Calibre database problem
#1  embryo 06-06-2017, 07:31 PM
Well I was opening an issue in github when it went down..
so I will first report my problem here.

* KOReader version: 2015.11-1023-g773e24f
* Device: Aura 2nd edition

I'm setting up a reader for a friend of mine and I installed KSM and KoReader.
I use the User Defined driver to connect with Calibre (v1.48 for XP compatibility)
It does see the books in the .Books directory I have on the internal card.
In the metadata.calibre file I can see that it writes the addresses of the files in the form of:
.Books/<path of the book>, something like .Books/King, Stephen/Stephen King - One For The Road.epub

When I try to use the search Calibre database option, I get an error like this:
File 'mnt/sd/.Books/<correct path to file>' does not exist
How can I make it mnt/onboard/.Books/<correct path to file>
I tried to 'Swap main and card A' in the drivers settings but no luck.

Another thing is that in the driveinfo.calibre file is written "location_code": "main".
Do I miss something here?

Update: github is up again so I opened an issue here.

What do you have for "library" paths in the section of defaults.lua starting about line 155, in Notepad++?

Luck;

Bingo!!
I had copied my defaults.persistent.lua from my Glo, and it had as SEARCH_LIBRARY_PATH the "/mnt/sd/".
Thank you.
