I have tested your activity FBReader and i found some problems:
* If "rainbow" is enabled the activity doesn't work.
* If I open a book, i have to remove the content of "activity/instance/"
folder for open it again.
I know that this activity has sense on sugar 0.82. In sugar 0.84 I am able
to use the activity Read. However, in sugar 0.84 I have some problems with
"Read". When I want to change the page the activity get stuck. Maybe this
depend on the epub format version that I am testing.
Do you know if the activity FBReader for sugar 0.82 and the activity Read
for 0.84 have some problem?
