native French speaking people : Calibre disponible Subject description: go to french topic
français de France et francophones d'Afrique ou d'ailleurs, tout sur Calibre ici
Calibre available and explained to french speaking people on the forum francophone. _________________ Passenger Pelo ! don't ask him to repair the aircraft. Don't use him as a demining dog .... pleeease.
After trying couple linux versions Calibre and getting into dependency heck.... I tried the portable Calibre 3.31 windows version in wine-portable. It works, least best I know so far. I imported my Kindle books and with Apprentice Alf's plug in they are automatically de-DRM'd. Only had problems converting one to EPUB of those I tried. Maybe just something with that particular book. I set WINE to win7.
The problem with other ereaders is they are ereaders only and dont DeDRM or convert between formats.
I was going to use the Puppy Package Manager in Xenialpup64 to install Calibre, but it was telling me something like 27 dependencies and close to 200MB of downloads. Even that doesnt always mean it will work.
I already use wine-portable for Kindle reader so the portable Calibre for windows was only like 56MB. No chasing down dependencies and hoping....
UPDATE: Ok apparently adding lot books at once overwhelms the Apprentice Alf plugin so some dont get de-DRM'd. I deleted that book I was having trouble with, then added it again. This time the plugin caught it and de-DRM'd it. I was then able to both open it and convert it to EPUB.
Just saying Calibre 3.31.0 portable works fine with WINE. At least its a relatively easy option if you want latest version of Calibre.
