sync okular bookmarks

Fri Jan 18, 2013 7:04 am
One of the features i have come to rely on is the bookmarks. I am a student and use only digital textbooks (when I started grad school i decided I wasn't paying for anymore) and many of these do not come with table of contents or even correct page numbers. If anyone knows where the settings file is kept that stores bookmarks, maybe I could copy that and find a way to sync it with my other machine?

The file is $KDEHOME/share/apps/okular/bookmarks.xml, where $KDEHOME is the output of the command
Code: Select all
kde4-config --localprefix
- usually ~/.kde4

Thank you, you're my hero. I suspect I am not posting this to the correct place, but while I am an avid techie and tinkerer, I'm not a very avid forum participant (lurking only). Anyway, I have added cron jobs to sync the bookmarks to my different users on the same machine (I have an account just for work time with no FB and other time sucks). I am also adding a cron job to sync it to my dropbox so I can sync across different machines. A bug I noticed that is not present in the Mint (presumably KDE) version, while I can rename bookmarks in the ubuntu version, I can't rename the bookmark for the whole book, it just lists the absolute path. I went into the xml file after you told me the location and changed the title of the books by hand, but Okular still didn't show the title. I assume that in the gnome/unity version the bookmark title for the book itself lists the book rather than the title.

Marked as solved.

If this is the case, and bug reports were opened (and are still open), please comment on them to indicate that the issue has been fixed so a developer can confirm and close the bug reports.

I will be happy to do so, but like I said I'm new to development participation as well as forum participation. Can you point me in the general direction?

And excuse me while I punch this clearly deceased horse a few more times...but now that I know where to find the bookmarks file, and that it is just XML, I am pondering the option of creating several of these by category. I have around 8gb of textbooks and I am a grad student so it is rare that all subject matter is covered in one resource, so I have begun making bookmarks for my most used texts. It would be nice to be able to switch bookmarks file from within the gui, or even just add one higher level of categories to the bookmarks. I may tinker and see if I can just do it with the xml.
