What is it?
BookListGen GUI is a graphical version of BookListGen
(A BookList generator
for the Sony Sony LIBRIe
e-book reader. It's written in C#/GTK# and runs under the mono
platform on Linux, as well as MS .NET on Windows. BookListGen GUI is released under the GPL license.
What can it do?
Basically, it allows you to get books onto
your LIBRIe. BookListGen GUI can also create the LIBRIe's
required directory structure on a mounted memory stick. This
allows the LRF files to be read from this memory stick when it is
inserted into the LIBRIe. As of version 0.6.5, the full XML
meta-information for the BookList/LRF file can also be edited. Full
instructions are provided in the README
file included. More information can also be found on the LIBRIe Wiki
, and the Yahoo LIBRIe Group
What do I need?
Firstly, you need #ZipLib
in order to run/compile the BookListGen GUI. Just download the zip,
extract it and drop ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.dll into the same directory
as BookListGen GUI.
You also need mono/.NET installed. I'm using the mono 1.0 which is
included in Debian unstable, but anything recent should be fine.
If you're using MS .NET on Win32, you will also need the GTK# for Win32
- A memory stick and memory stick reader. (I recommend the Belkin USB 2.0 15-in-1 reader for Linux users).
A LIBRIe e-book reader.
Where can I get it?
BookListGen GUI v0.7.5 can be downloaded in source code form from the following
Precompiled binaries for Win32 (0.7.5)/Linux (0.7.5) are included with this source package.
Who wrote this?
BookListGen GUI is written by me ( Peter Knowles
but it wouldn't have been possible without the information provided
by some of the members of the Yahoo LIBRIe Group. Any suggestions or
comments ( or patches, if you are so inclined ) are welcome.
