What's the value add of this over our existing ebook reader and management software?

It's just that compared to Calibre, this software offers less editing or library management functionality. On the other hand, it seems more pleasant to the eye for PC reading, especially for comic books.

And how would it compare against FBReader?

I just installed FBreader to run the test. Main windows highlights the book covers, it's more user-friendly. Reading is easier. There's a built-in dictionary.
you can take a look at this article, everything is there: https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2018/03/lector-qt-ebook-reader-app-for-kde

Sound really good, would be nice to have this in Solus.

Good morning,

Is this request for packages abandoned? Not validated? Not feasible?

Thank you very much
