Installing and setting up koreader on my Kobo

planted: 04/10/2020last tended: 27/11/2021

1. Installation

Installation all worked fine via the zip and script in this thread:

Unzip the zip script, run the script. Bingo, as simple as that.

Launch koreader from the 'Nickel Menu' option in the normal menu.

2. Configuration

2.1. Wallabag

  • Go to the spanner and screwdriver icon.
  • Wallabag / Settings / Configure Wallabag server
  • save the settings empty to create the settings file, then connect the Kobo to laptop and edit .adds/koreader/settings/wallabag.lua
  • you need client credentials from Wallabag, which is in My Account / API clients management when you're logged in. Create a New Client for Kobo. (note… Wallabag doesn't do OAuth, so you have to provide your username and password too, which is not great. But it's in discussion.)
  • Retrieve new articles from server.
