    running calibre (great ebook manager) on a LINUX guest / host


    Hi folks

    If you have a Linux guest / host with a GUI then it's simple to run Calibre -- really great FREE ebook manager and converter.

    as roou (su) type following command

    "# wget -nv -O- https://download.calibre-ebook.com/linux-installer.sh | sh /dev/stdin"

    Ignore the quotation marks at start and end of the command - they are there to stop url getting translated into text etc.


    then you'll be able to start calibre and the interface will be set up. Same interface as windows but I tend to run mainly Linux hosts though.

    Note for distros like ubuntu where you can't get to su command directly simply type sudo su and then you are in su mode

    Cheers

    Calibre ebook management


    Hi there

    If you like e-books - great piece of Free software which also converts to all ebook formats so if you want MOBI / EPUB etc etc.

    64 bit version for windows also available -- and it also works on LINUX (easily installable too) - running on CENTOS 7 shown here. Also works absolutely fine on Windows 10 too.
