You can install a previous calibre release, like this: sudo -v && sudo calibre-uninstall && wget -nv -O- -ebook.com/linux-installer.sh | sudo sh /dev/stdin version=4.23.0 Change 4.23.0 above to whatever version you want installed.
If you wish to revert to an earlier calibre release or download a calibre upgrade manually, download the tarball of that release from here (choose the 32-bit or 64-bit version, as appropriate). Assuming you want calibre in /opt/calibre, run the following command, changing the path to calibre-tarball.txz below as appropriate: sudo mkdir -p /opt/calibre && sudo rm -rf /opt/calibre/* && sudo tar xvf /path/to/downloaded/calibre-tarball.txz -C /opt/calibre && sudo /opt/calibre/calibre_postinstall Source install WARNING: calibre is a highly complex piece of software with lots of very finicky dependencies. If you install from source, you are on your own. Please do not open bug reports or expect any form of support. You have been warned. If you're still determined to install from source, read on: Make sure your system has Python 3 installed. Install the various dependencies listed below Run the following commands in a terminal: curl -L -ebook.com/dist/src | tar xvJcd calibre* && sudo python3 setup.py install

Initially open the available browser. Linux mint has Mozilla Firefox as its default browser, so we launched it and searched Google Chrome. This takes us to the official website of Google from where we can download Chrome.
To begin this method, we need to open the terminal. For installing Chrome, we have to download the .deb Package first as Linux mint is a Debian-based Linux distribution. As we have already downloaded it in the above method and it is saved in our system, we do not need to download it again.
If you've bought a book online recently, or downloaded a free public domain book at a site like Project Guttenberg, there's a good chance that it's a .mobi file. But you probably weren't able to open it because you didn't have the right software installed.
This will save it on your PC for offline viewing. You'll now find your downloaded book as a ".azw" file in "C:\Users\MY_USERNAME\Documents\My Kindle Content". For ex: "C:\Users\MY_USERNAME\Documents\My Kindle Content\B08137WHQ_EBOK.azw".
Clue: There is also a Chrome App called "Kindle Cloud Reader." You can install it and download your book for offline viewing too, but it uses a different format too. See comments under my question. On Windows you can find its offline book contents under the hidden folder "C:\Users\MY_USERNAME\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\databases\https_read.amazon.com_0". It contains, for example, two files named "85" and "86", with no file extension, but one is clearly the book since it's a few MB, while the other is 44KB or so. On Linux you can do a find in your home directory to find this location with sudo find . -iname \*amazon\*. I found the folder in: "~/.config/google-chrome/Profile 1/databases/https_read.amazon.com_0".
Download it from GitHub here: _tools/releases. Notice that the release notes state: "This release does not include any support for the KFX format Kindle ebooks that are often downloaded when using Kindle for PC/Mac 1.19 or later."
@GabrielStaples , your answer provides the full path, but I wanted to add a potential improvement: I just tried to install the exact same Kindle for PC 1.16 to playonlinux and it works like a charm. Ebook file location will depend on how you set it on kindle (Tools/Options/Content/Change Folder), the default being /home/user/Documents/My Kindle Content

Hello. i have installed on my notebook using mint 19.3 (my processor does not support 64 bits kernel). I actually followed all steps and it shows me, in the linux terminal, at the end, that Chrome OS has been installed. But when i reboot my screen goes black and nothing happens. Can you or someone help me, please. My notebook is an older Acer Aspire One Atom processor
Hi! I am trying to download chrome os for my school, about 40 dell laptops, and I really need this to work. Ive seen these exact same steps in a youtube video from someone else, and as soon as I go to download the linux cinnamon mint, there is no link. It is currently at Linux mint 20, but I found the linux mint 19.3, when I click on it, and click on cinnamon 64 bit, it does not download, i am brought to a page that says download mirrors and gives me a long list of other links. I really need help.
Not able to install linux on my chrome os. Every time it says error installing linux. The terminal gets installed but never opens. I have virtualisation options enabled in bios, connected to google dns too! What to do now?
Once the download is complete, please navigate to the directory where the file is saved, find the Google Chrome DEB installation package (google-chrome-stable_current_amd64.deb), and double-click on it.
And it worked. I can read the book, but I don't want to read the book on my little phone screen. So, I transferred the PDF file that Bluefire Reader downloaded to my laptop in hopes that I could open it using a simple PDF reader. Then I double click on the PDF file with a smirk on my face... and it asks me for a password.
I used the mintupgrade tool and everything looked fine at first glance. Than recognized that my printer and scanner drivers have been deleted and that I could not reach most of my favorite websites, e.g. linuxmint.comI used timeshift to restore my system, but the issues mentioned above are still present. Therefore I am using my smartphone for writung here.Due to my experience I cannot recommend to use the mintupgrade tool! Any ideas, how to fix the issues? 2b1af7f3a8
