@ugjdgdto, my inexperience with PKGBUILD shows. Thanks for having my back!

@naglis Thanks!

By the way, did you perhaps forget to include the patch in source=()?

@ugjdgdto thank you for the feedback! I've included the icon fix and a patch for /usr/share/mime/packages/thorium.xml in 1.7.0-2.

There is also another issue which all normal ZIP files use the x-office-document icon after installing Thorium 1.7.0.

I guess we will have to patch /usr/share/mime/packages/thorium.xml...

Fixing the "no icon" issue on KDE:

mv ${pkgdir}/usr/share/icons/hicolor/0x0 ${pkgdir}/usr/share/icons/hicolor/1024x1024
install -Dm 644 "${pkgdir}/usr/share/icons/hicolor/1024x1024/apps/thorium.png" "${pkgdir}/usr/share/pixmaps/thorium.png"

Hi @ashton, could you be more specific?

ashton commented on 2021-04-12 14:57

Great reader, though no icon?

Thanks @naglis. I just checked it again with my epub that has videos. Thorium failed to import the large (~300MB) epub.

The readium app on chromium still works though. Dunno when they will actually disable chrome apps.

I am not sure. awesome-readium also lists eKitabu Reader under desktop apps and as available for Linux, but I don't know how/where to get it. I've tested Thorium with epubs that have Media Overlays (audio) and it seems to work well, not sure about video support (I guess it depends on what the underlying Electron/Chromium supports). Perhaps a web reader could work for your particular epubs - I've stumbled upon Colibrio which does support EPUB Media Overlays.

Great epub reader.
Unfortunately I bought a few epubs with Javascript and videos/audios. It requires something like Readium, unfortunately the chrome app's version was discontinued.

Is this the only readium-based epub reader on linux?
