Recently had to rebuild a school netbook - Microsoft wanted more money to repurchase Windows. I disagreed and have rebuilt totally using Linux. Wanting to borrow some eBooks from our library which recommends Digital Editions to convert the epub content, but cannot find a linux installation. Can you advise please?
I'd prefer an RPM, but happy to just unzip the content. If there is no standard package, are there other known alternate mechanisms?
There is no Linux version of Adobe Digital Editions.
There is the standalone installer (Windows/Mac) at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/digitalpublishing/ that may or may not work for you.
Some of the users have got it running under WINE. You can try the same but Adobe wont offer support if you can't access your library.
