The two will hopefully be merged into one awesome release real soon now.
For those with a 64-bit installation, you may need to get libzip as a 32-bit library.

For those on Debian based (64-bit) distributions (e.g. Ubuntu):
First you need ia32-libs
Code:
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Install the downloaded package with
Code:
sudo dpkg --force-architecture -i kobo-desktop.deb
Install getlibs by getting the latest from http://frozenfox.freehostia.com/cappy/ and installing
then install the needed libraries (in this case libzip)
Code:
getlibs -p libzip1
The software can now be launched from /usr/bin/Kobo with
Code:
Kobo
