Epub Readers for Ubuntu: Calibre and FBReader

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

Install Calibre:
$ 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.

Install FBReader:
$ sudo apt-get install fbreader
