    First...

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
    
    sudo apt-get update
    
    sudo apt-get install wine1.3
    Second...

    Download Kindle for PC and right mouse click on the file to "open with wine windows program loader".
    I can confirm this works on Ubuntu 10.10 (64bit), using the very latest Kindle PC (v1.4.1, 17.0Mb) just perfectly.

    Thank you very much!

    Apparently you can also load your kindle books from Calibre. Calibre is a native ubuntu app http://bit.ly/jYbmmI
    The set up for Kindle is detailed here http://bit.ly/jbDBfo

    Angry Re: Kindle for PC /Wine

    So, I finally got the old Beta working per the instructions above and several (non-purging) attempts. (Thank you all!)

    However, there is still a big problem: the very reason I spent the energy and time to do this (already owning and enjoying a Kindle device) was to be able to access the computer-reader-only "Print Replica" versions of books now available. When I go to the Kindle Store and attempt to purchase one, I am asked to install the app.

    I immediately checked my Amazon account and confirmed that the reader app IS in fact registered to my account, so that's not it.

    Any ideas?

    WINE 1.2.2
    Ubuntu 11.04
    Chromium 12.0.742.112 (90304)

    Thanks!
    ~Warren

    EDIT: I don't know how to apply/utilize the "patch" linked to earlier

    When I try to install Kindle for PC under 12.04, this is what I get. Any idea?

    Dude, there is no need to install kindle for pc anymore. Just use the Cloud Reader app for Chrome (chromium). Can read your kindle books offline just fine.

    Re: Kindle for PC /Wine

    Hi jzaragoza,
    I was getting the same error when installing/running Kindle for PC under PlayOnLinux. What fixed it for me was re-installing vcrun2008.

    HTH, Cheers
