Hello Linux Geeksters.
In this article I show you how to install the Calibre or FBReader Epub readers on Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.10 and Ubuntu 12.04.
There are a few nice programs that can do this job. The first recommandation is Calibre 0.9.23.
How to install Calibre on Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.10 and Ubuntu 12.04:
Add the repo:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:n-muench/calibre
Update the repo index:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install calibre
How to install FBReader on Ubuntu 13.04, Ubuntu 12.10 and Ubuntu 12.04:
FBReader is a little buggy at the moment, but it successfully reads .epub files. It is in the default repos, so al you have to do is to install it, via command line.
$ sudo apt-get install fbreader
