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.

hi mouldy,

in xenialpup you can find the latest calibre in quickpet.

in other pups you can try this in a terminal (needs python so install the devx.sfs first)
Code:
wget --no-check-certificate -nv -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kovidgoyal/calibre/master/setup/linux-installer.py | python -c "import sys; main=lambda:sys.stderr.write('Download failed\n'); exec(sys.stdin.read()); main()"
