When I extract myself and try to add it opens the Kindle Collections folder and then the Images folder and then stops. What am I doing wrong?
don't touch that file, it is fine.

Since you did it this way:
Open Preferences: Plug-in: Use the Load Plug in from (zip) file button: point it to the plug-in you downloaded.


Now for the EASY Way

Preferences: Get Plugins: (not installed) select from list (Internet connection is needed)

I already deleted the file..and there was/is no "load plug in from zip file" button. Also I dont see a "get plugins" option. Under preferences I can select "Plugins" and there is no "get plugin" button there either. Just the add bar at the bottom that lets me search my computer.

ETA: I just realized I have version 0.7.18....thought it was more recent and am sure that is the issue. I cannot find an update option in the menus anywhere however. Where is it?

Don't use the one from your distribution. Go to the web site http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux
