Standalone Server(linux) version just for collecting news?

Hi,
I have been using calibre to fetch news from WSJ, FT.com, NYtimes etc. I leave the software running on my computer all the time and download the files using Kindle's browswer. However, I'm also running my own linux server. I wonder whether we could make a command line version of calibre which just fetch news and covert to mobi?

Thanks

That means you did not install properly calibre. You must install complete calibre package.

I did, but I just use the instruction provided on the website. Do I have to compile calibre form debian?

You could try. I can not help you since I use Fedora.
