Can't download linux versions of calibre

Hi,

I don't know if it is just me but there are no links on the linux pages of the calibre website to actually download the software. There are obvious links on the Windows and Mac pages.

Is the linux version not currently available for some reason?

https://calibre.kovidgoyal.net/download_linux

Thanks,

cartz.

Each distro link contains installation instructions, not a link to a downloadable tarball. It's a very easy process: copy the instructions and paste them into a terminal. For Ubuntu:
command one:
Quote:
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools python-imaging libqt4-core libqt4-gui \
python-qt4 python-mechanize imagemagick \
xdg-utils python-dbus python-lxml python-genshi \
help2man
command two
Quote:
sudo easy_install -U TTFQuery calibre
command three:
Quote:
sudo calibre_postinstall
As soon as all three commands successfully complete, calibre is installed.
