Can anyone tell me why there is no kindle app for linux?
Can a Kindle Fire do as much as my Linux computer?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 9, 2012
Dear fellow Linux enthusiasts and users,
Can the Kindle Fire tablets coming out soon (Sept 14 and Nov. 20) do everything we could do on Ubuntu Linux?
For instance, will we be able to run Google Docs just as well, Google Chat, play audio and video on VLC, read PDFs?
I'm attracted to the Kindle Fire tablets because of the price. If I get an Kindle Fire, I do not plan on using it to buy Amazon Kindle ebooks or Amazon games or rent Amazon Prime online videos. If I get the Kindle Fire, it won't be because of the Amazon.com ecosystem. I would get the Kindle Fire as a tablet, not as an Amazon.com platform.

We're considering getting the Amazon Kindle 6" greyscale (the basic, $79 model at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0051QVESA/).
Question 1: Can the Kindle work with a Linux computer?
Q2: Particularly, how easy is it to add PDF, HTML, JPG, PNG to your Kindle using a Linux computer?

Kindle Paperwhite and Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 2, 2012
I'm tempted by an Amazon Kindle Paperwhite but I have a few questions that are either specific to this model or maybe to all Kindles (I've never seen one). What happens when you connect one to an Ubuntu PC ? Do you see its content in mass storage mode or is it the same locked-down **** as an iPhone ?
If so, can you put pdf, epub, cbz, cbr, etc on it and read them or is it limited to accessing content via wifi/3G only from Amazon ?
Yeah, I know it's not out yet, but how do the older models fare on that ?
Reading Kindle on Linux

A web app came out for Google Chrome/Chromium. It allows you to read your Kindle books in your browser.
I did a search, and apparently nobody posted this yet here, so there you go!
Kindle for Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 8, 2013
I have Kindle PC on my Windows notebook computer which lets me download and read Kindle e-books on the notebook. Is there an equivalent app for Linux so I can do the same with my Linux notebook?
If not, is it possible to run Kindle PC under Wine? I haven't had great success in learning to use Wine. For example, I tried to install Winamp, but wasn't successful.
I'm not very experienced in Linux, so I'm not interested in anything that takes a lot of knowledge/skill, especially command line. I'm running Mint - Feisty, I think, but not sure and not sure how to find out. I switched from Kubuntu to Mint because it claims to be more suited to someone like myself who just wants to be a user, on an alternate OS to Windows.
Charging Kindle 3 using Linux
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 24, 2011
I'm having trouble charging my Amazon Kindle 3 using my laptop running ubuntu Natty.
Using windows on the same laptop (same cable, usb port,...) the Kindle charges fine.
Using Ubuntu, it does not. I suspect it is a USB power issue. I tried the following, without success:
- Ejecting the Kindle
- Disabling usb power management:
-- lsusb, get bus and device ID, the Kindle appears to show up as "Lab126"
-- echo on > /sys/bus/usb/devices/M-N/power/level, with M the bus id from lsusb and N the device nr minus one from lsusb (not sure how the bus and device IDs map to the devices under sys, but idVendor is correct)
Mounting the kindle and using it as a storage device works fine. The yellow led lights up when it's connected, but it does not charge. The Kindle is notoriously picky when it comes to voltage and power to charge. It does however not appear to be a hardware issue, as it works fine under Windows.
This problem seems to have appeared after a re

I am planning to buy a kindle ereader. Is there a particular model that works in linux. I just want to know if it mounts as a mass storage device so I can transfer non DRM files.

We've all heard the horror stories of Amazon swindling the user out of their content on the Kindle, but this time they've managed to do it preemptively: by blocking the GFDL licensed Arch Linux Handbook from the Kindle Store.
