Installation instructions:

Due to the fact that Calibre is not available via any PPA or repository, we need to use the install script in order to install this software on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Debian and other Linux distributions.

$ sudo -v && wget -nv -O- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/kovidgoyal/calibre/master/setup/linux-installer.py | sudo python -c “import sys; main=lambda:sys.stderr.write(‘Download failed\n’); exec(sys.stdin.read()); main()”
