You must become creative.
Very creative in searching, hunting, puzzle-solving, etc.
The difference with the maemo platform compared to other platforms is..
Other platforms...ie-droid, icrap, wp, etc. everything is what it is...and it is either available or not anymore. Then it is time to move on to the latest pile of bile and suck it up if you want what they are serving.

With the maemo platform all the goods, old, outdated, revised, new, everything...is kept...but it is up to community, teams, groups, projects and/or individuals to work on, figure out, etc.
Consequently we all are here as well to become more enlightened on topics, more knowledgeable and help new folks...
Enough time and you'll be needed to help with new folks.
It isn't mandatory.
But can't just watch new people get frustrated ...and not help.
And once you have the 770 tamed...well...we don't have too many guru's of the 770 around anymore ...especially 770 enlightened folks to help with new members who "just" got their new 770.
Just sayin' ....
Anyway...I blame no one for not lingering ...but instead wanting the latest and greatest...
Peeps can say "Meamo's got Fanboy's!" all they want...
But truth is... been around for a bit...
it is all about the love... that makes people linger ...that is really the truth.
Me...I just find it comfy...like an old favourite wool sweater, hot chocolate, a good stiff shot of rum, or whisky ...it just has a good feeling all around...that's what has gotten into my bones. Love chinook, diablo, fremantle, mer...it's all good.

Anyway...down to answers.
For example
if you are missing something and serious creativity is needed since you cannot connect via wifi and must download to pc then transfer to your 770 to install solutions...

A- If you go to gronmayer...go to the 2006 page...go to search...type libzlibrary...you will find packages. How you deal with them is another matter.

B- More pinpointed in approach.
If you go to https://fbreader.org/content/maemo
and go to zlibrary it will download the armel.deb for zlibrary to your pc...then transfer that armel.deb to your 770.
there is then absolutely no reason why you should have a problem with the dependencies.

Puzzle solving is the key with maemo.
Specific keywords in just the right order in say ...google search...for example ...can yield desired results.
Forget thinking sideways...
Forget thinking 'round corners..(okay that was a shameless Jethro Tull song plug)
Forget "thinking outside the box"
Think outside the tetractys.
For new people curiosity and a desire to poke and peer into things is a must.
You are on the right track leonicholson
