A little different twist but kind of the same question.

I have a toughbook laptop that is running Ubuntu 9.10 solely.

I have Calibre installed and would like to use Overdrive to access "free" ebook downloads from my library, but there is no direct linux software.

If I install Android emulator on the laptop. http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-t...u-115152.shtml

And . . .

Load the OverDrive version for Android through the emulator http://www.overdrive.com/software/omc/

Will I be able to download books through all this and into Calibre, then on to my Sony505?

Complete noob to everything listed above, just trying to get the most out of ebooks and a library card.

Thanks, Chris
