Install Calibre 0.9.5 Library in Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal/Ubuntu 12.04 Precise/Linux Mint 12

Calibre is a free and open source e-book library management application developed by users of e-books for users of e-books.

It has a cornucopia of features divided into the following main categories:
  1. Library Management
  2. E-book conversion
  3. Syncing to e-book reader devices
  4. Downloading news from the web and converting it into e-book form
  5. Comprehensive e-book viewer
  6. Content server for online access to your book collection
New Features:
  • Font embedding: Add support for the CSS 3 Fonts module, which means you can embed font families that have more that the usual four faces, with the full set of font-stretch and font-weight variations. Of course, whether the fonts actually show up on a reader will depend on the readers' support for CSS 3.
  • Sharing by email: Allow specifying an 'alias' or friendly name by which to identify each email recipient.
  • Embedding fonts: Allow adding ttf/otf font files to calibre directly to be used for embedding. That way the fonts do not have to be installed system wide. You can add a font to calibre via the 'Add fonts' button in the font chooser dialog for embedding fonts.
  • E-book viewer: Add the ability to rotate images to the popup image viewer.
  • Generate cover: Speedup searching the system for a font that can render special characters
  • A new custom font scanner to locate all fonts on the system. Faster and less crash prone that fontconfig/freetype
  • Font family chooser: Show the faces available for a family when clicking on the family
Bug Fixes:
  • Get Books: Fix eHarlequin and Kobo stores.
  • Kobo driver: Fix a bug that could cause the on device book matching to fail in certain circumstances.
  • Kobo driver: When using a SD card do not delete shelves that contain on books on the card (there might be books in the shelf in the main memory).
  • Workaround for bug in the windows API CreateHardLink function that breaks using calibre libraries on some networked filesystems.
  • Template editor: Use dummy metadata instead of blank/unknown values
  • Windows: abort setting of title/author if any of the books' files are in use. Results in less surprising behavior than before, when the title/author would be changed, but the on disk location would not.
New news sources:
  • Pravda in english, italian and portuguese by Darko Miletic
  • Delco Times by Krittika Goyal
Improved news sources:
  • Financial Times UK
  • Science AAAS
  • The Atlantic
