlight text with the same speed I use when I highlight text on paper based book. I tried to set 200, it is better for menu and pop up windows, but it is not good as 100 for fast highlight text and there are still problems with pop up windows.

To be honest I think this is a bug: the hold interval for touch has to be related to interaction with ebook's elements in pages, not with Koreader GUI...

Thank you for the answer

If I understand correctly you'd like to highlight without delay. In that context talking about hold seems like a bit of a distraction. Because if it's difficult to tap in the menu since it's easily interpreted as hold, then it's just as difficult to tap in the document because it'll be interpreted as hold.

oh, maybe I translated incorrectly: but in this thread I understand it was related to gesture's interval:

Nothing, sorry, I have a *lot* of problems with August version, I uninstalled it and I installed the April one. The "gesture's interval option" make strange things, sometimes the bottom menu pops up without I had touched it, sometimes the App become slow and slow, strange multiple refresh of the screen, the TOC takes minutes to show itself... Maybe can be related to Onyx firmware, maybe with 4.0.4 Android, but the April build is the last I can use to read with Onyx M96

Obvious question is obvious: And what happens if you don't modify the default intervals? .

(Which, after all, are the default, and extremely generous specifically to deal both with crappy input devices, and slower humans ).

The stuff about April might suggest an especially buggy Android device, see https://github.com/koreader/android-luajit-launcher/pull/170

But yeah, complaining that you don't like your own gesture intervals is pretty weird. Just put 'em back to the default!

I tried, I put 500 value again. But the troubles continued. It was *really* strange: more I was reading and using it, more it became slow. Flipping pages in "browser file" took more than 60 seconds for each page(!), asking for TOC took minutes, and often failed... the April version looks like a turbo in comparison.

Definitely not an interval issue then I'm afraid.

If you're willing to waste some five minutes installing/uninstalling, there should be a new nightly (afternoony?) with https://github.com/koreader/android-luajit-launcher/pull/170 included within a half hour.

It sounds similar to the problem described in https://github.com/koreader/koreader/issues/5221

Edit: now available at http://build.koreader.rocks/download/nightly/v2019.08-22-gc686278_2019-08-20/
