Calibre (Linux) Install

Hi Everybody,

Just about to get my first eBook device and read that Calibre is a great way to organise things.

I've been to the Calibre download page and can't seem to get the Linux version.

Anybody got any idea's what the problem might be ?

With Thanks

Clive

It is not a direct download like Win, Mac or Portable versions

You paste that command into a console prompt, then supply the admin password for the 'sudo'

Apologies, I hadn't realised the Linux download of Calibre had to be done using a command line copied & pasted into the Terminal window.

All sorted and working now

Just put it down to my age
