    Re: Kindle for PC /Wine

    Does anyone have a link to the old 5.2MB version? None of the ones from this forum seem to work anymore. Alternatively, any progress on a workaround or fix?

    I can confirm this version worked with Lucid (64-bit) running Wine 1.2-rc2.

    Hi,

    the obove link still gives the BETA version which works as explained when setting Win98 in wine for Kindle.

    Ubuntu 10.04, current updates with wine 1.2 rc4

    Cheers

    Re: Kindle for PC /Wine

    I wish I could say that this thread helped me. I've tried every tip in this thread, every tip that I can find anywhere and I always get the same error:

    fixme:system:SetProcessDPIAware stub!

    And only that error. The program never starts.

    Does anyone know what this might be?

    I don't see why you're all going through too much trouble. If you want to really express your concern to Amazon, get Barnes & Noble's Nook application and buy your e-books from them. The Nook app runs flawlessly under Wine 1.2.

    Here is another alternative, and it doesn't need Wine.

    Chapters-Indigo, a large Canadian book chain, markets a reader called "Kobo". They also have free Windows and Mac clients....

    AND they have a Linux client too!!!

    Which I have used for about three weeks now. It's not perfectly bug-free, but it's a pretty great reading experience nonetheless.

    I suggest anyone interest contact their customer care folks, who are very responsive. I would post the link but I think it's better to ask them directly since we all want them to know we value the effort they've made to provide a Linux e-reader!

    Email to support at kobo point zendesk point com and ask them about it!
    C'est ma façon de parler.
