Setting up a new Kobo for calibre collections.
#1  Josieb1 03-04-2021, 04:13 AM
I’m getting a Kobo Clara HD tomorrow. I had Kobo’s about four years ago, since then I’ve been exclusively Kindle. I want the Kobo to read fan fiction, and to populate collections on the Kobo directly using calibre. I have some old instructions to work from. Am I correct in that all I really need to add is the Kobo Touch Extended Plugin?

I don’t want to play around too much with the Kobo software, I just want my ebooks to go directly into Collections. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. I’m not technical so I’m going to try and do as little customisation as possible to both calibre and the Kobo software.

You don't need series based collections given the series feature in the current firmware.

Thanks for that. It’s not series based collections, buys it’s good to know.

Your questions have been answered other than this one. But, no, you do not have to install the KoboTouchExtended driver. The built-in KoboTouch driver does this for you. The only reason to install the KoboTouchExtended driver is if you want to read your books as kepubs rather than epubs.

Thank you. I’ll see how I get on before I add anything.
