Kobo_Touch_LP.jpg

Hello /lit/
I, for long used my Kobo to read Epub, but many books that interest me are in pdf, and I think we all agree that it's horrible to read on Kobo.
I've came to ask if any of you know a way to change the program with a better one, more adapted to pdf reading, like you can do with RockBox for some walkman.
I, in advance, apologize if you can't understood someparts of what I wrote, english isn't my first langage so sometimes my sentences may seems strange.
Thanks

I tried calibre, but it fail to convert correctly pdf to epub, the sentences seems randomly placed on the page

I'm not sure there's really a good program for converting pdf to some kind of text. It's a process that goes against the pdf format in a way, which is designed to lock up elements on a page.

that's the conclusion I came too, and that's why I ask if they're any program to replace the interface of kobo when it comes to read pdf, with a more adapted one

Are you guys reading these converted pdfs in landscape mode? It makes a huge difference.

That's how I >>7599572 >>7599637 read them (unconverted)
>>
>>7599670
Never tried, how you manage to do that please?
>>
>>7599726
For Kindle, press the options button in the corner when you have a book open and then press Landscape Mode. I don't know about Kobos.

>>7599554
In another thread anon recommended using a program called k2pdfopt first, then using Calibre. I haven't tried it yet, though- maybe you could have a go and report back?
>>
>>7600153
I'd like to try it, but I broke the cable, I'm waiting for a new one in the mail
>>
>>7599617
I've converted several. The best are the ones that have native OCR embedded, then you just crop out page numbers and headers and scrub hidden elements, Adobe portable is good for this.

Ocring is a whole different matter, it's a huge amount of editing and pirating, and by the end you've read the book anyways. I read pdf on tablet and ePub on kindle.
