Thread: Help with Books symlink

  1. #1
    Default Help with Books symlink
    ok ive searched and there are a number of threads about this poblem, but the suggested solution doesnt seem to work for me.

    the problem.; im on 1.1.2 and my EBooks folder is in /private/var/ROOT/media/Ebooks

    this is the folder my Books.app reads files from, but new books that i download from installer go in to /private/var/MOBILE/media/EBooks and therefore the app doesnt see them.

    the suggested solution was to run

    ln -s /var/root/Media/EBooks/ /var/mobile/Media/EBooks/

    but if i do this i get an error "1" the file exists. i thought this meant i couldnt do it if i already had the Mobile/Media/Ebooks folder so i delete that and then run the command again and i get an error "1" file DOES NOT exist. so it seems i cant run it either with or without the folder.


    can anyone help please?

    You could SSH in to your ipod and move the books to the other folder.

    yeah thanks. i was thinking though of doing it on the fly when im not near my pc.

    i realised i can do it with finder to move them, and ive also got symlinks set now so that i can view them in safari using the doc viewer setup i found on here.

    also i guess i should just download when i can from the source that still puts them in the root folder (forget which one of the 3 sources i have that doesnt do it, but the other 2 both go directly to the root one)
