Polite request for Ebook reader

Post by malbri » 2. Jan 2010, 00:47

Hi, Would it be possible to ask for FBReader (http://www.fbreader.org/) to be added to the package list, or any other that auto bookmarks a ebook when closing.

Thank You
mal :)

Hi malbri and welcome :)

Is that any different than what evince does? The next time you open a file, it will be opened at the same page you had when you closed it.

FBreader is made for the Android platform - why would you want it in Salix? :)
